Following Hurricane Katrina, many New Orleans homes remained flooded for weeks, promoting heavy microbial growth. A small demonstration project was conducted November 2005-January 2006 with the aims to recommend safe remediation techniques, safe levels of worker protection, and to characterize airborne mold and endotoxin throughout clean-up. This paper examines the results of this project.
