Oregonians spend the majority of their time indoors. Research has found that the quality of air in homes can be poorer than that of the outdoors. Oregon’s damp, mild climate contributes to mold growth in indoor environments. Mold can be destructive to people’s home, health and belongings.
OSU Extension Service also coordinates occasional educational workshops on mold control. If you contact our office, we will notify you when the next one is scheduled.
