Overview

The complete guide to dealing with mold in your home--the asbestos of the new millennium

Toxic mold infestations in the home have been brought to the forefront of public awareness. Erin Brockovich's struggle to fight this health crisis and Ed McMahon's experience of this problem in his own home have further publicized the fact that mold has been linked to a host of serious health problems. Yet there are no standards for acceptable indoors mold levels and no laws requiring home sellers to disclose mold problems.

Written by award-winning reporter Vicki Lankarge, this is the first complete home owner's/home buyer's guide to dealing with mold. Clearly and concisely, Lankarge acquaints readers with the latest findings about mold infestation and arms them with everything they need to know to:

  • Successfully detect the presence of mold
  • Prevent, control, or eliminate mold
  • Deal with mold-related health problems
  • Understand mold's legal implications
  • Work with insurance companies on mold-related cases

    A Timely Book on an Important Subject

    Among other causes, contemporary building materials and airtight construction have resulted in an explosion of mold contamination in both private homes and public buildings. Vicki Lankarge has clearly researched her subject thoroughly. Her very readable book provides timely and helpful information on assessing mold contamination and finding ways to deal with it. The book includes useful sections on cleaning infestations and dealing with insurance companies, local authorities and state agencies. Lively writing, vivid examples, and concrete suggestions for dealing with mold and the problems it causes characterize this fine work.
