Mold & The Indoor Environment: Understanding the Risk
Wednesday, April 17, 2019, 2pm ET
Dr. Rajiv R. Sahay, CIAQP, FIAS
Environmental Diagnostics Laboratory Director
The EPA estimates that 1 in every 4 buildings in the U.S. are “Sick”. 1 in 6 people suffer from allergies and asthma related to mold and other fouling in the HVAC system. This means over 64 million building occupants suffer annually from headaches, irritates eyes, sinus congestion and more!
Everyone from operations and facilities management knows the “M-word”. But what about the “M-Factors”: Moisture, Materials and Manifestation? Many are unwilling to talk about it because of tight or deferred maintenance budgets. However, ignoring it only costs more in the long run!
This free online education session will take an in-depth look at how different kinds of mold can affect indoor air quality and the well-being of building occupants. Dr. Sahay will outline conditions that contribute to mold, how to investigate mold in a building, methods used to identify/quantify mold, the types of mold in concentration that are most harmful, and what can be done to minimize mold in buildings.
- Favorable Conditions for Mold
- Common Types of Mold
- Investigating and Sampling
- Methods for Identification and Quantification
- Most Serious Types of Mold
- Effects on Building Occupants
- Steps to Promote Good IAQ
