Mold is fascinating, despite the fact that it can be destructive, unhealthy, and even sometimes deadly. In addition to gaining a basic understanding of mold and its effects, participants will learn how to reduce the likelihood of a mold infestation, how to recognize early warning signs of an infestation, necessary health and safety precautions, and recommendations for cleaning mold.
