Checking Mold Certifications

In a short addition to our Blog, we’ll discuss the importance of being certified in both Mold Inspection and Mold Remediation.  The first and foremost reason that such paperwork is required is because without proper certifications, insurance carriers will not issue a mold cert for the contractor.  And without mold insurance, home owners are not covered if the remediation should fail, if there is cross contamination or any other complication with the mold removal.  Prior to hiring any contractor, and without question before any contract is signed, ask your contractor for their certification in Mold Inspection, Mold Remediation and a certificate of insurance.  And be sure to call their insurance provider to insure the policy is still active and up to date, and that the work being preformed in your home is covered under their policy.  Any contractor refusing or delaying in providing such information is most likely not certified or insured or both.  Visit our website at biowashing.com
