Default water leak from top floor to main floor

Hi all, we had a toilet leaking the other day on the top floor and the water went down down the walls and into the powder room on the main floor. the paint started bubbling in a few spots, part of the ceiling is stained, etc. the leak is now fixed. can mold start growing behind those walls as a result of just one leak?
