News Release
OWATONNA, Minn. -- If your home was affected in the recent flooding it could be harboring mold. “Mold is a significant problem after flooding and proper cleanup is critical to ensure it doesn’t affect your or your family’s health,” Kathy Norlien, environmental research scientist at the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), said. “Anything that's been in contact with flood water is potentially contaminated, and people need to proceed on that assumption. It's important to clean potentially contaminated materials — and get them dried out — as quickly as possible."
