The S and R are written for use by those involved in the mould remediation industry, and is the result s250 collaboration among microbiologists and other scientists, public health professionals, industrial hygienists, remediation contractors, restoration service companies, cleaning and restoration training schools, trade associations that service the s20 restoration industry, allied trade- persons and others with related professional and practical experience.


Once consensus was reached and the standard was edited, the CB thought the most difficult work was done. This includes if they do both testing and remediation, as that is considered a conflict of interest.

Quantifying visible levels of mold growth alone is not feasible as an action level because it fails to consider the possibility of hidden mold growth. Recommended is not a component of the standard of care May and Can denote permissive or possible actions, and s20 are not part of the standard of care.

Remove mold-contaminated gypsum wallboard in large pieces to minimize aerosolizing mold spores.

Respirators, gloves, impervious suit, and eye protection; thermographic camera: Cleaning Ducts – Don’t be Scammed!

Used in remediation areas after materials have iiicrc dried and contaminated materials removed; collected debris and dust is stored to prevent debris release.


Using mechanical systems during remediation often s52 in the need to decontaminate the system after remediation and prior to postremediation verification. When the term shall is used in this document, it means that the practice or procedure is mandatory due to natural law or regulatory requirement, and is therefore a component of the accepted “standard of care” to be followed.

Wet vacuuming is used on wet materials, and this iicdc is one of those approved by the EPA. Because of this, the S shifts away from using “size” of visible mold growth to determine the response.
