Mold can grow and spread just about anywhere moisture and a food source are present: walls, carpet, floors, insulation, wood; to name a few. Exposure can cause a variety of health problems as well as allergic reactions. To protect the health of occupants, Aztec Construction and Restoration removes and eliminates future mold growth beginning with assessing the way a structure was built, evaluating humidity levels and controls, and recommending and repairing any structural deficiencies.

“Was your home flooded? If so, and you were not able to dry your home (including furniture and other items) within 24-48 hours, you should assume you have mold growth. You need to completely dry everything, clean up the mold, and make sure you don’t still have a moisture problem.
You may see or smell mold on clothing, drywall, furniture, cardboard boxes, or books, but it may also be hidden under or behind items like carpet, cushions, or walls.” (https://www.cdc.gov/mold/cleanup-guide.html)
