Does anyone know of any good books, dvds, videos etc from an eco/natural building perspective specifically concerning mold, breathable walls, air toxins, volotile compounds, healthy air and stuff like that etc
I am working at becoming a clay plasterer, ive got a decent sense of what makes for healthy environments but would like a more in depth knowledge concerning mold, VOCs etc as way of personal interest and promoting clay against toxic non breathable surfaces, glues, etc etc
If you are working with true clay plasters, there will be no VOC issues since you will not be using any. Molds grow in moist conditions, not the dry conditions needed for most clay and earthen plasters, which would limit where they could grow to exterior applications for the most part.
NOTE: it is possible to find clays that have toxic components such as lead, mercury and other heavy metals.
