Fort Lauderdale Toxic Mold
Fort Lauderdale's warm, humid climate means mold grows relatively easily there. While many kinds of mold are harmless, if unsightly, others can cause severe and chronic health conditions. If you suffer from an illness that could be related to mold exposure, our Fort Lauderdale mold attorneys can help.
Florida Mold Law
Florida laws regarding mold exposure affect landlord-tenant relationships. Tenants in moldy properties can withhold rent until the problem is fixed or pay for mold remediation, then deduct the cost of repairs from their rent.
While Florida does not have laws regarding landlord duties with mold, the state does allow tenants to sue when it was not properly cleaned up in rental properties.
Health Problems Related to Mold Exposure
While only a minority of mold varieties cause health problems in humans, the illnesses and symptoms can be quite severe. If you are exposed to toxic mold, you may experience symptoms such as:
- Sinus problems
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Multiple chemical sensitivity
- Nerve problems
- Difficulty concentrating
- Memory loss
If you suffer from allergies or asthma, you face a greater risk of mold-related illnesses.
What to Expect With Fort Lauderdale Mold Lawsuits
While Florida advocates ways for renters to seek remediation for mold exposure in rental properties, proving that your illness was definitively caused by mold exposure is tricky. Currently, there are no state or federal guidelines for the type or amount of mold exposure that can be harmful. There are no related standards for air quality, and not everyone agrees on the facts regarding toxic mold exposure.
