Can a roof leak cause mold? Yes. Mold needs moisture to grow. Moisture is like sticky “mold candy”. If it is not cleaned up and dried quickly, mold will most likely formulate. The longer the leak is allowed or goes undetected, the more likely the formation of mold will occur. If the roof isn’t fixed, your chances of mold recurring after you cleaned up the initial bout are extremely high.
What kind of mold? It could be harmless, or it could be Black mold. What is harmless to one person may make another person sick. It depends upon each individual’s tolerance and response.
