I have mold in my apartment and my landlord won’t do anything about it. What are my options?
There are no local, state, or federal regulations regarding mold. Consequently, Tri-County Health Department staff can’t force your landlord to clean up the mold. We can only send a letter to the landlord which explains the potential adverse health effects associated with mold exposure and recommend the landlord clean up the mold. We’ll need the landlord’s name and address, your address, as well as the locations of the mold in the apartment. Contact your local Tri-County Environmental Health office.


Note: Tri-County Health Department cannot provide legal services. For further legal questions you can contact Colorado Legal Services at 303-837-1313.
