There are many places to learn about mold infestation and how mold can directly affect your health. A vast amount of misinformation exists on the internet concerning the health effects of mold, the prescribed methods for eliminating mold, and frustrated that no one believes or understands the extent to which this silent and unseen microbe can negatively impact your health and social life. Mold colonies infesting your home and releasing thousands of microscopic spores that contaminate your furniture, your clothes, and the air that you breathe can be frightening. When dealing with a mold issue, it can lead to stress, anxiety, sleepless nights, and other adverse health effects.
A home should be a place of sanctuary, but when living in a mold-infested space it can feel more like a prison. Relocating can be costly. A licensed and competent remediation company can be hard to find and very expensive. In addition, the remediation process may not completely eliminate your mold problem.
Many insurance companies exclude coverage for mold-related injuries. Negligent landlords and real estate brokers will often refuse to acknowledge the existence of the mold and in turn offer compensation for your misery.Most lawyers avoid mold litigation, making it difficult to find a law firm with the knowledge to successfully handle your case.
At the Mold Firm, we focus exclusively on mold litigation! We have developed an effective and detailed approach for representing our client’ mold claims. Our team has the experience, knowledge, and compassion to help you overcome the devastating effects of your mold infestation.

Mold problems can cause property damage and adverse physical and psychological effects. In many cases, a water intrusion or leak occurs, perhaps as the result of a pipe bursting, and within 24-48 hours, the mold begins to incubate (grow). Even if your landlord or plumber has quickly repaired the intrusion and used fans to dry the area, mold may have already begun growing. Due to its small size, mold can penetrate the same small areas as dust particles, and, initially, you may not even notice the growth. Moreover, even if you could locate the mold growth, common cleaning agents, like bleach, will only eliminate certain species of mold.
Water damage to your home
Don’t let water damage turn to black mold which is harmful to your health.If you are unsure of whether you have a mold problem or suspect that a prior mold problem was not properly remediated, then you should contact a licensed mold or environmental expert to examine the property.
In the case of an infested apartment or leased property, if the landlord refuses to adequately address the mold problem, either through professional remediation or offering the tenant an alternative dwelling place, you should contact your county’s Code Enforcement Office and ask a Code Enforcement Officer to come inspect your property. If the Code Enforcement Officer suspects that there is an extensive mold problem, then the officer will have one of the county’s health inspectors examine the property. If the health inspector finds that there is a significant mold infestation, then he/she will likely recommend that the landlord either relocate the tenant, professionally remediate the property, or release the tenant from his/her lease. It also helps if you provide the health inspector with a copy of your professional mold inspection report, if you have one, or have your mold inspection expert contact the health inspector to discuss the infestation.
