Questions and Answers on Molds and Mold Remediation
Currently, there are no published exposure limits for mold. However, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA - www.epa.gov) and the New York City Department of Health (NYCDOH – www.epa.gov) have published recommendations on selecting respirators for mold remediation activities based upon the size of the contaminated area

  • For areas less than 10 square feet, filtering facepiece respirators (N95 disposable respirators) or half masks with replaceable particulate filters may be used in conjunction with non-vented goggles.
  • For areas between 10 and 100 square feet, either a half mask with non-vented face goggles, or full facepiece respirators with 100 level particulate filters should be used.
  • For areas greater than 100 square feet, full facepiece respirators with 100 level particle filters should be used. The full facepiece may also be used as part of a powered air purifying respirator (PAPR) system.
