Mold & Moisture

Mold can cause health problems and trigger allergies and asthma attacks. With adequate moisture​, mold can grow anywhere in the home. It can also be controlled, making the air easier for all to breathe.  The Healthy Homes Coalition helps families understand mold problems and access the resources needed to make repairs.
