November 24, 2012 (FPRC) -- Enviro Dangers, mold expert and consultants, is pleased to announce the publication of new advice for those dealing with water damage and related insurance claims following the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy.
For a successful water damage insurance claim, Enviro Dangers recommends in depth mold inspection and removal to deal with toxic mold growth caused by the Hurricane Sandy’s big ocean wave flood surge in New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, and Maryland homes, commercial buildings, churches, and public buildings.
'Toxic mold begins growing after just 24 hours of building material wetness. Exposure to elevated levels of indoor mold growth can cause significant and serious mold-related health problems and illnesses,' advises Phillip Fry, Enviro Dangers co-manager, Certified Environmental Hygienist and author of the new ebook Hurricane Sandy Mold, Germ, & Odor Removal & Prevention.

Here’s how to find and get rid of Hurricane Sandy mold infestations in New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, and Maryland.
1. Read how to do safe and effective mold inspection and testing in each area of the flood-damaged building by following the detailed, step by step advice on the website http://www.buildingmoldinspection.com.
2. If water has entered your house or building, get rid of the water at as soon as possible by the use of water pumps, mopping, drying equipment, dehumidifiers, and big fans that exhaust humid air to the outside through open windows. Avoid the use of electrically-powered items in wet areas to avoid electrocution.
3. If water has soaked ceilings or walls, cut drying holes in multiple areas in such water-soaked areas, e.g., cutting a hole into the bottom of each wall section of your drywall, between the vertical wall studs. Use fans to extract and exhaust moist air outward from the drying holes to speed up the drying process.
4. Use a hand-pumped garden sprayer or a small electric, hand-held sprayer, to spray either boric acid powder or EPA-registered fungicide Tim-Bor on all walls, ceilings, floors, furniture, and furnishings to prevent mold growth and/or to kill already-growing mold growth. Mix one pound of boric acid powder or Tim-Bor per gallon of hot water (hot to dissolve completely the mold prevention product)
5. Use a high output ozone generator (generating at least 14,000 ozone units per hour) four to eight hours in each room or area such as crawl space, basement, attic, garage, and inside heating and cooling equipment and ducts to kill both mold and bacteria infestations that result from Hurricane Sandy.
6. Use do it yourself mold test kits from www.buildingmoldinspection.com/mold_test_kits.htm or the services of a Certified Mold Inspector or Certified Environmental Hygienist for in depth mold inspection and testing of your house or building one week after flooding or water intrusion problems.
7. In rebuilding flood and mold-damaged sections of your home or building, read the steps on how to re-build the damaged areas to prevent future mold growth by visiting: www.buildingmoldinspection.com/construction_mold_prevention.htm.
