Faith:

C2C has some excellent info about identifying and addressing issues of mold in the Webinar Archives .  It is my limited understanding that active mold should be frozen (depending on the artifact), and inactive mold can possibly be vacuumed with a HEPA unit … professional advice  is available from the links below.  Hope this helps.
