Starting at under $1,000, the two-part package consists of a proactive planning and training process designed to reduce or eliminate corporate risk and potential liability exposure. Increasingly, insurers are requiring policyholders to implement such a program before they will issue property damage or personal injury coverage for mold claims.
Each TMAP package begins with the development by BEM of a customized "Mold Action and Prevention Plan"--in effect, a "blueprint" to enable property owners, facility managers, and maintenance personnel to proactively and quickly respond to (or better, prevent) mold issues. The organization also receives a customized training module, based on the plan, which serves as a hands-on educational forum to those on the "front line" of preventing and/or responding to water leaks and infiltration in buildings and other facilities. Total cost for the program generally ranges from around $1,000 up, depending on the number, nature, and size of facilities and the number of personnel requiring training.
"Many clients who have used our toxic mold consulting and remediation services asked if we could develop a more cost-effective, yet customizable way to help them deal with toxic mold," said BEM president Mark Nardolillo.

By building on our five-plus years of high-exposure experience in this area, we can now offer a uniquely valuable, yet cost-effective service that will make this whole issue much more predictable and controllable."
"Our goal is to offer the 'best of both worlds,"' explains Sharon Stecker, BEM's director of client services. "We standardize parts of the process to keep client costs as low as possible, yet still have the flexibility to customize the program to address each client's specific needs. We have confidence these programs will really be effective because they are based on the wide experience of our Indoor Air Quality Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) deals with the content of interior air that could affect health and comfort of building occupants.
