I am so sorry. My HERTSMI-2 was 10, and my mother and I were sick from mold, even at 10. It's been a year and a half since doing the ERMI / HERTSMI-2.
Just had an air test done, as we were thinking of remediating. On the air test, Aspergillis was over 6,000 and Stachy and Chaetomium were 24. Stachy and Chaetomium rarely end up in an air sample because of their weight. I was floored by the results, and am not even sure I trust them. We left the house in Oct 2016 but kept the HVAC running.
Just to make sure, it is the HERTSMI-2 and not the ERMI that is 28, correct?
If it really is the HERTSMI-2 that is 28, then please educate yourself on mycotoxin cross contamination of possessions so you don't take the toxins with you when you leave.
There is loads of conflicting and some blatantly inaccurate info on the internet about
this. There have also been posts on this forum that include some questionable info. I just posted on this the other day.
The sources I trust are here:www.survivingmold.com/diagnosis/frequently-asked-questionsparadigmchange.me/wp/stuff/biotoxinjourney.com/mold-remediation-overview/
You will probably find conflicting info among these as well. You can also look for Scott Forsgren's conference notes from CIRS conferences and review what was talked about
in terms of mold remediation and content cleaning, etc.
