All homeowners hope that if an issue occurs with their home, their insurance will cover the cost. The truth of the matter is, that’s not always the case. The answer lies with the source of the mold. If your home has suffered mold damage, you may be wondering, “Is mold remediation covered by homeowner’s insurance?”
Ask the experts: Is Mold Remediation Covered by Homeowner’s Insurance?
Unfortunately, this is not a simple yes or no question. The more important question is, what caused the mold? If you call your insurance company to report mold caused by a flood, you’ll quickly be told that any damage caused by flooding is categorically not covered by homeowner’s insurance. Mold caused by poor maintenance on the part of the homeowner also is not going to be covered. However, if mold in your home was caused by something such as a pipe suddenly bursting, you have a good chance of getting mold remediation covered. To find out for sure, you’ll need to carefully read your insurance policy as well as contact your insurance company.
