With the warm, humid conditions in south Florida, businesses and homes are extremely susceptible to experiencing mold damage. Unfortunately, the moist and humid environment makes for a perfect breeding ground for mold. If you spot mold in your home or business, you should take this seriously and get professional help as it could pose as a potential health risk.
How Does Mold Grow?
In order for mold to grow, two conditions must be met. First, mold thrives in moist environments. A moist environment can come from a number of different sources such as leaky pipes, ruptured appliance hoses, high humidity in the air and so much more. However, moisture isn’t the only thing mold needs to grow. It must also have a food source. For mold, good sources of food can come from things like carpeting, mattresses, dry wall, installation and other similar items.
Filing a Mold Damage Claim
If you discover mold damage in your home then you may need to file a claim with your insurance provider. Although this may be your first instinct, it’s far better to contact a public insurance adjuster first. Unlike an insurance adjuster, a public insurance adjuster works on behalf of the policy holder. This ensures that you receive a settlement that is not only fair but also properly covers the cost to replace damages.
By calling a public insurance adjuster before calling your insurance provider, you’ll have someone fighting for your rights.
With a public insurance adjuster, you’ll get:
- Comprehensive support and representation from start to finish
- Access to the latest software and equipment
- Accurate and expert property appraisals
- Experienced and licensed professionals on your side
