That said, ChickenArise, would a person benefit from fogging their home with the appropriate materials and the addition of a high-quality air purifier without actually having remediation take place?...would fogging provide lasting benefits beyond the first few days? I seem to recall you mentioning a plan to fog every three months.
I am benefiting greatly right now as I plan a self remediation.
Waking inflammation is a thing of the past
(spoke too soon but it was a good run) as I sleep next to the new HEPA fan/filter. Morning eye discharge and irritation is also gone. The Hamilton Beach unit helped but it wasnt enough to make this much of a difference but it did provide the clues needed.
Now in the main room it is a bit of a different story and inflammation still occurs. The unit I have has a good sensor and I can watch it tell me how dirty the air is. It does go from unclean to clean and back again in a random fashion. Likely residual mold from the attic spilling into the living area.
The other 2 machines (Air Pods) should arrive this week. When I get them they will go into different rooms and I will run an additional fan intermittently to try to get any residual mold airborne and in the direction of the unit so the HEPA can suck it all up. I will also turn the attic exhaust fan back on as this seems to lift mold into the air and leave the house with all HEPA units running.
I will rotate them after a few days running nom stop in each room. I plan to mold bomb the attic to try to help prevent new growth, but all that mold has to be filtered still.
If you see mold it should be fogged with Concrobium before disturbing it. Fogging encapsulates and kills the mold. It also prevents regrowth for a while. If the Concrobium cant dry it wont work. I would keep the air system off if I werent planning to fix the problem. Maybe you could get some Concobium in the area that is bad and just fog the heck out of it.
It would be beneficial to get a HEPA filter between you and the air coming out if it. I am sure you could use any replacement filter that would fit over the main duct which empties into your ductwork. Jam it on in there and tape any gaps around the edges as the mold that misses the filter will get caught in the tape.
This should be the difference between you inhaling a million extra spores or two. I would keep the HEPA machine that you have near you and running at all times. If you did invest in a machine able to handle more air you will notice a benefit I am sure. The good news is you could take it with you to wherever you move.
Of course there must be no continuous large amounts of standing water to contend with. If the mold is in drywall this will likely need to be replaced rather than fogged over, but the Concrobium will trap and kill mold for a while.
I hope this helps !
Hoagie, I considered the air testers but I already know there is lots of mold. I have seen 5 different kinds. Maybe when I think the place is clean I will get them and see.
