The Environmental Health Department responds to environmental, safety, or health incidents to provide support, education, and resources. Services are offered for natural and built environments such as homes and businesses based on need.
For information about food safety in licensed establishments and in the home, as well as up-to-date recall information for food products, visit the Food Safety website.
The solution to controlling mold is moisture control
If residents cannot find the moisture source, it is recommended to have a professional home inspection. Because most moisture issues are a result of a structural or plumbing problem, the health department will not investigate mold complaints
Testing for mold is not recommended. Regulatory or health-based standards for human exposure to mold do not exist.
