Mold, mildew makeover at city building

Mold, mildew makeover at city building

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) –

After years of fighting for clean facilities, parents’ voices may finally be heard.

Linda Turner and her daughter Gayle have walked the halls at the Montgomery Therapeutic Recreation Center many times.

Gayle first started swimming there in the 1970’s.

“I have seen the decline over the years. The showers are in really really bad shape,” says Turner.

Just one look at the locker rooms and pool area and you’ll see–mold, mildew and soap scum blanket the walls.

Turner and other parents believe the conditions aren’t healthy for their kids.

“Most of our special needs individuals do have compromised immune systems. It’s really detrimental to them,” adds Turner.

For years, parents have petitioned directors, pleading for renovations.

Small grants only paid for behind the scenes repairs.

“There’s probably nobody more frustrated about this than me,” says Montgomery Parks and Recreation Superintendent, Kay McCreery.

She says a long-awaited $220,000 dollar federal grant allows for much needed renovations to the pool and locker rooms.

“We want to expedite it.”

The locker rooms are expected to get a complete overhaul. That’s where the bulk of the mold and mildew is.  It’s something parents and recreation officials say can’t come soon enough.

“Hang with us a few more months and they’re going to begin to see some real progress that you can in fact see…it won’t be plumbing behind the walls,” adds McCreery.

“Seeing our actions finally coming to fruition is wonderful,” adds Turner.

“The showers will be clean. The pool will be clean,” says Gayle.

It’s a sigh of relief for Linda and Gayle after years of dodging a dirty mess.

Recreation officials hope to start working after summer programs finish. They plan to close parts of the center to speed up the repair process.

Doctors see mold patients for as little as 5 minutes

Imagine having a team of medical providers who handle your care personally, who don’t rush through your appointment so they can see their next patient. The National Treatment Centers for Environmental Disease has a team just like that.

The new high standard in the treatment of environmental illnesses regarding Mold and Mycotoxins is gaining notoriety not only nationally but internationally. The NTCED are leading the way.

The NTCED could see that potential patients had become frustrated with doctors that cram as many appointments as possible to break even financially, which limits time with each patient. Getting rid of stringent time constraints was an appealing choice for patients who needed that extra care and attention.

“Now, Doctors see patients for as little as five minutes,”NTCED said. “And they have to focus on just one problem, even though there may be three or four problems to deal with.”

At the National Treatment Centers for Environmental Disease, appointments last 2 Days

“This is not saying that if you go to a regular physician, you’re getting substandard care,”  National Treatment Centers for Environmental Disease said. “We’re just marketing this as a higher level of service.”

Aflatoxin is a cancer-causing poison produced by certain fungi in or on foods and feeds, especially in field corn and peanuts. They are probably the best known and most intensively researched mycotoxins in the world.

Aflatoxins have been associated with various diseases, such as aflatoxicosis in livestock, domestic animals, and humans throughout the world. Many countries try to limit exposure to aflatoxin by regulating and monitoring its presence on commodities intended for use as food and feed.

The prevention of aflatoxin is one of the most challenging toxicology issues of present time.
