Coastal BC, Canada - a 30yr. old 2400sq/ft Rancher

A black fine mold has developed throughout the house. Its visible in the window frames and runners, ceiling fans and crevices of baseboards. It is also, inside the walls and has left a light stain on the pick insulation. The house has baseboard heating and it collects dust and circulates the spores. I recently turned the house over to the bank. When purchasing, I was lied to and by omission / negligence, my home inspector was incompetent. This proved very costly. Its a total loss. Next time I plan to use modern green techniques, lots of stone, clean surfaces with in-floor heating. Possibly geo-thermal/off grid. I will NOT ever buy a 'typical 30 year old house' along the coastal north west ever again.

Hi "Darn Moldy "
Thank you for your submission! I agree once you have been through the mold experience, you never go there again! I am sure I am still suffering from the effects of living in a moldy house. Green building methods have the solutions :)
