thinking past mold
I get calls from occupants all the time about dampness and mold growth. Many times the occupants have contacted code enforcement officials who respond by "we don't inspect for mold". I see this an issue from both sides.
1. how do we get occupants to think past mold to understand the reason is mold growth is present is that materials and contents have been persistently damp and if the problems are beyond the tenant's control frame the problems as maintenance and repairs
2. how top we get code officials to think past mold and when they recieve these complaints ask a few questions to assess the potential for a code violation to be present
