About the Program:


Occupants often report health effects in water damaged building, even when there is no mold visible. Visible assessments & typical airborne mold measurements may miss hidden mold growth inside walls. In this workshop we will briefly review the basics of moisture and mold growth, and present practical investigative strategies that combine the results of visual observations, (including the NIOSH Mold & Dampness Visual Assessment Tool), when and when not to conduct laboratory sampling; semi-aggressive mold sampling techniques, and various moisture diagnostic techniques. Facility managers, public health officials, and health and safety personnel should benefit from participation.
