Florida Faces Flooding and Mold after Tropical Storm Fay


EMSL Analytical offers testing solutions for residential and commercial properties devastated by water and wind damage.

In one of the major weather events to hit Florida this year Tropical Storm Fay has been crisscrossing the state causing catastrophic flooding. In many areas property owners are now faced with dealing with the aftermath. Record flooding in some parts of the state has countless properties from homes to schools and businesses under feet of water.

As the storm passes and flood waters recede, property owners are venturing back into their homes and businesses. Many are greeted by damaged properties and ruined belongings. Depending on the extent of the damage and flooding some properties will need extensive remediation to salvage the property and prevent microbial contamination problems brought on by Fay.

Properties flooded not only have to deal with water damage issues, but also environmental and health concerns from mold and in some cases sewage contamination. EMSL Analytical, one of the nations leading environmental testing laboratories, has already observed an increase in calls from property owners and environmental consultants from the area as the cleanup already begins in parts of the state.

“We have geared up our corporate laboratory and 4 laboratories and service centers in Florida to be able to offer all of the microbial services and products needed for the devastated areas,” reported Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President at EMSL Analytical. “Some areas are witnessing flooding of up to five feet which has caused extensive damage to property and belongings,” 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
