When I first bought by home in Charleston, South Carolina, I was so excited about being close to the water, seeing the marsh from my back porch and enjoying the view from my bedroom window every morning. After a couple of years, I noticed that my wooden floors were buckling a little in some areas, but I just attributed that to the fact that floors expand and contract over time. It didn't really bother me much. A few years later, I started to notice that my electric bill was increasing and the air seemed to blow a little warmer through my first floor vents, so I called my HVAC company. What they found surprised me very much...
Do you ever think about your air ducts? Not many people do. As long as the air is blowing cool in the summer months and hot in the winter months, most people don't care much about it.

Water damage can occur for a variety of reasons in your home: a plumbing leak, a toilet leak, a shower leak, a roof leak... many situations can cause drywall, carpet or wooden floors to become wet for an extended period of time. Most people think that drying the wet areas is enough, but if your carpets or floors are soaked for an extended period of time, you will most likely have some mold issues to deal with.
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.

If your home is affected by mold, you are probably having allergy symptoms like: runny nose, coughing or sneezing, sinus infections, ear infections, skin rashes and even asthma attacks! Because some people are more sensitive to mold than others, your symptoms could vary from one member of the family to another. Molds are usually not a problem outdoors, but can become a problem indoors because when mold spores land on a wet or damp surface, they begin reproducing rapidly and release allergens that get re-circulated inside your home. Mold can cause serious health problems to you and your loved ones, so it is important to follow the following guidelines to prevent mold growth inside your home:
