State Mold Regulations went into effect in 2005. These regulations mandate the use of State Licensed Mold Assessment Consultants (MAC) to assess/test potential mold affected areas, document a Mold Remediation PROTOCOL, and conduct clearance testing to issue a Mold Certificate. These regulations also mandate the use of a State Licensed Mold Remediation Contractor (MRC) to physically remove the mold in accordance to the PROTOCOL developed by the MAC. The MRC cannot remove any building materials that are not in the PROTOCOL. The State regulations prohibit the MAC and MRC being the same person or from the same company on the same job. The above requlations are REQUIRED when the mold affected area is greater than 25 (including a 2' "buffer" cutout around the perimeter) contiguous square feet. If the mold contaminated area is less than 25 contiguous square feet, then the mold regulations do not apply. HOWEVER, BE AWARE THAT CROSS CONTAMINATION OF THE HOME CAN OCCUR WHEN THERE IS LESS THAN 25 SQUARE FEET.
To view the Mold Regulations at the State website, go to: http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/mold/rules.shtm and select download preferences.
If a TDI "Certificate of Mold Damage Remediation" is desired (for example in a real estate transaction), then the mold regulations must be followed regardless of the square footage of the contaminated area. Call me for an explanation of the TWO types of legal use of the mold certificate. To download a copy of the mold certificate, go to: http://www.tdi.state.tx.us/forms/pcpersonal/pc326mdr1.pdf
It is strongly recommended that the two page "Consumer Information Sheet" be downloaded from the above website. The Texas Mold Remediation Rules can also be downloaded from this website: http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/mold/forms.shtm#info
