Prompt Flood Cleanup Can Prevent Mold Damage In Your Home

Water damage is bad enough, but mold is another danger entirely. Water damage and mold can cause problems for years after a flood. Whenever moisture accumulates due to a burst pipe, a roof leak or a flood, mold growth is sure to follow. As a homeowner, you may wonder, "How long does it take for mold to appear after my home's been damaged by water?" It can take less than 48 hours in most cases.
