Should you be concerned about toxic molds? Ask yourself these questions. Are you a homeowner? Are you buying or selling a home? Are you a real estate professional? Are you a landlord? Are you a builder/contractor? Do you or members of your family have respiratory problems? Do you or members of your family suffer from chronic sinus infections or allergies? Has the property experienced leaks, floods, or other water damage? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you need to know the facts about toxic molds!
Mold and mold litigation are such serious issues in this country that many insurance carriers have stopped writing new policies for homeowners, citing the high cost of mold litigation as the primary reason. In 2000 the insurance industry paid out more than $700 million in mold and moisture claims. In 2002, they paid out over $3 billion in mold and moisture intrusion claims. This is just one reason it is essential to have a home surveyed for mold before serious damage occurs.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports, “All molds the potential to cause health effects.” Some of the health effects linked to mold include asthma, chronic allergies, and infections in both children and adults. About 50 million Americans are affected with asthma or allergy sensitivity, of which many are due to mold exposure. The September/October 2000 issue of Newsweek Magazine states “The prevailing medical opinion has been that mold accounted for 6 to 7 % of all chronic sinusitis … we found that it was 93%, the exact opposite.” Serious respiratory problems have been reported in infants exposed to toxic molds.
