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.

    In our situation at Harmony Grove Baptist in Canton, when our insurance company was first called, Chad Franklin came soon after they were notified. He was very cordial and told us upfront what he felt that we would have to get to work on right away. The next day the big fans were brought and dehumidifiers were started. After that everyone that we met that came to help us were very caring. They showed their concern as if they were going through the terrible trauma we were. Each person that came to help was very trustworthy and I, myself, felt as if I had found a new friend for life. What a great crew of people working to help us feel better and get the job done. We would like to welcome each member of ServiceMaster to our church anytime. Thank you so much for the service to us. Friends for life.
