This is a consensus document developed and agreed upon by industry professionals from all over the world.

The people involved in the development of the S range from PhD holders through to Restoration Professionals who actually do the work of s50 removal. The S and R are written for use by those involved in the mould remediation industry, and is the result of collaboration among microbiologists and other scientists, public health professionals, s5220 hygienists, remediation contractors, restoration service companies, cleaning and restoration training schools, trade associations that service the professional restoration industry, allied trade- persons and others with related professional and practical experience.

The procedural standard is supported by the reference guide.

The intent is to use the principles outlined in the reference guide as a tool to better understand and apply the standard itself. However, the reference guide is not considered part of this standard.


The purpose of cleanup is to eliminate mold and remove contaminated materials. Killing mold with a biocide is insufficient, since chemicals and proteins causing reactions in humans remain in dead mold.

The following methods are used. Before remediation, the e520 is assessed to ensure safety, clean up the entire moldy area, and properly approach the s52. The EPA provides the following instructions: Should be done by a trained professional.

Includes a half- or full- face respirator mask. Goggles with a half- face respirator mask prevent mold spores from reaching the mucous membranes of the eyes. Disposable hazmat coveralls are available to keep out particles down to one micrometer, and protective suits keep mold spores from entering skin cuts.

Gloves are made of rubber, nitrile, polyurethane, or neoprene. Dry brushing or agitation device: Wire brushing or sanding is used when microbial growth can be seen on solid wood surfaces such as framing or underlayment the subfloor.

Removes mold from wood and cement; however, this process may spray mold and its byproducts into surrounding air. Wet vacuuming is used on wet materials, and this method is one of those approved by the EPA.


icirc Removal of mold from non- porous surfaces by wiping or scrubbing with water and a detergent and drying quickly. HEPA high- efficiency particulate air vacuum: Used in remediation areas after materials have been dried and contaminated materials removed; collected debris and dust is stored to prevent debris release.

Sealed in the remediation area, debris is usually discarded with ordinary construction waste. Equipment used in mold remediation includes: Camera at the end of a flexible snake, illuminating potential mold problems inside walls, ceilings and crawl spaces; digital camera: Documents findings during s50 personal protective equipment PPE: Respirators, gloves, impervious suit, and eye protection; thermographic camera: Infrared thermal- imaging cameras identify secondary moisture sources.
