SICK BUILDING SYNDROME
refers to an alarming trend among office workers who experience acute illness that researchers believe is linked toxins in the air supply of a building. Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) has been documented across the country and typically involves a large number of building workers or residents who experience ill health effects while working or living in the building. Lawyers across the country have successfully represented people adversely affected by SBS. Medical problems caused by toxic MOLD range from respiratory ailments - stuffy nose, itchy throat, wheezing, shortness of breath - to more usual complaints of ear infection, asthma, and bronchitis.
Many of the medical conditions are difficult to link directly with MOLD exposure because they manifest themselves as chronic problems Some people react more quickly to contaminants than others do, especially infants or people predisposed to chemical sensitivity.

Occupational Safety and Health Administration, estimated that as many as 1/3 of Americans work in buildings that are contain air quality problems & contaminants, including molds & bacteria.
Sick Buildings take many forms, for example, in Massachusetts, there have been lawsuits regarding the air quality at the Suffolk County Courthouse in Boston. The problem is believed to have arisen from defective weatherproofing which was improperly applied inside the building. Also in Boston at Brigham & Womens Hospital, Doctors, nurses and patients were adversely affected by latex released from surgical gloves and other medical supplies stored into the hospital. In downtown Boston, the Registry of Motor Vehicles workers became ill as a result of mineral wool fibers apparently released by fireproofing.
There are believed to be many causes of sick building syndrome including mold. Many of the conditions leading the the problem are a result of negligent design and maintenance.
The primary causes of Sick Building Syndrome are: poor ventilation, little air movement, excessive humidity, airborne pollution, and mold and mildew contamination. The building industry in the last two decades has designed buildings that have efficient ways of holding air inside a structure to save on air conditioning costs. Unfortunately the trapped air is often not filtered properly or circulated. The buildings are tightly sealed, but often lack adequate ventilation, leading to moisture buildup.The air control system can become invaded by mold spores leading to a rash of Sick Building Syndrome.
There is a branch of medicine called Clinical Ecology that studies people who are acutely sensitive to environmental toxins such as mold. Clinical Ecology views people with allergies as being poisoned, and acceptance in the scientific community is growing. These doctors speculate that hypersensitivity arises from toxins poisonous to everyone - but most people never know it, because either they have a reduced sensitivity or insufficient exposure.
There have been numerous cases in recent years of dozens of people in buildings around the country becoming ill from unknown or poorly understood airborne toxins.

Stachybotyrs, Fusarium, Aspergillus, and Penicillium can cause memory loss, joint paint, headaches, fatigue, and depression. Aflavatoxin B from Aspergillus Flavus mold is one of the most potent cancer causing agents and can adversely affect pulmonary macrophage production.
Mold toxins are dangerous and can cause cancer, and suppress the immune system, damage the liver, lungs, and other organs. Some toxins are mutagenic and can actually change the genetic code resulting in birth defects Sensitization to Mold Individuals react differently to mold exposure.
There is no set dose/time formula or relationship. In addition, in some individuals repeat exposure can cause an increasingly adverse reaction. It is best to avoid mold exposure or to use the proper PPE (such as the proper fit tested mold rated cartridged respirator) and to get a mold problem correctly promptly.
Never let water stand without without cleanup within 24-48 hours or to let high humidity levels go unchecked. Remember, the cause of the moisture intrusion must be fixed or the problem will recur.
Tips we can give you after a flood
1.Dry everything out.
2.Do not touch any possible visual mold.
3.Call us= 713 360-8255 or 936-525-7609
4.We will do indoor air quality sampling and full mold inspection.
5.We take samples to microbiology lab.
6.Test results available in 24 to 48 hours.
7.We write a full report on the lab results on how to clean the home or building properly based on the mold test results. Many times home owners or building owners can clean the air themselve but if professionals are needed I will write a Mold Remediation Specification for them to follow.
8.Follow up sampling of the air after clean up is completed and lab testing to be sure the mold spore counts are low. Our families health is worth quite a bit especially after numerous doctor visits with no results.
Did you know a simple indoor air quality inspection and microbiology testing could find the cause of sneezing, headaches, coughing, or just that sense of not quite feeling right. Many of our clients mention that when they are at home they feel bad but once they leave the home they feel better and returning home they feel bad again.
This also holds true for people going to work once they get to work they feel bad then leave the office and feel better. We will do a full assessment of the home or office looking for any signs of indoor air contaminents or mold spores. Next we do air sampling by using an air pump that literally pulls in the air and traps these contaminants. We take these spore trap samples to a microbiologist for testing and checking for over twenty different forms of mold and allergens. We will then forward the test results to you via email and review the findings with you and a course of remediation or clean up.
If found early enough cleaning and disinfecting is easy with most homeowners able to do this themselves. The tricky thing about indoor air quality testing is the things we do not see in the air that can hurt us. Stachybotrys toxic mold or as it is called black mold of course will leave signs of it's presence but many more molds just stay in the air.
Petri dishes are available at Lowes and Home Depot but they will not tell you what type mold is present nor will they tell you how much is in the air.
We are in the business of trying to make our clients feel better when they don't know which way to turn after trying numerous medications and many doctor visits.
Complete Mold inspection, indoor air quality sampling, microbiology testing, and full report including remediation specification should be a part of any real estate transaction. Normally we can have your inspection done and the test results available within 48-72 hours or sooner upon request.
We handle all residential inspections, apartments, condominiums, commercial buildings, offices, hospitals, hotels, and motels with no job being too small or too large. Many of our calls are from realtors, buyers, and sellers trying to make a real estate transaction and mold spots are detected. Normally if this is caught early enough it is not a big deal we sample it, test it, and report how to clean it properly.
Our company is a totally independant third party indoor air quality inspection company which means we have no vested interest in repairs or clean up. If cleaning is needed by a professional company we will give you a name of a remediation company to clean and disinfect as needed per our reporting. So this means you are protected from companies that do the inspection, testing, and repairs which usually means thousands of dollars of unneeded repairs or cleaning costs.
We have over 15 years expertise in moisture inspections, indoor air quality inspections, and mold inspections. We are a member the Better Business Bureau having been in business as All Stucco and Mold Inspections Inc. since 1997.
Heavy rains have inundated many parts of Texas and Houston is no exception. Rain has caused extensive damage to people’s homes, schools and businesses. Historic rains caused widespread flooding & brought many parts of southeast Texas to a stop.
More than 50 inches of rain were reported in some Houston areas. With the ground already waterlogged, all of this rain caused extensive damage to people's homes, schools, and businesses. The destruction has prompted Governor Gregg Abbott to include more than 54 counties in his emergency disaster declaration.
Once the floodwaters finally recede, area residents had the daunting task of cleaning and drying out their properties.
People are being warned that standing water and wet materials are a breeding ground for microorganisms such as endotoxin, viruses, bacteria and mold. Flooding can also introduce chemical pollutants into the home. Many of these contaminants can become airborne during cleanup and rebuilding efforts. If inhaled, they could cause disease or trigger asthma and allergic reactions in some people.
It’s vital for Houston residents to understand that it can take time to thoroughly dry out their properties.
