Library Journal Review

A problem facing homeowners everywhere, mold can form in basements, attics, living rooms, bedrooms, walls, ceilings, floors, and heating and cooling systems, both inside and outside of the house. The resulting discoloration and musty odor can not only lower property values and destroy a home's ambience but also cause serious illness, allergy, and headaches. May, a certified indoor air-quality professional (see his excellent book on indoor allergens, My House Is Killing Me!), and wife Connie explain what molds are, why and where they grow, and how to rid our living spaces of these dangerous fungal microorganisms. The authors furnish clear explanations, examples from actual situations, and valuable advice gleaned from May's 15 years' experience. A guest chapter by two physicians reveals how prolonged exposure to molds affects our health. A storehouse of knowledge presented in a readable style, this will appeal to homeowners, apartment dwellers, and real estate agents alike.-Irwin Weintraub, Brooklyn Coll.
