This photo is from a foreclosed property that was damaged by a water main break. The basement remained inundated with standing water for several days before it was discovered, allowing water to wick up the walls, and mold began to grow. All that mold needs to begin growing is sufficient moisture for 48 to 72 hours and a suitable growth medium. In this case, the growth medium was simply a thin layer of accumulated dust and soil on the surface of the wall.
