We are looking for certified and experienced Mold Testers / Inspectors
Mold Testers / Inspectors will conduct a mold test on a home or other structure.
The first thing they will do is research the structure’s history to discover if there has ever been a flooding problem on the property. All information regarding past water leaks, flooding or other types of moisture issues on the property will provide insight as to what type of mold problems there may be on the property.
Following the research will be a visual inspection of the outside and inside of the property. The inspector will be looking for signs or conditions that may encourage mold growth, such as damp leaf piles, broken down-spouts, leaking roofs or rotting windowsills.
Should Investigate any signs of past or present water intrusion, which can promote mold growth, and will take samples of any suspected mold for laboratory analysis. A minimum of 2 Air samples will be taken, one inside and one outside of the home. All samples taken will be sent off to the lab to be tested.
The Maryland Mold Remediation Services Act
In 2008, the Maryland General Assembly passed the Maryland Mold Remediation Services Act. This law requires that any company or firm that provides mold remediation services on residential property in Maryland obtain a license to provide mold remediation services. In addition the law requires that each employee who provides mold remediation services be certified by an accreditation body as a microbial remediation technician or supervisor, whichever is applicable.
This license is to be issued by the Maryland Home Improvement Commission (MHIC), an agency within the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation (DLLR). The license to provide mold remediation services is different from the MHIC license for a contractor, subcontractor, or salesperson.
This law was scheduled to take effect on July 1, 2013.However, due to budget constraints, the DLLR has postponed the implementation of the law indefinitely.Therefore, until the Mold Remediation Services Act is implemented, a mold remediation contractor who only performs "cleaning" type services (such as cleaning ventilation systems or applying chemicals to kill mold), would not be required to hold a MHIC license.
Any mold remediation contractor who performs structural renovations to a house in the course of a mold remediation project (for example, tearing out and rebuilding walls, repairing drywall, replacing floors, etc.) is required to hold a MHIC contractor license.
Once the law is implemented, any contractor that currently holds a MHIC contractor or subcontractor license and who also provides mold remediation services on residential properties will be required to hold both the contractor and subcontractor license and the license to provide mold remediation services.
