Midwest Facing Chemical, Mold and Sewage Contamination Issues after Flooding


EMSL Analytical offers testing solutions for residential and commercial properties devastated by flooding.

In what is being called the second 500 year flood to hit the Midwest in less than two decades thousands of property owners are now faced with dealing with the aftermath. Record flooding has affected countless residential properties and all types of commercial properties from grain elevators to university libraries.

As the waters recede and property owners are allowed to venture back into their homes and businesses many are greeted by damaged properties and ruined belongings. Depending on the extent of the damage some properties will likely be a complete lose, while others may be saved by proper and extensive remediation techniques.

Properties flooded not only have to deal with water damage issues, but also environmental concerns ranging from mold growth, sewage contamination and chemical contaminants. EMSL Analytical, one of the nations leading environmental testing laboratories, has already witnessed a spike in calls from property owners and environmental consultants from the area.

“We have geared up our corporate laboratory and our 30 other regional testing facilities and service centers to be able to offer all of the microbial, sewage indicator, and chemical tests that will be called upon to rebuild the devastated areas,” reported Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President at EMSL Analytical. “In addition, EMSL’s Products Division has stocked all the necessary testing equipment and supplies to handle the environmental consultants’ product needs to help these communities test properties so they can begin to rebuild their lives,” Frasca continued.

EMSL has been offering testing services following natural and manmade disasters since its inception in 1981. For more information on testing services and products provided by EMSL please call (800) 220-3675, visit or email
