Indoor Flood Cleanup and Mold Remediation

The purpose of this SOP is to outline proper methods for cleanup and disposal following an indoor water release (flood), which may result in damaged building materials. The prompt cleanup of water is necessary to minimize property loss and prevent microbial growth. This SOP also details proper methods for mold remediation if cleaning and drying was not successful or if mold is identified during initial inspection. It is also essential to identify and eliminate the source of moisture that has contributed to the water damage or mold growth as part of the remediation process.

LS-2: Template for Laser Standard Operating Procedure

These guidelines are intended to aid PIs and individual laser users in preparing standard operating procedures (SOPs) for lasers and laser systems. The information should be used as a guide to allow you to develop a SOP that is specific to your laser system. The SOP should include all lasers in a given laser system including alignment and pumping lasers.
