Got Mold?

Our super wet spring here in the Northeast will undoubtedly bring on more than the usual mold problems as the summer heat and humidity settles in.

Add the weird swings in temperature the last few weeks that keep folks from opening windows or operating ventilation systems and you’ve got a tailor made situation for mold growth.

Contractors and maintenance property managers might want to quickly get up to speed on best practices in mold these days.

New York State has not promulgated mold regulations but has a task force that issued some recommendations earlier this year.

Check our library for that.

NYC DOHMH also has an excellent set of mitigation guidelines. These are used all over the country as defacto work practices, often defined as such in a project specification.

EPA has a similar set of guidelines also featured in our library. We encourage those preparing work plans or specifications to look at both when establishing expectations for contractors or maintenance personnel.

EEA is accredited for mold mitigation worker, mitigation contractor, assessment technician and assessment consultant under Texas Dept of State Health Services. The Texas regulations are great because they offer some structure to the mitigation process. DSHS defines assessments, work plans and even sets standards for clearance.

We encourage our clients to “cherry pick” the best parts of the guidelines and regulations for their circumstances. That way they’ll have some basis for their decisions that’s grounded through the agencies.

Our mold training is designed to provide a practical understanding of how to use the available techniques and tools to get the job done. The Texas accreditation provides agency legitimacy you just can’t find anywhere else.
