PRLog - Nov. 12, 2012 - BEACH HAVEN, N.J. -- Recent flooding in New York and New Jersey has caused power outages, disrupted train services and flooded homes.  Many of these flood damages properties will be prone to a host of environmental nightmares.

As the floodwaters begin to recede, many New York and New Jersey residents of flood damaged properties will come to the realization that a variety of environmental contamination issues including mold, bacteria, asbestos, chemical and sewage contaminations may be contaminating their property.  The bacteria E. coli can make individuals extremely sick and certain types may even cause death while fecal coliforms are used as an indicator that additional pathogens may be present.  Other waterborne diseases commonly associated with fecal contamination include dysentery, hepatitis A and other dangerous diseases. Fortunately many of the water damaged properties can be saved with proper and extensive water extraction and mold remediation and prevention techniques.

"To ensure the return to a safe environment, many of these flooded properties will need environmental testing to determine if mold, bacteria, asbestos, sewage and chemical contaminants to name the least are now present in these properties." States Mark Stern, President of NAL East Environmental Services.  "Mold activity thrives in warm moist environments and that is precisely what many homeowners may find on their walls and ceilings and in the wall cavities that they can’t see that have been water damaged.  The moisture and wet building materials from flooding can lead to mold growth in as short as 24 hours causing Indoor Air Quality problems."

NAL East Environmental Services would like to remind people of the importance of hiring a certified professional who can help provide an unbiased assessment of your property for mold.  Many people provide mold assessment services, however many of them may be unqualified.
