It is important to note that Florida Statutes do not require mold cleanup and/or removal.
Poor indoor air quality can be linked to a variety of respiratory ailments. The Florida Department of Health does not have mold or indoor air quality (IAQ) regulatory authority. In addition, Florida Department of Health does not recommend mold testing or sampling to see if you have a mold problem, or to see what kind of mold might be growing. All indoor mold growth should be removed, regardless of type. The primary function of the Florida Department of Health in Orange County, Indoor Air Quality Program is to provide advice and expertise relating to indoor air quality concerns. For more information on indoor air quality and mold, see resources listed below. If you still have questions or concerns, or to schedule an indoor air quality assessment, please contact our office at 407-858-1497
Indoor Air Quality assessment fee is $57.00.
