New Regulations Implemented for Mold Remediation in Kentucky

Some new regulations for mold remediation companies are being  implemented in Kentucky. The changes, which were announced by Attorney General Jack Conway Friday morning in Frankfort, are part of a law designed to improve consumer protection in the state.

A written mold assessment and remediation plan must now be given to a customer before entering into a contract. That plan will now have to state how the source of moisture causing the mold will be remedied or managed.

Attorney General Conway says that approach is needed so consumers can be sure the source of the moisture will be corrected…..so mold problems don’t return.  The new regulations also state that a written contract is required before work on mold remediation can begin.  More information about the new regulations can be found at the website of the Kentucky Attorney General.
