5 CDC Resources On How To Combat Mold

CDC Reacts to Mold

The CDC wants you to know how to combat mold. It’s well documented that mold can lead to serious health concerns, with the CDC confirming that mold can cause fungal allergies, respiratory infections, and worsen certain illnesses such as asthma. Molds are all around us, but when they begin to grow in your home, they can become a serious health risk.

Below is a basic outline by the CDC about mold and their program for prevention.

  1. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Web site http://www.cdc.gov/mold/) provides information about mold and health and links to mold-related resources.
  2. In cooperation with the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists, CDC created an inventory of state-level indoor-air-quality programs, which is available at http://www.cdc.gov/nceh/airpollution/indoor_air.htm.
  3. CDC assists states in responding to mold-related issues, by offering technical assistance with assessments, cleanups, and preventing mold growth and exposures.
  4. CDC engaged the Institute of Medicine to conduct a study on the relation between damp or moldy indoor environments and the manifestation of adverse health effects, and to provide recommendations for future research. The report is available at  http://www.nap.edu/books/0309091934/html/http://www.cdc.gov/Other/disclaimer.html.
  5. CDC is working with other federal agencies to conduct program, outreach, and educational activities to promote healthy indoor environments. CDC worked with other federal agencies to plan and conduct a Surgeon General’s Workshop on Healthy Indoor Environments to improve the understanding of the public health consequences of indoor environmental factors and to provide guidance to the Surgeon General and the public health community in promoting public health in those settings.
