Protecting building inhabitants during mold remediation requires the use of barriers, containments and personal
protective equipment. The more mold that is present within the structure, the more likely it is that building occupants
have or will be exposed to it.


Isolation of contaminated areas from clean areas is crucial when trying to control the spread of mold spores. Isolationof the contaminated area(s) can be achieved by covering a moldy surface with self-adhering plastic or by erecting
physical barriers with plastic sheeting to separate affected areas from unaffected areas. Isolation and containment
through the use of critical barriers greatly improves control over the work environment and lowers the risk of
cross-contamination to other parts of the building.
Isolation barriers are usually constructed of plastic sheeting. Heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) registers,
and building openings and fixtures in the remediation area also should be sealed off to prevent cross-contamination.


Personal protective equipment (PPE) refers to safety items designed to prevent exposure to potential hazards.
Examples include: respirators, gloves, goggles, protective clothing and boots.
Appropriate respiratory protection or other personal protective equipment must be used in conjunction with isolation
barriers and other engineering controls to protect workers. When visible or suspected mold growth is present or
potentially disturbed, containment along with personal protective equipment should be considered for respiratory
