All the rain and the humidity means an increased chance for mold growing in your home.
Al David with Emergency Restoration out of Troy has been keeping busy these last few weeks, receiving calls for mold removal. He says part of the issues is overflowing storm drains in basements.
“The water has no place to go, and you see a lot of the city trucks out on the road and the guys are working hard to pump the water out,” said David.
That water can turn into mold which can play a big role in your health.
“Respiratory, we deal a lot with asthmatic conditions that bring into a pulmonary affect as well as heart conditions, stress, things of that nature that create an environment for someone that's consistently having problems breathing,” said Tyler Lenling, Vice President of TEK, where they test mold.
David says getting rid of the mold can cost anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars.
