What is Mold?

Mold—which is actually a fungus made up of multicellular filaments called hyphae—can be found almost anywhere; the many, many types of mold—including black mold and toxic mold—grow on virtually any substance, as long as there is moisture. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet and foods.

Some molds are toxic to humans, and exposure to them has the potential to cause a vast array of respiratory and other health issues as well as property damage. AMD Environmental has the equipment and experience to perform mold testing, sampling and monitoring on jobs of all sizes.

Outdoors, mold has a natural role as a catalyst for decomposing organic matter. Indoors however, mold spores in large quantities, and accumulation can cause respiratory illness, give rise to allergies and allergic reactions, and potential serious threats to human health. Mold can also compromise the structural integrity of your property. We test for mold in the walls, to help you get rid of mold in your property

Mold Assessments

New York State consumer protections for mold testing

According to the New York State Department of Labor Mold Program: Article 32 of the New York State Labor Law, it is unlawful for any person to engage, advertise or hold themselves out as a mold assessor, remediation contractor, or abatement worker unless they have a valid mold license, issued by the Commissioner, for the type of work they will be performing.

The Department’s Mold Program, updated as of January 1, 2016, is responsible for enforcing Article 32. It established licensing requirements and minimum work standards for professionals engaged in mold assessment and remediation. There are three main components to the law:

Training: The Mold Program will protect consumers by requiring contractors to obtain appropriate training prior to being licensed to perform mold assessment, remediation or abatement services.

Licensing: Contractors will not be allowed to advertise or perform covered work without the required license, with limited exceptions such as home or business owners performing work on their own properties.

Minimum Work Standards: The Mold Program also establishes new minimum work standards for mold assessments and remediation activities by licensed professionals, including:

The law also provides consumer protection against fraud by prohibiting the performance of both the assessment and remediation on the same property by the same individual and by requiring an independent mold assessor, like AMD Environmental, to define the scope of the remediation work.

AMD Environmental helps both property owners and contractors navigate, understand, apply and abide by New York State’s Mold Program legislation. In addition to providing the mold assessments and work specifications for contractors, we also provide the training that mold assessors and contractors need to obtain and maintain their certifications.

Our experts inspect commercial buildings, and residential homes for visible signs of fungus, mold, and water staining or moisture intrusion both inside and out.
