Our expert says:
It is possible that some members of your family have a hypersensitivity or allergic response to mold. The level of mold you describe does not sound very high, however, and there may be a number of other factors involved. Even so, you should do all you can to prevent mold in your home - i.e. clean off existing mold and dry the area thoroughly(try 1 part bleach to 4 parts water and a small amount of non-ammonia dishwashing liquid), and find and remove the source of moisture. I don't think it will be very useful having the mold typed, but I do think having your family allergy tested would be a good idea.
