What to do about mold in your home?

The City of Maplewood does not investigate mold complaints. We are not trained in mold identification, we are not mold experts, nor do we have the ability to test for mold. We follow the Minnesota Department of Health’s guidelines in that if you believe you have a mold problem, treat it as a mold problem. Do not test for mold. Rather, investigate what the problem is (where did the moisture come from), remove the wet material, and then remediate the problem.

There is no acceptable or minimum standard for mold as mold affects everyone differently.
