12:21:24 From Terry Sopher : Q for Sarah: with mold, mycotoxins are 1 of the most serious potential health hazards. So if fungus can be activated within 6 hrs, is it possible they are also producing mycotoxins that rapidly?
12:44:16 From Terry Sopher : excellent point, Joe. & it’s already well established that indoor air is typically a complex mix of chemicals & microbiologicals. Underscores why it’s NOT very useful from IAQ/health perspective to set ‘standards’ for individual chemicals or ‘mold’.

WET CARPETS, DID YOU KNOW?

The devastating 1972 Rapid City, SD flood was the inspiration for Lloyd Weaver (a local carpet cleaner) to invent the "Porta Dryer" now known worldwide as the airmover. The airmover is a device for drying wet carpet on-location. After extracting as much water as possible, the carpet was disengaged from the tackless strip, in a corner. The carpet folded back enough to get slip the airmover underneath the carpet and atop the carpet cushion. When the airmover was turned on, it floated the carpet on a cushion of air. Lloyd's invention was simple, effective and brilliant. He changed carpet cleaners from: suck (extract water), spray (deodorizer or disinfectant) & hope (that nothing bad happened) to water damage restorers.
