Summary of EPA and NYC Mold Remediation Guidelines Mobile App
The goal of remediation is to remove or clean contaminated materials in a way that prevents fungi and dust contaminated with fungi from leaving the work area, while protecting the health of workers performing the abatement.
How does it work?
A more cautious remediation plan is recommended where a particularly toxic mold species is suspected, when extensive hidden mold is expected (behind vinyl wallpaper or in a HVAC system), when the chances of the mold becoming airborne are high, or if sensitive individuals, such as those with severe allergies or asthma are present. The Summary of EPA and NYC Mold Remediation Guidelines mobile app details the precautions to be Small Isolated Areas, Medium Sized Isolated Areas, Large Areas/Extensive Contamination and Remediation of HVAC Systems.
