Mold Scams-Mold Inspector Link
In a perfect world you could trust everyone, but it’s not a perfect world. Like every industry, the mold business has its share of scammers and con men seeking to profit from your lack of knowledge about mold. Here are the top mold scams and tips on how to avoid them.

Indoor Air Quality Association

American Council for Accredited Certification
The ACAC operates accredited certification programs for professionals in indoor air quality and related fields.

Accredited Certification ACAC
The ACAC offers the only third-party designations dedicated to the field of indoor air quality. Though its board-awarded designations meet all these requirements and more, the same cannot be said of many other professional certification programs. Other organizations allow office staffers to grant certification in exchange for payment of fees and passing a simple examination based on a mandatory course with limited information. Field experience is rarely required, much less verified. As a result, “instant certifications” from such organizations are nearly worthless when challenged in court.

Orion Construction Residential Measurement Provider NEHA NRPP ID 106670RT
Residential Mitigation Provider

Individuals holding the Residential Mitigation Provider certification have demonstrated knowledge of radon mitigation techniques as applied to residential structures. Although this classification is specific for reducing radon in buildings similar to homes, it does not preclude the individual’s ability to apply these skills to larger buildings. In all cases the consumer is advised to verify experience, references, licenses, and skills for the nature of work to be performed. Certified radon mitigation service providers have also agreed to abide by local laws as well as the mitigation techniques detailed in the U.S. Radon Mitigation Standards.

EHA-NRPP Radon Certifications
Residential Measurement Provider Standard and Analytical Services
Individuals holding a Residential Measurement Provider for Standard and Analytical Services have demonstrated knowledge of U.S. EPA radon measurement protocols for the placement and retrieval of radon measurement devices. They have also demonstrated knowledge of the proper interpretation of results obtained in residential settings. Furthermore, these individuals possess and analyze radon measurement devices. Depending upon the specific device, this may allow for rapid provision of test results. The testing professional may also be able to characterize trends in radon concentration and determine unusual conditions arising from such influences as weather changes or occupant tampering of a test. To obtain this additional classification, individuals follow strict quality assurance and quality control guidelines and device specific protocols, and calibrate each instrument annually. The classification is specific to devices with which an individual has demonstrated proficiency. Although this classification is specific for measurements in homes, it does not preclude the ability to conduct radon measurement surveys in large buildings or to take samples for radon in water, provided that the appropriate protocols are followed.
