Remediation for Sensitized Individuals

There is a critical need for environmental contractors who are specifically trained to help sensitized people find a safe haven in their homes. This one-day technical seminar is designed for mold remediation contractors, cleaning companies, inspectors, and others who are serious about assisting sensitized people. It offers a comprehensive approach to these challenging situations by addressing every aspect of a mold remediation project, including source removal, content cleaning, decontamination of HVAC systems, and elimination of microbial reservoirs from the entire structure.

While many contractors advertise services that address water-damaged buildings, few of them have taken the time to study the ever expanding science related to building contaminants and health, or even the latest remediation techniques. Since a growing group of physicians are specializing in biotoxin illness related to water-damaged buildings, restoration and cleaning contractors are being called upon to assist with projects where their effectiveness has a direct impact on the health of the occupants.

In such cases both the clients and the contractor are learning the hard way that standard mold remediation protocols are not enough. This training program bridges the gaps in the current standard of care for fungal remediation to help those people battling to regain their health after a biotoxin illness by linking them with contractors that understand the ramifications of their actions. 

In the past, one of the most difficult aspects of addressing the environmental component of a biotoxin illness is that even good contractors were not sure how to determine whether an occupied space was "clean enough" after remediation. Contractors who complete this new program will learn of specific endpoints that have been shown to be beneficial for sensitized individuals.
