Guidance for Addressing Mold Issues

While our Environmental Health department can address mold issues from a sanitation perspective in the facilities we inspect, such as restaurants and hotels, we do not have the authority to address mold issues in private residences, rental properties, etc. Here are resources that may be able to assist you in resolving mold issues in these types of structures below:

  • Private Residence
    • Read the Environmental Protection Agency’s “Mold Cleanup in Your Home” webpage.
  • Rental Property
    • Contact your landlord. If your landlord doesn’t respond to a request to address a mold issue, read Georgia Landlord Tenant Handbook (starting on page 10) for more information. For free or low-cost legal services, visit
