From Toxic To Not Sick Book Review
I purchased this book From Toxic To Not Sick as there is a chapter by Dr Richie Shoemaker who is one of the foremost authorities on mould. As we are mould remediation specialists, I want to specifically review the book in relation to the chapter about mould only.
Why read it
Let me start by saying, I really enjoyed the chapter about mould and all the content is certainly spot on.
If you think you might be suffering from mould. This is a great starting point as Dr Richie Shoemaker will talk about
- symptoms to look out for
- how to remove the mould
- tests you can take if you are worried about genetic sensitivity
Highlights of the book
Some Simple Useful Steps to Mould Remediation
I think when it comes to mould, people are overwhelmed because they don’t know where to start. Dr Richie Shoemaker explains a systematised process for fighting mould which include:
- Stopping all water intrusion so the building envelopes are cleared and watertight
- Get rid of porous materials and clean the nonporous
- Installation of Hepa Filter
- Sounds pretty simple, but generally this is the process involved in a typical mould remediation.
Hepa filtration is an important part of mould remediation. It talks about how leaving the hepa filter in one location inside the house is ineffective due to “boundary layers.” These are pretty much layers of air which are laughing at you saying “I’m not moving.”
Filtration is a pain point in many homeowners suffering from mould. Sometimes people can’t quite get it right. Therefore it would be a good idea to read this chapter as it talks about how to filter your home properly.
