Do you have to leave a Moldy Trailer?

From the archive of ByebyeMold

Question IF MOLD IN YOUR HOME HAS NOT BEEN REMOVED,& YOU’RE CONSTANTLY GETTING SICK,DOES THAT ALSO MEAN CLOTHING & PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING IN THE TRAILER IS CONTAMINATED? IF YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO REMOVE THE MOLD,DO YOU BASICALLY HAVE TO LEAVE YOUR HOME?
There’s not a quick answer for that, without seeing or testing it.

Trailers can be an iffy proposition. It could be decomposing formaldehyde, other trapped chemicals, or mold.

If there is some kind of trapped off-gas output, it won’t affect laundry. If it is mold, that is not literally IN the clothes, the clothes might be salvageable, if well laundered, and thoroughly dried in a hot dryer. OF course if the clothes themselves are molding, or there is a massive infestation, clothes are soft goods which when they are contaminated are beyond recovery.

If your mold tester or health department examines this property and suggests the goods be disposed of, make sure you document this, because that is a tangible damage–if there is someone who can be found responsible for it.

If you’re in California, you might want to give us a call and see about getting an assessment from Byebyemold.
