Contractors/Property Mgrs/ Landlords who violate the RRP regulations may face fines in excess of $32K per violation per day.

 Regulations Effective January 1, 2016
All professionals involved in mold remediation and mold assessment must be licensed by NYs Department of Labor 
To view the bill....click here 
Mold assessment plans are required PRIOR to mold rediation taking place. After the mold assessment has been done,
you may choose any licensed mold remediator to perform the work, according the mold assessor plan.
 Mold Remediation Work Standards 
*Can a licensed mold remediator perform work on a project for a client without an assessment from a licensed mold assessor?

No.  Labor Law Article 32 Section 946 (1) provides that a licensed mold remediator cannot perform work on a project without an assessment performed by a licensed assessor.
 Before beginning site preparation work, the law requires that a licensed remediator:
Obtain a copy of the licensed mold assesssor's mold remediation plan from the client;
prepare a mold remediation work plan ("work plan") that fulfills all of the requirments of the licensed assessor's mold remdiation plan; and
provide a copy of the newly prepared "work plan" to the client.

*Can a licensed mold remediator also perform the assessment on the same project?
 No.  Labor Law Section 936 (2), states that no licensee shall perform both mold assessment and mold remediation on the same project.  If the licensed mold remediator on a project engages in assessment conduct that would otherwise be performed by a licensed mold assessor on that project, the licensed mold remediator has violated Section 936 of the Labor Law.  This inlcudes the practice of providing the client with "fill-in-the-blank" assessment form.
*Can a licenensed mold remediator perform work on a project without an assessment if the owner of the home or property provides a waiver? 
No.  The Labor Law does not allow a licensed mold remediator to perform work on a project without an assessment from a licensed mold assessor.  In addition, Labor Law Section 936 prohibits a licensee from performing both the mold assessment and the mold remediation on the same project.

Remodeling an older home?

If you are remodeling a structure built prior to 1978, you may want to consider a 3rd Party lead dust wipe clearance examination after the work is completed. Or better yet, have the paint XRF tested professionally prior to beginning work. This is an EPA lead testing procedure which can help verify the interior was cleaned up properly, and there is no trace of residual lead based paint dust.  This is particularly important if there are children in the home are 6 yrs old or younger, or if a child has an elevated blood lead level, or if anyone is pregnant. Lead is a neurotoxin to young children, and is proven to cause permanent brain damage.  

Be sure to discuss lead based paint testing /concerns with your contractor PRIOR to  signing the contract, and possibly withholding some of the final payment until the home has achieved a 3rd party lead clearance exam
through a dust wipe lead test by us, an EPA Certified firm.


   Parents & Grandparents

When your children or grandchildren come to your home, are you sure is it lead safe? Lead dust from 40-50-60 years of remodeling can remain in the home, and is virtually invisible to the naked eye.  
Have you looked for deteriorated paint? Or possibly, if there is lead dust residue in the house from previous work performed over the many years? 
A simple lead test / dust wipe testing, xrf testing or risk assessment can help you find out. The samples are sent to a laboratory for analysis.

Basement walls, posts, attics, windows, radiators, closets, old play sets in the yard, garages, old clothes poles, or an old fence can all be sources of lead paint poisoning.

Interstate Property Inspections Inc can provide you with a  Lead Hazard Home Evaluation, including dust wipe analysis, for as little as $200

There is no "safe" radon level

EPA's recommendations to homeowners:

  • If your radon level is 4 pCi/L or higher, fix your home.
  • If your radon level is 2 pCi/L or higher, consider fixing your home.

Odorless and invisible, Radon gas permeates through concrete floors and basement walls,

and is the #2 cause of lung cancer ....behind cigarette smoking.
