toxic mold? under the house in the crawlspace, maybe.
This week, a contractor discovered a galvanized pipe for the shower in our master bathroom leaking water - dripping not gushing . Our 75 year old home has a pier and beam foundation. It was like a lake underneath the house and I'm thinking that leak has been there probably for a rather long time - the contractor thought years.
The leak is fixed now but I was wondering about toxic mold. Are workers' health in danger when they go under our house? The crawl space is somewhat tight but seems like little skinny guys are still able to get under there and do work if it is needed. We will be upgrading the galavanized plumbing in phases as we proceed with our remodeling plan in phases. Hopefully by the end of next year, we will be finished with any need for contractors to work underneath the house, at least for a while anyway.
We also were going to have a pest control company do some kind of preventative treatment for termites so they will need to get under the house, now that I think of it.
Any comments on this situation (besides advising us to sell ASAP)?
