Q: How long does it take for mold to start developing?
A: within 72 hours.
After water enters your home, what is your next move? If there is not a lot of visible water, many times people decide to try to fix it themselves. While some things might be able to be taken care of at home, if you do not get the area 100% dried, something that many people do not think about will start developing in the next few days: mold.
With mold development beginning within 3 days, when you have water damage, you need to take care of it quickly. Because of this, mold is something that SERVPRO of Allen, Barren, Hart, Green and Taylor Counties deal with almost daily. With our climate being rather muggy at times, the moisture in the air can also be enough to trigger growth.
