Title Charlotte Mold and Bacterial Testing Laboratory Provides Fast Lab Results for Water Damaged Property Assessments
Introduction EMSL Analytical offers mold and bacteria testing for those affected by hurricane damage and flooding.

Charlotte, NC, October 20th, 2016  

Recent flooding along much of the Southeast coast has caused continued destruction for homes and businesses that were hit by Hurricane Matthew. Residents of Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas returned home to find many properties damaged by rain, wind and floodwater.

As residents return, it is important to inspect their properties for signs of water damage. Water damage commonly occurs on exterior walls, ceilings, attics, crawl spaces and around windows, doors and chimneys. Within 24 to 48 hours, wet building materials can allow mold to grow. Flood waters may also contain chemicals and microorganisms that can pose a health threat to building occupants.

“After a flood, it is imperative to dry the property out quickly to prevent microbial growth,” said Joseph Frasca, Senior Vice President of Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “Property owners can begin by removing wet flooring and setting up blowers to assist with drying to prevent mold and bacteria growth. Flood waters often contain hazards such as sewage and chemical contamination. Identifying any possible contaminants before repair or rebuilding can reduce exposure to harmful mold, bacteria or chemicals.”

EMSL Analytical, Inc. has a laboratory located at 376 Crompton Street in Charlotte, North Carolina that is able to assist with mold and bacterial testing needs. The laboratory is American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) Environmental Microbiology Laboratory Accreditation Program (EMLAP) accredited for fungal analysis by air, bulk and surface direct examination.

In addition, the laboratory is AIHA Environmental Lead Laboratory Accreditation Program (ELLAP) accredited for lead analysis in paint, soil and dust wipes and National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) accredited for air and bulk asbestos fiber analysis.
