I belong to 3 builder associations, a chamber of commerce, the BBB, and a networking group; and I am active in all of them. If you can, join organizations that help you get your name out there and meet people. But I want to mention something about reputation; it is everything, absolutely everything (But that does not mean you need to tolerate insane clients). Several years ago I was struggling in business because my competition was disgustingly incompetent. They would charge 1/4 the amount that would be needed to complete a project in accordance with any industry standard. (I said it would take 4 days and they would do it in 1; NOT). I spoke with my attorney about providing two levels of service, one level as lousy and stupid like the other companies, or second as legally defensible and professionally correct. You can guess what he said, and he was right. Most of those other companies lasted two or three years but are now gone. I have over 100 reviews with a 4.7 out of 5 star rating and people hire me because of this. Let me encourage you to stay strong during the hard times and have faith that it will work out. Never stop investing in your education and marketing your services. Work hard, be excellent, and education is what makes the difference. I hope some of the technical issues I have discussed have helped you, and I want to thank you for the positive feedback I have received.

When you work with an insurance company in dealing with water damaged property, remember that the homeowner has two hoops to jump through. One, the water damage has to be a covered water loss to the policy. And second, the water loss must be discovered within a reasonable period of time, unless you are on vacation or out of town for some reason. These photographs are of a property where the tenant had a water leak for months (or years) and did not tell the property owner. This mold growth may have taken years to develop. The claim has been initially denied by the insurance company because they decided the property owner did not maintain the property (since he did not know what was happening). Not all insurance companies are the same both in what they cover and how they handle a policy claim; in fact there are HUGE differences. Find a few insurance companies that you like and remember that a homeowner insurance policy is only a one year contract. Feel free to give a referral to someone who does a better job.

I had with an Amish family recently. They said that when they do the laundry in the basement it "rains" in the attic. WOW. I feel this is great conformation that the moisture that is created within the envelope of the home must get through the ridge vent. AND even when the attic ventilation is correct, you can overload the ventilation system by either too many people occupying the home or the creation of too much humidty by lifestyle.

I went to a house with a roof that had a low profile ridge vent (could not get the tips of my fingers between the shingle and the top of the vent). The cut in the roof was wide enough (actually too wide) but there appeared to be a mud stain on the filter fabric. It was not on the underside, but on top of the filter. There was water drip staining and allot of mold growth on the north side of the attic decking but not the south side, which indicated the ventilation was marginal at best. The soffit was 30% perforated, and only half a baffle width (not a full width) between the two foot wide trusses. So the intake was restricted and the ridge vent does not meet normal ventilation exhaust requirements. I think the mud staining is from reverse convection under circumstances where the ridge vent becomes the intake and the soffits an exhaust. So with the air, comes the debris that it carries, then the elevated humidity in the attic makes the dirt wet. The setting is an rural farm so there is allot of dust created in the area of the home. When you do inspections, look at the symptoms you observe and make a hypotheses as to why it is happening. You should develop a skill set to help the homeowner resolve the cause of the moisture issues.

I had a conversation with a person that had some moldy paneling in a basement. They already had a conversation with a company that used ultraviolet light to remove the mold contamination. They asked my opinion on this technique. My response was that anytime I am exposed to a new technique, or a new chemical, I ask for a performance report from a third party or laboratory. I also ask for technical publications that have been presented as national conferences and endured a third party review process. NORMALY, the companies have nothing to give you. Remember that you are accepting an unnecessary liabililty if you use an out-of-the-box technique or chemical in your business without proof it works.
