I see visible mold in my work space what should I do?

Any visible mold should be removed using soap and water as soon as it is found. Small areas (i.e. smaller than a ceiling tile) can be handled safely by staff.  For guidance on cleaning up mold please consult the EPA fact sheet or the VDH fact sheet.  

Contact Work Management at 231-4300 to request assistance with cleaning up large areas of mold or to get wet or molded ceiling tiles replaced.

 I am not sure that what I am seeing is mold, how can I find out?

Contact Sarah Owen at 231-4034 or sowen@vt.edu for an IAQ consult.
