CHICAGO (March 17, 2003) – A publication to help educate consumers about why mold develops in the home and what to do about it is being offered by the National Association of Realtors .

“A Guide to Mold, Moisture and Your Home” is an information guide created by the Environmental Protection Agency and offered by NAR that contains recommendations for how to remove mold and prevent it from returning.

Targeted at real estate practitioners, consumers, and association executives, the guide focuses on raising awareness about mold, describes why mold grows in a home, and offers tips and techniques for cleaning up mold. The booklet recommends not only what a homeowner can do to clean up mold, but also when a professional might better handle cleanup.

The guide discusses testing for mold in the home, and reviews hidden mold and what to do about it if it’s located. It also provides recommendations on controlling moisture in the home and how to prevent further mold damage.

The guide is available now. For NAR members, prices are as follows: for 1-10 copies, $4 each; for 11-99 copies, $3 each; and for 100 or more, $2 each. For non-members: 1-10 copies, $6 each; 11-99, $5 each; and 100 or more, $4 each.
