1. What do I do if I suspect mold in my home?

There are currently no limits set by the EPA. Therefore mold is not regulated. Mold grows in moist environments, so eliminate sources of moisture and lower humidity. Fix leaking faucets and drains, caulk and seal windows and tubs, use dehumidifiers in humid rooms such as basements. After correcting the moisture problem, wipe down area with a bleach solution of 1 capful of bleach per 1 gallon of water.
