Storms Bring Mold Growth

Mold can start growing anywhere there is water and the presence of mold spores. Inside, most people’s home there are usually tons of mold spores floating around. We just don’t see them because they are so tiny, but they are simply waiting for the right conditions to start growing and producing visible mold.

After a storm, it is highly likely that homes that had little to no mold growth will suddenly start seeing mold growing. They may not realize the damage the storm has caused and how the water leaking into their home from the storm can easily cause mold to grow.

Storms can send water into unexpected places, and high winds can whip water in different directions and into parts of the home that would usually be safe from water and leaking. Storms can also damage homes and create a way for water to seep in where it would previously be kept out from.
