OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Officials say if you were not able to dry your home within 24 to 48 hours after it was flooded you should assume you have mold growth.

I sat down with the owner of A-1 Mold Testing and Remediation Services about what goes into testing a home for mold, and just how busy he's been since the floods hit.

If you find mold covers a 10x10 foot area or more, the CDC says you should have a professional take care of it.
