Proactive Moisture and Indoor Air Quality Management Plan

Responding to moisture, mold and indoor air quality problems is faster and easier when contingency plans to deal with them are already in place. Unfortunately, most building owners and operators are in a reactive mode when it comes to handling moisture, mold and indoor air quality issues.


Proactive Moisture and Indoor Air Quality Management Plans involve finding potential problem areas before moisture, mold, and indoor air quality issues arise, many times allowing building owners and operators to reduce the chance those problems ever occur. But if they do, the building owner is ready to act quickly, instead of wasting time and money figuring out what to do.


The book contains concepts and tools for planning on how to deal with moisture, mold and indoor air quality problems when they happen. It also contains tips, checklists, and other tools you can use to avoid moisture, mold, and indoor air quality problems.

Preventing Mold in New and Existing Buildings

Mold problems in buildings have gotten a lot of publicity for years now, and architects, engineers, contractors, and building owners have spent billions of dollars dealing with mold and moisture problems. Response efforts have been mainly reactive, many times brought about after someone gets sued.

This book presents architects, engineers, contractors, and building owners with concepts and tools for preventing mold and moisture problems during design – before initial construction even starts. This book also helps design team members and building owners plan renovations that avoid mold and moisture problems during renovations. This book contains concepts for making sure mold remediation is successful – and making sure the mold does not recur.

This book covers what mold is, and almost as importantly – what it’s not. We cover media hype, health effects of mold, mold litigation, investigating to find out what caused the mold in the first place, and making sure you avoid mold and moisture problems altogether. We also cover valuable sample data interpretation concepts, and ideas on how to educate employees and building occupants on the realities of what mold is, rather than Internet hype. You’ll see how to make sure your mold and moisture problem is a one time experience, instead of being stuck in a repetitive mold remediation nightmare.

How to Improve Test Scores Through Better Indoor Air Quality

Can indoor air quality affect test scores, teacher and student productivity, and performance? Yes!


This book gives school superintendents and facility managers tips on how to improve standardized test scores by improving indoor air quality in schools. Students, teachers, and staff members are more productive, perform better, and miss less time at school when indoor air quality is improved.

Indoor air quality may not seem to have an effect on test results and school performance, but studies have shown that poor indoor air quality has a negative impact on students, teachers, and school staff. As school systems seek innovative solutions to standardized test performance, improved indoor air quality and its effect on learning, productivity and improving test scores is often overlooked.


If you’re a school administrator, facility manager, or consultant working with school systems, this book is for you.
