The major concern about having mold in your Florida home is that mold can be toxic, which can lead to a significant amount of property damage. Additionally, toxic mold can result in health problems for you and your family. In fact, living with toxic mold can lead to:
- Breathing problems;
- Flu-like symptoms;
- Sore throat; and
- Mental anguish and depression.
Mold can also erode your ceilings and your walls, and cause rot underneath your carpets. If you suspect that your Florida home has mold, then you need to get it checked out right away. Call an inspector to investigate the areas of your home where mold might be a problem.
If mold is in fact discovered in your home, then you will need to have it removed by a professional. This removal can get expensive depending on where the mold is located and what parts of your home need to be torn down and/or replaced. You may also need to pay for the costs of repairs, and temporary relocation if your home is deemed unsuitable for living.
You may also need to pay the medical expenses from mold-related health issues. However, you may be compensated for all of this through a Florida homeowners insurance claim. If mold is discovered in your home, then you should call a Florida homeowners insurance claim attorney. An attorney can investigate your case, and tell you if you are eligible to file a claim. Your attorney can also represent you and your best interests when dealing with the insurance company.
