We purchase homeowners insurance to protect our homes, and for the peace of mind that house insurance protection can bring. But what can we do when mold builds up in our home, and how can we prevent it in the first place?
Homeowners in Pennsylvania, and in eastern and southeastern states in general, tend to live in humid climates with plentiful rainfall. This combination makes these homes more susceptible to moisture and mold buildup, especially in older homes with porous foundations. Therefore, homeowners must take extra care to watch for signs of moisture and mold, and to act quickly to resolve such problems before they become a serious health threat.
Is Mold in My Home, and What Can I Do?
Simply put, if you can see it or smell it, then you have mold, and should take immediate action to remove it. The first step is to find and eliminate the water source. Then the mold must be cleaned with a detergent solution and all materials must be thoroughly dried. Depending on the scope of the problem, professional help may be required, which may be covered under your homeowner’s insurance policy (contact us for details).
