IAQ/MOLD LL #55 of NYC: Pay attention to this law and its compliance requirements - by Lee Wasserman

We only have months before Local Law #55 of the City of New York, known as NYC Indoor Asthma and Allergen Hazards and Pest management in Residential Buildings Law becomes effective and enforceable, so survey your properties today and prior to 1/18/19 to address all current moisture intrusion and mold discolorations. Since mold is an ever changing natural occurrence and since moisture events can happen at any given time, a diligent and properly implemented moisture intrusion/mold operations and maintenance plan will prove invaluable and may be a major money saver once this New York City law takes effect early next year.
