A current financial statement indicating a net worth of at least $1 million must accompany the affidavit. A new affidavit and current financial statement must be submitted with each renewal application.
Governmental entities that are self-insured are not required to purchase this insurance.
A mold assessment company must have at least one licensed mold assessment consultant to act as the company’s responsible person.
A mold remediation company must have at least one licensed mold remediation contractor to act as the company’s responsible person.
