After 90,000 Long Island homes were destroyed by Hurricane Sandy’s storm surge, many of them have become mold-infested.

Mold removal is covered only to the water line, according to Fema. But Mold remediation after floods like sandy should be extended because by the time remediation occurs, the problem has spread far beyond Fema parameters. Mold grows.
