WWYD -- What Would You Do? To those who are mold sensitive...
I am in the process of buying a house and the mold and mycotoxins tests (Realtime Labs) are being conducted Friday morning. Is there any level of mold or mycotoxin that you would remediate or would you walk away from the deal?
Do you have a mold and mycotoxin test done to every home that you consider living in? Have you ever found zero levels?
To those who have remediated their homes and possessions, what did it cost and what did it entail? Were you able to live in it afterwards or not?
Due to many I have not had the places I've lived in mold tested by my last home had a shocking mold issue and my current home also has a mold issue but connected to mostly just the one room.
I would not buy a home in which I was told needed mold remediation (im extremely mold sensitive since Ive had ME and have the worst genotype for mold sensitivity).
I looked into getting my last home treated and after a mold expert's advice, was told that ozone treatment (I hope I have that right) was the only thing which really could done in regards to fixing the issue due to the mold spores being in the air and I was quoted A LOT of money for that (I cant remember what it was but I think was a couple of thousand australian dollars).
I think mold may play a big part in some getting susceptable to ME seeing I got ME while living in an extremely mold affected house (I lived in a house which had no bathroom ventilation and had an incontenient disabled child who needed showering often.. along with the house having a roof leak which affected the whole house, my sister who also got ME was at the time living in a house which had a leaking pipe inside which cold severe mold issues.. my two sisters who have not got ME have never lived in mold affected houses).
