Got Mold?: Clearing the Air on Mold and Mycotoxins with Jason Earle
JULY 25, 2023
Buildings can make you sick!
We live in a time in which we stay indoors 90% of the time thinking it would keep us safe from any form of disease. That is where mold comes in as we usually turn a blind spot on air quality, which can affect our homes and grow within 24-48 hours. In fact, molding problems in the United States alone is already experienced by 47% of the buildings across the country.
In this episode, Kashif is joined by Jason Earle. Jason Earle is a man on a mission. An adoring father of two boys in diapers, incurable entrepreneur and indoor air quality crusader, he is founder & CEO of GOT MOLD?, and the creator of the GOT MOLD?® Test Kit. The realization that his moldy childhood home was the underlying cause of his extreme allergies and asthma, led him into the healthy home business in 2002, leaving behind a successful career on Wall Street.
Kashif and Jason discuss the story behind GOT MOLD? and where the company is now today - providing user-friendly mold testing, spreading awareness on how pervasive mold is, and sharing knowledge on what to do about it.
