How Florida's Mold Laws Protect You

Mold on sheetrock behind water heater Here you can see a mold colony that has grown on the wall behind a leaking water heater.

As of July 11, 2011, Florida law prohibits mold remediation companies to also conduct mold assessments.  

First, let us establish the difference. A mold assessment is a process of collecting samples and identifying the severity (if any) and type of mold that exists. The mold assessor with then come up with a custom protocol for remediating the mold based on the test results. Mold remediation is the actual removal of mold as outlined in the protocol provided by the mold assessor. The reason the “Florida State Mold Law” legislative was established was to protect the consumer from a conflict of interest that may occur when the same company both assesses and remediates the mold damage.
