The license to provide mold remediation services is different from the MHIC license for a contractor, subcontractor, or salesperson. This law was scheduled to take effect on July 1, 2013. However, due to budget constraints, the DLLR has postponed the implementation of the Maryland Mold Remediation Services Act indefinitely.
Therefore, until the Mold Remediation Services Act is implemented, a mold remediation contractor who only performs "demolition" or "cleaning" type services (such as cleaning ventilation systems or applying chemicals to kill mold), would not be required to obtain a license from MHIC. However, any mold remediation contractor who performs structural renovations to a house in the course of a mold remediation project is required to hold a MHIC contractor license.
