Has it been constant dreary weather and rain where you live? Our days are wet ones here. As soon as Daylight Savings hit and the days got shorter, it has rained without ceasing in Tennessee. Not good for the mood, but my outdoor plants certainly love it.
Speaking of plants and things that love moisture, can we talk about a common outdoor mold/fungus problem? Most of what I write about here on the blog focuses on indoor mold and your health and wellness, but today I am going to shift gears a little. I am going to write my response to a reader’s question on Tim Carter’s Q & A column in The Washington Post, called “Ask the Builder.”
As you can see from the column’s name, a reader writes in with a construction, home repair, or building dilemma and Tim writes back with an answer from his professional builder’s perspective. This time, the reader’s question concerns a common outdoor mold problem—one that we have also battled at our home: mold growth on a paved patio.
