Home inspector/mold removal/contractor question
We have had professional mold remediation specialists look at my MIL's basement to give suggestions and quotes on a mold problem. Two of them agree that there is no active mold and that a good cleaning, removal of old paneling and some sort of treatment/coating is all that is necessary to get that part of the house in condition to put on the market. The 3rd person says that in addition to these steps shrubs need to be removed, soil graded away from the foundation and the installation of a humidifier are required. Quotes range from $1500 to nearly $7000. The high bidder seems to rely on the fact that as a home inspector/mold remediation specialist/contractor he is the only one really qualified to evaluate the situation. It seems to me that he is also the only one who is also creating additional income from this job by specifying additional work on the project. Am I wrong to be so skeptical? Your commits and expertise are most welcome!
