Unfortunately, choosing the right company to purchase your insurance from can be confusing and frustrating. There are several important exclusions from the basic homeowner's policy that every homeowner should be aware of. Mold is one of the most prominent. In many humid and wet climates, most homeowners are almost assured to run into mold problems at some point. It is important that you take steps to minimize or even prevent damage if possible.

A burst pipe, damage from a storm, or rising water can cause mold, or even improper ventilation can lead to an infestation of mold. No matter the source, insurance coverage for either mold or water damage varies a great deal with different policies, or can be excluded altogether. Some insurers offer ten thousand dollars of limited coverage, but a higher amount is available for those who are interested.

Insurance claims that include mold damage are significantly higher than those without. Certain molds pose not only a risk for property damage, but significant health risks as well.

Make sure you read your insurance policy carefully so that you know your options concerning water or mold damage. If you have any questions or concerns make sure to speak with your agent or broker.
