Mold Testing and Remediation – The problems with mold sampling and remediation. Helping your clients get the best information to overcome mold illness.
with Cathy Cooke, BCHN®
Mold illness is a devastating condition impacting more people than ever. Sadly, the industry standards for mold investigation, testing, and remediation do not work. Inadequate testing and remediation can actually make the problem worse, leaving the occupants with more health problems. This can set their progress back many years, even decades, thinking they’ve solved the mold problem, when they have not. In this presentation I will guide you through all aspects of mold sampling and investigation, explaining how to sample for the best results, why air samples don’t work, the problems with ERMI’s, and why most mold inspectors miss significant issues. I will also discuss why chemicals, even essential oils, are not a good idea for addressing mold; what a proper mold investigation looks like; and how to make sure a mold remediation was done properly.
