Standards of Practice

The Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) is at the forefront of maintaining Indoor Air Quality Certified® (IAQ-C) standards. Within this, the IAC2 certification for mold inspections sets the bar. The IAC2 Standard of Practice (SOP) guides inspectors on mold assessments.

Inspectors, adhere to stringent guidelines:

  1. Detect and report visible mold or conditions promoting its growth.

  2. Scrutinize interiors, exteriors, roofs, crawl spaces, basements, and attics.

  3. Employ equipment like moisture meters to locate moisture intrusion, water damage, and humidity.

  4. Collect mold samples for lab analysis when necessary.

  5. Present a comprehensive written report, detailing findings and recommendations, minus remediation services.

  6. Adhere to relevant laws and mold inspection regulations.

Additionally, IAC2's Mold Inspection SOP demands inspector proficiency in microbiology, building science, and environmental health. Understanding mold remediation principles and suggesting suitable remedies is also required.

It's crucial to understand that IAC2's Mold Inspection SOP isn't exhaustive. For robust mold inspection and remediation, property owners and managers should consult certified inspectors and licensed remediation professionals.
