Water Damage Causes Mold and Mildew Growth
One of the worst effects on a house from water damage is the growth of mold. Molds can begin growing within 24 hours of a leak or flood in your home and can ultimately destroy your home and result in many health issues. Even if you manage to repair everything else in your home, mold grow can still destroy even your new repairs. Inhaling mold can pose many health risks, such as immune disorders, cancer, and other pathogenic diseases. Children constantly exposed to mold are also more likely to develop asthma when they grow up. To prevent mold and mildew growth in your home after a leak or flood, it is essential that you contact a mold assessor/inspector directly after a leak or flood has been cleaned up.
Looking out for Mold Signs After a Flood
After cleaning up from a leak or flood there’s still a good chance that mold might start growing sometime in the near future. Flood water can remain in the ground around your house and affect the foundation. Water which seeps up through the foundation can end up in the walls and the floorboards and lead to hidden mold. In this case you’ll eventually notice a mold odor or start to feel the health effects.
This is why it’s important to stay alert for mold or any signs of mold. You should have your home inspected and tested again if you notice signs that there could be mold in your home.
