After the flood, the mold lingers


We’re still seeing the effects of last years floods, not just in the homes where the flooding occurred, but also in the people who live in those houses. Mold presents a set of symptoms which are often misdiagnosed. Like coughing.

Though parasitic fungi such as Athlete’s foot are readily diagnosed, easy to catch, difficult to control.

Bleach works for getting rid of surface mold, but it is helpless against hidden mold, mold in the walls, or in crawl spaces. Fanning without filtration just stirs it up and makes it worse. Apart from the mycotoxins, it doesn’t matter to our lungs if a spore is alive or dead when it is the spore itself that is the irritant.
