exposed to the toxic mold. Some of these reactions will include lung tissue damage,
memory loss, and even death.

This may also depend on the chemical sensitivity, genetic disposition, and predisposing
health history.

Exposure to Harmful Mold Is Considered a Health Hazard

Currently, most health organizations consider exposure to this harmful mold a health
risk hazard. Keep in mind that most responses leading to testing, investigations, and
abatement of the toxic mold are due directly to occupant complaints or documented
detrimental health effects.
