Not every mold remediator has the knowledge, experience, and equipment necessary to properly remove the microorganism. Last year, Florida’s Senate addressed the growing need to certify Florida mold remediators by passing Bill 2234. This bill mandates all Florida mold remediators pass certification exams before conducting mold removal. In addition, the bill also forbids the same company from performing the “testing or assessment” and the “remediation” in an effort to further protect you, the consumer. The details can be found in this article, which was published in the Palm Beach Post.
