Standards of Practice

The Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) developed the Indoor Air Quality Certified® (IAQ-C) program, which includes the IAC2 certification for mold inspections. The IAC2 Standard of Practice (SOP) provides guidelines for us to follow during inspections.

As per the IAC2 Mold Inspection SOP, inspectors must identify and report visible mold or conditions that may lead to mold growth. They thoroughly inspect both the interior and exterior of the property, including the roof, crawl spaces, basements, and attics. Moisture meters and other specialized equipment are used to identify moisture intrusion, water damage, or high humidity. If needed, inspectors collect mold samples for laboratory analysis.

After the inspection, the inspector provides a comprehensive written report detailing findings, conclusions. It's crucial to note that inspectors should not engage in mold remediation services.

Additionally, the IAC2 Mold Inspection SOP requires inspectors to have knowledge in microbiology, building science, and environmental health. They should understand mold remediation principles and be capable of recommending appropriate remediation procedures.

While the IAC2 Mold Inspection SOP offers valuable guidelines in your area, it is not an exhaustive guide to mold inspection and remediation.

Homeowners and property managers in your area are advised to consult a certified mold inspector and licensed mold remediation professional if they suspect mold growth on their property, ensuring the safety and health of their homes.
