EnviroVantage is pleased to offer this guide as a free download on their website.
Excerpt from the guide:
In 2008, a group of New Hampshire Legislators, business leaders, and heath administrators came together with the same concern: there are currently no laws in place to protect the citizens of NH when it comes to mold and poor indoor air quality. This group of professionals was motivated to find a way to get mold legislation on the books, and they worked together for several months to write and propose a bill to the NH House of Representatives. In 2009, House Bill 4821, relative to mold assessment, testing, and remediation and sponsored by NH Representatives French, Beck, Petterson, and Merrill, was presented on the floor and did not pass, losing by just one vote.
Not ready to give up, the group approached the lawmakers involved, who suggested that the group form a “Mold Task Force,” with the goal of creating a Standard of Care for the NH Mold Industry. The New Hampshire Mold Task Force (NHMTF) was formed, and the group spent the next several months creating what is now this document. The goal of this Standard of Care is to provide information to the citizens of NH not only about the causes of indoor mold, the possible health risks, and prevention measures, but also about the Mold Industry in general, including best practices and tips for hiring consultants and contractors.
