The housing regulations do not cover mold problems within a residence. The State of Ohio does not have any laws or standards set for mold. The health district has a packet of information for mold and mold issues that is available upon request. The web link below for the Regional Air Pollution Control Agency (RAPCA) has information that can assist residents to control and eliminate mold within their homes.
The housing regulations do not cover bed bug problems within a residence. The web link below for the Ohio Department of Health has information concerning bed bugs.
