LOS ANGELES, CA: Building Cleaning Services (BCS) (http://buildingcleaningservices.net), a mold removal company based in Los Angeles, is warning renters to watch for signs of mold related health problems, so they can avoid the fate of a Bay area family. According to a recent KTVU article, a Danville, California family is trying to move on from a rented house they say has made them sick and put them in limbo as they seek to have the home cleared of toxic mold that permeates the residence.

City officials have restricted access to the million-dollar home because of the mold contamination. Municipal inspectors found toxic mold spores known as penicillium and aspergillas in high concentrations. The family claims the environment made their kids sick for months with coughs, sore throats, nosebleeds, and wheezing. The couple say they can only make short visits inside and cannot bring their four children inside, and cannot take their possessions out of the home.

The couple discovered the mold problem only after numerous doctor visits, when they were unable to find the reason for health issues experienced by their children. The family had an inspection of the attic, where heavy amounts of black mold were found caked on the beams, apparently from a leaky roof.

Kathy Liverance, co-owner of Building Cleaning services, stated: “Renters need to be alert to instances of respiratory health issues, especially repeating or unexplained issues, and know that these could be related to mold. The sooner such mold infestations are handled, the better, to prevent the concentrations of mold in the air reaching dangerous levels. We work with property owners to quickly assist their renters in such a situation.”
