Yes, hurricane damage can and often does cause mold growth within your property. As hurricane winds can cause openings in your roof, windows, and other weak spots, it is easy for water to get into your home and cause mold to grow in as little as 24 hours.
The time length of water damage restoration depends heavily on the amount of damage within your home. Demolition, remediation, drying, vent cleaning, repairs, and complete restoration can take up to several weeks to complete.
If you have water damage in your home after a hurricane, a water damage restoration company like CLEAR Restoration will start the cleaning process by making sure no additional water is getting into your home and will patch up any openings. From there, CLEAR Restoration will start the drying process using water extraction machinery to ensure your home is dry and safe.
Hurricane damage comes in all different proportions. From roof damage to flooding, a hurricane can affect every part of your home, even the inside. A full inspection of your home after a hurricane blows through is probably the best and safest way to locate any and all damage.
