Toxic Mold Issues Often Arise During Construction
Construction issues such as improperly installed flashing or plumbing leaks can cause water intrusion into a building, which encourages the growth of toxic mold. These problems can occur in residential and commercial buildings, regardless of age. Such issues are common and often overlooked.
In addition to threatening the value of the property, certain types of toxic mold can lead to serious illnesses, including respiratory problems, allergies, asthma and skin ailments. These can persist until the cause of the problem, mold caused by water intrusion, is resolved. This is usually accomplished through very costly and extensive remediation efforts. If you are dealing with a mold issue, it is important to obtain legal advice as soon as possible. There can be significant liabilities associated with toxic mold issues. Triangle Law Group can work through these difficult issues with you and provide you with the guidance you need to get the situation resolved.
