Q&A: Are there any organizations that will provide aid to low income families affected by black mold in Virginia?

Question by digyourditch: Are there any organizations that will provide aid to low income families affected by black mold in Virginia?
I know of a family in VA that needs potentially toxic black mold to be removed from their home before it spreads; however, they are a low income family in a hollar and would never be able to afford the costs. Are there any organizations that would help fund the removal. Repairs/Replacement of effected areas would not have to be included.

Ive not heard of any besides the city themselves, do track it. You would call housing. They might get evicted for the cleaning process though. Think about that before calling.
Bleach is a good killer for this or any mold or mildew. If they are ill they need to just move, if they dont know what it is, they should take pictures and then clean with bleach, leave a small area alone so that a test can be run though. Cover it with say a poster or tape it up.

    I haven’t heard of any organizations that provide help for low income people needing help with mold remediation. Actually I have heard of the EPA going in and telling people that they have to leave everything including their car, with no reimbursement for lost property. Home owners insurance sometimes covers mold but you would have to check with your insurance agent.

    If you are looking for a much more cost effective way to remove the mold then I would recommend going to this site:

    http://www.moldrx4u.com

    In there Dr. Close has found an anti-fungal agent that kills mold in the air and on surfaces. It is non-toxic and can be used in the house while you are still in it. It is very cost effective, and can keep you from having to go through some of the more costly expenses of mold removal, such as materials disposal.

    Also if they have to have the materials removed or decide they would just feel more comfortable having the materials removed then if they use his anti-fungal agent they wouldn’t have to worry about the spores remaining in the house even after the materials are removed.
