Flood Yesterday, Mold Today

Just like April showers bring May flowers, summer floods brings fall mold. So it is not surprising that the areas of Omaha that flooded this summer are now working at building an unhealthy crop of mold. Normally mold can be associated with a water leak, but any rogue water, including flood water, could be a cause. Hopefully if your house was seriously flooded, you discarded all of those soggy goods that could not be cleaned, and cleaned everything that could be.

So if mold is appearing in your basements, bathrooms, under carpeting, behind drywall, and where ever bathrooms are vented to, like attic spaces, dry it up and clean it up and you’ll be fine. All those damp warm spaces in your house are a perfect environment for mold to get a foothold. Keep that air conditioning running, and run that dehumidifier, and that will help you control the problem. Otherwise that mold will be feasting on the cellulose in your house, and might cause an annoyance or even a health issue down the road.
