This course will focus on the concerns of mold and fungi that grows among various building-related trades and businesses and as well as insurance companies and different levels of governmental agencies. Throughout the years, tremendous awareness, concerns, and interests on mold was generated over time. Mold growth in buildings can lead to a variety of health problems. Various practices can be followed to mitigate mold issues in buildings, the most important of which is to reduce moisture levels that can facilitate mold growth. Removal of affected materials after the source of moisture has been reduced and/or eliminated may be necessary for remediation. You would need to have a proactive mold Operations & Maintenance program (O & M program) that requires property inspections to visually identify mold germination and/or identify water events.
