American Industrial Hygiene Association Releases Second Edition of Recognition, Evaluation, and Control of Indoor Mold
The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) has published the second edition of Recognition, Evaluation, and Control of Indoor Mold. This second edition of the book, edited by Ling-Ling Hung, Steven M. Caulfield, and J. David Miller, provides health information which is aligned with the current epidemiology and medical information on environmental allergens, updated taxonomy of the fungi and mold remediation guidelines, and the most current and comprehensive discussion on the basic practice of identifying mold damage, the evaluation of the samples that are collected, and the process of remediation.
The Recognition, Evaluation, and Control of Indoor Mold covers the underlying principles and background of evaluation and control, building evaluation, data interpretation, remediation and control. Images of mold found in building exterior and interior are also provided in the Appendix.
“The book’s aim is to help safety and health professionals do their best work when it comes to mold remediation and control,” said Katie Robert, AIHA Product Development Manager.
This mold resource was written by industrial hygiene practitioners, academics, government officials, and scientists, and has been scrutinized by external peer review. The second edition of Recognition, Evaluation, and Control of Indoor Mold is intended as a resource for practicing industrial hygienists, architects, mechanical engineers, IAQ practitioners, home inspectors and other professionals who work in indoor environmental quality, heating, ventilating and air conditioning, and microbial assessment and remediation.
