Phoenix newstation investigates mold remediation firms and finds them fraudulent

Phoenix’s KPHO News 5 conducted an undercover investigation in which they placed a small smudge of MASCARA on a homeowner’s wall, called in several mold remediation companies to investigate the “mold-like substance,” and found that all but one were willing to charge thousands of dollars to remove the substance instead of having it tested first to determine its “make up.”  (Excuse the weak pun.)

This is indeed a sad statement about our industry and gives honorable mold remediators a bad name.  For the past several years, QuanTEM Laboratories has been conducting bi-annual Mold Investigator Training courses to prevent this type of recklessness and to help prospective mold investigators follow procedures that can limit liability and potential litigation.
