General Guidelines Regarding Mold Remediation Work

The need to verify the proper insurances, certifications, licensing, technical training & experience cannot be overstated.

Insurance companies issuing million-dollar insurance policies perform due diligence and research and investigate people making claims. They also investigate the contractor. Don’t make the mistake of hiring a contractor who isn’t prepared to do business. 

Robust insurance is a strong indicator of the contractor’s competency to complete the work. The lack of professional insurances is also a very strong indicator that they are not going to stand behind their product and service. 

  1. Are all mold remediation companies in Georgia licensed? No they are not. It is important to understand that Georgia has no regulatory oversight for mold assessments or mold remediation. The top professionals for mold remediation and environmental work in Georgia secure licensing in Florida where there is government oversight of the industry. In Florida they require a criminal background check plus licensing. Contractors in Georgia set themselves apart with industry licensing from Florida. 
  2. Where can environmentally conscious consumers find a list of licensed mold remediation professionals? Current license holders can be found online by the State of Florida DBPR, Dept. of Business and Professional Regulation. The American Council for Accredited Certification is another legitimate resource, where current license holders can be found online. Note that there are many persons who hold certifications that lack legitimacy or credibility. Environmental professionals should be able to demonstrate multiple certifications and current continuing education training.
  3. Persons performing mold remediation should have the following:
    • Environmental Pollution Insurance, (addresses mold issues)
    • Professional Liability Insurance, (addresses mold issues)
    • General Liability Insurance, (General Liability does NOT COVER MOLD)
    • Certification and or Licensed for mold remediation work for competence issues inquire about professional training history. Documentable “Work History” is required & verified by State of Florida DBPR & The American Council for Accredited Certification

How to identify and hire a professional mold remediation environmental specialist:

  1. Many amateurs who take one short minimal training class where the only requirement is a valid credit card; and subsequently claim to be “experts”.
    • Experienced in mold remediation work (with documentable proof, exceeding 5 years)
    • Mold Remediation Equipment proof of specifically designed air quality equipment.
    • Google Reviews, satisfactory in number and relevant content relating to scope of work.
    • Criminal Background Check is required by many Insurance Companies to be an Approved Vendor; and required by the State of Florida DBPR for licensing. (Georgia has no requirements).
