We found out we have a void between the attic and basement and when they took out the old medicine cabinet and put in a new one they took out the blown in insulation so there was condensation and a cold back wall in the cabinet so hubby went in the attic and could see the back of the medicine cabinet and pushed down the old blown in paper insulation and it eneded up in the basement right where the air purifier was on. What a mess.

I vacuumed it up with the central vac as best as I could and changed the air purifier prefilter (HEPA filter looked clean) and vacuumed that. I took a swab sample and it came back with RARE of 4 different molds. We probably walked it all over the house not to mention what hubby brought down with him from the attic. The dust went right thriugh the drop cloth under the pull down stairs.

How do I get this out of my house. I can't be exposed to any more mold as my blood levels are so high. Also, what happens when spring comes -- our house always has high humidity even with 3 dehumidifiers (i of which now has insulation dust in it) and central a/c. I have to take care of everything because of hubby's asthma. We have no money left. Oh, hubby went out and got batting insulation and somehow got it down there and did fix the medicine cabinet problem.

Any advice would be aoppreciated.

Thanks.

Rare.....means that on the slide, spore were hard to find. It sounds like its not a problem based on that information.

Keep wiping or vacuuming up the surface dust, and the moisture in check and you should be alright. IMO
