Ever since the Mold Laws were put into effect in New York, there has been a careful and shrewd approach from tenants, landlords, and property owners when it comes to choosing a mold company to address their mold issues. Fortunately, the state of New York has taken measures to handle this.

The state of New York has a list of requirements required by law for mold assessors, remediators, and removers. Individuals who wish to seek the services of mold companies can use this to help them select who to hire.

This law was enforced by the Mold Program to protect both property owner and tenant by ensuring that these professionals are qualified to engage in a mold project.

Mold workers are required to undergo official training by the Department of Labor and have a mold-related license issued by the Commissioner.
