Water damage and mold damage often go hand in hand. Mold growth can begin to form 48-72 hours after water damage occurs. Keep in mind that mold is not always because of a huge water damage mess. Sometimes mold will be caused from the tiniest of leaks, ones you wouldn’t even notice. This could be a leaky bathroom faucet, a crack in a washing machine hose, or any number of water damage problems. If left unnoticed, it’s likely mold will follow.
Not all mold is going to harm you. There are thousands of types of mold, but only a few that are actually going to do some damage to you. For example, if mold has been in your home for a while, it’s probably not going to harm you. Although, just because mold is harmless, you should not procrastinate the clean up process. The mold may not be affecting you, but it still has potential to destroy the structures of the home. It may also affect your visitors. You may not be allergic to a particular mold spore, but it’s not unlikely that a visitor will be.
