When the results came back, it was determined that mold was growing on the ceiling and walls of a room in our house. He instructed us to get some bids from local Mold Remediation Companies. This was done, and the area where the mold was found was cut out and cleaned up.
, was called back to take new air samples to determined if all the mold was removed. Upon further testing, it was discovered that some mold still was present.
worked with the Remediation Company to find a solution to remove the remaining mold spores. After the new air samples were made and sent to the lab, the results came back all clear. I must say, that
was very professional with the way he went about his business. He was very concerned about my wife's health and even called back a few weeks after the job was completed to see if she was doing better. I would certainly use CMA again if the need arises and I would highly recommend
to anyone who has or suspect that there might be mold present in their home.

is fantastic! We have used him in the past and have given him referrals many times. Clean, punctual and thorough. He goes over your home with a fine toothed comb and finds any issues or potential problems. Our a/c unit failed recently and we were concerned about mold buildup in various areas of our home.
came out and did a complete inspection. He is easy to talk to and tells you exactly what you need to do to fix his findings. He is also extremely helpful in making suggestions that are cost effective. We called him for mold, but he knows his stuff about all aspects of your home. He looked over the new a/c unit to make sure it was done correctly to prevent any mildew issues. He also give instructions on installing our dishwasher properly. A+

The inspector was very professional, experiences, and helpful. He did a very thorough inspection of our building and provided us with a number of recommendations. We have implemented the recommendations, which appear to be eliminating the odor.

ACR's work has twice failed post-remediation clearance testing. I have given ACR the opportunity to address the problems revealed by the inspection reports, but the company has refused. The licensed mold inspector that conducted the post-remediation clearance testing advised me to report ACR to the State of Florida’s Department of Business and Professional Regulation. ACR has left me no choice but to do so, and to share my experiences through this review.
The summary
There are 3 major problems with ACR's work in our home:
1. Illegitimate Encapsulation -- Contrary to EPA and industry protocols, moldy drywall was not removed, but was instead
painted over with an opaque, black encapsulate.
2. No Protective Containment -- The company removed mold without containing work areas to prevent contamination of the rest of our home.
3. Refusing Responsibility -- ACR sealed off mold left behind to skew air sample test results, and responded to the failed
post-remediation clearance testing by walking away from the job.
The details
1. Illegitimate Encapsulation
The contract states that encapsulation would be applied to exposed wood framing. However, ACR sprayed large areas of drywall with an opaque, black encapsulate. Anyone considering hiring a company to conduct mold remediation should google "mold encapsulation" to educate themselves regarding the legitimate and illegitimate uses of such a product; such a
Tampa Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
reveals that the use of encapsulates on mold is widely known as a possible scam. There are legitimate uses of encapsulate, but it is a technique of last resort. It can be used on wood framing after it has been cleaned and sanded, but moldy drywall must be
discarded and replaced, not encapsulated (see the EPA's "A Brief Guide to Mold, Moisture, and Your Home" and the more detailed "Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings," both available on the web). A quote from the report by the inspector who conducted our post-remediation clearance testing: "The established EPA protocol for mold remediation of damaged drywall is to remove and replace.
Tampa Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
of ACR has not followed the proper protocol as set forth by the EPA."
Moreover, when encapsulation is legitimately used as a last resort, it is usually transparent. In our home, ACR used an opaque, black encapsulate. It is impossible to see what they covered with the encapsulate. When I asked for photographs of cleaned areas prior to the application of the encapsulate, I was told none were available. When I asked why the encapsulate used was black, the explanation
Tampa Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
offered was that the other pail they had on the job was bad, so they had to use the black.
2. No Protective Containment
The contract with ACR specifies that "negative pressure containment using
Tampa Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
filtered air cleaners" would be used during the remediation. The morning the work began, I informed
Tampa Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
that we would be seeking clearance testing, and he assured me that the containment barriers would be left in place until after the lab test results were received. But when the inspector arrived to take the air samples, he discovered that no containment was in place. I called
Tampa Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
, and he said that the containment could not be kept in place because the residents of the house (who speak limited English) kept walking through it, to remove
their belongings from the work area. ACR could have easily reached me on my cellphone to give me the opportunity to intervene and translate, so that the
Tampa Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
would not have been compromised. But ACR did not at any point notify me of any problem, and did not inform me that the mold remediation was done without containment protecting the rest of our home.
Tampa Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
acknowledged the lack of containment only after the clearance testing inspector arrived at the house and found that no containment
Tampa Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
was in place.
3. Refusing Responsibility
Following ACR's mold remediation, I requested clearance testing. The lab report indicated spores (including of Stachybotrys or "black mold") were present in the air samples from the remediated areas. After I sent ACR the report, they offered to come back out, reclean, and leave air scrubbers running all weekend, and I was grateful for this. ACR also said we needed to have the air ducts cleaned, so we paid a company to do that. After all this, I requested a second round of clearance testing. When the licensed mold inspector arrived, he found that ACR had covered some moldy areas with plastic and tape. A quote from this inspector's report: "The sealing off of the tub cavity and the adjacent vanity in the hall bath was an attempt to cover up additional mold and skew the air sample test results. It also indicates
Tampa Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
of ACR knew the additional mold existed." The inspector removed some drywall paper from the work area and sent it to a mold lab. That sample, and several others, tested positive for mold.
I forwarded the 2nd clearance testing report to ACR.
Tampa Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
responded that ACR would not address the report's findings because the needed work entails replacing wood framing and plumbing, which is outside the company's licensing. However, I have never asked ACR to address framing or plumbing. I hired ACR only to remediate mold.
Our contract with ACR says that the company will "Remove and dispose the damaged drywall in the hall and around the shower. Attempt to save the tile if possible in the shower," and "Remove and dispose the damaged drywall in the closet and bathroom around the toilet where needed. Attempt to save the tile if possible in the shower." It was clear from the outset that it
might not be possible to save the tile, and I was prepared to pay ACR more if the scope of the job widened. ACR failed to complete the work of removing and disposing of damaged drywall, violating our contract. We have given ACR the opportunity to correct the problems revealed in post-remediation clearance testing, but ACR has refused.

