Bowerman Cleaning & Restoration Eager to Be Among First New York Mold Remediation Companies to Comply with New Statewide Regulations

Bowerman Cleaning & Restoration Eager to Be Among First New York Mold Remediation Companies to Comply with New Statewide Regulations

NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — On January 1, 2016, New York will introduce new statewide regulations for the mold remediation industry. 

Bowerman Cleaning & Restoration – an Elmsford-based mold remediation company – is excited to comply with the new regulations and become one of New York’s first certified mold remediation companies under the new law. 

The new “Mold Program” law requires that assessors, contractors, and their workers undergo licensing training through certified education programs. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the law earlier this year. Initially scheduled to go into effect in July 2015, the law will instead go into effect on January 1, 2016. 

The law will be enforced by the Department of Labor as it falls under New York State Labor Law. New York joins California, Indiana, Texas, Florida, Maryland, and New Jersey as one of the few states that have passed laws governing mold and indoor air quality. 

Bowerman Cleaning & Restoration, a family-owned cleaning and restoration business in operation since the 1970s, is looking forward to becoming one of the first companies in New York to be fully licensed under the new law.

“We’ve already started preparing our company to handle these changes,” said company owner Michael Bowerman. “Our employees are currently going through training to ensure they will be licensed and ready to go starting January 1.”

Bowerman added that all company employees involved in mold remediation work were already certified through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning & Restoration Certificate (IICRC). The IICRC is the best-known certification organization for the cleaning and restoration industry and has a presence in 25 countries worldwide. 

Michael Bowerman also expressed several concerns about the new law, including that it could lead to higher insurance premiums for homeowners:

“This new law could significantly raise insurance premiums for New York homeowners. Additionally, homeowners will now have to hire a licensed mold assessor/hygenist to write a remediation plan before and do post clearance verification after the actual job. This could cost upwards of $1000-1500 depending on the size of the job. The extra costs will be felt by building owners, insurance companies, and homeowners.”  

Bowerman also expressed his dissatisfaction over the timing of the law, which gives New York mold remediation companies just a few weeks to train and certify their employees in order to be compliant:
“Ultimately, the lack of detailed information is my main concern. Our company is fully prepared to comply with the new certification systems – we just need to know what those systems are. And, since the details of the law were just recently announced, some mold remediation companies may not be able to undergo training in time – especially since schools just began offering courses in November.”

Bowerman emphasized that despite the perceived shortcomings in the law, Bowerman Cleaning & Restoration would be ready to go starting on January 1, 2016. 

About Bowerman Cleaning & Restoration: Bowerman Cleaning & Restoration is a cleaning and disaster restoration company based in Elmsford, New York. The company offers a variety of cleaning and restoration services including mold remediation throughout Westchester, Bronx, Putnam, Rockland, and Fairfield Counties.

Missouri Roofing Company Is Providing Residents With These Timely Tips…

Missouri Roofing Company Is Providing Residents With These Timely Tips…

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 07, 2015

While March 2015 was a slow start to the Midwest’s storm season, experts are suggesting as a tip that residents stay vigilant as the region moves into April.

For this reason, Gundaker Construction and Restoration Group is advising Chesterfield residents to be careful who they trust with their roof repairs during this famously tumultuous period. While it is important to fix any damage a storm might cause, Gundaker Construction and Restoration Group reminds area homeowners that no one wants to be ripped off by “storm chasers.”

Missouri’s storm season begins in mid-March and lasts until September. Gundaker Construction and Restoration Group says they are gearing up for a potentially active few months after an equally busy winter. They are taking special care to prepare for this season, as the past few years have been especially harsh.

“In April 2012, we had one of the biggest hail storms on record,” said Mike Kossman, Gundaker Construction and Restoration Group’s Managing Partner. “You couldn’t go a day without seeing 10 different state license plates in the area — all storm chasers looking to get quick cash from unsuspecting homeowners.”

Storm season in the Midwest can wreak havoc on homes and properties, and there is usually little that can be done to prevent damage. This usually draws people from around the country who see an opportunity to make money from repair services and scams. These “storm chasers” typically have little knowledge or practical experience when it comes to correcting various types of roof damage, only the sales and marketing skills to encourage homeowners to buy their services.

