How Fast Does Mold Grow After A Leak?

Mold (Mould) and Mildew will develop within 24-48 hours of water exposure. Unfortunately, it will continue to grow until steps are taken to detect and eliminate the source of the leak, and deal effectively with the problem.

How Can I Find A Leak In My House?

Leaks often don’t present themselves as a straightforward obvious flow of water. They can be concealed within a floor for example due to a break in a heating pipe. This example could manifest itself as a malfunctioning boiler whereas a slow leak within a wall can result in mould or mildew forming in that area. However your leak appears, our experts are equipped to find it. You may notice grouting in tiles breaking or bulging.  This is a typical sign of water build up behind the tiles and could be from a leak.
