Mold: The Next Problem

FORT PLAIN -- As residents of Fort Plain continue flood recovery efforts, a new problem is creeping up on them.

Mold.

Residences that were flooded a few weeks ago are still damp and mold is growing, and some people are still living in their homes.

Many homeowners have tried saturating the walls with bleach, only to see the mold return.  Volunteers from downstate say it should come as no surprise.  One of those volunteers from Respond and Rebuild out of Queens says the most important thing in mold remediation is to dry everything out.  They brought up their industrial heaters and dehumidifiers and are helping residents any way they can.  If you'd like to contact them, you can call 718-714-8173 or email at info@respondandrebuild.org.
