Did have a friend/girlfriend who died of mold infection. Another friend went to see her on a Friday night and she seemed fine, like almost ready to go home. By Sunday afternoon she was dead !

It got into the spinal fluid/brain, as we were told. Lungs are one thing; once in the brain, be SURE the funeral arrangements have been made.

I don´t live in NO, however had a battle with it last year. I use Lysol spray, kills 99.9%. In the winter check for leaks from roof, and around windows. Fix them right away, otherwise the black mold gets insiade the walls! Keep your house well ventilated, by using a fan when cooking, or in the shower. Invest in one of these devices that pull in cold moisture, and blows it back out as warm clean air. About 80.00.
This will keep condensation aways, and off your windowns durning the winter, and warm your house too.

Re: black mold growing up the walls and over the ceiling, and there´s no way to stop it
A good and safe way to kill mold is by the use of an ozone generator, successful in eliminating black mold in homes and boats after flooding conditions. They are not cheap, but are effective, not only for mold, but ozone pretty much does away with roaches, rats, the smell of smoke and other bad odors.

You have to be very careful of who you are buying from. A web search and comparison will do wonders to find out what level of ozone is created and the warranty. Then you call them or e-mail them for questions in writing. I would not buy the Aranizer...bad company.

Here is one website that describes what an ozone generator will do. COMPARE with others, though.

Re: black mold growing up the walls and over the ceiling, and there´s no way to stop it
Mold overtakes flooded city in a foul flourish

By Oren Dorell, Laura Parker and Tom Kenworthy, USA TODAY

NEW ORLEANS — A throng of visitors has invaded the French Quarter, but they aren´t tourists.

Mold grows in a New Orleans house. The owners have hired a work crew to rip out the floorboard and walls on the entire first floor.
By Coburn Dukehart, USA TODAY

They´re mold spores, and they´re taking hold and growing furiously everywhere. On anti-ques in shuttered shops. On the white tablecloths of empty cafes and restaurants. On the walls and furnishings of boutique hotels. On the green-spiked Cole Haan high heels and alligator pumps in a Canal Street department store window.

At the Hotel Provincial on Rue Chartres, which advertises "the grace and charm of old world elegance," gray mold has invaded about 50 rooms. It is growing on the claw legs of anti-que tables and on the gilt frames of mirrors and art prints.

"It´s starting in the rooms that weren´t even damaged now," said Scott Boswell, owner of Stella restaurant across the courtyard from the hotel, as he led a tour.

More than three weeks after Hurricane Katrina flooded much of this city, residents and business owners face another insidious calamity. Hot, humid New Orleans has become a giant mold factory.

"Mold is literally growing all over the city right now," said Carl Clayton, a New Orleans developer.

´No way to stop it´

Even homes spared from high water are at risk after three weeks with no air conditioning, Clayton said. And the longer residents are barred from returning, the more their homes will decay.

"Some of these houses are going to have black mold growing up the walls and over the ceiling, and there´s no way to stop it," he said. "It will eat up the drywall and destroy it. ... At some point, even the houses that could be saved will have to be torn down."

If residents and business owners in the Big Easy haven´t learned already, they will find that getting rid of the furry stuff eating away at their wallboard and furnishings is labor-intensive, costly and sometimes a health threat.

"It´s going to be a huge problem," said Martin King, a technical adviser to the Association of Specialists in Cleaning and Restoration, a Maryland-based trade group for restoration contractors.

"Mold spores are everywhere," said Claudette Reichel, a professor and housing specialist at Louisiana State University´s AgCenter. "They are nature´s recyclers. They break down materials like trees and plants and organic matter."

Dave Keith, co-founder of K2 Environmental, a California company that specializes in repairing flood and mold damage, said houses with serious mold problems essentially must be stripped down to the framing. Wallboard, linoleum and insulation must be disposed of, along with furnishings such as rugs, drapes and bedding — almost everything that got wet or even damp.

Once a badly damaged house is stripped to the studs and other framing materials, the wood must be sanded and then disinfected with a bleach solution to kill remaining spores. Then the house must be thoroughly dried with fans or de-humidifiers. "It´s basically rebuilding the house from the inside," Keith said.