Terrible smell. Thought it was mold. Exam showed black insulation inside unit covered in mold and drain

that did not drain right. Was given list of recommendations to try to get rid of mold in insulation inside handler (replace insulation) and have drainage
Tampa Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
reconstructed to have drippings drip downward. Was given 3 referrals to a/c contractors.

Humor me while I share what the referrals said. One gave (high) estimate, one couldn't be seen in my neighborhood with his truck with advertisement in my driveway for fear of loosing referrals, and the third examined, but did not send an estimate or respond to voicemail or email requesting estimate. I reported all 3 of these responses to
Tampa Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
so they could use their own judgement on these three referrals. Apparently they do well with other customers that don't have mold issues.

I hired an a/c contractor with a brain. Mold was not as bad as perceived (though I would die soon). It was cleaned up. Drain
Tampa Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
was sufficient, and cleaned up. Unit cleaned to he
Tampa Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
. Smell was addressed. It was not mold. It was a drain pipe in a washer/dryer closet next to a/c that had not been plugged after several years of not being used. I was smelling sewer. Smoking gun found.

Please understand, the C grade is because of the referrals. I expected more, and was really shocked. Many lessons learned.

Thank you, Lord, for giving me

The job was done very professionally. The engineers showed on time, did a thorough inspection of the entire hose from the attic to the foundation. They did a survey, lifted surface samples with tape and took air samples for allergens. They were very thorough and professional, knew what to do and how to do so no wasted time or effort. They did and data analysis and provided an understandable written report. I highly recommend them. A contractor of choice if you think you have a drywall problem.
