It doesn’t matter if it’s a small or large amount of water, if it came from a plumbing fixture or rain, it will turn into mold within 48-72 hours. Mold can have severe effects on the indoor air quality and be a major threat on immunocompromised individuals such as children, elderly and others.
Mold is everywhere, all the time. There is no such thing as a mold “removal” because mold is everywhere. It’s on your cloth and on your furniture. There are many types of mold, not all of them toxic and they are not appearing due to the same reasons. Moisture causes the mold spores to duplicate and expand to other areas and it uses water as a source of food. The concept of mold remediation is, to identify the source of moisture and eliminate it, remediate and “kill” the existing visual fungi while cleaning the air by using special equipment to bring the indoor air quality back to living standards.
If you suspect that there is a mold presence at your property, it is important to take it seriously and have a set of professional eyes look at the situation ASAP.
