The apartment was dirty with mold. Insurance wouldn’t settle. It was A.P. An OMG File.
I was calling to investigate a ‘mold’ problem that turned out to be dirt, soot in fact.
I asked my client why she thought there was mold. She brought out the air quality test report.
As I was reading it, her daughter came in from the other room. She was home sick from school and wearing a face mask.
She had respiratory problems. My hair stood on end.
“When is her medical appointment?” I asked. “Tomorrow” was the answer.
“So when you go see the doctors bring this air quality report and show them theses two words that I’ve underlined here.” So they did.
I called to follow up a week later and asked how the appointment went. Both the mother and daughter, as well as everyone else who lives in that building (8 people), are being sent to see specialists.
Oh yeah the two words; aspegillius penicillii ………(AP)
This is the plural form of aspergillus penicillium. This is a seriously severe group of molds that are toxic to humans and animals.
So if you have any reports or documents that read as if they were latin, have them explained to you. A lab technicians report is only data. It won’t tell you if a condition is serious or what to do about it.
