Prevalence of Mold in Homes
Mold can be found in just about any home, and there is no way to completely eradicate it. Treatment consists of keeping all areas of your home as dry as possible, and killing existing mold to prevent it from spreading.
Mold will continue to grow in any moist areas. It will spread in bathrooms, carpeting, a damp basement, the wood inside walls of your home, compost piles and rotting grass or wood outside.
Ask companies for references, and do some Internet research to educate yourself on the types of mold you might have and the proper removal processes. This will prepare you for your discussions with professionals.
Insurance companies have a vested interest in paying the least possible on a claim. They know that the homeowner does not have enough expertise to understand the extent of the damage, the costs to repair it, the proper way to document the damage, or the hidden limitations in their insurance policy.
