Internal review performed by The Professionals Panel of www.survivingmold.com
This consensus statement on the prevention, assessment, and remediation of water damaged buildings and the maintenance of indoor environmental quality follows a companion medical consensus statement written by physician colleagues (“SM Certified Physicians”) of the Professionals Panel of www.survivingmold.com. The prior consensus focuses on medical issues found in patients who have a chronic inflammatory illness syndrome acquired following exposure to the interior environment of water-damaged buildings (CIRS-WDB). In cases of CIRS-WDB, we recommend methods for (i) finding causes of and preventing water damage to built environments; (ii) investigating and remediating WDBs when occupants suffer from CIRS-WDB; (iii) maintaining indoor environmental quality (IEQ) over the long-term; and (iv) determining that a damp indoor environment has been remediated and treated successfully such that occupants with CIRS-WDB may safely re-occupy the remediated space.
