Client alleges Moldbusters Inspection & Remediation failed to adequately perform work, took property


By Carrie Bradon | Jul 5, 2019

CHARLESTON – The owner of a Dry Branch home alleges she incurred more than $20,000 in damages because of a South Charleston company's failure to adequately perform home improvement projects.

Deborah O'Meara filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Moldbusters Inspection & Remediation, in care of Chad Luce, citing the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act and other counts.

The suit states that the defendant was contracted by the plaintiff to perform interior and exterior mold remediation and other home improvement projects. The suit states the defendant sent the plaintiff a text message on June 12, 2017, with a proposal for work to be completed on the plaintiff's home for a total cost of $12,720, but the text did not include any terms or an estimated completion time. 

The plaintiff alleges she accepted the proposal, but the defendant provided invoices for projects not included in the initial proposal. She alleges upon inspection, the defendant's work was inadequate and caused damage to her home and possessions. She also alleges the defendant took some of her personal property.

The suit states the plaintiff had to hire another company to assist with remedying the damages left by the defendant. 

The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiff is represented by Troy N. Giatras of The Giatras Law Firm PLLC in Charleston.

The case has been assigned to Judge Charles King.
