An unsanitary living condition may exist if one of the following conditions is met:
A home may be dirty or untidy but may not be considered a health nuisance. Dirty or stained carpet, clothing on the floor, a small amount of animal feces, dirty dishes in the sink, and/or a dirty refrigerator may not necessarily create a health nuisance. Odors inside a home that cannot be detected outside the home are not a health nuisance.
If a home has unsanitary living conditions and children live there, you should also contact Children’s Protective Services.
