Flood-Affected Properties are at High Risk of Mold Infestation

Due to extraordinarily high rainfall this summer, floods have caused serious destruction across the country. There have been reports of deaths, injuries as well as property damage.

Experts recommend paying attention to possible mold infestation before moving back into the flood-affected properties. According to the experts, the flood water brings invisible pathogens with it while the air brings mold spores. Once a mold spore finds a wet, organic surface, it can multiply into as many as 12 million spores in just a 12-hour period.

Therefore, before you move back into your house after flood, you should ensure that mold is not there to harm your loved ones.
