Beacon of Hope Resource Center will be adding do it your self instruction on various subjects related to the recovery on this page. Please check what we currently have below:
DON’T FALL VICTIM TO FEAR MONGERING BY MOLD REMEDIATION COMPANIES!
The State of Louisiana only requires that you disclose that your home has been flooded and what you did to remediate mold, if anything. Inspections are the obligation of the purchaser. See here for more details, http://legis.la.gov/Legis/Law.aspx?d=181357
You are not required to have a Mold Inspection Certificate to sell your home. Many mold remediation companies are fear mongering about this issue and charging outrageous fees for this service. Below are instructions on how to remediate mold if you choose to do it yourself which is far less expensive. Many non-profits, experienced in mold remediation are providing this service at no charge.
