Mold in Buildings

Mold is a common problem in buildings that affects human health and can also damage or destroy building materials. Because mold requires water to grow, controlling mold requires a thorough understanding of how water enters and travels (or doesn’t) through buildings. Because mold also requires a food source, controlling it also requires an understanding of which building materials are susceptible to mold and how best to use and protect them.

The following documents address these key issues of water movement and mold-susceptibility. They also discuss important topics such as health effects, mold testing, and what to do when mold is found.
