ABC News provided advice to residents whose homes were flooded during Hurricane Sandy about how important it is to remove wet sheetrock before you are faced with a hazardous mold growth condition. Microecologies was among the first responders after Sandy hit New York, and our team properly instructed homeowners how to protect themselves and clean their homes. In the following months Microecologies conducted over 600 home inspections and over 400 remediation projects on flooded homes where significant mold growth conditions occurred.
