Is the mold problem real? I seem to recall a news story there a few years ago that claimed that the mold problem was invented by the clean-up industry.
I would partially agree with that. Mold is never good, but how come black mold recently became so bad? A friend of mine recently sold his home and the new owners found black mold under a piece paneling in the basement. My friend and his wife I know idea it was there. My friend and his wife get sued because the owners claim they tried to hide the mold with the paneling. That stuff has been there since the 70s and my buddy bought the house in 2001. In some of the legal paper work it stated that the city inspector told the new owners to move out until it was cleaned up. If it was so dangerous how come the new owners never had trouble until they began remodeling the basement. My friends had the case thrown out, but it still was troublesome for them.
My house was built in 1954 and I am sure there is something bad in it.
