TORONTO — With the spring melt currently happening, many residents throughout the U.S. face the unwanted visitor known as mold, according to a press release.

"At Planet People, we instruct consumers to follow the ''Five Ds'' to mitigate mold issues: Detect it, dry it, ditch it, deactivate it and dehumidify it," Green added.
