Surveying Objects on the Presence of Moulds and the Removal of Moulds from Objects

Landschap Erfgoed Utrecht owns a provincial bunker in Willeskop near Montfoort where smaller museums and related organizations were offered the opportunity to rent a space for the purpose of stocking their collections. After an outbreak of mould in one of the bunker’s spaces, a survey was done on all of the objects that were being stored inside that particular space. Everything was checked for the possible presence of mould. Any mould that was found was removed, the infected objects were professionally cleaned, and the area was disinfected.
