PMID:  15238325     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
An exhaustive search of the literature on the growth of mold on fiberglass insulation materials was conducted. Because of the paucity of published material, both peer-reviewed and non-peer-reviewed articles were included. The literature indicates that fiberglass can serve as a support matrix for the collection of debris which, when moist, have the capability of supporting the growth of mold. Further, binding and paper-based moisture barriers from fiberglass resins are also capable of supporting the growth of mold when moist.
