[Enterprise Community Partners] Webinar: How to Restore Your Flooded Home: Addressing Mold & Other Health-Related Hazards
October 5, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Mold can cause serious health problems for young children, seniors and anyone with respiratory illnesses and weak immune systems. Led by Enterprise Community Partners and offered in partnership with NeighborWorks America, the National Center for Healthy Housing and the Florida Housing Coalition, this webinar will share best practices and post-flood mold remediation techniques to make damaged homes safe and habitable.
The mold-remediation guidance (http://bit.ly/2ycMIq5) draws from recovery and rebuilding experience after Hurricanes Katrina, Sandy, Irene and Rita.
Who should attend: Community-based organizations, contractors, housing owners, technical assistance providers, code officials, volunteer managers and finance partners involved in clean-up and risk mitigation following Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
Current rebuilding estimates make Harvey and Irma unofficially the third and fourth costliest hurricanes in U.S. history. High winds, heavy rains and flooding destroyed and damaged homes, leaving hundreds of thousands of residents displaced, without power and at risk of serious health issues if damp conditions and mold are left untreated.
