A bit of investigation reveals that mold remediation services are costly. Naturally, a property owner who discovers a mold problem wants to address it as quickly as possible.
Does the homeowner’s insurance policy cover the cost? It might, but mold claims can be extremely complex. Working with Your Insurance Attorney, who is qualified and experienced in mold claims is the best way to ensure that you get the protection you deserve from your insurance policy.
Mold spores require sources like wood, cotton, or drywall and need darkness, warmth, and oxygen to grow. Water damage and leaks can heighten the problem. Frequently, mold is found beneath floors, inside walls, within air conditioning ducts, or ceilings.
This means that people may not know that they have a mold problem until they notice mysterious medical symptoms.
The most common causes of mold problems include leaky pipes, roof leaks, condensation,

Because mold tends to grow in dark, out-of-reach places, it is not always easy to identify a problem until it is already well underway. Mold infestations typically are not apparent to the casual observer until they appear on interior walls, ceilings, and floors. A musty or damp odor is yet another clue that your property may be suffering from mold.
Other people begin to suspect a mold problem when constantly plagued by colds and flu symptoms. Frequent headaches and breathing difficulties can also be telltale signs. If possible, try spending a few days away from the house. If your symptoms disappear, it could be a mold problem in your property that’s causing you to feel sick.
If your home has ever been flooded or experienced a leak from a pipe or the roof, mold could be the culprit behind any unexplained smells or symptoms.
If you suspect that your home is plagued by mold, then it’s wise to act quickly. Mold not only affects your health but can also cause structural damage.