“We’ve talked to people who have been ripped off,” said Kossman. “We’ve gotten calls from customers who have had their roof replaced in the past year or so who have had leaks the following year. We even had one homeowner who was told they had damage even though we had just replaced their roof two weeks prior.”

While they may claim otherwise, “storm chasers” are often poorly equipped to handle roof repairs. Gundaker Construction and Restoration Group reports that many will cause damage themselves when they climb on a homeowner’s roof, or claim there is damage where none exists. Some may even be committing insurance fraud or other crimes: “storm chasers” have been known to tell customers that their insurance will cover any type of damage after they make the repairs, or state that their repairs are good for 10 years, even though their company has only existed for 6 months. Missouri does have laws in place to protect homeowners from these types of schemes, but if homeowners aren’t aware of what is occurring, the laws become null and void.

“Homeowners also need to be especially careful of some of the companies in their own backyard. These contractors push homeowners to file claims when there is no damage and they say it does not go against their homeowners insurance, which is false,” said Kossman. “We interviewed a Project Manager from another roofing company, and he said he averages getting 2 claims approved of every 8 filed, we are always at 8 or 9 approved out of 10 filed.” If there is not enough damage to warrant a claim, Gundaker Construction and Restoration Group provides the property owner an estimate for repairs.

“There’s a lot of mistrust in our industry and in what people in our industry do,” Kossman said. “We’re trying to change that perception by getting the word out there that people need to take extra care to ensure they aren’t getting swindled.”

As a Missouri roofing company, Gundaker Construction and Restoration Group considers educating their clients about potential repair scams an important responsibility. In contrast to their non-local competitors, Gundaker Construction and Restoration Group’s employees have sales, insurance, roofing and construction experience that add up to 40 years in the business. They also guarantee complete transparency.

“Just having people recognize a fraud means we’ve helped in some way,” said Kossman. “There are a lot of great contractors out there, and as long as they don’t choose someone who is going to rip them off, then that’s a step in the right direction for this industry.”

A person’s home is usually their biggest investment. For this reason, it is crucial to know who is working on it. To make sure your roofing contractor is as experienced as they claim, Gundaker Construction and Restoration Group recommends that homeowners begin by simply asking for a bid. If they can’t produce one, the contractor is likely fraudulent and has no idea what they are doing.

Mold Removal Myths

Mold Removal Myths

BALTIMORE, April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — The average consumer is an individual who is concerned about the safety, knows that mold can cause health problems and a downward slide in the standard of your home health. However, they chose not to go about the proper ways of removing the mold, which is through a registered IICRC firm. What we will be explained to you is that certain techniques that the average homeowner uses to remove the mold can actually do more harm than good. The first idea of the use of bleach and water for mold removal.

Photo – http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20140419/76636

The idea of the use of bleach as being a removal agent is one of the oldest ideas on how to remove mold. In actuality it can do more to make the situation worse rather than make it better. One of the main reasons why it makes it worse is that you are mixing the bleach with water and that in turn makes the area moist, and mold loves the moisture. Also, the content of the bleach does not remove the mold at all just the roots, which means the mold will disappear for a short time but will return. However, you will be thinking well it seems that moisture is the primary cause of the problem spreading then I will just remove the moisture.

If you are trying to dry out the problematic area, it will not work with the regular dehumidifier. Also, removing the moisture from the air does not necessarily solve the problem. It requires the use of special equipment and this is specifically designed to remove the mold as food source from the air. This will allow for the area to be properly be remediated. However, you are most likely still thinking I can remove the mold myself, but still can cause more problems.

One if you are not doing this job properly it can actually spread  through the remainder of the home. Mold can spread rapidly if it is not contained throughout the area, in the proper manner. Also if you do not protect yourself it can result in sickness.  So why would you want to risk endangering yourself, just to save some money. It is not worth the risk to your health, which can cause you to lose a significantly larger portion of your income rather, than any amount that you spend on a remediation firm. However, then why should I bother remediating the issue at all?

You should take care of this issue, because at the end of day it effects too many important parts of your life specifically your loved ones and financial obligations. In order to protect yourself and those that you cherish and pick a certfied firm to do the remediation work. Also, chose one that does not do their own testing, because it might be more expensive, but there will not be a conflict of interest.
