Mold damage can be extremely costly to repair, so it’s important to understand if your homeowners insurance covers it or not. In general, most policies do cover mold damage caused by sudden and accidental water damage. However, there are cases in which mold damage may not be covered, such as when the policy contains an exclusion for mold-related losses. It is important to read the fine print in your policy and understand exactly what is covered before you make a claim. If you have any questions, contact Five Star Claims Adjusting for more information.
When it comes to mold damage and homeowners insurance coverage, understanding what’s included in your policy is key. Most policies will provide coverage for water damage that results from sudden and accidental incidents like leaking pipes or flooding due to severe weather conditions. It’s important to note that most policies require that repairs be made quickly in order for coverage to still apply; if too much time passes between the incident and the repair, the claim may be denied.
However, some policies contain an exclusion for mold-related losses. This means that even if water damage occurs due to a sudden and accidental event, the costs associated with repairing the resulting mold growth will not be covered by your homeowners insurance policy. As such, it’s important to thoroughly read your policy before filing a claim so you know what kind of coverage you have and what costs may not be covered by your insurer.
