I reeeeaallllly need to calm down here! I'm post-partum and hormonal and teary-eyed and freaking out and HATING
I have found mold growing:
1. In the windows. I'm CONSTANTLY cleaning it out of the windows, where the glass meets the frame. During the winter, when we're running heat, the windows sweat, and mold starts to grow on them.
I looked into having them replaced, but one honest bidder said that there was no need. Sweating was a "good sign" because we weren't leaking heat.
2. On the window shade by one of the moldy windows.
3. On a plastic cutting board that I pulled out of a drawer.
4. When I lifted the toilet tank lid today, mold was growing inside the tank!!
WHAT GIVES!???? I live in a dry climate! Now I'm paranoid that mold could be lurking behind my sheetrock, in my crawlspace, attic....
Is it a problem with my HVAC/ventilation system? If so, is it reparable? None of my other friends in town go through this, so something has to be wrong with my house! I'm cleaning it up constantly, but I HAVE to know what's causing it.
I feel so trapped. I can't stand my house, but the market sucks, and I couldn't try to show a house with two tiny children anyway.
And I wouldn't even ATTEMPT it without figuring out this problem.
