Spring is a nice time of year mostly for the warm weather, chirping birds, and blooming trees. If there’s one downside to the season, though, it’s probably the rain. Spring can be a wet couple of months, with numerous storms and downpours resulting in almost perpetually soggy ground and, in some areas, flooding.

If left untreated, mold can lead to serious health problems, so hire a professional that specializes in water mitigation/restoration.
Although there’s not much you can do in the event of a storm that causes major flooding, there are still a few preventative steps that you as the homeowner can take to reduce your chances of a mold problem:
