Homeowners have always
been exposed to unwanted moisture intrusion into a home,
though dozens of sources such as: roof leaks, clogged
gutters, poor grading, air conditioning coil leaks,
shower or bath leaks, dishwasher leaks, plumbing leaks,
overflowing toilets, etc. In the past when this occurred
a homeowner simply repaired the leak and went on about
their life. If mold or mildew developed, a homeowner
washed it off and cleaned it with chemicals like bleach,
and went on about their life. In the past few
years a new type of mold called "STACHYBOTRYS" has been
discovered. This particular type of mold has
proven to pose a serious health hazard to many people,
and is very difficult or impossible to get rid of.
In several cases it
has been proven, that the only way to completely eliminate
the mold problem is to destroy the home. Ouch!!
This hot new issue has had a lot of press and media
coverage, starting out with the 32 million dollar settlement
against State Farm Insurance in Texas.
This seminar will focus
on mold in general and how the Inspector can protect
themselves and their clients from this environmental
hazard - and learn how to test for it.
