With all the rain that has fallen in the northeast recently, mold has again become a serious consideration for residential and commercial properties. We at Aspen Environmental Services would like to provide this helpful recommendation by Dr. Oz in order to protect the public from not only toxic mold, but also scammers who SAY that can remedy the problem.
Dr. Oz Recommends Certification/Licensing
for Mold Professionals
Dr. Oz completed a great segment on 02/27 dealing with toxic mold and the dangers the public may face when being scammed by unlicensed, untrained mold guys. NORMI and the IICRC were upheld as “the good guys”, credible, national training/certification organizations that help clients with assessing and cleaning up mold problems in indoor environments.
NORMI, the National Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspectors was founded July 4, 2004 to train and certify mold remediators under the State of Louisiana Mold Licensing Law. Since then, NORMI has trained thousands of assessors, remediators and IAQ professionals throughout the United States and Canada. Its certifications have been recognized by states that require training for licensure including, but not limited to, New York, Florida, Louisiana and the District of Columbia.
The mold profession has long been plagued with scammers, non-professionals who claim they can detect mold and clean it up. Many of these do NO testing, are not trained building assessors and do not know that bleach WILL NOT clean mold. Dr. Oz addresses each of these subjects in his well-written segment, which include Mike Holmes, a builder, and television personality who touted the importance of finding good guys like NORMI and the IICRC.
Beware! Hire a licensed and certified professional.
