The Brighter Side of Black Mold

There is much overstated when it comes to the the so-called "black mold" as know as Stachybotrys. The purported seminal case often referred is the Cleveland case of hemosiderosis was later discounted as to causation of the condition of bleeding lung in infants in that city.

The medical research does not support any wide claim that this fungus merits the alarm that is generated on the Internet by lay "mold inspectors" .

Many consider such reporting as "mold terrorism" as does this research scientist.

  1. Common Overlooked Mold Source In Homes

    In 2002 I burned my home down because it was beyond repair because of mold. As you can imagine, I have studies this issue ever since. There is a respiratory threat along with aerated mold and bacteria from jetted bathtubs.

    Jetted tubs, often called Jacuzzi’s, have about 15-20 feet of plumbing lines that run underneath the tubs. These lines are full of warm stagnant water that is full of biofilm, mold, fungus and bacteria. If the tub isn’t cleaned properly, with a cleaner designed to clean jetted tubs, you run the risk of bathing in very, very high levels of bacteria and breathing in aerated mold and bacteria.

    Use a jetted tub cleaner like Oh Yuk Jetted Tub Cleaner, that was designed to clean jetted bathtubs for the lodging industry. This will ensure that you are bathing in clean bathwater, and breathing clean air.
