Does Your Jackson County Business or Home Have A Mold Problem?

In a typical water flooding event, if not mitigated quickly, mold can spread through a business location or a home in as little as 48 hours.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to mitigate your mold infestation.

Changes in General Liability Insurance Regarding Sick Buildings

Be Aware Of The Changes In General Liability Coverage And Terms Often Used To Exclude Mold Claims.

An increase in mold insurance claims and litigation has led to changes in most commercial general liability policies over the years. Primarily, these changes have been instituted to reduce premiums and eliminate most mold coverage. Typically, these issues are grouped in with sick structure exposures, a term used to describe normal business risks and contractor responsibility. As a commercial operator, you should be aware of the changes in general liability coverage, and terms often used to exclude mold claims.

1. Pollution Exclusion

Most insurers will view a mold claim as an environmental or toxic tort claim, meaning that mold falls under the pollution exclusion. While there are arguments to be made about the validity of mold as a pollutant under the standard definitions, there is currently no dissenting or judicial opinion as to the applicability of the exclusion for the claims.

2. Business Risk

Many mold insurance claims are rejected because they are deemed a business risk issue, meaning that the fungus is a result of poor quality or craftsmanship. These exclusions lay the blame on property owners or contractors, and stipulate that the responsibility for repair is theirs.

3. Fungi or Bacteria Exclusion Endorsement

The Fungi or Bacteria Exclusion Endorsement is an amendment to many commercial general liability policies. This endorsement excludes the costs associated with mold cleanup and remediation. It also eliminates personal injury.

4. Limited Fungi and Bacteria Coverage Endorsement

While most policy changes have meant bad news for mold claims, the Limited Fungi and Bacteria Coverage Endorsement means that property owners may have some relief from mitigation costs. This endorsement may cover some of the expenses associated with mold remediation in the Jackson County, Oregon area. However, the aggregate limit is likely lower than previously offered.

Before submitting mold insurance claims, review your policy and take note of any of the above changes. While insurers are looking for ways to reduce exposure to fungi and bacteria demands, there may still be endorsements that can help. Reach out to your insurance company and discuss the coming changes and your concerns.

Soot Damage and Insurance

Good news is that in most cases, damage from smoke will be covered under your commercial insurance policy.  Remember the sooner you act upon following these steps, could help improve the restoration of your property to its pre-damaged condition.  Your preparedness could also help with your insurance company getting quick approval on your claim.

  • Get in touch with your insurance company or agent and file a claim, report the smoke damage.
  • Call a professional smoke cleanup company to help assess your loss and provide details of the cleanup process.
  • Take photos of any damaged items, and documents, receipts for any repairs that need to be performed.
  • Know that your insurance company will send an adjuster to survey the damage.     
  • Know that your insurance company will require proof that the money they pay you will be going towards your restoration and repair.     

Smoke damage claims and the efforts to communicate with your adjuster may be challenging.  However, if you have done your due diligence in following these steps, your post-fire experience can be a positive one.
