Page 42 of Feb 2010 JLC - in the article - “Why You Shouldn’t Exhaust the Bath Fan in the Attic”…a plumber discovers mold in the attic and refuses to continue his work.
Insurance company has the owner call a certified forensic hygeneist who identifies the mold as Stachybotrys chartarum and the hygeneist recommends remediation that, in all, will cost the home owner $20,000.
The homeowner contacts a builder.
The builder investigates and finds the mold limited to the area at the end of the bathroom fan exhaust duct laying on the floor of the attic and recommends that it be cleaned up with soap and water.
The story has the happy ending with the builder saving the owner $20,000 and the “certifiable” hygeneist standing by his report.
