Mold has been a known indoor air quality concern since at least 1994, and a lot has been learned about mold in the years since. However, to date, there are still no federal regulations governing mold. A few states (New York, New Jersey, Texas, and Maryland) and municipalities (New York City and San Francisco) have started to establish remedial standards and guidelines. Additionally, the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification, or IICRC for short, has established what have become the industry standards for mold remediation and water restoration; the ICCRC S500 & S520. Yet, no one agency or entity has determined or established acceptable levels for exposure to airborne mold spores. Today, the commonly excepted industry guidelines suggest that the total and individual mold spore concentrations in an indoor environment should be similar to and/or less than the outdoor air.
