The purpose of the Post Remediation Verification
Testing (PRVT)/Clearanceis to confirm the successful completion of professional mold remediation work allowing containment to be safely removed and any re-build work to commence (if applicable). The mold Inspection (PRVT) assessment requires a complete written report including, laboratory analysis of samples collected, findings and conclusions.Complete visual inspection of the work area to ensure that no areas of visible mold growth remain clean and without evidence of settled dust, dirt and debris on horizontal and vertical surfaces. Verification that the indoor fungal ecology within the work area is similar to or less than (cleaner) than outdoor (exterior) results can also be performed to verify successful remediation.
