Certified Environmental Mold Remediator FAQ’s

What is a CEMR?

A CEMR is the Certified Environmental Mold Remediator. The 2 day CEMR course is approved by NAMM. The purpose of this course is to educate remediators about the proper way to remediate mold using Bioremediation techniques

What is Bioremediation

Simply put, it is using nature against nature. Bioremediation can be defined as any process that uses microorganisms, fungi, green plants or their enzymes to return the natural environment altered by contaminants to its original condition. – Wikipedia

Why is Bioremediation better than traditional remediation?

A lot of remediation practices involve using toxic chemicals to eliminate mold. At NAMM, we don’t believe that using toxins to get rid of toxins is the best solution. In Bioremediation, using a non-toxic, all natural products to eliminate mold is safer for pets, plants, the clients and the applicators. Bioremediation, when performed properly, can also be faster, cheaper and more effective than traditional remediation. It is important to note that not all remediation companies use toxins to eliminate mold.

If I choose to go with a Bioremediation company, what should I be looking for?

Just like traditional remediation, all companies are not created equally. It is important to ask for references from any remediation company. A top quality company should also provide a warranty and guarantee their work. Please look at our recommendations for Bioremediation Page for more information.
