Mold can stain artifacts and weaken paper, books, textiles, and proteinaceous materials such as leather. It can also cause health problems for staff and visitors. This half-day workshop will discuss how to identify mold, the environmental factors that allow mold to grow and thrive, and how to prevent an outbreak. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and procedures for handling the health risks of a mold outbreak will also be discussed. Attendees will learn best practices for cleaning moldy books and papers, as well as identifying when it’s necessary to call a conservator or a professional mold remediation company.
