1929 Sears Catalogue home built on Long Island has mold. Interlocking suspended 12x12 white tiles had water damage in 2012.
Roof was replaced, but tiles not addressed except for using BIN (non shellac) to cover-up, but I used the wrong BIN. Now huse has white stain of dried mold all over the wooden pine paneling and even on clothing stored in drawers. Using white vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, and teatree oil to wipe every surface in house and wash clothing in white vinegar, baking soda, washing soda, and borax, But still not addressing the parlor ceiling. I live on $700 month S.S. with a mortgage until I'm 84. I have to do mold remediation using food stamps to buy the white vinegar. Is all my exhausting cleaning fruitless if I don't address the ceilings? Can I just properly paint tiles or do I need to replace the tiles? And can I just replace the damaged tiles and not the entire ceiling? Most of ceiling is in excellent shape. Concern: Beside mold, I'm fearing tiles have asbestos. They were on ceiling in 1962 when house was bought. thank you. Linda New York
