Mold is a fungus that grows in areas fed by water or high humidity. Often, it feeds off of drywall, which is predominant in South Florida houses.
When a hurricane hits, mold has a chance to enter your house, thrive, and reproduce.
It is necessary to eradicate mold quickly and securely or it will cause damage.
If walls become saturated with water after a storm:
* Get air flowing within the house.
If mold becomes present in your home:
* Hire an engineer or air quality hygenist as soon as possible. Mold spreads within 72 hours.
* Get tarps to put on roof or windows to prevent water from entering your house.
In short, you must prepare properly or risk the presence of mold in your post-hurricane home.
