If you suspect that you have a mold infestation in your home, it is important to act fast in order to prevent health complications and further growth. Here is a quick Q&A covering a few of the most important issues important to homeowners with a potential mold problem.
If you have mold in your home or place of business, you’re probably hoping the cost of solving this trouble will be covered by your insurance. Many people simply assume that their homeowner’s insurance will pay for any unexpected issue that arises with their home through no fault of their own.
To better understand how remediation works, you first need to know what you are up against and the biology of most molds.
Every home has its little problems. Your home may have a squeaky stair, a light that flickers in the laundry room, or a screen door with an over-enthusiastic spring. You have probably grown used to the way the roof sounds when it rains or how you have to reset the breaker every time someone accidentally makes coffee and popcorn at the same time.
Mold can have a substantial impact on your standard of living. It can negatively impact a number of health conditions, it can create ugly sights and smells in your home, and it can cost you an unfortunate amount of money to clean up. That is why EPA guidelines for mold remediation are so strict.
