Clean-up procedures for mold in houses: NH15-91/2003E-PDF

"Since biblical times, indoor mold growth has been thought to affect the health of those living in a moldy dwelling. Today we are increasingly aware of the link between our environment and our health and well-being. Working with the provinces and territories, Health Canada first provided guidelines stating the need to minimize exposure to fungi and molds in residences in 1987. More specific guidelines for the non-industrial workplace were published in 1993, 1995 and, most recently, in 2004. The purpose of this guide is to help homeowners to respond to advice from Health Canada and other health departments in Canada to prevent and, if detected, remove mold growth indoors. It describes a process for dealing with mold in houses and provides detailed guidance both on how to eliminate indoor mold safely and on how to prevent the conditions that allow it to grow."--Introduction.
