How long after water damage does mold grow ?

SERVPRO of Westminster has helped several homes and commercial businesses recover and restore damaged contents. 

Water damage can occur from broken pipes or naturally from rain or snow. If technicians don't dry and clean up any moist areas, mold can spread. Meaning, it can cause more damage to contents inside the home including carpet, flooring, walls, furniture and personal belongings. 

Mildew and mold are likely to begin growing within a day or two after a water damage occurs. Mold can develop very quickly, within 24-48 hours, and will continue to grow until its access to a source of water is removed. This is why it’s incredibly important to act quickly when water damage occurs to your property. Waiting too long to fix the damage could result in more problems, like mold.
