Logan County Health District receives many requests to
test mold in houses to see if it is a health risk.
The fact is that any mold can be a health risk to
persons depending on their susceptibility. So any
mold is bad mold. Molds should be considered signs
of ventilation and moisture problems. The source
of the problem should be identified and repaired.
Some examples of moisture and ventilation problems
are: Insufficiently ventilated basements, crawl
spaces, bathrooms, and any room that moisture is allowed
to build up.
