Mold Scam Stories

I refer to the word “scam” however maybe a bit unforgiving or harsh, but perhaps maybe uneducated, inexperienced or green, a great number of mold inspections that I’ve encountered produce unnecessary remediation and are costly.  

Have you been subjective to any of the following diagnosis to your indoor air quality problems?

  • The infamous "You Have Black Mold" statement.
  • Mold has roots and those roots are imbedded in the drywall so therefore we have to take out all the drywall.
  • How about the incompetent “mold inspector” that collects one sample in the house then one sample outside as a “control” and says remediation is a must for a low…low price because the indoors mold spore counts were high on the interior sample.
  • The sample was collected in a sump pump pit closet and the idiot “mold sampler” suggests remediation.
  • Some companies are using an ATP test kit.  ATP is a molecule found in and around living cells, and as such it gives a direct measure of biological concentration and health. ATP is quantified by measuring the light produced through its reaction with the naturally occurring firefly enzyme through a luminometer. The amount of light produced is directly proportional to the amount of living organisms present in the sample.  Question is what is high or low?  What government agency or medical association has determined good or bad?  Answer…none.  Businesses and consumers need to be educated on true science.  

Those stories and much more to come and the defense I’ll teach you to rebut those scam artists.
