Damp materials or high humidity environments contribute to preferential conditions for mould growth. Moulds are capable of colonising and persisting on a vast array of surfaces due to their role in nature in the decomposition and nutrient recycling process in the environment. After flooding or water damage has occurred, insufficient remediation of the affected buildings can lead to favourable conditions for mould/fungal growth, both visible and hidden. Floor coverings such as vinyl, laminate and carpets as well as underlying insulation should be replaced where necessary. Where not replaced or left untreated, flooring can act as a favourable substrate for microbial growth. Additionally, any underflooring materials such as chipboard or joists should be replaced without hesitation if damaged, while any modifications such as cracks, heaves or discolouration may be indicative of damage that needs to remediated.
