Abstract: Mold is an ongoing problem for Army installations and contingency basing locations. This work was undertaken to demonstrate the effectiveness of a two-step dry-fog mold remediation process technology to remove mold spores and provide long-term mold prevention in two buildings at Fort Campbell, KY. Treating each test building took 5 to 6 hours and included: mobilization, air and surface sampling before and after the application, and demobilization. This work concluded that the dry-fog technology provides rapid and quantifiable improvements to indoor air quality, and reduces exposure of personnel to harmful chemicals resulting from current mold remediation practices. Results indicated that the dry-fog technology could potentially support mold remediation needs resulting from indoor air quality maintenance and from natural hazards. Current rough estimates for application of the dry-fog technology are approximately $1.00/sq ft. Early project results were shared with Region IV of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Huntington District of the U.S. Army’s Corps of Engineers.
