Diane in Laurel, Mississippi

I just found out that my house has mold. My floor and floor joistes are rotted from the mold. I had a pipe leak under my deck which was hidden and we did not know that it was leaking. I have mold coverage on my insurance policy. Call the insurance and they sent out an agent. He would not go under the house to check the joistes or anything .

He just walked round the house and took pictures. Well, bad news, he said they would not pay because of something I did not understand. I don’t know why i have been paying for mold coverage if they won’t pay for!

  1. Diane – Thank you for sharing your story! I’m sorry to hear about the claim denial. Dealing with insurance can be frustrating. Do you recall any details of the reason that the agent gave?

  2. Hi Diane, Please go to http://www.unitedpolicyholders.org and you may be able to have some kind of recourse with your insurance. Our first recommendation as a mold company is to recommend contacting a public adjuster to consult when insurance is involved. They work on a contingency basis and are payed after there is an insurance settlement.

  3. Diane, I think the reason there was no coverage was it was outdoors (the deck). Generally, insurance will cover mold indoors when it forms as a result of a “covered Loss” such as a pipe break that wets some drywall and mold forms on it.
    I have restored property losses for 33 years.

  4. Too bad to hear about your claim denial. This type of situations is why us here at Vital Oxide promote prevention and cleaning with our mold efficient products!
