Your Guide to Mold Protection Levels

Not everything natural is good for you. Take mold, for example. It operates in dark, musty places, and is mostly unseen, but it can wreak havoc on your health. If you suspect mold, it is important to get it removed right away.

When removing mold, the protection level that workers use is determined by the amount of mold contamination. Contamination levels are classified as I, II, III, and IV. The lowest level, I, refers to smaller areas of 10 square feet or fewer, and level II is 10-30 square feet. Removal can be performed by trained building staff for these levels. For level III, (30-11 square feet) and level IV, only professionals should attempt remediation. At those levels only those who are trained in handling of hazardous materials are to work at removal. They must also use proper protective equipment like gloves and eye protection, and be outfitted with respiratory equipment.

It is not only those who occupy a mold-infested building who are at risk. Removing mold requires the proper protection level to make sure everyone stays safe.
