The Mold Survival Guide PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Mold Survival Guide free pdf Mold may be part of the natural world, but elevated levels of household mold and mildew are indoor pollutants that can cause serious health problems. Mold can flourish in older houses as well as in newer, more energy efficient homes, leaving homeowners vulnerable to allergies and breathing difficulties--not to mention unscrupulous or incompetent inspectors, costly clean-up efforts, high insurance premiums, and unsympathetic family and friends. In The Mold Survival Guide, a prominent home inspector joins forces with a writing specialist to create a clear guide to a common--and increasingly vexing--problem. Jeffrey and Connie May define mold and describe when and how it grows. Readers learn why mold flourishes in certain areas of the home, what conditions are favorable to mold growth, and how to identify the sources of contamination. The Mays also offer detailed guidance on how to clean up mold while minimizing health risks--and identify situations in which professional help is necessary. Because exposure to mold can have serious health consequences, The Mold Survival Guide includes a chapter written by two physicians who explain how exposure to mold can affect our health, from runny noses and coughs to more severe respiratory illnesses. Straightforward scientific explanations combined with expert advice provide readers with a solid understanding of why mold develops and how to get rid of it. Entertaining as well as informative, The Mold Survival Guide will be a valuable resource for people concerned about a common household problem that can have serious consequences.
