  • My throat bleeds from black mold usually found in old water damaged houses and apartments. Ill bet she has a mold allergy!! I cant spend more than a half hour in a house with mold. It starts right away as being sore and within an hour my throat is bleeding.

  • I'm glad your PED gave you the answer. I am an air specialist. Mold can be a very serious problem. If your grandparents needs something to help with the mold problem. I would recommend that they consider getting an Air Purifier that can kill mold. We have air purifiers that can do this if you would like to take a look. Please visit I hope all ends up well. If you have any questions please contact me.
