    Hey Mold Remover, I have not found too many other forum which
    actually discuss the industry. Maybe this place can be
    resurrected now that the pizzin matches are over.

    We do a lot of consulting regarding indoor air quality issues
    related to mold, asbestos, and other contamination. I find that
    most folks simply ignore the warning signs until mold is
    literally walking across the floor ready to attack. I was at a
    house on Monday where mold was through the drywall and marching
    down the wall from a roof leak.

    When I asked how long the leak had been a problem she said “Oh,
    about 6 months or so”.
    Did you have the roof leak fixed?
    “No not yet, but I wanted that mold gone”.
    “But you need to fix the leak first”
    “I don’t care, I want the mold gone.”
    “Ahhh, call ServiceM, they will take care of you”

    Folks simply do not understand the concept of home maintenance.
