California Car Dealership Employees Claim Health Problems from Mold Exposure
LA Testing offers indoor air quality (IAQ) testing services for mold, bacteria and other possible contaminants that could impact indoor air quality (IAQ).
Employees that worked at a Poway, California car dealership have claimed sinus infections, headaches, memory loss and other health symptoms that they state disabled their ability to work. Workers claimed that water damaged building materials allowed mold and other contaminants to harm their health. The workers are currently at odds with the dealership’s management and workers’ compensation insurance provider.
The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology reports that approximately 10 percent of the U.S. population is sensitive to mold. Exposure to airborne mold spores causes countless allergic reactions, asthma attacks, sinus infections and a host of other health problems. The ten percent equates to approximately 30,000,000 people in the United States alone that are susceptible to the negative health effects due to mold exposure.
Mold is a natural part of the environment and can be found all around us, but elevated levels of mold in indoor environments can be a real health threat. Preventing and minimizing its presence can help protect those that are already sensitive to mold exposure. This will also protect those that would otherwise be sensitized by being exposed to elevated levels of mold.
LA Testing, an affiliate of EMSL Analytical, is one of the leading providers of mold and other indoor air quality testing services throughout California. “To prevent cases of worker complaints, and even lawsuits, it is essential to identify what is causing any elevated levels of mold in a work environment,” reported Ben Sublasky, National Director of Client Services for LA Testing and EMSL Analytical. “If water damage has occurred it needs to be remediated as quickly as possible. Affordable air and surface testing can also help determine exposure risks for the building occupants.”
LA Testing has multiple locations across California that provides accurate and rapid IAQ testing solutions. To learn more please visit www.LATesting.com, email info@LATesting.com or call (800) 303-0047.
