I will not be posting to facebook next week. I have been invited to be a business counselor in Athens for High School students interested in business. They will learn how to write a business plan, marketing plan, find financial support, form a company. This is a week long 13 hour day boot camp. Dont you wish you could have done this!! The program is called Ohio Business Week, and you can find it on the net or Youtube. It is good for the soul to stop chasing money for awhile and do something good for others. Find a venue for yourself.

I have been asked to provide a cost estimate to remove mold from an attic. This house has a perfect rectangular roof structure. So I am always interested in why the growth occurs with a simple design system that should work. I went into the attic and saw an oversized cut for the ridge vent. Way too big (4 inches); and there are soffit baffles between each truss. What is preventing the normal exhaust and intake of air into the attic? There was solid mold growth from soffit to ridge vent to each gable. Solid growth. I didn’t see a problem with the intake and exhaust so I got up on the roof. There were water stains on the siding from condensation in the attic. The soffits appeared to be clogged, or not well manufactured; the openings did not appear to be completely clear, the property owner assured me they had never been painted. In the open spaces of the ridge vent, there is a cardboard material completely filling the air gap of the vent. I came to the conclusion that even although the ridge vent is a high profile, it could not be allowing the air to escape. It was a warm day and the attic was hot and humid, but when I put my hand on the side of the ridge vent, there was no air escaping. Voila!!! It is my understanding that this ridge vent is sold under 5 or 6 different names and is common. So during your inspections, even though you see that everything is there that you would expect, but things may not be work correctly. The give-away to me was the water staining on the siding coming from the attic. It was not apparent from the ground, so don’t be afraid of taking a ladder and using it.

I obtained a copy of a competitors proposal to complete mold abatement activities in an attic. ALL national mold abatement standards state that removal is the goal, while not allowing for the spread of airborne debris. This competitor does not use an egress chamber to get in and out of the attic, place the attic under negative pressure, cover the insulation with plastic, remove the mold contamination, or do any post abatement cleaning. All they do is HEPA vacuum the areas that have mold growth, fog with a liquid antimicrobial product, and then spray paint an antimicrobial encapsulant. This technical approach does not follow any national mold abatement standard and is not legally defendible in court. BUT, it is not illegal in Ohio. When you are dealing with a client, allow me to encourage you to talk about the value of doing something correctly (what every issue you are addressing) and not be focused on cheap. This competitor on one quarter our proposal cost and they will be onsite one day compaired to us being their 4 or 5 days. Most clients think services are a commodity and dont realize the differences. So try to point them in the correct direction; remember that the lowest price is not the cheapest long term.

There is a holiday weekend coming up and I recommend that you try and invest in yourself where you normally dont have time during a normal business week. I have decided to finish the 3 minute video clips that I have made on different topics of construction science and moisture control so I can post them here and on LinkedIn. Pick something that is important to you that has been on the back burner for awhile; get it done. Learn something and be better than your competition.
