Against Mold Scams
Because the mold industry is so new, it is currently
unregulated and unlicensed. Because the demand for mold testing and mold remediation is
so high, there do exist, unfortunately, mold scammers who want to separate property
owners from their money rather than from their mold problems. To avoid being a victim of
a mold scam, if you have a possible mold problem, please hire a
Certified Mold Inspector or Certified Mold Investigator,
Certified Mold Contractor or Certified Mold Remediator. Here are several of the
leading mold scams:
Insurance Companies and Insurance Adjusters as Scammers
Here are several mold frauds perpetrated by insurance companies and
Hiring incompetent, low-paid, company-stooge
testing personnel to do the least possible mold testing in the least
likely mold-locations in an insured's property so that any actual mold is NOT
likely to be discovered.
Utilizing ineffective air cassettes so
that little or no mold will be discovered. Air cassettes test too small of an air
sample [just 150 cubic liters in a short 10 minute air test for the widely-used
air cassette] to give a truly accurate insight into a property's real mold
infestation problems. Direct sampling of visible molds and mold culture plates are
vastly superior to air cassettes in determining the true extent of mold problems
in a property and in identification of the molds present.
If the testing stooges uncover any mold problems,
the serious mold test results are not to be shared with the insureds and are to be
kept a complete secret forever from the insureds [this common insurance company
fraud is one of the causes of actions in the $20 million Ed McMahon lawsuit
against his homeowner's insurance company and its two insurance stooge testing and
remediation companies. The McMahon defendants kept secret mold test results
showing a serious mold infestation in the McMahon residence of the deadly mold
Telling insureds that there is no mold insurance
coverage even though there is evidence that insurance-covered water
damage is the direct cause of the resulting mold infestation.
House cooking is when the mold scammers introduce large numbers of
mold spores into the home or other building, and then increase the temperature and
humidity [e.g., shut off air conditioning, close windows and run humidifiers full
blast] to cause high levels of detectable mold to justify expensive mold remediation
work. For a more detailed look at house cooking, please click on:
Fraudulent Mold Testing
The mold scammers will bring back to you mold test
results showing big-time mold problems in your home or property. Unfortunately for
you, the mold samples are NOT actually from your home but are, in fact, samples that
had been intentionally infected [inoculated] with large amounts of mold species from
other locations or from mold collections maintained by the scammers.
Mold Remediation Shortcuts
Many fraudulent mold remediation jobs end with the mold problems as
great or greater than before the remediation work was done because of shortcuts
taken by the mold scammers and because of flawed remediation techniques, procedures,
and techniques utilized by the mold scammers who only care about getting your money,
rather than solving your family's mold crisis. One big shortcut is that many mold
remediators often rely on ineffective but cheap chlorine bleach as an alleged mold
killer. See the discussion on chlorine bleach below.
Using Ineffective Chlorine Bleach Because It Is Cheap!
Many mold remediation companies utilize cheap but ineffective
chlorine bleach as their preferred chemical to allegedly kill mold to cut corners
and costs in their mold remediation jobs. Unfortunately, chlorine bleach is not an
effective or lasting killer of mold and mold spores. Bleach is good only for
changing the color of the mold. Three weeks after treatment with chlorine bleach,
mold will return just as strong as before.
CHLORINE BLEACH IS INEFFECTIVE IN KILLING MOLD FOR
It is too diluted and
thus too weak to permanently kill mold.
What little killing
power chlorine bleach does have is diminished significantly as the bleach sits in
warehouses and on grocery store shelves or in your house or business [50% loss in
killing power in just the first 90 days inside a never opened jug or container].
Chlorine constantly escapes through the plastic walls of its containers.
Its ion structure
prevents chlorine from penetrating into porous materials such as drywall and
wood---it just stays on the outside surface, whereas mold has enzyme roots growing
inside the porous construction materials, and
Chlorine Bleach is
NOT registered with the EPA as a disinfectant to kill mold. You can verify that
important fact yourself when you are unable to find an EPA registration number for
killing mold on the label of any brand of chlorine bleach.
Quaternary ammonium compounds are far more effective than bleach in permanently
killing mold contamination.
