Mold is not only a difficult topic, but it can also be an emotional one because there are plenty of urban myths circulating about ‘Toxic Black Mold’ and exaggerated stories about the ‘affects’ of mold on people and their pets.
Mold Doesn’t Have to be Confusing or a Mystery
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has produced an excellent publication titled, “A Brief Guide to Mold, Moisture, and Your Home.” The content describes hold mold contamination can be safely removed by a homeowner and when professional remediation assistance is advisable.
The information from the EPA also explains why moisture within a home will cause mold to colonize and grow. The remedies for solving the moisture problems and preventing future mold from returning are thoroughly described.
If you have mold or suspect there may be hidden microbial contamination within your home, or you simply wish to learn more about indoor mold, check out the Environmental Protection Agency website. The EPA guidebook is available as a printable Pdf or for reading online.
