RAIN, WATER DAMAGE AND MOLD: BUILDING CLEANING SERVICES SAYS TO BE ALERT TO POTENTIAL RISKS

LOS ANGELES, CA: Building Cleaning Service (BCS) (http://buildingcleaningservices.net), a highly respected and recommended mold removal service based in Los Angeles said that recent rains have made buildings susceptible to water damage and mold. The company reminds Californians that the California Toxic Mold Protection Act of 2001 recognizes that health effects from mold exposure occur through allergic reactions, infection, irritation of mucous membranes, or toxicity.

While people need to be alert to mold contamination, BCS said expeditious and expert remediation (removal) of the problem can help prevent health problems that can ensue from mold. BCS takes the worry out of the mold removal process with clients’ questions fully answered and assistance going above the norm.

A Toxic Mold Protection Act reports the following:

  • “Nonallergic persons exposed to extensive mold growth may experience eye, nose, or throat irritation leading to symptoms similar to ‘hay fever,’ that is, reddened or itchy eyes, runny nose, nasal congestion, cough, or sore throat.”
  • “Currently there is insufficient scientific information to determine if inhalation of fungal particles may also cause systemic toxic effects in humans. Inhabitants of damp or moldy buildings have reported nonspecific symptoms, such as fatigue, headache, memory problems, nosebleed, body aches, and fevers.”
  • “Despite our incomplete understanding of how health problems develop in damp or moldy buildings, there is sufficient scientific evidence linking mold exposure with the adverse effects described above to recommend that people not live or work in buildings with visible mold growth or persistent moldy odor.”
