ENVIRONMENTAL ATTORNEY JOINS IAC2 ADVISORY BOARD

Nationally renowned environmental lawyer Randall Weiner has accepted a position on IAC2’s Advisory Board.  Mr. Weiner has been practicing environmental law for over 20 years.  He has developed an expertise in air, water and land pollution, representing individuals and environmental groups.  He has obtained numerous court orders protecting people impacted by pollution, including a $12 million settlement from ASARCO, Incorporated on behalf of the residents of Globeville.  He was also the “Garbage Barge” attorney, obtaining three injunctions to halt the barge in New York, thereby highlighting the garbage crisis and the necessity for recycling in 1987.  We are very pleased to welcome Randall Weiner to IAC2’s Advisory Board.

EVERY HOME SHOULD BE TESTED FOR MOLD

According to PRO-LAB millions of homes across America have hidden water leaks that are promoting mold growth that can expose homeowners to mold spores. Mold has a potential to cause health problems like allergies, irritation (to lungs, eyes, skin, throat, nose) and are potentially toxic. Inhaling and touching mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals and normally healthy individuals may become sensitive to mold after exposure.

The EPA states that, “It is important to take precautions to limit your exposure to mold and mold spores. Avoid breathing in mold or mold spores”. The EPA also recommends that if you suspect you have a hidden mold problem you should consider hiring an experienced professional to avoid exposure to potentially massive doses of mold spores.

Mold damages what it grows on. The longer it grows the more damage it can cause. If there is a mold problem in your home, you should clean up the mold promptly. Mold can be hidden, growing on the water from a hidden leak, and can develop into a potentially large problem if not caught in time.

Testing your home on a regular basis is a prudent way to prevent small problems from growing into a costly and unhealthy situation, and always avoid exposing yourself and others to mold.
