The Association of Specialists in Cleaning and Restoration has published "Recommended Professional Practices for Mold Remediation," a comprehensive compendium of information on this rapidly evolving issue.

The goal of the project, approved by the association's board of directors in July 2002, is to give ASCR members a solid understanding of the major issues related to mold remediation, a description of authoritatively accepted industry practices and citations to source documents that support each mainline position, according to ASCR.

"Mold remediation has evolved into a serious environmental issue, related to matters like biohazards and environmental hazards," said Larry Jacobson, executive director of ASCR. "ASCR members need the most up-to-date, well-documented information available to deal with mold and we believe that 'Recommended Professional Practices for Mold Remediation' will be invaluable to them."

The document, researched and compiled by ASCR staff technical advisor Martin King, CR, describes 28 distinct issues pertaining to mold remediation in an easy-to-read chart format. The information will help ASCR members adhere to legally defensible practices endorsed by leading authorities in government and scientific organizations, the association said.

The document is available to ASCR members via the assocation's web site at
