NYC Class C mold violations

How to Deal With NYC Class B,C, and D mold violations

With the need to establish healthy living conditions being a major concern of New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), there is need for New Yorkers to take mold violation seriously. This is because mold has far-reaching catastrophic repercussions to the health individual, and hence there is need for landlords to remediate this problem wherever it occurs.
Unfortunately, there are no specific legal procedures for handling mold violation cases. According to the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), class C mold is considered to be a violation of the New York City Housing Maintenance code, but under the provisions of the code, it is stipulated that houses should be kept in good conditions without explicit mention of the mold violations. 

While the Alternative Enforcement Program is of great help, more can be done. Under this program, Once HPD identifies a set of dwellings under the under class B or class C hazardous violation of the Housing Maintenance code, then the AEP is applied on the landlords of these dwellings. It is important to note that participation in this program is not by choice. However, the landlords in question can still be discharged from the EAP within the first four months if they completely correct class C violations related to mold within this period among other conditions. 

In a nutshell, class C mold violations entail an immediately hazardous problem that needs to be addressed urgently and stringently. For this reason, the relevant authorities should come up with long-term solutions of this problem as soon as possible. Incorporating the DOHMH mold assessment and remediation guidelines into the New York City Housing Maintenance code could be of great help. Stern action should also be taken against landlords who willingly ignore a call to remediate the mold violation in their premises.

How to hire a mold removal company

 Tips on hiring mold removal companies

Its no secret that almost every home gets mold. Mold is unpleasant and sometimes hazardous to the health of the home occupants especially if they inhale its spores. Once there is mold in a home, it is always advisable to get rid of it as soon as possible so as to avoid its spores. Removing it might be a challenging endeavor especially for a person who has never done it before. Thankfully, there are many mold removal companies that can offer great assistance. Most of these companies can be found by looking up for them online or in the local directory listings.

Certified Mold Removal Companies?

Though one might be interested in having the services of mold removal companies, identifying the best ones also might become a challenge. This is especially so when one does not know what to look for in those companies so as to decide on the ones that he or she can choose from. Firstly, it is imperative for one to look out for those companies that have been in existence for a long time. This is because such companies have very experienced staff members who can remove the mold with great ease and expertise. Such companies also have the experience of handling their clients unlike newly formed ones that are perhaps there to 'taste' the business waters before they either decide to exit or continue.

Another thing that can help in identifying good mold removal companies is the fee they charge for their services. This is particularly important because some companies charge their clients more than what is recommended. It is not a good idea to contract the companies that exploit their clients financially. Lastly but not least is the companies' reputation. A good name means a lot. Considering mold removal companies that are highly respected might be a good idea unlike those that clients keep complaining about, have loads of bad reviews from real clients, are not BBB rated, bonded, licensed, certified, and  no insurance.

The choice is yours...
