Mold Sensitized Purpose

To provide in depth, well-researched information on mold, serving the interests of mold sensitized individuals, physicians, and contractors.

Mold Information for Sensitized Individuals

This site is dedicated to mold sensitized individuals who are currently living with the health issues associated with exposure to water damaged buildings. We strive to provide you with extensive information and research to help you cope with your condition and provide you with solutions to get better.

Mold Information for Physicians

This site is also dedicated to the many physicians who understand the latest science related to the health impacts that water damaged buildings have on the long-term health of their patients. Their continued investigation into the causes and treatments of biotoxin illness is leading to real hope for people who have felt that there was no answer for their ailments.

Mold Information for Contractors

This site is dedicated to the hard working remediation contractors that empathize and realize that providing a safe home to mold sensitized individuals requires a greater understanding of every aspect of a mold remediation project, including source removal, content cleaning, decontamination of HVAC systems, and elimination of microbial reservoirs from the entire structure.

Our ultimate goal is to help mold sensitized individuals find safe havens in their home by offering information based upon over 30 years of working with mold sensitized individuals.
