/EINPresswire.com/ Hurricane Sandy Flooding Aftermath Wreaks Havoc On New York City with Mold Infestations, Who will Be There to Help?
Motty Katz - Helping Hurricane Sandy Relief Victims On Numerous Fronts
As New York City and surrounding areas are recovering from Hurricane Sandy flooding, hundreds and thousands of homes are now being devastated by toxic mold infestations. While there have been hundreds of thousands of insurance and FEMA claims filed for Hurricane Sandy relief, the demand for quick assistance from insurance
companies, FEMA, and other service providers and contractors has been very slow. Who is going to help?
Motty Katz, an environmental services provider and owner of a NYC mold inspection and mold removal company, recently stated - “As with every catastrophe or natural disaster, comes calamity, disorder, grief, and monetary issues. FEMA is doing a good job considering the laws and regulations that are currently in place, but more could most definitely be done," Mr. Katz continued. “Dealing with emergency services, insurance companies, and FEMA can sometimes be a very slow process, especially when there are so many that have been affected by Hurricane Sandy and the aftermath there of. We have been through these very same processes over the years of serving the NYC metro area and are very familiar with making the best connections possible for our clients to get there homes back in safe habitable order. As we do have some politicians lobbying for more emergency FEMA funding and revamping of some of the FEMA regulations for mold, we at Five Boro Mold Specialist have been lobbying for stricter guidelines for environmental service companies to undergo more professional certification and training before becoming a state registered environmental business. With disaster comes fraud and with environmental services comes hazardous waste, the State of NY needs to recognize these very serious issues especially in the tumultuous times.”
With over 100,000 disaster relief claims on Long Island alone, along with a projected 1 billion dollars in mold damage alone, FEMA definitely has there hands full with incoming claims. In Nassau County alone, officials there projected Hurricane Sandy expenses to cost the county some where in the vicinity of 213 million dollars. Of these expenses for Nassau County,NY, roughly seventy five percent of the Hurricane Sandy relief costs will be covered by FEMA. With almost ten billion dollars approved by congress for Hurricane Sandy flood insurance claim funds over the weekend, politicians are now preparing to vote on another 50 billion dollars in relief funds for victims of Hurricane Sandy on Jan. 15th, 2013.
Motty Katz closed by stating,"Property owners in the NYC area should definitely have a NYC mold testing service completed as soon as possible in order to see if there is any hazardous materials within a home or place of business. In short, the affects of toxic mold can be devastating to ones health and well being, and considering most of NYC was flooded from Hurricane Sandy, almost all of NYC buildings are at high risk."
