Professional Mold Remediation Standards
The leading authority on professional mold remediation standards in the inspection, cleaning and restoration industry is the IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, & Restoration Certification). As the major standard setting and certifying authority, the IICRC compiled and released a Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation in 2008.
As consumer awareness of mold contamination has dramatically increased in recent years, the IICRC teamed up with a group of industry and health experts, industrial hygienists, microbiologists and other public and governmental entities to create a comprehensive guide for professionals dealing with mold. In addition to drawing from the extensive experience of these experts, relevant literature was also reviewed in developing the professional mold remediation standards. This included publications by the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.
The Guide is intended to serve as reference material to be consulted and used as an in-depth and comprehensive field guide for technicians.
The 56-page Guide discusses topics that include:
• The principles of mold remediation
• Necessary equipment, tools and materials
• Safety and health
• Remediation of Structural, HVAC and contents
The Guide foregoes the commonly applied principle of simply evaluating the amount of visible mold growth inside a home or facility to choose which corrective response is the most appropriate. Instead, the IICRC established that there are three conditions to consider in determining the scope of the mold presence and the remediation possible solutions. These conditions not only take into account visible mold, but also the common types and normal amounts of mold present in any given building, the possible contamination spread from mold spores, and the presence of actual mold growth.
It is imperative for the proper and complete removal of mold from your property that a trained and educated company be chosen to deal with any mold issue. The owner and technicians at Five Star Carpet Cleaning & Restoration have been educated and trained in these standards and apply them in all of their mold remediation and restoration jobs.
