What was once Hurricane Alex is forecast to continue to drop large amounts of precipitation across parts of Texas and the Houston region. Some coastal areas reported almost 11 inches of rain on Thursday and it is expected to continue through the weekend.

As the waters eventually begin to recede and homes begin to dry from the leaks and flooding, area property owners will begin to venture back into their homes and businesses. Many individuals will discover water damaged structures and soaked belongings. Fortunately many of the water damaged properties can be saved with proper and extensive water extraction and mold remediation techniques if the property owners act swiftly.

The owners of the damaged properties not only have to deal with water issues, but also environmental concerns ranging from mold growth, sewage contamination and chemical contaminants from the flood waters. To ensure a safe environment many of these flooded properties will need environmental testing to determine if mold, bacteria, viruses and chemical contaminants are now present, or growing, in the damaged properties.

EMSL Analytical has prepared their laboratory testing facilities, including the facility located directly in Houston, to help area residents. “We have geared up our local laboratory staff and our other 30 plus regional testing facilities and service centers to be able to offer all of the microbial, sewage indicator and chemical tests that will be needed by victims of Hurricane Alex to ensure they have a safe environment to return to,” reported Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President at EMSL Analytical.

EMSL has been offering environmental testing services following natural and manmade disasters since its inception in 1981. For more information about environmental testing please contact EMSL at (800) 220-3675, visit or email
