IICRC Has New Draft for Mold Remediation

Vancouver, WA, July 8, 2013 -- The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification said that it is revising the IICRC S520-2008 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation.

The draft S520 Standard is available now for public review and comment.

IICRC S520 is a procedural standard and reference guide for the remediation of mold damaged structures and contents.

It is based on remediation and restoration principles, research and practical experience, and attempts to combine essential academic principles with practical elements of water damage restoration for technicians facing “real-life” mold remediation challenges.

The S520 is written for the mold remediation industry, and is the result of collaboration among microbiologists and other scientists, public health professionals, industrial hygienists, remediation contractors, restoration service companies, cleaning and restoration training schools, trade associations that service the professional restoration industry, allied trade-persons, and others with related professional and practical experience.

The draft standard is available for review through August 19.
