    MY HUSBAND JUST INFORMED ME THAT WHEN THE SPECIALIST CAME IN TO TEST WHAT TYPES OF MOLD WE HAD, HE SAID THAT THE HOUSE WAS SO SEVERELY CONTAMINATED THAT IT WOULD NOT BE FINANCIALLY PRACTICAL TO REMEDIATE THE CONDITION. THE SAD THING HERE IS THAT WITHIN 90 DAYS OF US MOVING OUT THE CONDO WAS RE-RENTED.

    I was waiting to post to you again until my husband came home but he is having to stay in Wilmington again tonight because of work they received from the hurricane.

    I wanted to make sure but I thought the mold strains that you named were the very dangerous ones. I just did not want to alarm you until I spoke with him.

    My Mom's breast cancer returned last August and for her birthday present and her wedding anniversary they wanted to go back to the beach for Thanksgiving.

    We rented a large condo that we had rented the previous year because it was so nice. When we arrived everything looked strange...dirty and there were holes poked in the ceiling. We thought maybe someone had had a wild party. It was cold and when we turned on the heat, the fire alarms started screaming. The unit was nasty because during a previous hurricane it was flooded and was full of mold. My chest was burning and most of us got sick. My son had his equipment and took pictures and had evidence of the mold. My DM did not want to leave. She wanted to stay so bad and their bedroom was not as affected as the rest.

    The maintenance told us that people had been all over those units and they were NOT supposed to be rented. It was a nightmare. I was sick for months. There we were with my Mom having active cancer and taking radiation and she has emphysema and I have mod COPD.

    I finally got a refund and a promise that the unit would not be rented until properly cleaned and treated. Cleaning probably would not have solved this one either. I was so mad because I was so sick. If I had been my old self I would have pursued it to court just to make sure no one else went through what we did.

    I hope you sue them. Those molds can do you great harm. How is your family's health?
