How quick water damage can turn into a mold problem
When you experience water damage, you’re likely not thinking about mold growth. You’re more concerned with the situation at hand – all of the water sitting on your floor. But mold is a genuine concern. In fact, it should be one of your primary concerns when dealing with water damage. Before long, your home could be infested with all manner of mold spores. These spores travel through the air, into the air ducts, and can cause poor indoor air quality and illness. When dealing with water damage, you’re on the clock. It’s best to schedule mold remediation alongside water damage restoration for the best results.
Once mold sets in, it won’t be long before it starts reproducing new spores into the air and spreading its influence throughout the house. In fact, it can be just a matter of hours before mold spreads throughout the home. The spores will travel via any opening, including an open doorway or through the air ducts. The air ducts are particularly troublesome. In most homes, the air ducts connect the entire house together via the HVAC system. From there, the mold spores will have access to every room of the house.
