What is Mold?

Why Would I Have Mold in My House?


Maybe you recently had a flood or some type of water emergency in your home. There could be a pipe leaking within your walls. Or perhaps a runoff or overflow of a kitchen sink or bathroom toilet? In many cases, homeowners will notice mold on their walls. Within those cases, many homeowners are unaware of a leak within their walls. Once they have noticed the mold, it is possible that a leak(s) has existed for weeks or even months.

Once this water has made contact to your home (outside of a toilet, sink or pipes), mold can begin growing within 48 to 72 hours. Therefore, if you have had water damage to your home, it is important that you call a professional as soon as possible. Flood Busters® has a team of trained experts. Our team responds within the hour and offers a FREE WATER INSPECTION. More importantly, our team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. So do not wait, give us a call today (619)562-3800 .

Where Can Mold Grow in Your Home?


Mold on Walls.

Drywall can be a carrier for mold. It can continue to grow and spread if untreated.

Mold on Wood.

In addition, wood is a great source of food for mold. Mold can lurk within your walls and grow on wood surfaces. It can leach onto the drywall and breach outside of your walls.

Mold on Metal.

Mold needs food and metal is not food. So you might find mold on the surface of metal however, it is not exactly an incubator for mold.

Mold on Plastic.

Like metal, it is possible for mold to exist on plastic if some sort of substance exists for it to feed on.

Mold on Furniture (beds, couches, etc.)

Similar to wood, porous materials like wet beds and couches are also a breeding ground for mold. If you have had a flood or leak and it has made contact with your furniture, try to remove the furniture from the affected area to place that it can properly dry. However, if the bottoms of the couch, for example, are wet and moved to a dry location, it is still possible for mold to grow. By placing the wet surface down, a damp and wet environment still exists for the mold. Call Flood Busters® for the best way to deal with your water emergency.
