Mold Safety

Molds are the most common forms of fungi that can be found inside or outside. It is impossible to eliminate all molds in an indoor environment. Moisture control can help reduce indoor mold growth.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) use guides to help reduce injuries due to mold.
