When Water Damage Occurs Act Fast to Prevent Microbial Contamination


EMSL Analytical supplies remediation and drying equipment to help properties and prevent mold growth after water incursions.

Westmont, NJ, September 2nd, 2009

Major floods affected parts of the Midwest in early August causing extensive water damage to many structures. According to a top Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) official in the area, “if you had flood waters in your home, take the time to clean thoroughly so problems don’t arise later that affect your home or your health.”

Although damage from water alone can be costly, once mold begins to grow in a property the costs and repercussions can quickly escalate. In most indoor environments it takes as little as 24 to 48 hours for mold to begin to grow on wet building materials.

Due to this fact it is important to immediately stop the source of any water or excessive humidity and to dry the property as quickly as possible. Wet materials need to be addressed right away.

EMSL Analytical, one of the largest environmental testing laboratories and environmental equipment providers, has a complete array of tools for professionals and property owners following water incursions. Products include drying fans, personal protective equipment, biocides and moisture meters. EMSL also has equipment warehouses on both coasts so products can be shipped quickly and efficiently.

“When proper equipment is put to work right after water damage has occurred this can make a huge difference in the final outcome,” reported Jody Thomason, Director of Products Division for EMSL Analytical. “It is imperative to begin properly drying out a building as quickly as possible to prevent costly microbial contamination,” Thomason continued.
