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 controlled air 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 culture plates.: You will also master the two of the most thorough and complete mold testing techniques: (a) the spore inhalation protocol-TM; and (b) the geometric diffusion protocol-TM.

        Instructor Phillip Fry will provide you with in-depth online mold training so that you can remediate [remove mold safely from] homes, rental properties, offices, and other properties with the following remediation and removal methods---

  1. Find and locate all points of mold contamination in the home or building with thorough inspection and testing. 
     

  2. Locate and fix all sources 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.
     

  3. 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. 
     

  4. The use of wear personal protective gear while testing and remediating mold, such as:
    Tyvek protective suit with built-in hood and shoe covers; gloves; and one piece, full face protective eye goggles with built-in breathing respirator with cartridge filtration.
     

  5. Kill visible mold and disinfected cleaned areas by spraying it with EPA-recognized Mold Killer.
     

  6. Remove dead, live, and dormant mold. 
     

  7. Remove and discard all mold-contaminated building materials [such as drywall and insulation] in doubled up bags [double bagging]. 
     

  8. 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.
     

  9. Spray onto the cleaned out area your choice of two different anti-microbial coatings that will be explained and compared in detail.
     

  10. Remove mold from all personal property and home furnishings that have been exposed to mold in the home or other real estate property.
     

  11. Replace mold-contaminated hvac equipment, air handlers, and duct work with new ones or remove the mold from inside the existing hvac and prevent future mold problems with a custom-designed ultraviolet light system from Mold Inspector that is installed in both the supply and return side of the hvac equipment and air handlers. 
     

  12. Close in the mold-remediated area with mold-free, new building materials [usually done by a home remodeling company or general contractor rather than by the mold remediation company].
