Mold - The Aftermath of Water Damage

Mold - The Aftermath of Water DamageWhen flooding happens, water damage is the typical occurrence with wet walls, soaked floorboards, soggy furniture, and damaged carpets. When moisture is not effectively removed from your home after a flood, other problems may arise, such as mold development.

Mold loves moisture and when enough moisture is left in your home after a flood, mold will grow. After water damage, you can usually find mold growing in places that you can’t easily see, such as under carpets, inside walls, and other hidden areas in your home where water or moisture are present. Removing the mold is just as important as water damage restoration, but it is no easy task.

In order to properly remove traces of mold growth in your home, you must first locate the source of water. Indicators of mold growth include a strong musty smell, black and green spots, and if not found quickly, the mold can cause allergic reactions such as itching and respiratory issues. Since mold can hide in places that you would not think to look, you may not be able to locate it on your own fast enough.
