In Virginia, Maryland, and many other states, mold remediation contractors are not required to obtain any special licenses or certifications. That’s right, anyone with access to a van and rudimentary tools could call themselves a “mold remediation specialist” when in reality, they are a giant scam.
It happens all the time!
To counteract these frauds, there are many reputable organizations all over the country that have very strict certification guidelines to ensure the utmost quality and professionalism. These organizations are the watchdogs for the mold remediation industry and consumers alike.
The bottom line is if the mold mediation contractor you are considering for the job isn’t certified, you’re best just walking away now while you still can.
While there are many highly reputable organizations that take their job extremely seriously when it comes to the certification process, there are equally as many shady organizations that claim to offer certifications for barely lifting a finger.
Only reputable certifications come from hard work, long hours of training, dedication to the craft, and a no-exceptions attitude. Paying a one-time fee or attending a virtual class doesn’t necessarily mean a mold remediation contractor is “certified.”
The best way to identify which certifications are truly something to be proud of and which ones are just for show is by doing your own independent research. Ask your supposed mold remediation contractor for a list of their certifications and just run a quick Google search; you will find everything you need to know.
As we mentioned before, very few states require any sort of licensing or certification. When you are dealing with mold, you want the most experienced people on the job. Mold poses serious health risks to individuals of all ages and can quickly spread to other areas of the home, at which point there is no easy remedy.
Mold remediation is a complex process involving many forms of advanced technology and procedures. Double and triple-checking that your mold remediation contractor has the proper certifications will ensure they can achieve the following:
