TB 26 Mould Prevention and Collection Recovery: Guidelines for Heritage Collections

Sherry Guild and Maureen MacDonald (revised by Tom Strang and Sherry Guild)

Mould infestation in heritage collections can damage objects and may pose a health risk to individuals who work with these collections. This Technical Bulletin presents information on mould morphology, prevention of mould growth, actions to take should mould occur and health effects relating to mould exposure. It informs the reader on how to remove mould growth from objects and it describes the appropriate personal protective equipment to wear when working in a mould-contaminated environment or when working with mould-infested objects.
