Amy Siedleck, of The Mold Reporters, joins us for the DYOJO Podcast to share her experiences over the years with how property restoration contractors can provide greater value to clients.
As it relates to insurance claims for property damage, we have transitioned from “mold is gold” to microbial remediation being excluded or capped by most policies. (My mentor and I discuss this in greater detail in Episode 15)
Amy has been working as an indoor environmental consultant for over 20 years and has seen her share of contrasts in the quality of mold remediation services that restoration contractors provide to clients in her market. Her company, The Mold Reporters is based in Portland, Oregon where the local hipsters boast of “keeping it weird” while under the surface the structures are dealing with the unique prevalence of moisture throughout homes and businesses.
Recommendations for contractors to elevate their remediation services from Amy Siedlekci:
Amy says multiple times throughout our discussion that contractors need to do what they say they are going to do and to perform the job correctly the first time. She mentions this so many times that you can see she clearly has experience working with clients affected by poor workmanship and shares that she has been called in for litigation against contractors as well (Ed Cross "The Restoration Lawyer" discusses this topic Episode 3).
