Mold & Indoor Air Quality
Mold can be destructive to people’s home, health and belongings. Oregon’s damp, mild climate contributes to mold growth in indoor environments. Research has found that the quality of air in homes can be poorer than that of the outdoors.
- In children, asthma is on the rise. Indoor air pollutants, including mold, trigger asthma and allergies.
- Mold, and the moisture that allows it to grow, is highly destructive to homes, buildings, and possessions. The presence of mold can make homes uninhabitable and unable to be sold without remediation.
