Military OneSource Podcast — Moving: Mold Management
Listen and subscribe on your favorite platforms:

Mold is a natural part of the environment but can be a large concern during the moving process. A contaminated personal property shipment can spread mold to other cargo and personal property shipments in a trailer, warehouse, or a ship, as well as into a service member’s new home. It’s important to take immediate steps to mitigate and remediate mold as soon as it’s discovered.

Learn about steps for identifying and managing mold at the three stages of your move — at pickup, during transit, and at delivery. Find out how to handle claims for essential and nonessential items, and where to find more information on mold management, including a mold fact sheet.
