WATER & MOLD DAMAGE

WATER & MOLD DAMAGE

Water damage is common and can result in huge financial and emotional losses. Damage from water can occur in several ways. Hurricanes or storms can cause damage to your home or business by allowing water to enter the structure from openings created by high winds. Broken pipes and floods are also common causes of water damage.

Any time water damage is discovered, you must act promptly to locate the source of the water and take reasonable steps to stop further water from entering the structure and causing more damage. You should also try to dry out the areas where water was present, provided it is safe to re-enter the home or business. You may need to hire a reputable water remediation company to dry out the area and apply a mildewcide to prevent mold growth.

WHAT ABOUT MOLD DAMAGE?

Mold is common in Florida. Mold can grow because of water damage or flooding. Mold damage may be covered under a property insurance policy with a “cap” on the amount of the coverage.

Molds use tiny spores to reproduce. Mold spores move through the indoor and outdoor air continually. When mold spores land on damp surfaces indoors, they may begin growing.

When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth often occurs, particularly if the moisture remains undiscovered or un-addressed. Unfortunately, there is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment besides controlling moisture levels.
