There are over 100,000 forms of fungi that can turn into mold. Mold in excessive amounts may cause health issues or worse. When water gets into a part of your home or business, getting the water out before mold sets up is ideal. Mold can appear anywhere from 24-48 hours after water damage has been left untreated. Mold can be in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors, and it will most likely show up in your home when moisture is present. Here are the warning signs to look for if water has not been removed before the mold begins to grow:
- visible mold growth
- present or past water damages
- a strong or musty odor
- mold problems in the past
If you or someone you know has water damage that you suspect has turned into mold damages, give us a call at (606) 877-2160

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
