There have been a number of questions regarding the Clean Home Certificate that we recently discussed. Depending on the certification that the mold professional has, the certificate or report can be called different names. NORMI.org is a fantastic resource. NORMI (National Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspectors) is an organization that trains and certifies mold inspectors. This is not fake or a scam, it is what is recommended by professional experts. You can get a pre-remediation report which tells you the proper steps needed to remediate your home and/or a post remediation report which will tell you if your home is clear to close walls. There is a cost for these inspections, however, this is the only guaranteed way to know your home is ready for closing. I do not understand why a contractor would be opposed to this inspection. As a homeowner, you should want to know that your home has been remediated properly. We do not promote any particular company, but suggest that you research mold inspectors on lslbc.louisiana.gov or search for licensed mold inspectors in your area with the proper due diligence. I hope this helps clear any further questions you may have!
