Ds has been having mega allergy issues, as have I, lately. So I completely cleared out his room of all furniture and everything and pulled up a corner of his carpet. I did not see any mold so cleaned out his bedroom, put everything back in and bought an air filter for that room.
Yesterday dh and I completely cleared out the babys room (was storage for a lot of stuff). I felt absolutely horrible afterwards, coughing, stuffy nose, ect. Today my mil came over and tore up the section of carpet in the babys room that had the water damage and there was a ton of black mold. So we went back into ds's room and tore up even more than I did a month ago. Sure enough, black mold in there too. The babys room has a ton more than ds's room, but both have some.
So, short of cutting up the wall, how do we know if there's black mold in the wall that is between the 2 rooms? The moldy sections in each room are on the adjacent sides of the wall.
Obviously our first step will be to call the home builder and make them come out because they were supposed to have fixed this already. We will be getting new flooring in both the bedrooms (funny enough, we were already planning on doing that this summer) but want to make sure theres nothing growing under the baseboards or in the wall.
