ANSI, GREENGUARD Issue Mold Standard

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

Comment | More

The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute and the American National Standards Institute have released a new Mold and Moisture Management Standard for New Construction.

The standard (ANSI / GEI - MMS1001) is the first to focus solely on mold and moisture issues that can arise in the construction of new buildings. Moisture—and in turn mold—can ruin indoor environmental quality, compromise building materials and building systems, and cost thousands of dollars to fix. Preventing these risks protect financial investments while preserving the structural integrity and air quality of the building. The standard details design, construction and maintenance practices for preventing the harmful growth of mold.

"We are very excited to bring such a valuable resource to the building industry," said GEI executive director Henning Bloech. "With mold and moisture issues negatively impacting so many buildings and building occupants, we recognized a need for a consensus-developed standard to address this devastating problem.”

The standard was developed by a Consensus Board comprised of professionals from diverse backgrounds including architecture, academia, commercial construction, finance, law, insurance, engineering, home building and building science professions. The group first met on March 13, 2007. 

An electronic or hard copy version of the standard is available for purchase at http://www.greenguard.org/Default.aspx?tabid=115.
