Molds can be found almost anywhere; they can grow on virtually any organic substance, as long as moisture and oxygen are present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods, and insulation. When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. It is impossible to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment. However, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controlling moisture indoors.

NIOSH Alert!
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has published: Preventing Occupational Respiratory Disease from Exposures Caused by Dampness in Office Buildings, Schools, and Other Nonindustrial Buildings. The guidance includes a building inspection checklist and may be of interest to people working in office buildings, schools and other nonindustrial buildings.

Assessing whether a company’s business practices conform to EPA laws/regulations and follow standards and best practices (compliance)  is a complex and costly task.  A more common philosophy behind environmental compliance is the concept of carrying capacity, Carrying capacity refers to the maximum number of organisms a particular resource can sustain.

Stay in EPA compliance with:
CAA - Clean Air Act  http://www.epa.gov/air/caa
CWA - Clean Water Act  http://www.epa.gov/regulations/laws/cwa.html
RCRA - Resource Conservation & Recovery Act http://www.epa.gov/regulations/laws/rcra.html

National Environmental Policy Act
The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) is a United States environmental law that established a U.S. national policy promoting the enhancement of the environment and also established the President's Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ). As one of the most emulated statutes in the world, NEPA has been called the modern-day equivalent of an “environmental Magna Carta”.

The essential purpose of NEPA is to ensure that environmental factors are weighted equally when compared to other factors in the decision making process undertaken by federal agencies.The act establishes the national environmental policy, including a multidisciplinary approach to considering environmental effects in federal government agency decision making. The act also established the President's Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) to advise the president in the preparation of an annual report on the progress of federal agencies in implementing NEPA, on national policies nurture and promote the improvement of the environments quality, and on the state of the environment. The effectiveness of NEPA originates in its requirement of federal agencies to prepare an environmental statement to accompany reports and recommendations for funding from Congress. This document is called an environmental impact statement (EIS). NEPA is an action-forcing piece of legislation, meaning that the act itself does not carry any criminal or civil sanctions. All enforcement of NEPA was to be obtained through the process of the court system.

A major federal action has been expanded to include most things that a federal agency could prohibit or regulate. In practice, a project is required to meet NEPA guidelines when a federal agency provides any portion of the financing for the project. Sometimes, however, review of a project by a federal employee can be viewed as a federal action and would then, therefore, require NEPA-compliant analysis be performed.

Someone who decides to participate in certified mold inspector training is learning how to improve indoor conditions for homeowners. Although the fungi may not be visually apparent, that does not mean it is absent, which is why the assistance of a certified professional is necessary. The presence of mold means that dampness or decay is occurring, and an abundance of spores can be a health hazard. Respiratory issues, eye irritation, sinus congestion, rashes, or allergic reactions can be results of exposure. The education received is important because improper cleaning methods may deal with the current fungi without removing its potential to be harmful to the inhabitant’s health. Letting it grow out of control may result in a building eventually being condemned, and once the problem becomes too advanced there may be no cost effective way to handle it.
