Expect Mold Problems Throughout Flooded Northeast Properties

EMSL Testing Lab Offers Solutions for Testing Mold, Bacteria, Asbestos, Sewage Contamination, Chemicals and Contaminated Drinking Water.


Cinnaminson, NJ

Over the past few days, the Northeast part of the United States has been facing flooding issues caused by hurricane Irene.  The Northeast already had flash flooding a little over a week ago that brought rising water tables to many areas.  The floods from hurricane Irene will only cause more wet, musty and flooded basements throughout the area.  As these flood waters recede, there will be a host of potential environmental contamination such as asbestos, bacteria from sewage contamination, chemicals and eventually mold.

“Mold can begin to grow in as little as 24-48 hours after the flooding has occurred”, states Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President of EMSL Analytical, Inc.  “Visible mold is easily seen, however, mold also grows behind walls and in places not so easily visible. For peace of mind, an indoor air quality survey of the property is recommended.  Simply relying on sight and smell is not enough to determine if a mold problem may exist”, he continued.
