What is a Mold Assessor?
Mold Assessor in The State of Florida
Florida Statute 468.8411 defines, “Mold assessor” means any person who performs or directly supervises a mold assessment.
Mold assessment means a process performed by a mold assessor that includes the physical sampling (Air Cell Test and Swap Samples) and detailed evaluation of data obtained from an inspection of a building to formulate an initial assessment about the identity, origin, location, and extent of amplification of mold growth of greater than ten square feet. Typically they are not a cause of origin expert.
In simple terms, if 10 square feet of mold exist they will write a mold protocol that outlines their findings when assessing the mold damage to a home or business. Then typically an insured, homeowner or business owner will higher a Licensed Mold Remediator to remove and clean a home or business until the mold is removed and they are able to pass a Post Remediation Verification test which is also performed by a Licensed Mold Assessor
