Kevin Miller replied to Bob Krell's discussion What Do You Do When You Find Suspected Mold? in the group Healthy Indoors (IAQ)
"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…"

Kevin Miller replied to Bob Krell's discussion What Do You Do When You Find Suspected Mold? in the group Healthy Indoors (IAQ)
"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'…"

Kevin Miller replied to Bob Krell's discussion What Do You Do When You Find Suspected Mold? in the group Healthy Indoors (IAQ)
"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…"

Kevin Miller replied to David Butler's discussion How would you insulate this roof?
"Good question.  I don't know the answer.   I'd love to know whether there is a reflective roofing paint that is safe for potable water.   Sounds like I need to do some research! "

Kevin Miller replied to David Butler's discussion How would you insulate this roof?
"I'd recommend a reflective roof.   Depending on their expected usage of this building, a reflective elastomeric roof paint such as "Kool Seal" might be sufficient without adding another roof surface or insulation. …"

Kevin Miller replied to Bob Krell's discussion What Do You Do When You Find Suspected Mold? in the group Healthy Indoors (IAQ)
"Good thought, though if you're a subcontractor it probably would be wise to go to the builder first.  Looks like a multi-family unit so there may be no 'homeowner' yet.  "

Kevin Miller replied to John Shillito's discussion Moisture/Mold on rim joist in the group Best Practices (Residential)
"I can't tell from the photos whether you have mold, but if you suspect mold do yourself a favor and don't simply scrape it off.  Removing mold from the moisture/food source will cause it to die, but dead mold spores are still a severe…"

Kevin Miller replied to Bob Krell's discussion What Do You Do When You Find Suspected Mold? in the group Healthy Indoors (IAQ)
"Good question Richard.    Since the mold industry is not federally regulated, the emphasis in unregulated cities and states has been on acceptable industry standards of care.  That industry SOC is drawn somewhat vaguely from various…"

Kevin Miller replied to Bob Krell's discussion What Do You Do When You Find Suspected Mold? in the group Healthy Indoors (IAQ)
"Hire an expert in mold-remediation or and environmental consultant and follow their advice. Proper protocol should involve something along the lines of: 1) Mold sampling to verify types of mold present. 2) Protection of employees working on site. 3)…"
