Out of curiosity I looked into mold remediation on a 33' boat. The estimate I got was $10,000 and the guarantee was somewhat vague.
I will take mold more seriously from now on.
Wow, that's intense. I'll take your post as a serious warning, as I'm no spring chicken and a lung infection could be the death of me.
Best wishes on a speedy recovery.
