Today’s home and business construction has become focused on heating efficiency. There fore many homes are sealed up tight and do not have proper airflow. This allows mold to grow or to stay dormant for a long time. Mold can be trapped in duct work or inside walls. When there is a water damage, mold is ready to flourish as it now has access to moisture, it has a food source and there is little air movement.
It is always best to call a professional as quickly as possible to make sure that a home is not further damaged by mold.
