So we are doing some remodeling and apparently my son's room isn't the only one with a mold problem. My bedroom has mold issues too. We had already planned to pull the carpet in our room but put it off because it was in good shape. Now I find one of my walls has to be pulled apart and treated for mold and the floor will likely have mold too. Add in the mold issue in the other bedroom and what I fear I will find when we redo the kitchen and bathrooms and you can see I am beginning to wonder if all the mold could have made me worse than I was before. Could all this mold have contributed to my flare? Does anyone have experience with mold and mildew encountered while remodeling and lupus issues? I can't move so we have to deal with the mold but is there anything special I should be doing? It's not the black mold that is so dangerous thank goodness but still it is mold and worse I am allergic to mold. Scary stuff to be dealing with.
