How to Treat Mold Infestation

Although there are several types of toxic mold, a common variety in the home is sometimes referred to as "black mold." Greenish-black in color, it can grow on a variety of household surfaces and is common in areas with high moisture. Humans may come into contact with toxic molds through inhalation, skin contact or ingestion.

Suspect mold and fungus anytime there is a water leak in a home, whether it's a roof leak or a damp basement; always think of mold infestation following a flood or plumbing leak, especially if there is a musty odor.
