Recording of IAQradio+ Special ATP Use and Misuse Episode Available


CENTRAL PARK, PA—May 10, 2021—IAQradio+, the podcast and live-streaming program hosted by IAQ Training Institute President Joe Hughes and IDEAZ President Cliff Zlotnik, held a special ATP-focused episode Friday, May 7. Titled “ATP Use and Misuse in the Restoration Industry,” the episode featured listener-favorite Dr. Ralph E. “Bad Moon Rising” Moon.

Moon’s long-anticipated study on the use, interpretation, and viability of ATP use in the restoration and remediation sector was previewed in the episode. Zlotnik and Hughes interviewed and questioned Moon on his research and results in the unique IAQradio+ “case study” format.

The study was published in the CIRI peer reviewed CSQ Journal’s latest quarterly edition and illustrates the misuse of ATP technology by addressing common misunderstandings. The primary focus and goal of the study was to ensure that time and resources expended were commensurate to the useful application of the results for industry practitioners in the assessment, mitigation, restoration, and remediation disciplines.

Moon asked “industry historian” Pete Consigli to review and comment on the initial manuscript for restoration applicability before the document was scientifically peer reviewed. “This Restoration Global Watchdog highly recommends that frequent ATP users call in live this week as Cliff and Joe engage the audience with Q&A after Dr. Moon offers his conclusions of the study,” Consigli said. “There may be some ‘ah ha’ moments for even industry veterans and longtime users of ATP technology for project oversight and/or remediation verification criteria!”

During the Round-up segment of IAQradio+, CIRI Executive Director and CSQ publisher John Downey joined the show to comment on the peer review process and talk about some of the exciting initiatives CIRI has in the pipeline this year for the IAQ and restoration industries. In addition, Consigli joined the segment for his “Mob Consigliere” weigh in.

Watch the recording on YouTube or listen at Podbean.

IAQradio+ airs every Friday at noon Eastern and focuses on indoor air quality, the built environment and disaster restoration issues. For more information, visit
