I was at my store until 5:00, so I didn't have much time at the house today. The contractor found some unwanted surprises. I expected some since it's an older house, built in 1962. The previous owner died a year ago and I'm pretty sure it was respiratory problems. After uncovering all the mold, I am not surprised that he had problems. I am SOOOOOO glad that we had to tear out the carpet or we wouldn't have found the mold.
Tonight my son and I tore out carpet and took up some of the carpet tacking. The smell in the house is very bad.
Tomorrow night I'll finish taking up the carpet tacking and shovel up the black stuff in the bedrooms. And, tomorrow we're wearing masks!
