Aurora, Mo. — Officials with the Lawrence County Health Department Environmental Section hav recently had increased inquires concerning residential mold problems.

The Department of Health and Senior Service and the Lawrence County Health Departments do not test for mold at this time and do not maintain a list of mold testers, according to Alethea Goodman, director of the county department.

There are no Missouri or federal laws that set limits or standards as to what type or level of mold exposure or mold presence is healthy or unheatlthy or not allowed indoors.

Professionals should conduct sampling with specific experience in designing mold sampling protocols, sampling methods and interpretation of results.  Sample analysis should follow analytical methods recommended by the American Industrial Hygienist or other professional guidelines.

Goodman said the LCHD can provide only informational handhouts concerning mold or moisture control in the home.
