Awareness Message for Sandy Victims

Is your home dry? And are you building back already?

Is your home dry? And are you builing back already?

If your home is still wet you should not be rebuilding until you know that it's dry.

By re-building to soon you will trap moisture in your walls and floors and create an environment for mold and rot to grow.

If your applying mold inhibitors to your wet building material it more then likely not work because the wood can't except any more moisture..... there for it wont work.

Applying a bleach solution is not effective either..... the chemicals that make up bleach evaporate to fast for them to work on wet wood and what is left is more water on your already wet wood.

What you need is a way to measure the Moisture Content of your Building Structure to determine if your READY to REBUILD........ and once the home is dry enough to except mold inhibitors and decontamination treatments, then you can start to rebuild not before.......

Also, if you noticed there are lots of green cars and trucks running around all over long island and most are from out of state.

What I'm saying is.... if your using out of state contractors you should be careful and make sure that your loss is being handled properly and get a certificate of completion from them......also ask in the event that, if a concern of yours comes into play......who will help you.. when they all left long Island, and went home to, as far away as California. AGAIN BUYER BEWARE.

If your not sure that your home is dry and would like a free Moisture Reading call me, Bob Deacon, and I will give you free moisture meter readings to show you that your ready or not to build back your home......

As long as we have each other we will carry on.....Bob Deacon

Bob visited our home last week and provided the free moisture reading. He answered all of our questions patiently and completely. His crew is here now taking care of any moisture and mold. We will be able to rebuild by the middle of the week with a Certificate of Completion that puts my mind at ease!

I feel at ease now and wait patiently for our walls to dry completely so that Bob can come back to start the process. Don't rebuild before you have this service done.
