Avoiding IAQ Problems after a Flood

When cleaning up after a flood, the indoor air quality in a home or office may appear to be the least of the problems. However, failure to remove contaminated materials and to reduce moisture and humidity can present serious long-term health risks. Standing water and wet materials are a breeding ground for microorganisms, such as viruses, bacteria and mold. They can cause disease, trigger allergic reactions and asthma attacks and continue to damage materials long after the flood.
