According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), mildew and mold could develop within a home or building 24 to 48 hours after water exposure. For most healthy people, exposure to mold, including black mold, may only cause a mild allergic response, such as a cough, runny nose and eye irritation (hay fever). For children and individuals with health complications, exposure to mold can cause more serious health problems. In order to prevent mold, it is essential to remove all wet items and building materials from the flooded area, such as drywall, carpet, carpet padding, furniture, damp boxes and anything that became wet from the flooding. After removing these items, the next step is to assess the mold or mildew and work to mitigate its current and future impacts.
