Mold Scammers

There is toxic mold in houses and there are honest mold remediation folks out there but unfortunately because they are not regulated you get some outright charlatans in the mold remediation business.  Some of these guys will say any house with a crawl space needs mold remediation which usually costs 5-15k.  These folk will also come in behind you on an inspection and say a house has toxic mold without testing it and use fear to convince the buyer they need a mold remediation when that may or may not be true.  They will more often than not say “Your home inspector should have told you”  In our state we are not required to report on mold nor could you without testing but we we do report on high moisture which is conducive for fungus and should be addressed.
