My daughter in law dug up some Creeping Phlox from an old abandoned house. In among the phlox were these plants with yellow flowers. Can anybody tell me if this is a weed? It's pretty whatever it is. Thanks for your help.

This looks like some variety of spurge to me... probably wild. It's definitely NOT dandelion
or yarrow! I would remove it from the phlox and, if enough roots are present, try planting it in an isolated spot and observing it to see if you want to keep it. These hitchhikers can be a real pest if they get established in your garden, so be careful.
This is an example of just how bad mold can get in a very short period of time. Entire flooring system, sub-floors, main floor, tile must come out on entire lower level of home. This is a
real important issue. The poor client is not covered by insurance as most people are not.
Check your home owners insurance to see if you can add a rider just to cover yourself.
I will post progress photos as we move along the next six weeks.

This is definitely a replacement project, but for situations that are not this bad, I have had
great success with a product that kills and then inhibits regrowth of mold... was called ZymoCat and now called Moldzyme. It's available online if youcan't find a retailer. A non-toxic enzyme removes mold and discoloration, and keeps it from redeveloping.
