Helping South Florida Residents With Their Mold Damage Insurance Claim Handling

Does homeowners insurance cover mold remediation? As most South Florida homeowners know, home mold outbreaks can be deadly. Mold is also a surprising common nuisance. However, most Florida home insurers will only cover the cost of mold remediation under certain circumstances.

As a rule, a homeowner's insurance policy will cover mold damage remediation if mold outbreaks are the result of "covered peril" events.

By comparison, most South Florida home insurers will not cover mold damage resulting from the likes of preventable interior damp. However, there are some exceptions.

When Does Insurance Cover Mold Remediation?

At Fast Public Adjusters in South Florida, we offer expert claim handling support for homeowners affected by mold damage.

In most cases, Florida home insurers will not cover the cost of mold remediation, if they believe that outbreaks would have been preventable. This means that if outbreaks occur after flooding resulting from storms, insurers will pay for remediation.

However, if mold outbreaks occur due to poor damp proofing and home maintenance, most claims will be refused.

Thankfully, there are several ways that public adjusters like ourselves can be successful in settling insurance claims. Some home insurance policies do provide limited coverage for mold damage. Others allow policyholders to purchase special endorsements that cover mold damage claims.

Has mold taken hold in your basement or crawl space? If so, our team at Fast Public Adjusters can asses your policy free of charge to identify whether a claim you make will be successful.

Mold Damage DO’s and DONT’s

DO's

  • Do reach out to mold remediation experts to start planning clean up of affected home areas.

  • Ideally, try and vacate your South Florida home completely until mold damage remediation is successful.
  • Contact Fast Public Adjusters to see if you can claim for mold damage repairs as soon as you notice a problem.

DONT's

What Is a Mold Insurance Claim?

South Florida is famous for year-round summer sunshine and high humidity.

Sadly, high-humidity, condensation, and damp make it easy for mold to take hold in any enclosed area. Good home ventilation, forced air heating systems, and air conditioning systems, are often enough to prevent mold outbreaks. However, if mold does take hold, your home can quickly become uninhabitable.

In many cases, residential mold outbreaks are the result of leaking pipes and damp in basements and crawl spaces. Mold also becomes more likely if your home is flooded during storms or as a result of backups in sewer lines.

When mold damage occurs as a result of flooding and sewer line backups, insurers will usually cover the cost of remediation. At fast Public Adjusters, we help you receive the maximum settlement possible for mold damage remediation. This being the case, if you are in the midst of an outbreak, make sure to reach out to one of our team today.

  • Authority notification: We will require details of any public authorities that you have notified about mold outbreaks. (Health care workers, local Police and Fire Departments, etc.)
  • Emergency service companies & damage mitigation: If a contractor has already performed mold remediation work, we will need their details, as well as a clear breakdown of remediation costs.
