Avoiding the second wave of Sandy Storm

In response to the urgent needs and public attention to health and safety concerns related to Superstorm Sandy clean-up and other natural disasters, this conference addressed concerns by many home owners, volunteers, NGOs, contractors and consultants. The Fungal Research Group Foundation, Inc., Albany, New York, brought together international and national experts to the people in the Tri-State Area (New York, New Jersey and Connecticut) and others.

Many people are affected by flooding, icing and wind storm effects to their homes, businesses, public buildings (schools, library, hospitals, homes for the elderly, etc.) that result in structural damage and unsanitary conditions, including growth of atypical molds. Any place affected by rain or snow, flooding from rivers or the sea, is vulnerable. We reviewed best practices and new technology to promote safe and effective flood and mold remediation, restoration and preservation of valuable items. We discussed what has been learned from past experiences with natural disasters as it relates to bioaerosols including mold, bacteria, bio-toxins and other recognized hazards.