Some efforts will fall short. Anu Dixit, an assistant professor at the Saint Louis University School of Public Health, studied molds after Missouri River flooding. She found that mold returns in about one-third of affected houses, even after treatments.

"People with allergies and asthma should not be involved in cleanup, and anyone whose immune system is compromised," Reichel warned. Some molds produce toxins that can cause serious health problems, including liver damage and cancer.

In New Orleans´ Carrollton neighborhood, mold has climbed to shoulder height in the house where brothers Karry and Felton Crowley grew up. The mold has formed felt-like blooms on clothing, furniture and nearly everything else up to 5 feet off the floor.

"Anytime you have sewage back up into your house and then sitting there for days, you got bacteria and mold growing all in there," said Karry Crowley, 48, who works in the engineering department for the New Orleans Public Library.

Tearing out

Henry St. Amank, who owns Saint Construction in nearby Metairie, cleaned out a lawyer´s office in the Mid-City area, where the water left a mark 2 feet up the inside walls. St. Amank started four days ago, but the mold had already traveled to 4 feet high.

St. Amank and his crew ripped out the carpet, baseboards, doors and trim and marked the lower 4 feet of drywall for removal. They will soak the exposed framing with a mold-killing solution and allow it to dry before completing the repairs, which will take six weeks and cost about $25,000.

At American Fashions Mens Wear, contractor George Hocutt of Decatur Holdings positioned a 4-foot fan in the doorway and hauled out display cases and trash bags filled with soggy, mildewed merchandise. "I´ve been remodeling houses for 20 years, and this is the worst I´ve ever seen," he said.

Bleach and de-moisterizing the area is the answer; UV light can be effective also.

Do not use an ozonator. It´s more dangerous to your health than the mold.

Get a spray bottle and put some bleach in it.

I reccomend hitting mold and the area right around the mold with it.

And then just let it air out.

THE SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE AND LONG TERM SOLUTION

INSTALL AN IONISER OR OZONISER. THEY WORK AND THEY BENEFIT YOU AS WELL.

COMPARE DATA

VIOXX FDA SAFE, 55,000 DEAD

OZONE FDA INSAFE ZERO DEAD.

IN FACT MAN SEEKS NATURALLY OZONES HEALING POWERS. MOUNTAINS, WATERFALL, SEASIDE ALL REFUGES FROM THE DEADLY CITY AND ENVIRONMENTS RICH IN OZONE.

AND JUST LIKE ANYTHING ELSE, TOO MUCH CAN BE NOT SO GOOD FOR YOU. WATER IS VITAL BUT DROWNING REMAINS ONE MAJOR CAUSE OD DEATH.

I LIKE THE SOUND OF THE ARANISER BUT SEVERAL HERE REPORT MADLY MADE. IS THAT JUST INFO, CONTACT ARANISER YOURSELF, FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF. OTS EASY, KUST GOOGLE AND WRITE OR CALL.

THATS WHY IT MAKES SENSE TO INVEST A COUPLE OF HUNDRED BUCKS IN AN IONISE/OZONISER AND MIX UP SOME 6% JYDROGEN PEROXIDE SPRAY AND WASG SOWN THE RESIDUES.

SIMPLE ECONOMICS. SIT BACK BELIEVE THE LIES AND PAY THOUSANDS OR EVEN LOSE YOUR HOME OR TRY SOMEdont_use_thisF.

SOME BLACK MOULDS HARBOUR A VERY NASTY BACTERIA AND SOME PEOPLE ARE VERY SENSITIVE TO IT. IT CASUES TOXIC SHOCK IN THE BODY AND RAPID DEATH. MANY DOCUMENTED CASES IN THE USA.

JUST THINK, SOME BLOODY PILLS CAN COST YOU ONE HUNDRED BUCKS EACH AND YOU SUPPOSED TO TAKE THEM FOR LIFE. COMAPRE THAT WITH A FEW BUCKS SPENT TO DEFEND YOURSELF. WORST CASE, IT DONT WORK, AT LEAST YOU TRIED. BUT I BELIEVE IN MOST CASES IT DOES WORK, UK HOSPITAL TRIALS HAVE CLEANED WARDS IN HOURS THAT WERE UNSAFE UNUSABKE FOR YEARS DUE TO STAPH INFECTION. IONISER FIXED IN THREE HOURS. YES THREE HOURS.

