However, even after your building is completely dry it is critical that proper steps are taken to remove any mold that is present and prevent future mold growth in your building. A home or commercial building that has sustained flooding provides the ideal conditions for mold growth. Under the right conditions, molds produce spores that can spread easily through the air and form new mold growths.
Mold growth occurs when there is moisture, organic material, and space to grow; exactly the conditions your home or commercial building provides during and after flooding. Mold causes extensive damage to your home, possessions and even to your health. The longer you allow mold to grow in your home the greater the risk and the more difficult the cleanup process will be.
