  • Any building materials that have visible mold are removed (floor, wall, ceiling, tile or trim materials)
  • Wet or damp carpeting or carpet padding is removed that has been continuously wet or wet multiple times
  • Building materials are removed without setting up a plastic bubble or area to contain the mold
