"That's nice Kevin. However, it doesn't answer the question I've posed to you and to dozens of other mold 'experts'. How do the air sampling test results guide the remediation process?  If you can't answer that…"

"The ACGIH, RIA, EPA, IICRC and NYC DOH all recommend post remediation sampling for large mold projects.   It is the recognized standard of care in the industry and any contractors who choose to ignore it increase their potential…"

"No, but you can have moisture without mold, and many times the remediation of the mold is distinct from the source of the moisture (i.e. mold on ceiling caused by failed flashing). I'll spare you any more 'mumbo jumbo baloney'…"

Daniel Cullen replied to Bob Krell's discussion What Do You Do When You Find Suspected Mold? in the group Healthy Indoors (IAQ)
"How can the 'moisture issue' be separate from the mold and/or mold testing issue? You can't have mold without moisture correct? How does mold testing help determine which rooms are targeted when air flows freely and somewhat…"

"Visual inspection can only confirm the presence of mold, not the absence.   That said, you are correct that a visual inspection should be the first step.   If you can confirm the presence of mold visually, you may eliminate the…"

Kevin Miller replied to Bob Krell's discussion What Do You Do When You Find Suspected Mold? in the group Healthy Indoors (IAQ)
"Sampling would be primarily to verify 'Condition 1' or 'Normal Fungal Ecology' after remediation.   If mold has been confirmed visually, remediation could commence with testing only occurring afterwards to confirm that…"

"Can anyone tell me exactly HOW mold sampling impacts the mold remediation process or protocol? Why do you need to know mold types, mold spore counts or anything else when you see a mold/moisture problem? How will the results of a mold test impact…"

"Most of the moisture issues there can be attributed to failure to get the roof system completely sealed in a timely fashion during construction. "

"You are correct about it being multi-family.  It is, in fact, an assisted-living facility, so it will contain a potentially susceptible population.  I have seen similar issues in many of these types of properties over the years."

Al Tibbs replied to Bob Krell's discussion What Do You Do When You Find Suspected Mold? in the group Healthy Indoors (IAQ)
"In any case where there is visible mold present, I would begin with a thorough VISUAL assessment of the building. I would then make decisions based on the findings of the visual investigation. In most cases, sampling is not necessary to remediate…"
