AIHA Announces New Online Mold Resource Center

AIHA now provides an online Mold Resource Center as a reference guide.

According to a news release, the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) launched a Mold Resource Center, an online reference guide for consumers and professionals to learn fast facts on mold, the potential adverse health effects of mold exposure, why remediation and prevention is important, what to do if you are victim of an indoor flood, and where to find help to prevent mold infestation. 

In addition to natural catastrophes, such as the recent Hurricane Joaquin that caused historic rain fall and flooding in the Carolinas, excessive indoor moisture in a building can lead to mold problems, resulting in an increased risk of respiratory disease, according to the CDC.

AIHA's Mold Resource Center provides information to consumers and industry professionals regarding mold, including Facts about Mold, Flood Response Resources, a listing of additional online resources about mold, detailed articles from  trusted news source, the Synergist magazine, and a 2015 AIHA Consultants Listing, where one can search for mold specialists by state.

"The AIHA Mold Resource Center should be the first stop on the internet for professionals, home owners, and business owners affected by mold growth and contamination caused by flooding, storms, and water intrusion into buildings," Donald Weekes, CIH, CSP, FAIHA, member of the AIHA Board of Directors' Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Committee said. "The Center provides up-to-date information useful for the detection of mold in buildings as well as the successful remediation of the contamination."