Re: black mold growing up the walls and over the ceiling, and there´s no way to stop it
No way does bleach always kill mold. I had a water bed and some water leaked out and got on the inside of the mattress and the mold was unremovable. I used bleach, I used every chemical known to man and the stuff would not die...I finally had to dump the entire bed.

There was a "mold" story on 60 minutes a few years ago about a couple in TX that had to walk away from their $1M dollar home because of the mold.

I am leary of anything now involving humidity and water. I have a humidifier on my furnance but haven´t turned it on. This stuff can be growing behind walls and ceilings like this one couple I know. They went away on vacation and turned off the a/c, when they came back the entire house and furniture was covered in black spores.

How is Ozone Harmful?
[link to www.epa.gov]

The same chemical properties that allow high concentrations of ozone to react with organic material outside the body give it the ability to react with similar organic material that makes up the body, and potentially cause harmful health consequences. When inhaled, ozone can damage the lungs (see - "Ozone and Your Health" - www.epa.gov/airnow/brochure.html). Relatively low amounts can cause chest pain, coughing, shortness of breath, and, throat irritation. Ozone may also worsen chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma and compromise the ability of the body to fight respiratory infections. People vary widely in their susceptibility to ozone. Healthy people, as well as those with respiratory difficulty, can experience breathing problems when exposed to ozone. Exercise during exposure to ozone causes a greater amount of ozone to be inhaled, and increases the risk of harmful respiratory effects. Recovery from the harmful effects can occur following short-term exposure to low levels of ozone, but health effects may become more damaging and recovery less certain at higher levels or from longer exposures (US EPA, 1996a, 1996b).

1360: "Why is an ozonator dangerous to your health? Have you suffered something due to use of an ozonator? Please describe as I´m interested in the machines at the above link -- Pro-Tech."

Ozonators are not dangerous to your health. Ozone has been known to be safe since 1950:

"pure ozone is not poisonous in any sense of the word as it breaks down in contact with the mucous membrane and oxygen only remains. For this reason, there are no cumulative effects and pure ozone may be breathed for long periods of time without harm provided, of course, that immediate irritation of strong concentrations is avoided."

Excerpt from "Reprint from Industrial Medicine and Surgery, 19:2, 45-57, February, 1950



GL: "I LIKE THE SOUND OF THE ARANISER ...."

GL, you might like the sound of the Aranizer, but so did I! I invested $400 in one. Their warranty isn´t honored. My experience with this company left me $400 in the hole plus the $25 it cost to ship back for repairs, which after that, the thing smoked like it was on fire. They wanted something like $100 to return for further repairs. It didn´t last a year! I tossed it and opted to buy another from Envirotech. It isn´t quite a year old yet, so can´t brag on it until another few months have gone by. Same money. Ugh. One cannot afford to continue to buy replacements at that cost.

One thing about ozone generators is that not only do they kill bacteria, etc., but will remove odors right down to the shoes in your closet. Be very careful of the manufacturer´s warranty. You always get to pay for mailing in for repairs.

IT IS UNUSUAL FOR MANUFACTURERS TO CAUSE SUCH PROBLEMS. MAYBE YOU HAD A DUFF UNIT, EVEN SONY, FORD AND NASA PRODUCE THOSE. I WOULD WRITE OE CALL THEM, ASK THEM IF THEY WERE INTERESTED INPRODUCT QUALITY, ASK WHY THERE RESPONSE WAS SO POOR. I DO IT A LOT AND USUALLY GET POSITIVE RESPONSES.

THAT BEING SAID, YOUR EXPERICE WAS A FTC MATTER NOT AN FDA MATTER. OZONE WORKS AND AS YOU SAY AFTER 30 MINS OR SO RETURNS TO OXYGEN UNLIKE MOST POISONS. COUGHING IS CAUSED BY DEAD BUGS IN THEL UNGS CAUSING IRRITATION AND IS NOWHERE NEAR AS BAD AS WHAT YOU GET FROM AN OVERCHLORINATED POOL. YET THIS IS THE ONLY THING QUOTED TO TELL YOU "OZONE IS DEADLY", WHICH IT IS TO BUGS AND MOULDS.
