Canadian Construction Association – Mould Guidelines
In June 2002, the Canadian Construction Association created a Mould Task Force to develop national guidelines to assist contractors in minimizing the potential for mould growth, and instituting effective remediation practices.
This document is the product of that work. These national guidelines provide useful information and step-by-step
MOULD ASSESSMENT and Removal
Prior to tendering a construction project involving an existing building, an investigation should be conducted to assess and identify the areas or probable areas of mould growth within the building and HVAC system. Simple inspections can be performed by design professionals, building owners, or construction managers, while more complicated or extensive investigations should be performed by qualified environmental professionals.
Prior to starting remediation, it is important to determine the extent and objective(s) of the work.
Eco-Impact and Mould Experts offers comprehensive testing, analysis of the problem and consultancy.
