The City of Binghamton is concerned about the affects of last month's flooding.
Some properties in the city are being affected by mold and mildew.
Binghamton Fire and Police Departments are passing out information to hundreds of flood damaged homes this weekend.
On Broad Avenue, Binghamton firefighters are giving homeowners FEMA pamphlets explaining how to properly clean mold.
"If you do have mold and mildew and you don't get it cleaned properly, it can spread and grow. It can be a danger to your health, it can make you sick. It's very important that you get it cleaned up and cleaned properly," said Arthur Griswold of the Binghamton Fire Department.
If you think your home could have a mold problem, you can pick up pamphlets at any Binghamton Fire Department.
You can also call the Broome County Health Department at 778-2847.
