So what about the mold
Tex78 · 41-45, M
Guess it will work
MyNameIsHurl · 41-45, F
Yeah

I got the water pretty much all up within the first few hours, just the padding was a little damp.

Ummm mold is a very very real threat if the water got as high as drywall. Once drywall is wet, it can warp for one, and then soppy drywall makes a great place for mold spores to grow.

I got some spray stuff. It didn't get that high, it just spread out everywhere. I'm pulling back all the carpet to mKe sure.

I would make it my business to move somewhere where there is no mold. That could be a health nightmare!

If there is any, my lease is up in a couple months.

Make sure you wear a face mask and use a watered down bleach spray. Though considering I do this for a living the stuff they do should have done the trick.
MyNameIsHurl · 41-45, F
Yeah, they did decent, just some areas they didn't do that thoroughly
Captainjackass · 26-30, M
[@41071,MyNameIsHurl] make sure you vacuum it first to get all the spores!

Also aim a few fans at the wet areas- this will help the evaporation process and make the moisture more available to the dehumidifier...I had this problem only twice and I left the fans and dehumidifier running 24/7 for about 2 weeks and it dried the heck out of it - and careful breathing that chemical crap😷

I'm on it, got a big section of carpet pulled back n drying out the padding

[@41071,MyNameIsHurl] Good work it should be ok since you acted quickly - well done!
