Asbestos and Your Health

Asbestos is commonly found in the insulation of homes and can be inhaled if damaged. It was commonly used because of its resistance to fire in addition to being able to adequately insulate a home. Older homes constructed between the 1940’s and 1970’s could possibly contain asbestos. This should be removed and replaced with another insulator that is less harmful to your health.

When is Asbestos Harmful?

Whenever a material containing asbestos becomes damaged, it is dangerous to your health. The fibers if left unharmed will not hurt you. However, if the material becomes damaged it is even possible for asbestos fibers to become released into the air where they can be inhaled.

Finding a Professional Mold Remediation Company

Whenever you are facing a mold problem it is good to bring professionals in to determine the best course of action. Unfortunately, some companies aren’t as qualified as others and won’t do as good of a job. The best way to ensure that this doesn’t happen is to do some research on the mold removal company you’re thinking about hiring.

What Certifications Does the Company Have?

Look up the certifications of the company online or call and ask them to provide you with the documentation. Look up each certification online and see what it is for. This will help you understand how qualified the business is to deal with your situation.

How Many Inspections Have They Performed?

Ask the company how many inspections they’ve performed in the past year. This should give you a good estimate of how much of an expert they are when it comes to dealing with mold. The number should be in the hundreds if it’s a small company, even more if it’s larger.

Make sure that all of the conditions that you agree to with the company are met before you give them the whole payment. Some companies may require partial payment up front, it is important to be careful of companies who ask you to pay the full amount right away. Make sure that all of the mold is completely eliminated and someone has inspected the property after the job is done.

California Renter’s Rights Against Mold

Did you know that there is a new law in California that requires landlords to give written notice to any possible tenants when they know there is mold that exceeds permissible exposure limits? This also includes mold that is causing health problems in tenants as well as hidden or invisible mold.

What Are My Responsibilities?

As a renter you must maintain your apartment on a clean and sanitary level at all times. This means consistently cleaning and running fans in your apartment to allow it to air out. If there are any problems you are also responsible for reporting them to the landlord as soon as possible.

What Are My Landlord’s Responsibilities?

Your landlord has to let you know if there is mold present in the apartment. If you have health problems due to mold that you are unaware of then you need to let your landlord know immediately. Go to the doctor and keep track of all of your medical records from this point forward. Your landlord can be held accountable for any health related costs due to the mold.

California’s Repair and Deduct Law

In California if the landlord has not responded in a timely manner to the written notification of the mold problem, then the tenant is allowed to not pay rent until the problem is fixed. The tenant is also allowed to file a lawsuit to recover any damages caused to their environment or their health. If this is the course of action that you choose to seek, it is best to find a lawyer to talk to about what your next steps should be.

Have Your Landlord Pay for Mold Remediation

If there is a mold problem on your premises, Water Damage Zone can eradicate it before it becomes more of a headache for everyone involved. If your landlord doesn’t elect to pay for mold remediation you can also bring them to court and force them to solve the problem. By knowing companies that help with mold remediation you can also recommend them to owners as a solution. Water Damage Zone works with businesses to solve money and time for everyone.
