Mold in Denver Homes From Water Damage

Water intrusions into the house such as flooding, burst pipe or leaky roof compromise the integrity of the building, destroys electronics and appliances and ruins furniture, carpeting, clothing, and other household items.

On top of that, it creates welcome conditions for mold growth. This increases the damage and makes the restoration process longer, harder, and costlier.

How Mold Grows & Spreads Inside The House

Mold spores exist everywhere in the environment and mold starts developing when they get organic “food” and moisture. There are plenty of porous organic materials in our house such as drywall, insulation, paint, paper products, etc. When they come in contact with them and a few inches of water or even just high humidity they start to grow, germinate, and spread.

It takes only a few hours for the molds to spread, 24 to 48 hours to grow and germinate,3 to 12 days to colonize and about 18 to 21 days to become visible.

How Mold Growth Can Be Stopped in Your Denver Home

You can prevent mold from growing by keeping your home dry or removing moisture before mold has the chance to grow.

However, proper drying can be quite difficult as water can find its way into all kinds of materials and spread into walls, under floors, and through ceilings on its route to the lowest point in the house and might not even be visible until it’s too late.

That is why the best way to prevent mold from infesting your home following an incident with water damage is to dry the premises by experienced professionals within the first 48 hours of water intrusion.
