    Mold in my bathroom...

    Ok, so I live at home with my parents and they seem to think this mold is NO BIG DEAL. SOOOOO...I am doing some research.

    It is growing right above my shower on the wall and is getting worse. I am the only one who uses this particular bathroom, unless my sister is home from college. My mom says they have the same mold problem in thier bathroom. Ok, fine. I had mold in my dorm room in college and the whole wall had to be replaced...so that tells me that mold is BAD.

    My question for those of you who know your stuff is

    1) How bad is it?
    2) How can I clean it?
    3) How expensive is it to get tested?
    4) Is it only bad if I am allergic to it? Or can it be just generaly bad for my lungs anyway?
    5) Is there any way that I can test the air quality or do I have to hire someone to do that?

    Please let me know what you think.

    Mold is Bad Caitlin. It can cause severe respiratory infections. Also, Headache's and fatigue. Bleach and a good scrubbing can get rid of mold (Wear a Mask). I have a Pressure steamer that gets rid of it for me. They can be expensive, but, you can rent them cheap. Mold is dangerous for those without CF. So for you it can become a worse problem.

    I don't want to scare you. You should, at least in your bathroom, get rid of it.

    Take care,
