Flood Victims In New York and New Jersey Should Expect Mold Problems
Recent Flooding Expected to Create Environmental Nightmare for Many
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."
