Black Mold, in basement, & mold coming up in holes drilled in floors?
Thank you very much for your review!! ( home test kit-Pro Lab on Amazon, review) We are renting a home; water in the basement and concentrated humidity caused so much damage. All contents, including insulation on basement ceilings, had to be removed. Landlord/Owner bought this kit-checked in 48 hours; says "no mold growing in basement". I beg to differ. I've been on antibiotics on and off for 3 months. When he checked the initial test, he also placed another at the other end of the basement, 48 hrs ago now. That one is clear, But the first one placed there is now moldy. From what I have read there, 48 hours is not long enough for black mold to grow. So with this first one now moldy, we have worries. Our wooden floors had so many holes drilled into them from the former tenants, just completely outrageous for one home. Well, my husband filled in the holes this weekend. Upon doing so, with moving furniture around, We find that some of our furniture has mold growing on the backs and undersides. Okay, now what? I mentioned getting professionals in here to tackle the problem; he crinkled up his beer can, got into his truck and left. I guess we have to handle this ourselves. but how???
