LINCOLN, Neb. — Mold growing in recently flooded buildings can cause health problems, state and federal emergency management officials warn Nebraska residents. Water-damaged rooms are moist environments, ideal for mold to flourish. People with respiratory problems such as allergies or asthma should not spend time in houses that might contain mold. Mold often is visible as a fuzzy growth or discoloration on surfaces. It usually has a musty, earthy odor.

Nationwide, scores of home and business owners have done it. The upfront costs can represent a sizeable investment. The good news is that the dividends of elevating can meet or exceed damage costs from one event alone.
