There was an interesting article recently on MSNBC that, using hidden cameras, revealed that some mold remediation professionals are charging customers for repairs that aren’t needed.
From MSNBC: “A basement playroom, a concerned mother, and a parade of mold contractors she called for help. "I have my son down here a lot, and there are some dark spots that I'm a little worried about," she tells them. But that mom is really an undercover TODAY show producer. And those spots aren't mold: They're really women's eye shadow. We know, because we put them there. So would these mold contractors know the difference, or charge us big money to solve a problem our experts say doesn't exist?"You're saying this is mold?" I asked one. “Do you want to hear what it really is? Women's eye shadow that we put there this morning." "Wow," the contractor replied.”
