Officials are testing air quality and working to improve the HVAC system of a government building in Crownsville after elevated mold spore levels were found in parts of the building in July 2017.

A meeting was held this week at 100 Community Place in Crownsville, which houses 400 employees and 13 state agencies, to talk about work to address humidity levels in the building, as well as security and housekeeping, Department of General Services spokesman Nick Cavey said in an email.

One employee raised a concern about mold in a specific room in July 2017, he said, and an assessment two weeks later found “elevated spore levels in specific areas” of the building.

Cavey said the department removed and replaced drywall and carpet in affected offices.

The department is also and making repairs to the outside of the building, Cavey said.

“DGS takes the safety and well-being of its occupants and visitors very seriously,” Cavey said.
