The heavy rains that have soaked the Florida panhandle in recent weeks could raise mold problems for homeowners.
Any home with moisture will have mold problems, so homeowners should repair any leaks as soon as possible. Mold begins growing in 48 to 72 hours.
Mold spreads rapidly, growing on any organic material. Dampness creates the ideal environment for mold. The leaks should be repaired and the home should be dried as soon as possible.
