Post-Remediation Verifications (PRV)

In Florida, there are two licenses that pertain to mold: Mold Assessors and Mold Remediators. These two licenses work together to ensure proper mold remediation. If a homeowner suspects they have a mold problem, a licensed Mold Assessor should evaluate the concern and determine the presence of mold. Additionally, the Mold Assessor should identify the source of the mold and decide if professional remediation is necessary. If remediation is required, the Mold Assessor should prepare a Mold Remediation Protocol. This protocol provides site-specific directions for the proper remediation of the mold. A licensed Mold Remediator from a separate company should then follow the protocol to remediate the mold.

After the Mold Remediator has completed the remediation, the Mold Assessor should return to the property and complete a Post-Remediation Verification (PRV) to ensure that the mold was properly remediated. To confirm the remediation, the Mold Assessor will use visual observations, moisture measurements, air samples, and verify that the Mold Remediation Protocol was properly followed. The Mold Assessor should prepare a PRV report that confirms the proper remediation of the mold. If these steps are followed, homeowners can rest assured that their mold problem has been properly remediated.
