When thinking of harmful household threats, mold often doesn’t come to mind. However, mold damage caused by floods is a problem that more and more homeowners seem to face.
While consumers say that mold should be covered by insurance, insurance companies say that for providing a service unconventional to standard homeowners’ insurance, prices would have to go up. However, mold is preventable.
1. Get the facts on mold. For many, the thought of a mold infestation is terrifying. However, to know how to fight something, one first must understand what it is and how it works. Mold is a fungi that occurs under moist, humid conditions and can produce harmful allergens and irritants.
2. Figure out which service to hire. Determining which mold damage remediation service to use can depend on a variety of factors. One thing to take into consideration is the scale of the infestation.
