Current Issues

Household Mold
The 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
  • Any room that moisture is allowed to build up

Excellent sources of information about household mold are available on the web at the Centers for Disease Control Mold website.
