Does a flooded basement cause mold?
One of the rooms in the house where you will most often find mould growth is the basement. Flooding is a common cause of mould in the basement.
If a house gets flooded, water seeps down to the basement and stays there even after the other rooms dry. This leads to the growth of dangerous moulds such as Stachybotrys Chartarum or toxic black mould.
If your basement floods, it helps to call professionals such as Canada’s Restoration Services, who specialize in assessing, repairing flood and water damage as well as provide mould removal services.
