Alexx Stuart - Mould and Humidity FAQs

Show #361 Alexx Stuart – Mould and Humidity FAQs

          

About this show:

Not every mould situation is a massive problem or leads to complex chronic illness – the good news is there’s a lot you can do with a couple of tools and some literacy, to prevent mould in your home from causing symptoms or damaging soft furnishings. So, in this show, I answer some of the most common questions I’ve received heading into the humid season here in Australia and, in the show notes you have a tonne more resources to support you if you’re currently worried about mould affecting your home, possessions or health. 

So in this show you’ll learn how to: 

  • Gauge humidity levels in your home
  • Know when it’s time to crank your dehumidification strategy 
  • Know what types of units, size/how many you might need if your air management systems in your home don’t manage humidity effectively enough as they are. 
  • Know how to not be annoyed by noise or heat generated by dehumidifiers with a simple ‘where we are not’ strategy for rotation. 
  • Know how often you need to dehumidify
  • Know what testing you can consider if you think your problem in the home is beyond humidity and you need to think about mould testing
  • And a bonus given I’ve been asked so much lately: Healing from mould on a budget – practical things you can do!

Hope it’s helpful and any more questions, let’s keep the conversation going, 

Alexx

The “So You Think You’ve Got Mould” resource blog I put together, points you to all the podcasts I’ve done over the years, my mould story (don’t worry the extent of my experience is comparatively rare – this will only happen to a small unfortunate group of people with many factors playing into it)

Access the Mould Festival  An interactive event series I hosted in October with some of the world’s top professionals in building, insurance, legal, health, healing, mould testing, building biology, prevention and more regarding mould from every aspect. 

Join the Low Tox Club – $49AUD ($30 US/Euro) and receive support from me and fellow low tox community members on all low tox topics, but also workshopping mould situations and health. We run masterclasses for our members throughout the year on all low tox topics from food, to body, home and mind… Last week’s member masterclass, for example, was about interpreting mould results I received recently and finding a way to ‘stay’ in our apartment despite there being some unsafe levels of certain moulds – I dive into the ‘why’ of the results, the options for the fixes and then what we did/are doing – and we’re thriving! Moisture control is KEY.
