Sacramento Mold Damage Lawyer

At the Law Office of Eugene P. Haydu, our Sacramento mold damage attorney has been representing California property owners in construction defect litigation since 1989. Our clients range from investors with commercial property such as apartment complexes, hotels and commercial centers to physicians, accountants and other individuals with high net worth residential property. We also represent owners of single-family homes who have suffered from water damage and mold.

What Causes Mold To Grow?

Sometimes the growth of mold is a result of construction defects that allow water to seep into the house or commercial building. Plumbing leaks, poor landscaping, defective roofs or windows and other problems can fill walls, ceilings, cabinets and other places with moisture.

In addition to water, mold needs correct temperatures and a food source in order to grow. Food sources can include both animal and plant matter found in:

  • Drywall
  • Wallpaper glue
  • Carpet backing
  • Wood studs
  • Gypsum board

Why Is Mold Dangerous?

Besides damaging the property and exuding an unpleasant, musty odor, some mold fungi produce poisonous mycotoxins. If you inhale, ingest or touch these mycotoxins, it can seriously affect your health. Living in a contaminated home can lead to allergies, respiratory disease and other effects. Children, elderly adults and those with weakened immune systems are at particular risk.

Symptoms Of Toxic Mold

Toxic mold symptoms can often appear the same as flu symptoms. They include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Wheezing or coughing
  • Sore throat
  • Respiratory congestion
  • Headaches
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Runny nose
  • Watery eyes

Testing For Mold

If you suspect that your property has been contaminated by mold, you will need a professional assessment by an expert. Our law firm can arrange such an assessment. The mold damage expert will investigate the situation and the source of water intrusion by analyzing the air, sampling the mold, conducting visual inspections and taking other steps.
