Mold Damage Still A Risk Leading To Lawsuits: Building Cleaning Services Advises On Quick Remedying

LOS ANGELES, CA: Building Cleaning Services (BCS) (http://buildingcleaningservices.net), a mold removal company based in Los Angeles, concurs with environmental law experts that “Mold contamination has become an increasing problem in homes, offices, and other indoor places across the United States.” BCS advises employers and landlords to be alert to mold in office buildings and dwellings and to address it quickly to avoid potential litigation.

On March 11, 2013, a San Diego Superior Court Judge John Meyer approved a settlement of $575,000 in a mold exposure lawsuit brought by a family of 4, including 3 young girls who were exposed to mold, water damage, dust mites and moldy smells in their former rented apartment.

“Mold can cause a lot of health problems to people” and because of this, “many different laws have been passed, which protect the rights of people in case of mold contamination,” according to one law firm.

The National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) reports that at least seven states have enacted mold legislation, including California. At one point, Law journal articles estimated there were about 10,000 mold cases nationwide.

BCS is renowned for taking the worry out of mold concerns and comes highly recommended (yelp link). It says a quick resolution to mold could prevent litigation from mold leading to health risks.

The California Toxic Mold Protection Act of 2001 was enacted to address increasing concerns regarding health effects from exposure to indoor molds.
