Water and flood damage has much to do with mold growth based on the following:
Water primary catalyst in mold growth. There is a large variety of species of mold, all of which need different amounts of available moisture to grow.
Cellulose is the nutrient of choice for mold. Some examples include carpet, wood, trim, dust/dirt, and drywall. Mold uses building materials for nutrients while damaging them as well.
Mold not only grows in dark environments, but in environments where light is present as well. Mold can grow well in the dark because moisture is present. On the other hand, many molds can begin to produce their spores when they are exposed to light.
Mold that begins to form in a water damaged area will grow best at room temperature.
