If you’re dealing with the flood today, or if you were dealing with it yesterday and now you’re in the clean up phase, remember you have to get the environment completely dry to prevent mold from developing. Mold is a natural and practically inevitable result of water damage from leaks, flooding, or any other source. In nature, mold breaks down dead plant and animal tissue. If what is available is your walls, mold will break down those too, especially if there is cellulose involved.
