**NEW** NYS MOLD LAW
Regulations Effective January 1, 2016
All professionals involved in mold remediation and mold assessment must
be licensed by NYs Department of Labor
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.
** UPDATE FROM NY STATE **
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.
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
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
a dust wipe lead test by us, an EPA Certified firm.
Parents & Grandparents
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
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
Home Evaluation, including dust wipe analysis, for as little as $200
