This electronic pdf version of the IICRC S520 - 2nd Edition is a procedural standard and reference guide for the remediation of mold damaged structures and contents. The S520 is based on reliable remediation and restoration principles, research and practical experience, and attempts to combine essential academic principles with practical elements of water damage restoration for technicians facing “real-life” mold remediation challenges.
The S520 is written for use by those involved in the mold remediation industry, and is the result of collaboration among microbiologists and other scientists, public health professionals, industrial hygienists, remediation contractors, restoration service companies, cleaning and restoration training schools, trade associations that service the professional restoration industry, allied trade-persons, and others with related professional and practical experience.
This standard practices guide was written over a period of four years, with original input from 35 experts serving on an S520 Standard Development Committee. 60-to-70 industry professionals assisted with content evaluation and, at its zenith, 350 community members handled the peer review of the treatise before an editing committee sorted and cataloged 827 contributions. While not all of the data submitted was included in the final work, all contributions not used were archived for future reference. Four attorneys specializing in hazardous workplace law were retained to review the final work, assuring readers of accuracy.
