Mold can be a serious allergen irritant in Los Angeles County. While molds certainly have their place in environmental niches and are important to the health and well being of many ecosystems, a place lived in or worked in by humans is not one of them.
Symptoms of Mold Allergies:
- Watery Eyes
- Irritated nasal membranes
- Trouble breathing, including sneezing and coughing
- Swollen throats
- Neurological problems
- Chest tightness
- Anaphylactic shock
Toxic molds produce mycotoxins which are serious health risks to both humans and animals in Los Angeles County. If an individual is in an environment contaminated by mold spores and isn’t aware of an allergy, it is possible to have such a severe allergic reaction to mold toxins that death may occur. Death is a rare possibility in relation to mold, but it occurs when the recipient of mold spores goes into anaphylactic shock after experiencing a severe allergic reaction.
Take Care of Mold Remediation in Los Angeles County
Aside from health problems, locations contaminated with mold also present a severe financial risk for property owners and caretakers. Los Angeles County mold remediation can help offset the risks of hazardous contamination by removing the threat and keeping conditions in check. Property values can lower if a severe environmental hazard is associated with the property as the government may require the disclosure on the deed to create a record of disclosure. Property sales and rentals can be impacted.
None of the issues addressed include the fact that should there be negligence in Los Angeles County property cleanup and maintenance such as mold remediation, a lawsuit is a potential financial threat. Litigation is a very real danger in the modern age.
