It is important, if you have a any loss, to consult a professional. We have been trained for many situations and know what to look for. For instance a small leak under a window may just be the tip of the iceberg. I have seen a roof leak go down an exterior wall and drain in to crawlspace, the problem went undetected for years. A strong storm came in and drove some of the rain into the wall, saturating the drywall in the corner of a window. I was dispatched to assess the situation and begin the drying process. One of the first things we learn is to check all adjacent areas, water can travel along rafters before entering the living environment. Using my moisture meter I found moisture in the whole wall and even the ceiling. Luckily I could take a look at the ceiling in the attic so I continued my investigation up there. What I found was very bad, it looked like black mold had taken residence in the attic near the area of a roof leak, which was running down an exterior wall and drain into the crawlspace. This leak had been going on for a long time and that strong storm was just enough to push it through to the living space.
Never assume it will just dry out naturally, buildings built since the 1970's have been increasingly energy efficient. With efficiency in mind we seal up our buildings and take control of the indoor environment. We can make this a good environment or a bad one, do you know what is good for your home? That is a post for another day or even another industry for that matter.
The point is, let the professionals handle the drying.
For all the DIYer's it maybe the last, most costly mistake you ever make. Would you remediate asbestos or lead? Mold can be just as dangerous and improper drying will sometimes lead to mold growth. I am all about DIY projects, but if you do not know what "psychrometry" means without clicking the link please call a professional for a consultation.
