Flooding Brings Black Mold to Metro Detroit

The heavy rainfall that recently drenched Metro Detroit brought with it one typical result: Flooding.

Especially flooding in numerous people’s basements.

That’s a problem for more than the décor. It turns the room into a likely breeding ground for the dangerous substance known as “black mold.”

A physician who’s spent 40 years treating problems related to black mold, Dallas-based Dr. Alfred Johnson, tells WDET’s Quinn Klinefelter the substance poses a true health concern.
