Mold cleanup underway at American University dorm

American University students complain mold in freshman dorm is making them sick (Student Submission)

ABC7’s Richard Reeve has the latest on the mold infestation at an American University dorm that he reported on last week.

The mold was making some students sick with flu-like symptoms, but the university now says a cleanup is underway.

It's now believed the mold came from condensation on heating and cooling pipes that turned into mold spores.
