DANIEL STIH is a Board-Awarded, Council-Certified, Indoor Environmental Consultant (CIEC) and Microbial Consultant (CMC). Prior to getting involved in mold, Stih was an aerospace engineer working at Motorola for eleven years. He moved to a small town where, as fate would have it, he became a handyman. He got ill from working in construction and decided to find out what was making him and some of the people that lived in the houses he went into sick. From this experience, he authored his first book, Healthy Living Spaces: Top 10 Hazards Affecting Your Health.
Mold is at the top of the list. Stih has performed thousands of mold tests in every type of building with every kind of test one can imagine. He is discouraged by the trend to treat mold instead of remove it (something that doesn't work and doesn't make people feel better). His most recent book is Mold Money: How to Save Thousands of Dollars in Mold Remediation and Make Sure the Mold is Gone.
