A single mother of three in the Ottawa area bought a home several years ago and moved in with her family. Eighteen months later, they were all ill and she began to investigate the cause.What she found was nothing short of horrific – they were being sickened by a widespread contamination of toxic mold. In fact, three different strains were found after an extensive investigation.
The unfortunate lady’s story gets worse. The sellers subsequently filed for bankruptcy and listed her as a creditor, leaving her with no way to seek restitution. She moved and filed for bankruptcy.
Luckily, this lady’s story does have a happy ending now, four years later, when a Toronto based non-profit organization is helping her out and now she’s again a proud homeowner.
It’s a nightmare for any new homeowner. The house looks great, it passes the inspection and it’s only months later – after exposure to mold spores – that symptoms begin to appear.
Those symptoms can include:
· Chronic eye, nose and throat irritation
· Flu-like symptoms
· Difficulty breathing
· And much more
Mold may present itself where you don’t see it or expect it, including:
· Attics and crawlspaces
· Carpeting (particularly in the basement)
· Inside walls
· Around windows
