Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Mold?
We understand that many homeowners and business owners do not plan or budget for mold removal services. Mold removal or mold remediation can be an expensive process. Whether or not mold is covered by insurance is a question that many ask and are unsure of.
Understanding your own policy is very important to know whether you are covered for mold issues. Basic homeowner insurance policy excludes the coverage of damage caused by mold growth. Some policies will cover damages if it can be associated to an actual loss that was covered and the mold is a result of that loss (for example – big water damage causing mold). Coverage is mainly dependent on the source of the moisture and the cause of the growth.

Hiring a handyman can result in major cross-contamination throughout your property and thereby, it is crucial to choose an experienced and professional mold removal company.
