Mold is most likely to grow in a moist atmosphere, therefore it is common for mold to appear in your home after a flood or as leak. Mold old is expected to appear in moist areas, thus action should be taken immediately after it begins to grow to prevent the fungus from spreading. Mold can cause allergic reactions such as, watery eyes, runny nose and coughing. The best way to prevent mold from occurring is by controlling the moisture in your home. Molds are not limited to growing on one particular surface; mold can grow on your walls, floors, carpets, appliances, and furniture. A way to control the moisture in your home is by recognizing some common sources such as indoor plumbing leaks, humidifiers, flooding, or even wet clothes drying inside the home.

Community Fourth of July Parade in Poland, OH Our fleet in the parade lineup during the downpour

On Friday, June 30th Poland celebrated Independence day with the local community. There were many festivities to enjoy that went on for two days. It all started with the annual Strawberry Festival at the Poland Presbyterian Church. The church has held the festival since 1950 which brings money to the youth groups so they can do mission trips and other events.

At 7pm on Friday the Fireman’s Parade started down Youngstown-Pittsburgh Road where kids collected candy. Before the parade started, at approximately 6:50 pm it began to downpour and continued to rain for the whole parade. We walked the parade in the rain handing out candy to the kids who toughed out the downpour. Weather it’s rain or shine we are there for you! We had a great time and were happy to see the dedicated families out there celebrating Independence Day with us in the rain! See you next year!
