1When should I inspect my home for mold?
If your home received abnormal water exposure because of a flood, leak or serious spill, you should consider scheduling a mold inspection — particularly if you notice symptoms such as a musty odor, visible water damage or visible mold growth. Mold can grow within 24 to 48 hours of moisture. Additionally, if you or anyone in your household is suffering from an unexplained illness that does not have a clear medical explanation, there is a chance it could be attributed to mold/fungi growth in your home.
Symptoms of mold exposure include, but are not limited to:
- Throat Soreness
- Sudden Fatigue
- Irritated Eyes
2Help! My home just flooded. What should I do?
It is important to begin cleaning and drying the interior of your home immediately if you recently experienced flooding. The sooner you are able to evacuate the water and dry the area, the less mold growth will be able to occur or no microbial growth at all. Mold can begin growing within a 24 to 48 hours of water exposure and can be visible within just a few days. It may be necessary to seek professional help if there is severe flood damage.
