How Fast Does Mold Grow After a Roof Leak?

One of the symptoms of a roof leak is mold. When a roof has an issue that allows water intrusion into the home, mold can begin to grow on multiple surfaces, such as trusses, drywall, plywood, and tile. As the mold grows, it can break down wood and other materials, leading to both cosmetic and structural damage. Exposure to mold can also be dangerous to people’s health. 

Several factors can affect the speed of mold growth, including temperature and humidity, types of surfaces affected, the species of mold, and the presence of mold spores. Generally, mold can start to develop within 24 to 48 hours following a surface’s first contact with water. Mold spores are not immediately apparent and can take 18 to 21 days for mold to colonize and become visible to the naked eye. 

As soon as you notice a roof leak on your property, reach out to the skilled professionals at Superior Roofing Company of Georgia. We’ll make sure the correct repairs are made as soon as possible to prevent mold and other issues from developing.
