The Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) is presenting the webinar, "Was this HVAC System Impacted by Fire Particulate?" on July 20 at 1:00 p.m. EDT. The webinar discusses the use and application of the new Indoor Environmental Standards Organization (IESO) and Restoration Industry Association (RIA) Standard 6001. This new American National Standard Institute (ANSI) approved standard, IESO-RIA Standard 6001, describes the standardized protocol for determining if an HVAC system has been affected by fire.

During this webinar, restoration contractors, air duct cleaners, IAQ consultants and insurance industry professionals will learn about the new ANSI Standard; specifically, how and where to take a surface sample in an HVAC system and test for fire residue indicators, such as char and soot. It will discuss when and where the new ANSI- approved standard should be applied in both commercial and residential buildings. Attendees of this webinar will be well-versed on the logistics of the new standard, and know when and how to apply it

The webinar's presenter will be Daniel Greenblatt, CMH, president of EnviroTech Clean Air Inc.

The webinar costs $25 for IAQA members and $40 for non-members. To sign up for the webinar, applicants must be registered on IAQA's website. If you are not registered on IAQA's website, or to attain more information, visit
