Many homes suffer from water damage at some point. Not only can your flooring, walls, ceilings, and other belongings become damaged by water leaks, your property can also develop problems from mold growth. Some policies provide coverage for such damage. Mold typically looks like green, blue, or black patches on the walls or ceilings.
If your home has recently suffered from water damage and now has mold growth, you will need the funds to properly eradicate the mold. Unfortunately, though, some insurance companies wrongfully delay or outright deny these claims. In fact, the delayed investigation of a claim could lead to mold growth. At Grisham & Kendall, PLLC, our experienced team of lawyers are ready to tackle your case. Contact us at (713) 999-5085 and schedule your consultation to discuss your legal options.
Mold tends to grow in dark, damp areas, so you may not notice it until the fungus has already flourished and spread within your home. If your home has suffered from water damage, you need to have the affected area properly inspected for mold growth. Mold can form because of a roof leak, leaking plumbing lines, or other forms of water intrusion into your home. Some signs of mold growth include:
The presence of mold in your home can negatively affect the value of your property. Thus, if your homeowner’s insurance policy covers repairs for mold damage, you should fight to make sure that your property damage claim is fully investigated and paid.
