Q & A


   Q.
April 12, 2012. I have a 2,400 +/- sq ft home in downtown Augusta. We bought the home 7 years ago...the home was built around 1982....it is a wood frame "stilt" home built on the levee along side the Savannah river...we are about 30 feet above the river and set back about 50'....there is no "dampness" in our yard....my wife has extreme health conditions that have seemed to escalate since our move to Augusta and this home.........her health conditions are mostly immunesystem in nature......I look forward to finding out if it's the house,
area or ????
  
A. In answer to your question, the problem is both your house location and the area. Living along the river means that you likely have high humidity some or all of the day, plus Augusta is high humidity location to begin with.  Go to Home Depot, Lowe's, or a large hardware store to buy a digital hygrometer (about $30) and continually monitor and log in a journal your indoor humidity in various parts of your home on each day at different times of the day. If your indoor humidity is more than 70% some or all of the time, your house will have substantial mold growth from the high humidity, perhaps hidden inside your air conditioning equipment and ducts and inside walls and ceilings. Since your home is built on stilts, carefully examine the underside of your house for any visible mold growth.  To keep the indoor humidity below 70%, you need to run air con 24 hours or use several programmable dehumidifiers set to turn on whenever the humidity exceeds 60%.  To get quick health relief for your suffering wife, you should use ozone blasting inside your air con equipment and ducts and in all the rooms of your house. You can buy our very high ozone-producing ozone generator for less than $500.  While you are at the store buying your hygrometer, buy a do it yourself mold test kit for EACH of your air con supply registers. Then tape one open kit (with the outward air flow from each duct directly facing the sticky side of the opened kit) and then run your air con on air con or ventilation for 10 minutes. Then remove the kits and tape them shut. Attach an adhesive label to the bottom side of each kit and record the precise testing date and location (e.g., "living room air con duct") on each kit label.  Watch the kits for 7 days. If there are many mold colonies and/or different colors and types of mold colonies at the end of 7 days, you know you have a big air con mold infestation problem, which I can help you solve. You should also sign up for my 60 days of unlimited email mold advice for only $99 at http://www.moldmart.net. Looking forward to making your home safe to live in, I close for now.

Ten Steps To Find Hidden Mold Infestation
 
by mold experts Phillip Fry and Divine Fry, July 26, 2013
 
    Often mold infestation problems are hidden inside the building materials of a home, condominium, apartment, office, or commercial building. To find hidden mold problems, use the following mold investigation steps, according to international mold expert Phillip Fry, author of Do-It-Best-Yourself Mold Inspection, Testing, Remediation, and Prevention.

 

 1. Use do it yourself mold test kits from a large hardware or home improvement store to mold test the air of each room, attic, basement, crawl space, and garage, and to do an outdoor mold control test. If self-observation of mold test growth results or mold lab analysis reveals higher than outdoors mold growth in a particular room or area, you should concentrate your in depth mold investigation in such areas.
 
    
 2. Use do it yourself mold test kits to mold test the air flow out of each heating/cooling duct register. If self-observation of mold test growth results or mold lab analysis reveals higher than outdoors mold growth in a particular duct air flow test, you should inspect that duct or ducts and the heating/cooling equipment for likely mold infestation therein.
 

 3. Find elevated moisture and dry rot areas hidden inside ceilings, walls, and floors because the presence of elevated internal moisture and dry rot inside building materials makes it likely that there are also elevated levels of hidden mold growth therein.
 

 4. Use a hidden moisture meter to scan the entire surfaces of all walls, ceilings, and floors for elevated levels of moisture, which would thus facilitate internal mold growth.
 
 5. In drywall ceilings and walls, cut out and remove numerous, wide-spread one inch by one inch drywall squares. Examine each ceiling or wall sample square for mold growth inside the drywall material and on the backside (internal ceiling or wall area). Use a flash light to look inside the holes for mold growth. Smell the internal ceiling or wall air for the possible smell of mold. Draw air samples out of each hole with a fan blowing internal air onto the sticky surface of a mold test kit.
 
 6. Take out the drawers of all kitchen and bathroom cabinets and of all furniture with drawers to examine inside the cabinets, as well as the bottom, and backside of each drawer, for hidden mold infestation.
 
 7. Remove kitchen and bathroom cabinets in their entirety to examine for possible mold growth on the bottom and backside of the cabinets, as well as on and in the wall behind the cabinets and the floor beneath the cabinets.
 
 8. Use a digital hygrometer (about $30 from a large hardware or home improvement store) to check the humidity level of each room, attic, crawl space, basement and garage. If  a room or area has indoor humidity in excess of 60%, there is likely to be hidden mold growth somewhere in such a room or area. Find it by careful visual inspection, and by utilizing the other top ten mold investigation tips provided in this hidden mold list.
 
 9. Examine all bathroom fixtures, kitchen fixtures, laundry fixtures, and all water supply and sewer lines for signs of leaks, which, if existent, would  likely indicate the presence of mold growth inside adjacent wet building materials. Inspect walls and ceilings for water stains, sagging areas, and soft areas.

 10. In the attic, pull up insulation to inspect for hidden mold growth.
