05-22-10 Initial Mold Test-Inglewood, California
Problems arose after an initial inspection by the home appraiser. You guessed it correctly, this home was for sale. Shortly after the report was given on the home, a handyman, cleaned and re-painted the surfaces with visible mold growth. Although, this style of mold clean up rarely ever works, our mold inspectors observed surface mold in several areas that had not been painted. Fun Guy Mold Inspectors can not see through painted surfaces, but a documented photos illustrated the conditions before the repairs took place. Fun Guy’s Mold remediation protocol was designed to remove the areas contaminated with mold growth.

This mold investigation sparked an interesting comment from the mold remediation contractor, “We were trying to keep the cost down for the clients.” At this stage FunGuy Mold Inspection & Consulting LLC observed a heavy layer of white primer painted over areas where mold growth was known to be growing. Fun Guy mold inspectors ‘failed’ the post remediation investigation and notified the mold remediation contractors that additional work needs to be completed to properly remove the mold.
