A common problem for families dealing with mold is the ability of the home to control the growth of the mold, according to a new study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene.
The study looked at the health effects of controlling mold in an apartment in an Oklahoma City suburb and found that controlling mold caused mild illness but had no significant negative effects.
The study looked more at mold growth in apartments in the Oklahoma City area compared to other regions, and found the average time between mold and illness was 1.5 years, the study said.
Mold is the cause of the most serious health problems in the United States, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
It is also a leading cause of death.
The Oklahoma City study was conducted by the Centers of Disease Control, the National Institutes of Health, the Oklahoma State Department of Health and was funded by the National Science Foundation.
