Finding Mold

Mold is a fungus that grows everywhere, even inside your home. The one thing that mold needs to grow is water. Wherever there is moisture, there is a higher chance of mold growth, so you can only imagine what kind of mold growth can happen after a flood. You will be able to easily spot mold growth once all the water has been drained from your home. It will appear in dark splotches in corners, around baseboards, and it will give off a musky odor. Mold remediation after a flood is very important to keep you and your family safe from the health risks mold can cause.
