What do you do if you have mold in your house but don't have any money to get it fixed?

Good information, at least what I could hear. The narrator's voice was too soft and too low as well as too fast. Slow down & speak up a little, please.

What about cement board or Durarock? I am not sure for me (chemically sensitive) if I want fiberglass in my green board. What is the most mold resistant or better yet mold proof product that is a "green product"? I am in the the slow process of redoing a main bath which has a very heavy cement board from the 1950s. Due to a sewage flood a lot had to be removed and treated.

Can't hear it.

Would love to have something printable.

Mold not only causes structural damage and noxious odor, but its airborne spores also may be toxic. This is not a trivial matter to be ignored. Mold needs moisture. Deny it moisture and it cannot grow. The spores can lay dormant for years. Some spores can be killed with fungicides. Acid treatment kills spores, but leave this task to people who know what they are doing.

Helpful content, but volume is low on narrator's voice and narration is sometimes hard to follow.

This was worth listening to; however, the interviewer needs to speak up and speak a little slower. I had a hard time following him. Thanks...
