Mold can begin growing within a few days of a water loss, as long as the structure stays wet it can continue to spread. You typically won't see visible growth until your property has been wet for a few days or more. When a roof leak occurs and the ceiling drywall gets wet, mold can grow from the top down then appear on the ceiling below.
