John Hassler owner of Indoor Environmental Management, in Tallahasse, FL was recently featured in Moms Everyday, speaking about a subject he knows like very few other profession in the area: mold damage and insurance coverage. His company specializes in basement and crawl space waterproofing, mold and moisture control and indoor air quality management.
The deal on a weekly basis with the disastrous consequences of mold growth the expensive damages it causes.
According to John, when it comes the time to seek insurance coverage for mold damages, a lot of homeowners are left out in the cold.
That is mainly because they did not understand what types of coverage they were entitled to.
"They may not have mold coverage at all, the coverage that they do have may be inadequate, there may be special exclusions in their policy that they weren't aware of, or certain instructions with regard to mitigation efforts that they should undertake. This can affect their coverage. It can affect the amount or whether they are even denied coverage." , explains John.
The cost of mold cleanup and remediation can be pretty steep, and for this reason John urges area homeowners to take a good look at their policies, and make sure they have all the coverage they need, should they need it. If they don't have enough coverage, or can't understand the terms John recommends calling the insurance broker, asking all the questions and making all the necessary adjustments.
The humid, hot weather in Florida makes homes specially prone to mold problems, so it is always in your best interest to make sure you are covered.
