Even after weeks of cleanup, the effects of Hurricane Sandy are still being felt up and down the East Coast. As the plaster, drywall, glass and other debris are removed, a new problem arises…Mold! It is a problem felt by many home and business owners from Maryland to New York and everywhere in between. And because many people were forced from their property as a result of Sandy, they were unable to quickly resolve flooding issues.
“At this time, because of the length of time that things have been wet, those things (furniture, carpeting and other belongings) need to be disposed of — and always inventory everything for insurance purposes,” said Pete Duncanson of ServiceMaster.
Mold takes just 72 hours to infect your home, damaging everything from drywall to carpets, furniture, and whatever other porous materials it comes in contact with. And the longer these issues are left unresolved, the worst the mold infestation will become.
Do you have a mold problem as a result of Hurricane Sandy? Remember, just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean mold isn’t living in your walls, under your carpet or in your attic. The best way to detect mold is its musty, earthly smell. If you notice this smell, contact your local mold remediation company as soon as possible.
