Correction: DriRite of Central holds valid license to perform mold remediation

DriRite of Central Florida possesses an active license to perform mold remediation. Because of incorrect information supplied to the Herald, the status of the company’s license was incorrect in a story Saturday. When approached by Manatee County building officials on Aug. 23 inside the Willowbrook town home community in East Manatee, DriRite employees did not provide a license and were asked to cease work, according to John Barnott, county director of building and development services. Earlier this week, DriRite provided the county with a copy and is providing services in Manatee County. DriRite of Central Florida has been in compliance with state mold remediation code since it was implemented by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, according to DriRite of Central Florida ownership.
