What type of respirator do you need for mold?

If there is mold in your home (or you suspect that mold growth has occurred), protect your mouth and nose against breathing in mold by wearing at least a disposable, NIOSH-approved N-95 filtering facepiece respirator (often called an “N-95 respirator” or “N-95 mask”).

Does P100 protect against mold?

For the filters, we want to use a HEPA rated filter. The terminology used in respirators means you should look for either P100 or N100 ratings. This is the best (most efficient) filter offered for use on respirators, and will very effectively trap mold spores.

Do face masks protect against mold?

Surgical masks do not protect against breathing in very small particles such as dust or mold because they do not fit tightly to the face, allowing air particles to leak in around the edge of the mask.

Which is the best face respirator for mold?

It also provides a better seal so it is almost impossible for the wearer to breathe in even a single spore.
