Preventing mold transfer.

Help me prevent transferring mold to new photo albums.

I've just discoverd that some of my old photo albums have mold on the inside of the covers. There doesn't seem to be any on the pictures themselves. We no longer live in the house that promoted the mold growth, and I am going to transfer all the photos into new albums.

How can I make sure that the pictures will be ok? Is there a danger of transferring the mold to the new albums? If so, how can I help to prevent it?

Wipe down the photos with mold on them with a very slightly damp piece of cloth, if they are glossy. If they are not glossy see a professional. Buy some silica gel sachets and store your photos along with those.
