When It Comes to Mold Remediation, Certifications Matter
Having mold in your home can be a very serious issue. Not only can mold damage the structure of your house, but it can also severely affect the health of you and your family.
When searching for a mold removal company, it’s important to remember that certifications matter. Unfortunately, anyone with about $500 worth of equipment and not a single certification can call themselves a “mold removal professional”. Hiring one of these companies or contractors who aren’t properly certified can ultimately end up costing you more in the long run that you would like.
Here at MoldPro LLC, we have multiple certifications to give you confidence that when you work with us, we’ll properly solve your mold problem for the long term.
National Association of Mold Professionals (NAMP)
The National Association of Mold Professionals is a non-profit organization that was established with the goal of developing and promoting the Mold Inspection and Remediation industry. NAMP is America’s oldest and largest Mold Association.
The mission of NAMP is to promote excellence and professionalism in the Mold Inspection and Remediation industry; to provide standards of practice and a code of ethics; to educate our members; and to inform the public of the benefits and scope of a professional mold inspection and/or remediation.
To that end, NAMP has developed a training and certification program to provide education and authoritative credentials for Mold Professionals. The NAMP Certification Course is America’s oldest and most respected certification course.
