Flood in Basement and Mold?

Hello,
We are flooded in my furnished basement. We have furniture and carpet. The water is still coming in after 5 days.
We are going to have the basement cleaned by a specialist. By that I mean carpet taken up water sucked out, cleaned dried with fans and hopefully dehumidifiers.
But I want to be protected against mold. I just learned that cleaning a basement and doing mold remediation are two separate things. Should we hire someone who does both? Or will getting the water out on time protect us from the mold?
Thanks

Depends on how quickly basement is completely dried out. Mold/mildew grows fast under ideal conditions.

------------------------------------------------------ Sorry to hear about the flooding. Wondering if your home owner insurance would help with the expenses as recently here in the suburban Detroit area hard rains flooded homes in one community near me and extensive damage occured.
Sad one women's house was so damaged by water she couldn't move back in and home was listed as total lost. Her insurance claim was denied because insurance rep. stated ground was reason for flood so no go on repairs.
