Mold Questions & Answers
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. You may also want to visit:

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?
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.
