Owner of ServiceMaster By Glenn’s, Keith Grella Renews BOTH Florida State Mold Assessor and Remediator Licenses


Current mold remediator and assessor certifications ensure individuals follow industry best practices.

Vero Beach, FL – Did you know only 14 Mold Remediators and 15 Mold Assessors have current and active licenses in Indian River County? The state of Florida requires remediators and assessors to complete 15 hours of training every two years to keep certifications current and active.  When restoring a home or business after a disaster, choosing a Florida state-certified Mold Remediator or Mold Assessor is crucial to the success of a restoration project. This certification ensures the professional is trained in choosing the correct materials, equipment, and methodology to ensure that water damage, fire damage, or mold damage restoration will be successful and free of future mold-related issues.  


Keith Grella, owner of ServiceMaster By Glenn’s, completed his Mold Remediator and Mold Assessor licenses in February with a perfect score of 100% well before the July 31, 2020 deadline. This ensures he is up to date with the best practices and follows regulatory guidelines in the restoration of mold, water, fire, or smoke damage.

The 14 hours of continuing education to renew both mold assessor and remediator licenses included training and review of the following material:

  • 6-hour review of water moisture intrusion
  • 4-hour review of the importance of mold safety
  • 2-hour review of instruction in writing reports
  • 2-hour review of Florida’s state standards and practices

ServiceMaster By Glenn’s, Keith Grella, recently renewed both his Florida State Mold Assessor and Remediator Licenses.

"Staying certified and current in this industry is a must,” said Grella, an expert remediator with 26 years of experience. “Here at ServiceMaster By Glenn's, we make sure all of our restoration technicians are certified and well-trained to provide the best approach and management of disaster restoration projects for our customers."

Since the state of Florida tightened the requirements on mold treatment and removal in 2010, the number of certified Mold Assessors and Mold Remediators in the county has only decreased. Before a consumer engages a restoration company to perform water, mold, fire, or smoke damage restoration, make sure to visit to ensure the company is certified.
