Are your indoor mold levels higher than those outside?
Mold, Mould and Moulde: enough is enough
About mold articles: more than you want to know.
I've been working in mold for a while now and I just have to say this. Everyone who went to high school knows the structure of an essay: introductory paragraph, body, conclusion. And there are other elements that are important, such as sentence variety, sentence structure, and main idea. However, my main idea isn't paragraphing; I'm just moved to write on bad blogging techniques that I see in the "mold" topic area.

How many times, when talking about mold control, do you need to say mold spores come from the outside, but once a colony is established in your house, it is hard to eliminate; you hire a professional, then it takes significant effort to eliminate the mold; that mold is related to water leaks and if you eliminate the water leak, you eliminate the re-occurrence of the problem? What is the point in restating this, paragraph after paragraph, simply varying sentence order? First of all, I wonder why these bad bloggers repeat the same information, paragraph to paragraph. If this is a SEO strategy to fool search engines, it just perplexes me. Don't these bloggers know there's a difference between random traffic and effective traffic? No one reads past the first line of gibberish, much less to the end of this endlessly pointless kind of document. So what is the point?

Of course the mold cycle isn't always the focus. Sometimes it is a (repetitive) line by line compendium of definitions of exotic names like Aspergillus, Cephhalosporium, Cladosporium, Cryptococcus, Fusarium, Rhodotorula and Trichoderma. All of this is well and good if you're sitting there with your mold taxonomy catalogue and you're categorizing what you're infested with. But really, do I want to build my own little mold garden, get on a name to name basis with my little mold friends, learn the origin of their names and the mold peerage, and visit their birthday parties? No! I'm going to leave it to the experts to find, and identify the annoying * critters, and take their word for it when they tell me who to use to eliminate it.

Why can't these bloggers use spell-check? If you're writing something that is set in the U.S., that discusses an American mold removal specialist, you spell mold M-O-L-D. You do not spell it MOULD, MOLDE or MOULDE or any other weird variation.

And you mold specialists out there--don't hire non-native speakers! What possible good can it do your website if you've hired bloggers who can't match subject and verb in tense and number? And what about the pronoun problems or being unable to get a sentence in a proper order? You might as well use some babble generator for all the sense you get out of those posts. Remember if your bloggers sound like idiots, you sound like an idiot.

When it comes down to it, what I know is this: If you have mold, there's no better company out there to give you an honest, thorough mold assessment than ByebyeMold. George Hatcher has a stack of certifications taller than I am and he really knows his molds, from Aspergillus to Yeast. Email him at to get him to do a mold assessment, or if you have any questions you want me to write about.

* critters- Ok, I know mold taxonomically are not animals, they're Zygomycota, Deuteromycota and Ascomycota. But isn't it more fun to read about critters?
