Mold removal requires a strategy to deal with the cause(s) of moisture and the mold contaminants. The university follows the New York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene, Bureau of Environmental & Occupational Disease Epidemiology, Guidelines on Assessment and Remediation of Fungi in Indoor Environments.
The Office of Health and Safety (OHS) provides technical assistance in the evaluation and mitigation of mold. OHS assists in the development of a campus mold abatement strategy, which includes determining abatement priorities; writing abatement contracts; supervising abatement contractors; monitoring environmental and occupational mold levels before, during and after abatement; collecting and disposing of waste; and complying with applicable regulations.
