Use of negative-air containment systems, personal protective equipment (PPE) such as respirators, and some other work practices for mold remediation (e.g., use of HEPA-filtered vacuums and three-stage contamination systems) are similar to those used in the asbestos abatement industry. However, just because a contractor’s crew is qualified to remove asbestos doesn’t mean the same personnel are qualified to remediate mold infestations. Specialized training and experience are essential.NCM has the necessary training, experience, and credentials. We’ve been helping our customers deal with mold problems since 1980. In addition to OSHA and other training requirements, our Certified Indoor Environmentalists (CIE) maintain current certifications (and competency standards) through the American IAQ Council. To maintain certification, these specialists must fulfill rigorous continuing education requirements. It takes a real commitment to personal excellence, and NCM's personnel have that commitment. IAQ Council-certified Microbial Remediator (CMR) personnel are also on staff at NCM.
