If you don’t get your home properly ventilated and dehumidified, you can experience serious mold growth. To prevent mold growth even at a later point, you need to eradicate any chances of problems later by adding anti-microbial agents. To determine which areas are more susceptible to spores, you need to call in a professional.
You need to dry the area out to avoid wood rot. Other building materials can suffer damage as well. Laminate separates from the surface when exposed to water for long periods. Make sure all water is removed as quickly as possible to avoid worse damage.
There are well-documented health problems associated with the growth of mold. However, you should also consider the problems you may be facing because of the kind of water that damaged your home. While freshwater can cause enough damage, black or gray water can add some fungi, bacteria and dangerous microorganisms into the mix.
