Insurance alone makes a deal breaker. f- that................I could have grandfathered but did not want to share a min of a 1/4 of the revenue with the ins guy. Yes it is only my guesstimate

From Florida Mold - InterNACHI Inspection Forum Florida Mold

Just remember:
468.8421 Insurance.—
(1) A mold assessor shall maintain general liability and errors and omissions for both preliminary and post remediation mold assessment insurance coverage of at least $1 million.

In case the state ever get it's head out of it's butt and does an audit.

after 8 years our insurance has dropped from about $9,000 to about $5,500, but we have to carry $2 million for many of our clients

Remember guys you should only be doing any kind of mold inspection or sampling if you are a mold assessor. Also even if you are you have a requirement not to waste the clients money. Meaning you need the proper test and run it for the proper time as well as it is your responsibility to write the remediation protocols. These are only a few things you are responsible for.

I thought NACHI members are exempt from the requirement to be a mold assessor when performing mold inspections in conjunction with a home inspection.

I think any home inspector in Florida can conduct mold sampling... as long as it is in conjunction with a home inspection.
You cannot do it as a stand alone service call without an assessor's license.

I have to say the insurance industry may be doing a better job of protecting the consumer than those that profess to help, when all they want is the money.

"half a#### mold inspection is just that, a half a#### mold inspection"
Mold inspection report should identify the source, extent and location of mold also include nationally industry accepted protocols.

What would be the difference? It depends what you want your liability to be. Technically you could try to build a house with a home inspector license as well. Just make sure you have the correct insurance and comply with the GC guidelines.

If I read ya right, the difference is you can't advertise/offer mold stuff w/o the license.
As I stated - You cannot do it as a stand alone service call without an assessor's license.

So are you saying I can get a permit to build someone a house by complying with guidelines?
