Today, I am excited to bring you a new sort of post—well, it’s actually more of a Q&A exchange, where a reader of the blog wrote in to ask me a specific “how to clean for mold” question, and I wrote back to impart my best advice. I actually hope that this exchange will spur more of you on to write to me with this sort of inquiry. If I have learned anything in this time of starting and maintaining this blog, it’s that my passion really lies in helping people, and feeling like I am bringing some positive everyday wisdom to the beast that is mold—especially for those of us who are allergic to it. Maybe this sort of exchange can become a regular feature on the blog, if there is enough interest.
So, back to the Q&A:
The lovely Erin Porter, you may remember her from my previous post How to Eat, Pray, and Get Well, wrote to me to ask about a pesky mold problem underneath some wood floorboards in her home. Erin, as you may recall, has had her own share of mold-related sinusitis and struggled for years and years, even undergoing multiple sinus surgeries and countless rounds of antibiotics, before finally finding a doctor who focused on the environmental piece of her illness. (She has her own blog full of beautiful food and photographs about her wellness journey and newfound passion for nutrition and cooking at EatPrayGetWell.com).
