Mold Questions & Answers

Q. Eeck!  How worried should I be if the mold found in a wet crawlspace is white and foamy (kind of like watered down shaving cream or crazy foam)? I know I will have to note it when selling the home, but do not know if this type of mold is a killer mold or just a keep the water out of the crawl space and it will go away mold. Can you help? I am supposed to close on the house in a few days ( we just found out yesterday during the inspection about the mold).

A. Your answer is to hire a local attorney to resist the landlord's collection efforts. Ask your lawyer about making claims against the landlord for his selling/leasing you a mold-contaminated property---return of your monies paid, health testing, mold decontamination of all of your personal property, moving expenses, etc., whatever your lawyer recommends.

Q. My dog was very sick and had a temp. of almost 106. She was in the vet for a week and the vets couldn't figure out what it was-they tested for everything. To make a long story short-they suspected some type of fungi. They took a urine sample and after several weeks learned that what she has is Alternaria species mold).  They said it's an uncommon fungus and they don't know much about it. We have a puppy and are afraid that he will eventually get it as well.  We had a dog that was only 5 that died and they didn't really know why (something affected his pancreas). Have you heard of this and were does it come from to prevent it?

A. Alternaria is an unhealthy but commonly-found mold in many homes and work places. Often small mammal house pets are the first to suffer from living in mold infestation. You need to thoroughly inspect and mold test your home including testing the air of each room, attic, basement, crawl space and the outward air flow each heating/cooling duct for the possible presence of elevated levels of airborne mold spores, in comparison to an outdoor mold control test. You can use do it yourself mold test kits from a large hardware or home improvement store.
