Mold needs a couple of things to grow. It needs water, it needs cellulose. Everything we build our homes out of, almost, is cellulose-based. (Attorney Alex Robertson, specialist in toxic mold cases, commenting in 2001 on the toxic mold in Erin Brockovich’s house)
Erin Brockovich, known for the movie that bears her name lives in a million dollar home filled with slimy black mold called Stachybotrys.
Stachy can cause a runny nose, runny eyes, headaches, sinus congestion, cough, fatigue, and neurological problems.
Brockovich suffered from these symptoms for more than a year before a contractor discovered that her house was infected with stachy.
To date, Brockovich has spent nearly $600,000 removing the mold. To learn more about her issues with mold, click here.
