    Re: Sporicidin and Bleach

    Posted by Rem Dude on 12/16/08

    Sporicidin and/or bleach is a poor method of remediation that some
    less than informed remediators use. The use of biocides has little
    effect on spores so all that is accomplished is a chemical dosing
    the structure with a pesticide. The bulk of the contamination is
    left behind.

    The properly owner is ultimately responsible for the remediation
    technique used and chemistry applied. Therefore, it is important to
    review all MSDS and EPA registrations on the chemistry to be used.
    There are several chemical manufacturers and remediators who refuse
    to provide either.

    Vet your remediator:

    1. Should have a minimum of 4 years of experience
    2. Your state may require additional licensing & certification
    3. Should provide certificates of training by IAQA or IICRC
    4. Should have insurance including environmental pollution
    5. Provide MSDS and EPA registration on ALL chemicals used
    6. Should follow a common remediation standard
    7. Should provide a 2-4 year workmanship warranty
    8. Should advise you to have 3rd party clearance performed
    9. Should provide you with list of references
    10. Should specialize only in mold remediation
