How a Public Adjuster Can Help with a Mold Claim

Florida is a paradise for mold spores; our weather features the perfect blend of heat and humidity for mold to proliferate. Once it starts growing, it damages or destroys everything in its path – walls, floors, curtains, furniture, toys, and more. Mold is costly to remediate; for a severe outbreak, a homeowner can spend tens of thousands of dollars to remove the mold and repair or replace the damage it caused. If you discover mold in your home, what are the steps that you should take?

Mold: A Primer

Mold is not just ugly, it can cause serious health problems, especially for immunocompromised individuals or people with lung disease, like asthma or COPD. Mold loves moisture and can grow well on any surface that is moist. After an area has been wet for 24-48 hours, mold starts to grow. Even if you can’t see or smell it yet, it is there. The longer the area is wet, the more mold that will grow.

Homeowners Insurance May or May Not Cover Mold Damage

If you have mold in your home, the first step is to figure out what caused the mold. If it was due to lack of maintenance, lack of using a dehumidifier, or another chronic condition in your home, insurance won’t cover the remediation costs. In general, insurance only pays for mold remediation caused by water damage from covered events, which are sudden and unforeseeable. Some examples of when insurance may cover this include:

  • Hurricane damage
  • A leak from a washing machine or a dishwasher
  • A burst pipe
  • Roof damage due to lightning or a fallen tree branch

If you have mold and you believe it was from a covered event, contact Get Paid For Your Claim. We will review your policy to understand your coverage limits and confirm if mold remediation is included in your coverage. Next, we will visit your home to inspect the water damage and check that the mold was caused by damage from a covered event. We will also develop an estimate of how much it will cost to repair the water damage, remediate the mold, and replace the items that can’t be remediated. You may also be entitled to reimbursement for living expenses if you are unable to live in your home while it is being repaired and remediated. With your permission, we will file a claim with your insurance company and negotiate with them until they pay out the funds that you are owed. While we take care of securing the compensation, you can focus on the more enjoyable parts of the recovery process, such as picking out new paint colors or throw pillows.
