Toxic Mold Destroys Both Your Home and Your Health!

"Most homeowners believe as long as they do not see visible signs of mold, that is, patches of green, blue, or black discoloration on surfaces, their environment is free of contamination. What they don't realize, however, is that large accumulations of [hidden or concealed] mold may be growing in areas that they cannot see, like air ducts, remote attic or basement spaces, or wall cavities. Left to multiply, these infestations may produce enough organic compounds to cause allergic reactions, sickness and, in extreme cases, death (a possibility with infants and the elderly)," Edward R. Lipinski, "HOME CLINIC: The Battle Against Mold and Mildew," New York Times, 9/12/99.
