We had this problem a couple years back in our walk-in cold rooms and
the recommendation was to thoroughly clean the room, including walls
and floor, with Dreft detergent. Also no paper/cardboard storage boxes
are kept at 4° - plastic only.
Good luck with the clean-up!

we have a problem with mold and its spores in our 4°C room. It was used
as a storage room for several kinds of mold (in unwrapped/unsealed
petri dishes) in the last few years while the former department was
studying it. Now, this research has been discontinued and we are trying
to use it as a "standard" cold room for storage of molecular biology
reagents, protein purification purposes and so on. However, you can
still smell the mold, and LB agar plates show signs of mold shortly
after they have been put there.
Does anybody know how to decontaminate it thoroughly? Or at least an
idea how to do it?
Thank you very much in advance!
