Toxic Mold !
Mold Toxicity is the excessive accumulation of mold mycotoxins in the brain and body.
Hidden mold is always present in water damaged buildings. Most of the time, we are unaware that mold trapped behind the shower tile or above the ceiling tile is producing harmful mycotoxins.
Toxic mold exposure claims can be divided into several categories. The first is toxic mold growth in the home as a result of water intrusion into the home due to construction or design defects. The second would be toxic mold growth caused by unforeseen incidents, such as burst water pipes or damage caused by a storm. The excessive moisture can cause the growth of toxic mold.
People with poor immune systems, serious allergies or severe asthma are more susceptible to lung infections or upper-respiratory infections from exposure; however, the highest risk is to infants. Babies breathing toxic gases are vulnerable to pulmonary hemorrhage, which in most cases is fatal.
Extensive removal of gravely affected areas is most often your best option when the saturation has deteriorated to beyond the hopeless. At that point, you might consider remodeling certain areas after they have been opened for remediation. The reasoning is that, at the point where you have addressed the toxic mold syndrome, you could be down to a lot of bare studs with an air handling system that is in need of complete upgrading. We have been through this numerous times with our clients.
