Johnston, RI, November 25th, 2013 -- Each year, countless Americans are impacted by tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and wildfires. Virtually all of society lives in an area that can be impacted by some type of natural disaster.
When one of these natural disasters occurs, homes, businesses and all of the institutions that society depends on can be damaged and contaminated by indoor air quality pollutants. Water damage from floods and storms often leads to mold growth indoors and other microbial and even chemical concerns. Wildfires can spread soot over large areas, creating property damage and health concerns in all types of structures. Even lead-based paints and asbestos remain a concern in countless properties from coast to coast.
“As America gets ready to celebrate Thanksgiving, MBM Insurance Resource Center would like to give a special thanks to all of the indoor air quality consultants and contractors who help people and communities respond to natural disasters,” said Marybeth Mainelli, President of MBM. “These dedicated professionals help people safely rebuild their lives by recognizing and removing health hazards such as mold, asbestos, lead and so many other potential hazards that are frequently encountered following a natural disaster.”
