3. Microbial (Mold & Bacteria) Investigations / Preventive Programs

a) Microbial Investigations / Assessments


Microbial (Mold and Bacteria) Contaminants and Remediation Surveys can be performed to determine presence and levels of microbial amplification within a space. Most microbial issues are moisture-related: Roof, window, wall and foundation leaks, condensation control deficiencies, reversed or compromised vapor barriers, HVAC insulation deficiencies, are among the many potential sources of moisture.


Some microbial issues are vector-based (cross-contamination) and may be affected by the following: Traffic patterns, donning/doffing, ingress/egress, patient-handling procedures, filter change procedures, disinfection procedures and food-handling procedures. Non-human transmission routes can include airflow patterns, manufacturer supply quality, storage deficiencies, and rodents or arthropods. Sampling can involve air, water, soil, materials, HVAC components, etc.


b) Mold Operations and Maintenance (MOM) Program


MOM programs are the combination of policies and building management systems aimed at proactively maintaining the building integrity and mechanical systems in place.


MOM programs have been designed to detect and eliminate water intrusion, or uncontrolled moisture accumulation to help prevent mold growth.


Main Components of the MOM Program:

  • Policy & Program Management
  • Property Assessment and Building Inspection Plan
  • HVAC Operation and Maintenance Plan
  • Indoor Environmental Quality Plan and Periodic Monitoring Program
  • Water Intrusion Detection and Prevention Plan
  • Water Intrusion Emergency Response Plan
  • Microbial Clean Up and Remediation Plan
  • Construction Management and Control Guidelines
  • Occupant, Employee and Contractor Training Program
  • Communication, Documentation and Record Keeping
