    Unhappy DESPERATE IN CANADA

    HELLO folks, This is my first post on this forum, hope someone can help.
    I just purchased the IAC2 Mould inspection report software but have found that I cannot print off a check list to take to the inspection fill out and bring back to the office to complete , the same way that I do my regular home inspections.
    Does anyone know of or have a check list that I could use for mould inspections. I don't want to purchase another program I just purchased IAC2 can' afford to by another one.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    THANKS.

    Fred,

    Glad you made it over here.

    I'd contact PV and NACHI if I bought a product that does not perform as advertised or as you require.

    I don't do mold and wouldn't recommend sampling.
    I like to sleep and wake up with a clear conscious.
    Money would be better spent locating the moisture/water source and stopping that then making the necessary repairs.

    Read EPA Investigating, Evaluating, and Remediating Moisture and Mold Problems | Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings | Mold | Indoor Air Quality | Air | US EPA

    and contact this gentlemen for further reporting information.

    Fred, …. If I were you I would contact IAC2 and ask how one prints a Check List for field use. They should be able to help you, but if not, …. Here’s an idea that may or may not work. I would open the IAC2 software Check List, copy and paste it over to a Word document. It might need some touching up here and there, but once you fine tune it onto a Word document, save it !!

    By the way, and off topic here, why does someone have to be a member of NACHI in order to register with IAC2 ? Even though I’m with NACHI, it seems they have their 2-cents in everything ?? So, if you’re with another respected HI Association, you can’t join (register) ? Sound like BS to me ……

    And as with Barry, I don't do mold sampling either. Seems at some point in time, one is bound to end up in court in long drawn out litigation trying to cover their arse. I recognize (most) mold, and will refer it to a specialist for further evaluation and repairs.

    Thumbs up Re: DESPERATE IN CANADA

    Thanks guys for your responses.
    I have been in touch IAC2 and INSPECTVUE regarding the mould checklist and they are looking into it. As far as mould inspections and sampling are concerned , the sampling part is the last stage in the process and many other things can be done without doing actual sampling.
    Thanks again for your quick replies.

    Not sure what your real issue is. I don't know anything about IAC2, but then I don't have anything to do with NACHI and it appears it's part of them.

    I do use Inspectvue and you can customize the report any way you want it. You may want to check with Lorne and see if he can help.

    I also keep as far away from mold inspections as I can. To each thier own.
