PRLog - Dec. 6, 2011 - Palm Desert was sued for 12 million dollars by a homeowner living in Desert Rose. The root of the said suit is the discovery of mold in a home built through the city's affordable housing program. The following are the details of the suit shared by Mold-Removal.
Palm Desert and its redevelopment agency were named defendants in a suit particularly filed by Kathy Seacrist and John McDonald last April. Reportedly, Seacrist purchased a home in Desert Rose in 1997. After ten years, it is said that she and McDonald suffered from various mold symptoms.
The mold discovered in the said house was caused by the improper drainage of the air conditioning and other appliances. And so for the pain and suffering, for the emotional distress, for the property damages and for the medical bills and lost earnings, the two sued Palm Desert for a total of 12 million dollars.
Along with Palm Desert, Civic Center Barrio Housing Corporation was also named as a defendant in the lawsuit.

“In 1997, Kathy Seacrist bought a home in Palm Desert through the city's affordable housing program. Ten years after and she and housemate John McDonald suffered illnesses they claimed caused by toxic mold. Earlier this year, their hunch had been confirmed. And so, the two filed a $12 million suit in April naming Palm Desert and Civic Center Barrio Housing Corporation as defendants.”
“Particularly, mold is said to have caused Kathy and John to suffer from seizures, fever, pains and other mold symptoms. According to them, the growth of mold is caused by the poor drainage for the air conditioning system and other appliances.”

To prevent mold growth, Mold-Removal advised property owners that leaks and drainage problems must be prevented. That's because they are often the sources of moisture that promotes mold presence.
However, if mold is already growing, the site suggests that an effective mold remediation must then be implemented. And to make the process safe as well, it recommends the use of Molderizer. Unlike the conventional mold removal solutions, Molderizer is made of biodegradable ingredients. And so, it poses no chemical-related illnesses.
