See the full video at https://youtu.be/KTTrF-VZ2G8  When working with rescue services (loss reduction), restoration, construction or containment of mold, the providers of such services should understand that the industries they run are in a company to secure life and property and protect human health.
When mold is detected during the evaluation or drying process, steps must be taken to protect the health of workers and passengers within the structure, as well as to preserve the structure from further damage.
There are no federal or state regulations for industries with mitigation, restoration or mold remediation. Restoration providers who want to maintain a professional organization that the public can trust should set up an internal training and certification program for all their employees. When retaining the services of a restaurant vendor, make inquiries to confirm that it is continuously training its employees.
Restoration suppliers shall be able to show customers that they have developed an internal training program for the use, storage, maintenance and safety practices of all company-owned or leased equipment and all test procedures and deliveries ( ie . Chemicals), as well as their quality control and safety programs (QC&A).
Restoration providers should have their techniques. and executives trained and certified under the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) safety and health programs and certified with the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act when required by law.
Project managers, fire / water managers and the company's QC & A manager should receive Certified Restorer (CR) certification and Water Loss Specialists (WLS) certification.
Whether one estimates, evaluates or dries losses involving water, the emediator needs a complete understanding of how structures are built. It is important to understand the air flow in structures, what water intrusion can do to a structure and its components and how water flow and moisture work in the structure.
In some states, the decontamination provider may not be able to obtain payment for the services provided if they are not properly licensed. In Louisiana, for example, Tradewinds Environmental Restoration entered into a contract to provide unlicensed mold remediation services. This measure was specifically prohibited by laws aimed at protecting the public interest and the contract was therefore declared completely invalid. Tradewinds was only allowed to reclaim its "actual costs of materials, services and labor" but was "not entitled to profits and overheads". Although this is a hard result, the purpose of the licensing statutes is to protect the public. In some states, the unlicensed contractor may not even collect for the reasonable value of the services.
