New York State has finally come to terms with the reality that Mold Remediation is a dangerous business that must be regulated and performed by qualified restoration contractors like Wolf Disaster Services. As of January 1st, 2016 and company performing mold remediation of black mold or any type of mold will have to be licensed by NYS and meet the below requirements.

Here at Wolf Disaster Services, we service Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and Suffolk County, Long Island. We have already met all filing requirements and have submitted our application. Please make sure any company you plan on working with is Licensed by New York State.

The Department’s new Mold Program, which is responsible for enforcing Article 32 of the New York State Labor Law, establishes licensing requirements and minimum work standards for professionals engaged in mold assessment and remediation.

There are three main components to the new law:

Training: The Mold Program will protect consumers by requiring contractors to obtain appropriate training prior to being licensed to perform mold assessment, remediation or abatement services.

Licensing: Contractors will not be allowed to advertise or perform covered work without the required license, with limited exceptions such as home or business owners performing work on their own properties.

Minimum Work Standards : The Mold Program also establishes new minimum work assessments and remediation activities by licensed professionals, including:

Protection against fraud by prohibiting the performance of both the assessment and remediation on the same property by the same individual;

Protection against fraud by requiring an independent mold assessment to define the scope of the remediation work;

Identification of disinfectant products, consistent with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards;

Provision of personal protection equipment to employees, as necessary;
