Mold damage is one of those words that strike fear in most people, especially when it may be growing in your home.

Mold damage may or may not be covered by your homeowners’ insurance policy.  Often, the cause of the water intrusion which led to the mold growth must be covered for the resulting mold to possibly be covered.  Always perform routine maintenance to your home.  Regular painting of the exterior and roof inspections can prevent the dreaded mold in some instances.  Other times, a small drip or leaking pipe behind a wall may be feeding mold and its growth is unseen.  A good indicator may be a musty smell or damp feeling to a room or area of your home.  Pay attention to your insurance policy each year when it renews to see if mold coverage is included or if it is available.
