You got 48 hours to dry out the basement before mold grows. A wet vac, a couple box fans, a good dehumidifier, and a relative humidity meter are the tools needed to dry out the basement to below 50% relative humidity. The earth grade around a home and the water table are the most critical issues. Basement wall cracks should be sealed. The drainage system should intercept water as it leaks in. If the water table is above the basement floor, the cracks or drainage will be effective.
