      How to deal with mold growth in buildings after flooding

      The most practical and reliable tools for detecting mold growth are visual observation and the sense of smell. However, it's important to know that mold at the very early stages of growth may not be visible neither odorous. The fact is that mold growth is inevitable after flooding if the building is not dried within 48 hours. After the 48 hours mold growth may not require a lot of moisture to continue growing and this means that drying alone is not enough. Below are the mold guidelines that one could follow if mold growth occurs after flooding.

      1. Mould Guidelines by the Canadian Construction Association

      2. Mould Abatement by the Environmental Abatement Council of Ontario (EACO)

      3. Guidelines on Assessment and Remediation of Fungi in Indoor Environments by the New York City Department Of Health.

      Beauveria bassiana is found throughout the world. It is named after Agostino Bassi, an Italian entomologist, who discovered it in 1835 as the cause of the muscardine disease of silkworms. ...
