Complaint ResolutionIf a project goes badly, Angie’s List has a complaint resolution team standing by to help you.
I had a mold problem in the North side of my attic ( which is living space) that was caused by the second floor's bathroom vents being vented into the attic and condensation being created. The improperly vented attic bathroom fan was creating mold in another portion of the attic. I had various other contactors not recognize the root causes of the problems and/or suggest treating my entire attic for mold and reinsulating it with foam. This would have been an involved and very costly project. Guy instead suggested two more minimalist approaches, starting with the cheapest, most minimalist and then potentially expanding based on where the mold was found after peeling back the insulation. We started by simply reventing the attic fans out of the house, treating the visible mold and taking down only a small portion of the ceiling to address the known issue (they repaired the ceiling well). It turned out that this was all that was needed, as the mold issue was not as bad as feared and we were thus able to go with the most minimalist approach and avoid taking down much more of the ceiling.
This team deserves an A+.
The inspection was a little pricey and you have to pay for the samples to be tested. They say the turnaround for the inspection report is 24 hours. Since it was a Saturday, we understood that we probably wouldn't receive it until Mon or Tuesday morning at the latest (as was stated by the operator and
Besides the report snag, I was happy with the services performed. The report helped us to convince the seller to lower the purchase price on the home.
My only grievance is that it the air testing results took much longer than promised to get. Two of the tests took >4 days to get back, and even longer to receive the final clearance report + certificate. I think they are excellent at what they do, and many other people know it, which causes their work load and schedules to get out of hand.
The job was going so well ... until the air tests after the mold remediation job failed. That's when I realized all the problems. Apparently there is an official mold remediation licensing specific to
After the first air test failed (2 of 3 areas), they returned to remove more drywall, plus also disconnect plumbing and remove a sink in the bathroom, which they did w/ care. So w/ larger holes in my ceiling + walls, a second attempt at hand cleaning + running air scrubbers for several days, they left and the air was retested ... and found that the closet again failed ... AND I had the areas immediately adjacent to the work areas additionally tested and found that the guest bedroom air quality now failed. At this point nerves were getting rattled from the extended amount of time, effort, and inconvenience being experienced by both sides. I suspected contamination from the suits while doing the job, they suspected mold contamination to the wood flooring. After agreeing to remove several floorboards (problems encountered, but I did agree to their removal), I asked to evaluate the situation and our options. At this point the realization occurred to me (before them) that the simplest explanation is the most likely, and that the tape sealing around the plastic was leaking, allowing air flow from the attic where the original mold began growing (leak from A/C drain not being properly designed and glued ... also meaning no flooring needed to be sawed + removed). After hesitation to remove visible mold from the attic (excuse was that 90% of all
In summary, the
NO OTHER INSPECTOR HAD LOOKED FOR NOR FOUND THIS TRAGIC FLAW!!!! The apartment management had been using their, ”no toxic mold found,” reports to protect themselves, and would never have admitted to there being a problem if
Anyone who questions the prices for “just taking a few samples,” needs to read a mold lab report to realize that those prices include the very expensive outside laboratory testing of those samples. I’ve compared the prices or other companies and the lab reports. I’ve discovered that the really inexpensive testing companies are the ones that are hired by the landlords who want nothing to be found! They want only very little, very careless testing done and few samples tested because the landlords or property seller DOES NOT WANT TO FIND ANY PROBLEMS!!!!
