AIHA Releases Important Position Statement on Mold and Dampness in the Built Environment
Professionals who investigate and resolve IAQ and moisture issues depend on insurance from Legends Environmental Insurance Services.
Orange, CA, April 15th, 2013 -- A few weeks ago, the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) released a position statement on mold and dampness in the built environment. The AIHA represents approximately 10,000 members worldwide who practice industrial hygiene services.
This highly anticipated document provides important information regarding mold, indoor air quality (IAQ), and moisture in buildings. The AIHA Position Statement reports, “…the position of AIHA is that persistent dampness and mold damage in the non-industrial workplace, including schools and residential housing, requires prevention, management and effective remediation. If visible mold is present, it should be remediated, regardless of what species are present. Such actions are likely to reduce new onset asthma, lead to savings in health care costs, and improve public health.”
Fortunately, there are dedicated professionals who are members of organizations such as AIHA, IAQA, EIA, RIA, and other groups who provide services that identify, resolve, and prevent problems due to moisture and mold in indoor environments. These professionals provide unique services that require specialized environmental insurance coverage.
