After the rain, beware the rise of stachybotrys mold which may be reflected in running noses, sneezing, memory loss, problems with bleeding lungs, bleeding noses and other horrifying symptoms of exposure. Mold can be a very dangerous allergen; and it likes to grow the same places you do, and all it needs is a little moisture to get a foot in the door.
Before remediation, have your local mold inspector run tests on your house so you have a set point for your before and after. If it’s not bad enough for remediation, bleach solutions will kill mold on hard surfaces. Soft goods infiltrated by mold should be thrown away.
