Toxic mold feeds on cellulose in plaster wallboard and anywhere else it can find it.

One of the better known molds is Stachybotrys, which excretes mycotoxins that endanger everyone. It is worse than many other molds because many molds do not create their own poisons. Non-poisonous molds only bother people who have developed an allergy. However, one of the things that gives people allergies is extreme exposure. So what may feel like “immunity” to non-toxic mold can actually become a sort of incubation period, during which a person can develop allergies. Your standard molds present a danger to anyone especially vulnerable, such as children, the elderly, individuals with otherwise compromised immune systems, those who are already ill, etc. And of course, molds like Stachybotrys which creates an actual poison called a mycotoxin, are dangerous to everyone, allergic or not.

We suppose that the people of Cotuit must be true rebels. They are electing to keep their mold-contaminated Freedom Hall for December festivities in spite of reports of mold in the basement that was creeping up the stairway to the main floor.

I guess freedom also means you are free to get sick and expose your townsfolk and constituency to substances the government has declared are toxic.

Merry Christmas Cotuit. See you in the New Year. In the hospital.

Lincoln Military Housing
Forty Families complain about to NewsChannel3 about the mold infiltrating their homes in Lincoln Housing Virginia Beach after airing a story on the mold found in an off-base military home. The resident lives in property formerly owned by the Navy, now owned and operated by Lincoln Military Housing. The mold in the bathroom and master bedroom has been reported to managers eight times to no avail, and now Shelley Federico is suffering sinus infections, ear infections, and upper respiratory infections. When contractors cut open her wall, she had a violent reaction. Inaction from the managers led to Federico hiring a mold inspector who found high levels of four types of mold. A remediation expert voiced his opinion that Lincoln violated standards of care in Federico’s case.

Little surprise that Hawaiian properties can have mold issues.

It’s surrounded by water, after all.

There’s even mold at the Hawaii Convention Center.

There are leaks from tile and grout leading to drywall that is holding moisture, and, according to Jennifer Nakayama, Honolulu Convention Center Director of Operations,”…therefore, mold started to grow in the adjacent pump room.”

Pacific Enterprises Hawaii is investigating. Pacific Enterprises Hawaii is the certified mold inspector who discovered lots and lots of mold.

But fortunately the drywall is so wet, the mold has not gotten airborne.

NEW IPSWICH building two is slated to have its temperature turned up. The temperature is part of the plan to handle/control mold. The inspector warned that mold can grow in heat or cold, and only needs humidity. The temperature is a preventative measure against a burst pipe.

Experts are recommending 90 percent of the building be remediated. Building No. 2’s renovations have cost the town $33,000 of the building’s $226,500 remediation budget. The town is looking at determining how water-safe the concrete block structureed building is, how well it repels moisture from the outside.

Even before the full detail of debts and liabilities has been filed, the former owner of the Rancho Cordova apartment complex files for bankruptcy.

80 tenants filed suit against the former owners due to toxic mold infestations, broken doors, inoperable heating and cooling units and insects.

The company is seeking Chapter 11 reorganization.

Temperature control—i.e. keeping temperatures low at 60 degrees—is not the healthiest way to keep down mold.

Emily C. Watkins Elementary School in LaPlace is keeping the thermostat at 60 to reduce humidity.

Reduced humidity does help prevent mold, but the temperature is a problem. And it takes more than temperature to control mold. The location of the mold should be located; it should be isolated and removed.

The HVAC unit is currently spreading mold spores throughout the school. The surface mildew that has been discussed in local meetings may only be part of the problem. The school should certainly be professionally inspected, especially as parents indicate there are students who are coming home from school sick, and developing allergies due to the mold. The fact that they have set a timeline pushing repairs into next year is unfortunate, because it addresses the health of all of the students, teachers and other workers and support staff of Emily C. Watkins Elementary as if it were a matter of insignificance rather than a priority.

Another public services building will be shut down for a week as mold is dealt with, but it’s not a holiday for 23 Roseville State Department of Motor Vehicles employees, who will just be working in alternate offices (Rocklin, Carmichael and Folsom) until the problem is fixed.

The cleaning process is projected to take a week. The process began when a moldy odor was detected, and followed up with testing revealing stachybotrys.

Experts tracked down the location of the mold, which hopefully a week from now will be completely eradicated.
