Does My Property Insurance Cover Mold Removal?

Mold can grow extremely quickly in the Florida heat and humidity, even indoors. It can also be extremely dangerous to your health and result in property damage. If you discover mold inside your home, you may be wondering if your standard homeowner's insurance policy covers it.

Typically, most insurance policies only cover damages caused by "covered perils," which are those events and accidents that occur which the insurance company has agreed to cover. Covered perils are usually things like water damage caused by a broken pipe or a windstorm causing your roof to leak, resulting in interior water damage.

Mold presents a unique problem for homeowners because it may not be obvious immediately and may appear long after the claim has been handled, although it has been caused by the initial claim. Additionally, mold caused by flooding may not be covered by a standard homeowner's insurance policy and require a separate flood policy.

If your claim for mold is being denied by your insurance company, or you represent a water restoration company whose claim is being denied by your client's insurance company, contact our office today for a consultation.

Client Reviews
"I was told by my insurance adjuster that Rina was a fabulous attorney who will fight hard for her clients and he was right. She did an outstanding job communicating with me throughout a stressful negotiation process and I was so happy with the settlement she got for me. Highly recommend the Law Offices of Rina Feld!” Mark L.
I had water damage to the inside of my home and homeowners insurance automatically rejected my claim. After giving up fighting them on my own i contacted Rina and she petsonally discussed options and explained the procedure. After about 4 months my claim was resolved , Rina worked pro bono so did not cost me a penny. I now have new ceilings ! Thoroughly recommended. Christopher D.
Rina is very efficient. She always kept me updated and worked very quickly. She took the time to explain everything thoroughly and made sure that I understood, although my primary language is Spanish. Mariel C.
