Due to the damp conditions fostered by a tropical environment in Florida, mold growth may become an issue in some homes or apartments.  The Florida Department of Health in Monroe County is concerned with the effects of mold on human health, but has very limited jurisdiction and authority in these matters.

To address some of the most common questions and concerns about indoor mold, how it affects human health, and ways in which you can prevent or remove it, please visit the Florida Department of Health's website on mold.

A statement on "Building Dampness, Mold, and Health" (PDF, 682 KB) from the California Department of Public Health details our concerns and hopefully will increase your awareness of the adverse health effects of this hazardous condition.
