Report: Black Mold Found at Governor's Mansion
DES MOINES, Iowa - Gov. Terry Branstad told the Hawkeye newspaper that he has moved out of Terrace Hill after the discovery of black mold.
Branstad told the Hawkeye that his family relocated last Saturday after mold was found on the third floor of the governor's residence in Des Moines.
The Hawkeye reported that Branstad said his wife had not been feeling well for about the past month. An investigator discovered the black mold.
Branstad told the newspaper he wasn't sure how long the cleanup would take.
Black mold can cause poor indoor air quality that is associated with chronic fatigue symptoms, headaches, fever, sneezing, rashes and chronic coughing. It most commonly forms due to water damage.
Terrace Hill was originally built in 1869.
