Hello everyone, just looking for some help regarding a recent inspection I performed on a multi-unit apartment building. Long story short, one tenant had a little grow-op going on in their unit, police busted him, and ESA came in and disconnected power to that unit.
Now the protocols in place in order for the power to be re-activated is for an air quality/mold inspection to be performed on the unit to determine the air quality and building is safe for the ESA to re-enter and turn the power back on. Now one clause in the protocol is for the lab results to be looked over by a either a Professional Engineer with a Masters in Occupational Hygiene, a Certified Industrial Hygienist, or a Registered Occupational Hygienist, and signing a declaration stating that the building is fit for occupancy and is free from biological and chemical hazards.
Now the question I have is, how do I locate this type of service for my client? Also, I found a small amount of mold in the basement of the unit, unrelated to the grow-op but still obviously in the report - I don’t believe there is need for remediation of this mold as it is not embedded in the wall board, just surface mold. But what if the lab results come back elevated? Am I then required to write out a remediation protocol? Or will a Mold Remediation Company have their own protocols in place?
Sorry for the big post, just need to clarify these issues.
