    Good article but missing some valuable information. There is a federal standard for mold remediation, ANSI accredited IICRC S520 Standard & Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation. There are also certifications that should be verified if you are having mold remediation done. These can be verified at and be sure that you have a qualified AMRT technician and the proper insurance.
