Ebola, toxic mold, and other biological building inspection, testing, and removal procedures and protocols are now taught in a new environmental training program to train and certify individuals across the world as a Certified Decontamination Specialist,
Montrose, MI, October 21, 2014 — “The new Ebola, toxic mold, and other biohazards building decontamination training curriculum is now available at www.decontaminationgear.com, so that governmental and private business employees worldwide can be well-trained and certified as a Certified Decontamination Specialist,” announced Phillip Fry, Executive Director, Environmental Hygienists Association (E.H.A.), and a Certified Environmental Hygienist and Professional Industrial Hygienist.
The E.H.A. online, textbook, and classroom decontamination training enables students to master how they can—
1. Prepare and follow a well-thought-out decontamination protocol plan custom-created for the specific home or other building being decontaminated.
2. Wear and use appropriate and complete personal protective gear for total personal safety during environmental inspections and decontamination procedures.
3. Test room and area air for biological dangers such as airborne bacteria, viruses, and toxic mold spores.
4. Test the outward air from heating and cooling air duct supply registers for elevated levels of airborne bacteria, viruses, and toxic mold spores.
5. Use a high resolution, 63 feet long fiber optics inspection cable with video camera to visually inspect inside heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment and ducts for bacteria, viral, and toxic mold spores infestations.
6. Test the surfaces and the insides of room ceilings, walls, floors, attics, basements, and crawl spaces for biological dangers such as bacteria, Ebola and other viruses, and toxic mold spores.
7. Use a high resolution infrared camera to scan all floors, walls, ceilings, building exterior, attic, basement, and crawl spaces for hidden moisture (that would indicate possible hidden toxic mold growth).
8. Test the building’s water supply and water storage facilities for biological dangers such as bacteria, Ebola and other viruses, and toxic mold spores.
9. Test painted older surfaces and building materials for the possible presence of lead.
10. Collect samples of older building materials for asbestos lab analysis.
11. Do radon testing of the building;
12. Test clothing, drapery, carpeting and padding, rugs, furniture, furnishings, and other personal possessions for biological dangers such as bacteria, Ebola and other viruses, and toxic mold spores.
13. Whether done for a remediation and/or prevention purpose, decontaminate all building surfaces, furniture, furnishings, personal possessions, and heating/cooling equipment and ducts with high-tech decontamination gear and procedures such as:
(a) Rotobrush air duct cleaning equipment to remove mold spores, germ growth, and dirt inside HVAC ducts;
(b) fogging an EPA-registered (for use in HVAC ducts) biocide to kill HVAC duct germs, mold spores, and mold growth;
(c) high EnviroFry output ozone generators to kill airborne toxic mold spores, bacteria, and Ebola and other viruses;
(d) high output EnviroFry negative ion generators with collector plates to remove mold spores, germs, viruses, and dust from indoor air;
(e) high capacity air scrubbers to remove airborne mold spores, dust, and other air contaminates and pollutants from the indoor air;
(f) HEPA vacuuming of all walls, floors, and furnishings to remove landed or deposited mold spores , bacteria, viruses, and other contaminates;
(g) wiping and cleaning all walls, floors, and furniture and furnishing surfaces with an EPA-registered biocide to kill germs, mold spores, and mold colony growth;
(h) fogging an EPA-registered biocide in the air of all rooms and areas to kill germs, mold spores, and mold colony growth; and
(i) fogging EnviroFry enzyme neutralizer in all rooms and areas to neutralize germs, mold spores, and mold colony growth.
