      I have some items that have been isolated from the collection which may have mold on them. They are currently stored in a room separate from storage in plastic or plastic containers. I need to know what steps I can take to determine if mold is present. If  mold is present, then I need to know how to stabilize the pieces.

       

      Thanks

      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.
