ANSI/IICRC S520-2015

Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation

This document is written for use by those involved in the mold remediation industry, primarily for mold remediation companies and workers, and secondarily, for others who investigate or assess mold complaints, prepare remediation specifications, protocols or procedures, and manage remediation projects, (e.g., indoor environmental professionals (IEPs), other specialized experts) and finally, for other potential materially interested parties (e.g., consumers and occupants, property owners and managers, insurance company representatives, government and regulatory bodies).


ANSI/IICRC S500-2015

Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration

ANSI/IICRC S500-2015 provides a specific set of practical standards for water damage restoration. It does not attempt to teach comprehensive water damage restoration procedures; rather, it provides the foundation for basic principles of proper restoration practices. ANSI/IICRC S500-2015 does not attempt to include exhaustive performance characteristics or standards for the manufacture or installation of structural components, materials and contents (personal property).  ANSI/IICRC S500-2015 Standard for Professional Water Damage Restoration is a procedural standard. It is based on reliable restoration principles, research and practical experience. In addition, there has been extensive consultation and information obtained from numerous sources. These sources include, but are not necessarily limited to the scientific community, international, national and regional trade associations serving the professional restoration industry, chemical formulators and equipment manufacturers, cleaning and restoration training schools, restoration service companies, the insurance industry, allied trades persons and others with specialized experience. It is subject to further revision as developments occur in technology, testing and processing procedures.  


IICRC R520-2015

REFERENCE GUIDE FOR PROFESSIONAL MOLD REMEDIATION

The ANSI/IICRC S520 Standard summarizes most of the significant and important procedures and methodologies of a mold remediation project, while the IICRC S520 Reference Guide restates and further explains those procedures and methodologies, and provides additional background information, which supports the Standard. Although the material in the Reference Guide does not carry the official status of a Standard, the two sections complement one another and should always be considered in tandem.

ANSI/IICRC S520/IICRC R520-2015

STANDARD AND REFERENCE GUIDE FOR PROFESSIONAL MOLD REMEDIATION

The ANSI/IICRC S520 is a procedural standard for the remediation of mold damaged structures and contents. The ANSI/IICRC S520 is based on reliable remediation and restoration principles, research and practical experience, and attempts to combine essential academic principles with practical elements of water damage restoration for technicians facing "real-life" mold remediation challenges. The S520 and R520 are written for use by those involved in the mold remediation industry, and is the result of collaboration among microbiologists and other scientists, public health professionals, industrial hygienists, remediation contractors, restoration service companies, cleaning and restoration training schools, trade associations that service the professional restoration industry, allied trade-persons and others with related professional and practical experience.  ANSI/IICRC S520-2015 Standard and IICRC R520 Reference Guide is published as two separate documents: the standard itself and a supplementary reference guide. The procedural standard is supported by the reference guide. The intent is to use the principles outlined in the reference guide as a tool to better understand and apply the standard itself. However, the reference guide is not considered part of this standard.

ANSI/IICRC S100-2015

Standard for Professional Cleaning of Textile Floor Coverings

The science of cleaning and maintenance of installed textile floor coverings has grown significantly during the last 24 years. The IICRC first published the Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Carpet Cleaning (S001) in 1991 and revised it as the S100 in 1994, 1997, 2002 and 2011. The Sixth Edition of the IICRC S100 (2015) contains additional updates and revisions.


IICRC S500 3rd Edition

Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration

This Standard describes the procedures to be followed and the precautions to be taken when performing water damage restoration in residential, commercial and institutional buildings, and the systems and personal property contents of those structures.
This Standard assumes that the determination and correction of the underlying source or cause of the water intrusion leading to the water damage is the responsibility of the property owner and not the restorer, although the property owner may contract with the restorer or other specialized experts to perform these services.
Water damage restoration consists of the following components for which procedures are described in this Standard:
- Principles of Water Damage Restoration;
- Building and Material Science;
- Psychrometry;
- Safety and Health;
- Administrative Procedures, Project Documentation and Risk Management;
- Inspections, Preliminary Determinations and Pre-Restoration Evaluations (Project Planning);
- Limitations, Complexities, Complications, and Conflicts;
- Specialized Experts;
- Structural Restoration;
- Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Restoration
- Contents Evaluation and Restoration
