APPENDIX E: MASTER VERIFICATION CHECKLIST United States Environmental Protection Agency Indoor Air Quality Guidelines for Multifamily Building Upgrades Note: This Verification Checklist is to be used in conjunction with the assessment protocols and recommended actions in Section 2 of Energy Savings Plus Health: Indoor Air Quality Guidelines for Multifamily Building Upgrades. Building Identification: City/State/Zip: Date: 1.0 Moisture Control and Mold Assessment Protocol and Action Verification Complete N/A NOTES AP 1.1 Inspected the interior and exterior of the building and the building's mechanical systems for evidence of moisture problems, and documented the results. AP 1.2 Determined whether the project requires mold remediation or additional moisture control measures based on the findings of the moisture inspection described in Assessment Protocol (AP) 1.1. AP 1.3 Identified moisture problems to address/repair before building upgrades. AP 1.4 Assessed for moisture or mold problems that cannot be resolved under the building upgrade project. Did not start construction projects that would reduce the building's air infiltration rate if there are unresolved moisture problems. MA 1.1 Repaired moisture problems identified during the assessment including plumbing leaks, rain leaks and foundation leaks. MA 1.2 Conducted mold remediation following professional guidance, such as EPA's Mold Remediation In Schools and Commercial Buildings and Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) Mold Remediation Standard S520. MA 1.3 Addressed standing water problems. Corrected surface water pooling near the foundation before insulating basement or crawlspace walls. MA 1.4 Managed rainwater in assemblies included within the scope of work (e.g., drainage planes and flashings). Ensured there is adequate slope and drainage away from the building. MA 1.5 Ensured proper heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) condensate drainage. MA 1.6 Prevented condensation in the building by air sealing the enclosure, managing water vapor flow, managing air pressure relationships, ensuring all piping and valves with condensation potential are adequately insulated, and controlling indoor humidity sources. MA 1.7 Properly sized HVAC systems to manage moisture inside the building. Installed supplemental dehumidification equipment if needed to avoid indoor moisture problems.
