Are You Concerned About Mold or Poor Indoor Air Quality?
Do you have a concern that you or someone you know has been exposed to something in a home or other building that is causing illness? In some cases, the cause may be mold or other consequences of water damage, such as dust mite amplification, or bacteria. However, only a qualified physician can make the determination of whether or not the indoor environment is making someone ill. Accordingly, it is important to document the problem (including the possibility of testing) and be evaluated by a qualified physician to determine what, if any, symptoms are related to a specific exposure.

What is Mold?
Mold is part of the fungi kingdom. Mold is everywhere in normal, back ground levels. However, when excessive moisture is present, mold can amplify to abnormal levels. Essentially, mold is by definition a moisture problem. Some of the many molds that are known to amplify in indoor environments when excessive moisture is present include: Stachybotrys, aspergillus, penicillium, and trichoderma. The San Diego mold attorneys at LaFave & Rice are knowledgeable about the different types of molds and how to help you interpret test results.
