Mold sniffing dogs

Here is something I wish I knew was available a few years back–mold sniffing dogs. We had a house get flooded and insurance would not pay. I ended up having to either replace all the drywall at my own expense or try to dry it out with the hopes that no mold would grow in the mean time. That is a big hope since we lived in Florida where the humidity is quite high.

I did not know that it was possible to have mold testing done. But there is a service that will send dogs into your home or business looking for mold. They are based in New Jersey. I did not find on their website what areas they service, but it is a cool thing to know that there are services like this available.

We ended up drying out our house as best we could and never had problems. That was 5 years ago and the current owners knew about the problem and have never mentioned anything about mold. I guess we got lucky.

  1. Wow, I had no idea. Seems like it is something of a problem that we should have been working on for many years. Especially with the (seeming) increase of allergies.
