The costs and liability for completing mold removal incorrectly are vast. For example, we were called out to an apartment complex that had a water damage problem in five joining units six months prior. The maintenance staff noticed small amounts of mold several weeks later. After cleaning the areas with bleach and painting the area with Kilz they thought that the problem was solved. They were unaware of the myth that bleach kills mold. Six months later our company was called out for mold testing due to the occupants of the property having severe respiratory issues. During our mold inspection, we found extensive amounts of mold in all five units. In only six months a mold removal project that would have consisted of a minimal expense of $1,000 to clean the units correctly, was now well over a $8,000 project. This does not include the expense that they incurred for moving five tenants, legal and medical fees associated with the mold. Absolutely, there are times that small amount of mold can be done by D-I-Y methods.
