In an effort to help support the victims of Hurricane Sandy, Bonded Waterproofing, a leader in NJ basement waterproofing systems since 1980, is offering discounts to businesses and consumers that have suffered water damage due to the super storm.
Those affected by water damage from Hurricane Sandy will receive a 20% discount on any of Bonded's Waterproofing or Mold Remediation services.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who fell victim to this devastating hurricane," says Lou Alloro, founder and president, Bonded Waterproofing. “As a native of New Jersey and someone personally affected by Sandy, offering this discount is our way of helping people get back on their feet.”
The damage from Sandy is extensive, but for those returning to their homes, there may be a harder-to-see problem that can pose an unseen health risk.
With all the flooding and standing waters caused by the storm, the growth of mold spores behind walls and under floors has become a problem for many. Airbourne mold spores can cause symptoms ranging from a stuffy nose, irritated eyes, wheezing, or skin irritation, to more serious symptoms such as difficulty breathing or shortness of breath. Those with asthma, allergies, or a suppressed immune system, may be even more sensitive to mold
As a certified New Jersey mold removal specialist, Bonded has seen firsthand the health impact of invisible mold in the home.
More moisture brings a higher chance that mold can grow. People can tell if mold has infringed on their living space by looking to see if the walls and ceiling are discolored or show signs of mold growth or water damage. Smelling a bad odor such as a musty earthy smell or foul stench may also be a clue there is a mold problem.
The Environmental Protection Agency suggests reducing indoor humidity to 30 to 60 percent to stop further mold growth by using air conditioners and dehumidifiers which could get rid of the moisture. And in cases where homeowners find large areas of mold growth they advise contacting professionals for an on-site moisture assessment and removal.
