Unfortunately, many properties were not addressed in a timely manner due to a large amount of homes that experienced water damage. Once the weather went from being cold to warm it has started to cause some problems. If  your flooring (carpet, wood flooring, tile) had water damage and sat for a few days you could have some mold spores starting to grow.  Mold spores can cling to surfaces and can basically float in the air.
