The purpose is to provide standardized procedures to be used for the investigation of educational structures for readily observable mold or conditions associated with mold amplification. The initial investigative process includes, but is not limited to, initial information gathering, documentation of relevant historical events and observations from an on-site walk-through. There are four potential outcomes: Neither mold nor associated conditions were readily observable. Mold was not readily observable but associated conditions were. Mold was readily observed but no associated conditions were. Readily observed mold and conditions. Outcomes 2, 3 or 4 may warrant additional investigation by a qualified professional.
