Choosing the Right Certified Mold ContractorWhen mold colonies and spores are found in the home or office, finding the right mold contractor is essential to making sure mold is removed safely.
The mold removal industry is overseen by many governing bodies. The first is the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA has set federal standards and regulations on proper mold removal and remediation. These standards are simple and general, yet effective. Reputable mold contractors should always adhere to the EPAâ€™s guidelines during mold removal projects.
Another major governing body that sets regulations for mold contractors is the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). The IICRC is a non-profit group that was formed in 1972. Originally known as the IICUC, the group standardized and governed regulations for the carpet cleaning and upholstery industry. Once their values were recognized and adopted on a national scale, the company produced guidelines for all restoration services. Now an internationally recognized governing body, the IICRCâ€™s S520 Guidelines for Mold Removal are an industry standard and should be followed during any mold removal project.
The IICRC trains and certifies technicians all over the world to ensure safe and healthy mold restoration projects. With over 53,000 certified technicians throughout the world, finding a certified mold contractor should be easy. The IICRC currently offers six certification tracks, offering mold contractors state of the art knowledge and technology for safe mold removal.
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is a governing body for all types of business, not just mold contractors. BBBâ€™s philosophy is creating â€œan ethical marketplace where buyers and sellers can trust each other.â€ Being a BBB accredited business is an honor and responsibility that should not be taken lightly. Businesses work hard to earn a BBB rating of A or A+, proving that they put the customer first in all of their practices.
