Most lawsuits allege that mold problems could have been avoided, so commercial real estate owners need to show due diligence by investigating any suspected mold problem. We can document your due diligence in investigating mold issues and determine whether they exist at all. We also can provide expert witness testimony.
Toxic molds, commonly referred to as black mold, are more dangerous than ordinary molds because their spores contain poisonous mycotoxins. In concentrated amounts, mycotoxins can cause skin blistering, nosebleeds, asthma symptoms, or chest pains, among other things. In extreme situations, they can even cause shock and death.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for a mold allergy, but there are ways to reduce the symptoms. While a change in diet and simple over the counter drugs can help relieve your pain, it is important to try and avoid mold whenever possible. Indoor environments may contain high levels of mold and POOR INDOOR AIR QUALITY, and since we spend 90% of our time indoors, we are very susceptible to it. If you had a roof water leak, mold may be growing behind your walls, especially now that the weather has warmed up.
If you are having problems with allergies and allergy medication doesn’t seem to be clearing it up, or if you notice that your allergies are more severe in a certain indoor environment, have your home or business tested by an independent professional, like INDOOR MICROBIAL SPECIALIST (IMS), to see if mold may be the culprit. Once the source of mold is pinpointed, IMS can help you by developing a mold remediation protocol plan. It is important that the testing company does not also do remediation because of the inherent conflict of interest. In such a case, you may be setting yourself up for inflated bills and unnecessary repairs.
