Is a mold-free certificate required on a home prior to replacing sheetrock?

We are not aware of any current legal requirement for a mold certificate or inspection or clearance for homes that have been flooded. However, you may want to talk to your insurance agent or mortgage lender or realtor to determine what evidence might be acceptable in case another entity (such as a prospective buyer – should you ever sell your home) should ask.

If I have a Commercial License, can I perform home improvement?

Yes, as long as the labor and materials do not exceed $75,000.
