Abstract
This guide is intended to discuss mold-related issues and to assist the industry in the delivery of clean, mold-free products to the marketplace. Mold continues to be undesirable on wood products and can cause rejection of shipments by the customers and economic losses to the industry. This report provides an historic perspective on mold, defines mold and discusses why it became a major issue in the marketplace and how this relates to wood products. The main factors required for mold growth and expansion are discussed, as are methods of limiting mold growth. The best method of mold control is moisture control, which includes initial drying and keeping wood products dry. Specifically we give best practice guidelines for controlling mold on logs, lumber, plywood/veneers, other composite panel products, wood chips/residues, and for wood products in service (buildings). Lumber is one of the key products of the wood industry and several specific guidelines in regard to mold control for lumber are available and covered in depth. This includes air-drying, kiln-drying, phytosanitary heat treatment, and chemical prophylactic treatment of green lumber. Some circumstances where control of moisture is not feasible will require either chemical treatments or water barriers to prevent mold growth. There is also a special section on lumber packaging and wrapping, and water repellents. Finally, the report reviews existing guidelines for mold cleaning and remediation.

Abstract
Pour différentes raisons, les moisissures représentent un défi constant lors de la production de bois résineux et feuillus : santé, environnement, qualité et stratégies de production. Elles sont aussi une préoccupation constante pour les consommateurs et à l’origine de réclamations qui peuvent être très coûteuses pour les producteurs. Un sondage en 2014 dans l’Est du Canada révélait qu’en moyenne les coûts annuels liés à la détérioration biologique étaient de 60 000 $ par usine. Dans le cas d’une usine intégrée, spécialisée en transformation primaire et secondaire de feuillus et résineux, ces coûts avaient atteint près de 475 000 $ pour cette même année. Ces coûts sont liés à un ensemble de facteurs : modification du procédé, perte de productivité, réclamations, pertes de ventes (Gignac, 2015). Plusieurs facteurs peuvent contribuer au développement de moisissures dont la teneur en humidité du bois, les conditions climatiques et la durabilité naturelle propre à l’essence de bois. Avec les années, FPInnovations a acquis beaucoup de connaissances, accumulé beaucoup d’information, de données et de savoir-faire à travers ses projets de recherche et son soutien technique à l’industrie. En combinaison avec d’autres données disponibles dans la communauté scientifique, nous proposons de résumer l’information pertinente pour l’industrie et de la présenter sous forme de document de vulgarisation. Ce document se veut un outil simple et pratique pour le personnel de l’industrie de la transformation du bois afin de les soutenir dans la prise de décision concernant les stratégies d’entreposage, de séchage à l’air, séchage au séchoir, gestion du bois sec et transport jusqu’à sa destination finale, le consommateur. Ce document de référence regroupe les connaissances générales en lien avec les problématiques de moisissures.

Abstract
The first paper, Understanding Biodeterioration of Wood in Structures, provides an overview of the subject matter and refers to a selection of textbooks for more detail. It provides some essential background on wood structure and composition, the range of wood-inhabiting organisms and their effects on wood. The colonisation sequence, the conditions required for decay, and the rates of growth and strength loss are covered in some detail. The second paper, Moisture Problems in Vancouver Condominiums reviews the background to the recent epidemic of decay problems in southwestern B.C. and Forintek's short-, medium- and long-term response. In the short term, Forintek has been assisting in the work of the Building Envelope Research Consortium (BERC) designed to understand and deal with these problems. In the medium term, we have developed a combination of safe low-level chemical treatments which will provide OSB with the same fungal resistance as Douglas-fir faced plywood. This paper also describes the long-term project Decision Aids for Durable Wood Construction.
