Mold

In the aftermath of natural disasters like floods, tornadoes or hurricanes, moisture and standing water can lead to growth of mold in homes and buildings. While mold spores in dry conditions do not necessarily pose a health problem, high humidity levels and standing water can lead to mold growth, ultimately causing health issues. These are mostly due to mold generated irritants, allergens, and toxins.
