Recovery from SuperStorm Sandy :: A Quick Fix May Not Be the Right Fix

New Feature

Now you can ask questions on every Hometalk post to get more insight and information about your favorite projects!
As a Marylander, I know that many are knee deep in storm clean up. And as I review information, I figure the single best piece of information I can share is this . . .

Above all, the most important thing you can do, as you make repairs ... right now ... is to NOT loose your head. A quick (panicked) fix may by no means be the right fix.

For example, you may now be cleaning up mold, but remember - the best way to clean up mold is to prevent it from the beginning ... to build (or re-build) for it.

And that's it.

Maybe you'll find other helpful tips here (idk):

* Working with an HVAC Contractor in an Emergency Situation:

  • Mold spores under a magnifying glass.
  • Dehumidifier and fan used to dry out a flooded basement.
  • Water infiltration often starts at the gutters.
