    Any mold guys here?

    So my father in law has been pretty sick the past few months. Testing out the wazzoo but just lots of inconclusive results.
    We were there earlier for Sunday dinner and I noticed there was a shit ton of blank mold around the ceiling fan and vent in one of their bathrooms.
    One may have nothing to do with the other but I’d like a professional opinion of cleaning/removing the mold regardless of any connection to his health.
    Their house is in Brentwood.

    I'm not a professional but I've read about it out the ying yang ( That's a technical term)
    If you see mold outside a vent then there's a TON of it in the duct works.
    They probabluy get a lot of condensation from the winter months form the hot air going up the vents.
    You need a mol;d guy to check it out.
    if you want to DIY you can but it is work.

    No matter what they need to cover there vents in winter and a fan in the attic on a timer will help too.
    Have you cjhecked the main filter?

        No plans to DYI this one. Before I let my fingers do the walking I thought I’d check here. No idea if this is related to his health issues or not but it does need to be addressed.

          Maybe, but I'll put this out there. If you find a mold guy, you WILL find mold. To say their business is shady is being overly generous.

            Had an issue with mold in my apartment. Complex told me to pound sand till I called in a mold guy. He was thorough worked on pricing and explained everything he did. Confirmed mold and the apartment complex sang a different tune all of a sudden. I’ll try and find his business if you want. Believe it was $100 per sample area with 1 control. He took an air sample, 2 samples from two ac units and a control $400. Got results in like 2 days.

                I agree that mold is a issue that has to be addressed but I also agree that mold contractors are like leaky basement contractors, con men.

                I own a condo in southern Florida were mold is a huge issue and I have seen my neighbors get ripped off by these mold specialists.

                Proceed with caution.
