We had toxic mold during the wintertime, which has been removed, by replacing the affected Sheetrock. However, my wife has often still the same symptoms she had at the time. Getting a contractor with the proper equipment out is very expensive. Are there any other cheap "household" tricks to be able to make at least a non-scientific test?
Amazon carries home mold tests. I have no idea if these are any good, but they are pretty inexpensive:
I'm not a fan of the test kits. I recently had some mold issues and used a mail-in tape sample to test for mold. I did 8 samples for $50. I think 3 or 4 samples can also be done for lesser price.
Here is the site I used: http://www.mold-control-on-a-budget.com/ (I'm not associated in any way to her but can vouch for her service and professionalism after using the tape sample service.)
