Help! I think I have black mold in my house

Posted by Gabriela Jager on


MOLD has been around since the beginning of time and is a natural component of life on earth... so why has it become such a big issue recently? As the trend to build houses that are more "energy-efficient" has increased, we have created homes with sealed openings to keep conditioned air inside and outside air out. The problem is that any moisture generated or leaking inside is trapped there, providing ideal conditions for mold. Modern construction methods and materials like drywall and particleboard are perfect breeding grounds for mold, whereas older building materials such as concrete and plaster, have a greater resistance to mold growth. Lastly, increased weather disasters such as hurricanes have led to millions of dollars in damage from mold growing in flooded homes, when the proper procedures are not taken to really remove the damaged materials and dry out any wet construction materials and standing water.

Posted by Gabriela Jager on


A standard homeowners insurance policy may cover repairs for mold and water damage, but it depends on the source. For instance, you could be reimbursed if mold or water damage occurs due to a plumbing issue, water heater leak or roof damage by a standard home insurance policy. However, damage caused by flooding would not be covered because a standard homeowners policies does not cover you include flood damage. Flood damage is typically only covered by flood insurance.
