In many states, including Florida, it is a conflict of interest to conduct both mold remediation and testing simultaneously by the same company. Yes, we've seen it, and we're not sure how some companies are getting away with this ... but if discovered and reported to the DBPR (Department of Business and Professional Regulation), punishments may be incurred, including financial penalties and suspension/revocation of license. We are ethical, love our license, and want to keep it!
Although we do have a remediator's license (because we need to know how to write reports that instruct the remediation company how to get rid of the mold) WE AVOID ALL CONFLICTS OF INTEREST, ONLY CONDUCT MOLD TESTING, AND LEAVE THE REMEDIATION PART TO OTHER LICENSED PROFESSIONALS.
We do not conduct remediation, but mold can be a little tricky sometimes, and we are always available to consult with your remediator, public adjuster, insurance adjuster, contractor, handiman, and of course, the home/property owner regarding report findings, cleaning/sanitation, and other recommendations and areas of expertise.
