When water damage has occurred, mold is likely to grow, and it can be quite an infestation. Water is required for mold to grow, which makes it similar to many other lifeforms that exist on Earth. While getting rid of moisture and water will keep the mold from growing, it still isn’t completely eliminated.
It doesn’t take much for mold to start growing. Moisture, a food source in the form of organic matter, and a temperature that is warm enough are three things that mold needs to develop in any environment. Just a little more humidity than average, or a few centimeters of water will cause mold to form after a few days. In basements, standing water can be a growth site for mold, and the result of this growth is health problems and pricey cleaning bills. The options for getting rid of the mold are pretty limited, with mold remediation by a trained professional being the option that will yield the best results.
