Mold in the Home
While there are over a million different types of mold, most people experience nothing more than mild allergic reactions to most of them. However, there are two molds – known as Stachybotrys and Memnoniella – that can cause serious reactions, and in extreme cases, even death.
If you or someone you know has been exposed to a toxic mold, consider contacting a personal injury lawyer who can help you receive compensation for your suffering. For more information and a free consultation, contact Stepleton Dugan, LLC today by calling 513-321-7733.
Exposure to molds over an extended period of time may cause the following symptoms:
- Nasal congestion
- Itchy eyes
- Memory loss
In people with weakened immune systems, such as children and the elderly, mold may cause more serious reactions, such as a lung infection. In these cases, you should seek immediate medical care.
The harmful molds are black, making them easier to identify. If you suspect a toxic mold in your home, contact your land lord and ask them to take a sample for testing. If they refuse to investigate the situation, they may be liable for any damages you and your family sustain.
