Techniques for Inspecting and Testing for Mold
Fry will provide you with
in-depth E.H.A. classroom and online mold training so that you can

with the following testing methods---
Careful and thorough physical
inspection of the entire building and its environment including, but not
limited to, checking for roof leaks, plumbing leaks, and water intrusions
into basements and crawl spaces; inspecting hvac [heating, ventilating,
and air condition] equipment and ducts;
inspecting crawl spaces, attics, and INSIDE wall, ceiling, and floor
cavities using a special fiber optics
video inspection system [to look for molds growing inside walls, ceilings, and floors]; checking with a hidden moisture meter for concealed moisture
or water problems inside walls, ceilings, and floors; and checking the
humidity of each room and inside wall, ceiling, and floor cavities.
Testing visible molds
mold scrapings, bulk physical sampling clear
1" wide Scotch tape lift samples and swabs of the visible mold.
Testing indoor air in
various rooms and locations [such as attics and crawl spaces] for elevated
levels of airborne mold spores and dangerous mold spores by using
testing, an automated bioaerosol impactor sampler with programmable timer
to collect airborne mold spores onto mold culture plates, and the settling of airborne mold spores onto mold
You will also master the two of
most thorough and complete mold testing techniques: (a) the spore inhalation protocol-TM; and (b) the geometric diffusion
Carpet mold testing [using carpet samplers] to test mold spores that have settled
onto carpet, or are growing in carpeting.
Taking an outdoor air test as a control reference point.
Completing your tests in
compliance with safety and legal requirements in regard to the possible
presence of asbestos fibers for homes and buildings built prior to Jan. 1,
1985, and the possible presence of lead paint for homes and buildings built
prior to 1978.
The health problems that
arise from mold contamination, and the health symptoms that result from
exposure to mold contamination.

of mold-causing water intrusion such as flooded areas, recurring flood
causes and sources, other flooding problems water leaks, broken water
pipes, leaky roofs or exterior walls, defective air conditioning condensations lines, and excessive humidity.
Contain the moldy work area
[and thus contain the mold spores that will be released into the air by
opening up mold-contaminated areas] using wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling,
6 mill plastic sheeting as containment walls, industrial hepa filters,
negative air pressure including exhausting mold-laden air into the
outdoors, and large dehumidifiers.
The use of wear personal
protective gear while testing and remediating mold, such as:
protective suit with built-in hood and shoe covers; gloves; and one piece, full
face protective eye goggles with built-in breathing respirator with
Kill visible mold and disinfected cleaned areas by spraying it with
EPA-recognized Mold Killer.
Remove dead, live, and dormant mold.

insulation] in doubled up bags [double bagging].
Clean out the
mold-afflicted area, including power planing, abrasive blasting, and power sanding of all wood beams
and other timbers
to remove all mold deposits---or replace unsalvageable timbers with new, mold-free timbers.
