Mold damage to your home is devastating. Regardless of whether you’ve found contained mold damage in one room or a complete mold outbreak on your property, material possessions and/or inventory throughout your property, you deserve full compensation for all mold losses covered by your insurance policy.
If you’ve recently discovered mold damage in your home or business you probably already know that mold will grow anywhere that the conditions allow it to. The only thing mold needs in order to grow is a food source and some moisture. The moisture can come from leaking pipes or appliances, roof or wall damage, badly maintained air conditioners, drainage problems or high humidity levels. Mold can find its food source from carpets, curtains, wall coverings, mattresses or even home insulation.
Mold can spread unnoticed for a long time, leading to serious health consequences. Chronic coughs, headaches and migraines, sinus problems, frequent sneezing and watery, itchy eyes are all symptoms caused by the presence of mold. Some people are much more sensitive to mold than others and may suffer severe – and in some cases life threatening, allergies or respiratory diseases.
Left untreated, mold may cause structural damage to your home and unfortunately many insurers deny these kinds of claims. Severe cases of mold infestation will make it nearly impossible to insure or sell your home so mold should be eradicated as soon as it is spotted. Most mold growth is caused by conditions beyond your control so you may have a claim for your insurance company.
