What Causes Mold?
Mold typically grows in warm and humid environments. In South Florida, the humidity already provides an ideal breeding ground for mold, but there are specific events and situations that may lead to the development of toxic mold that can threaten your health and your property.
Mold may develop in your home or business as a result of:
- Leaking pipes
- Water leaks
- Roof damage
- Standing water at the building’s foundation
- High indoor humidity (lack of ventilation, overuse of humidifiers, etc.)
You can prevent mold by keeping your property clean, using dehumidifiers, and being vigilant about searching for and repairing any water leaks.
Is Mold Covered in My Policy?
Some insurance policies have mold exclusions, which may contain wording intended to limit coverage for mold and mold-related damage. It is important to note, however, that mold may still be covered if it has resulted from a loss that is covered by the policy. Mold growth resulting from a burst pipe would be an example, if the burst pipe was covered by the policy.
When our Florida State-Wide mold insurance claim attorneys take on a new case, we carefully analyze the language of our client’s policy to determine what’s covered, and to what extent. Because we have a thorough understanding of the wording and tactics insurance providers sometimes use to avoid paying property damage claims, we can look for openings that should allow for coverage.
