EMLab P&K Increases Mold Testing & Bacteria Testing Capacity to Support Northeast U.S. After Floods

EMLab P&K has added local and overall mold testing and bacteria testing capacity to support the increased need for environmental testing in Connecticut, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania due to flooding.

 
PRLog - Mar. 14, 2011 - SAN BRUNO, Calif. -- Severe storms battered the Northeast and caused flooding in some states including Connecticut, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Residents may be struggling with sewage back-ups and flooded basements and some neighborhoods have been evacuated.

In response to flooding in the Northeast, EMLab P&K has added local and overall mold testing and bacteria testing capacity, including weekend and emergency staffing, to support the increased need for environmental testing. As the nation's leading environmental testing laboratory, EMLab P&K maintains a strong presence in the East Coast with AIHA accredited labs at Cherry Hill, New Jersey and at Fairfax, Virginia. Through TestAmerica’s network of laboratories, EMLab P&K also has sample drop-off locations in Shelton, CT, Edison, NJ, King of Prussia, PA, Pittsburgh, PA, and Mt. Laurel, NJ (near South Jersey).
   
As property owners return to their homes and businesses, the buildings may appear to be irreparable, but some buildings may be salvageable through remediation. In addition to losing personal possessions, property owners must deal with the potential for bacterial contamination, mold growth, sewage contamination and other environmental health concerns caused by flooding and water damage. After remediation is completed, property owners should have a qualified IAQ professional perform mold testing and bacteria testing to confirm the remediation was successful. Property owners who need a qualified IAQ professional can contact EMLab P&K for a referral.

"EMLab P&K has been staying informed about the flooding situations in the Northeast. We have also teamed up with TestAmerica to offer a wide range of environmental testing lab services to help the states address emerging health concerns quickly," said Belinda Vega, EMLab P&K's President. "During a critical time like this, our proactive approach has an immediate and positive impact with the lab services we are able to provide. As always, clients can expect and trust the quality and accuracy of our lab analysis."

Environmental professionals who plan to assist property owners and government agencies in areas affected by flooding should have proper equipment and sampling supplies. EMLab P&K's Products Division offers the professional testing equipment, sampling supplies for mold and bacteria testing, and personal protective equipment.
