Flooding Adds To Mold Threat

Flood damage from Hurricane Isabel could top $1 billion, much of which is uninsured. But much more damage to property values could be inflicted by mold created by water damage related to the storm, according to Kathi Giaramita, a water damage restoration and mold expert at ServiceMaster Clean here.

This means that property owners need to act immediately to save homes and businesses from water damage that could lead to mold and affect the condition and value of the property, she said.
