It is very common within the Michiana area due to leaky basements, roofs or plumbing supply and drain lines. Mold issues cost homeowners anywhere from a few hundred to tens of thousands of dollars.

Is This Covered by Insurance?
Yes and No
Insurance companies that cover mold include it as a separate rider on insurance policies. Unfortunately, some do not cover it at all. To be certain, have an open and honest talk with your agent and ask them directly. If you are not currently insured, consider expanding your coverage. If you currently have mold and no insurance, call our offices to see how we can still be of help.
Types Of Mold
Molds are the most common form of fungi on Earth, growing both indoors and outdoors. Most kinds are helpful and important for breaking down material in nature and turning them into compost for new growth. Problems develop when it starts growing on materials inside buildings and starts to damage or destroy them. Also, it becomes a problem when it causes allergies or health issues to residents or tenants.
Mold and mildew are often used as interchangeable terms . However, scientifically, mildew refers to the type of fungus that grows on plants (such as powdery mildew on roses). People often call the fungi that grows in their bathrooms or on their clothes “mildew”, but technically it is mold. Whether indoors, outdoors, in your vehicle or on various materials. So, no matter what you call it, if you need information about how to deal with it, we can help.
How Mold Grows
Mold grows in damp, moist and warm conditions. The spores, which are tiny seed-like organisms, float through the air and grow wherever they land, if conditions are right. These fungi grow fast and spread quickly. Therefore, you want to get rid of them the minute you suspect any growth or smell a musty odor that indicates their presence.
Mold appears in nearly every color of the rainbow, the most familiar types being white, green, red, black or brown. Visual indicators, such as color, are not always reliable indicators of the exact variety or potential risks. Distinguishing between different types of mold is difficult without laboratory sampling. Testing is the best way to accurately determine the species, and help you determine the right course of action.
Varieties of Mold
Different types have different shapes, colors and textures. It can be slimy, cottony, or powdery in texture and grow in a variety of patterns. Some are more dangerous or more toxic than others.
In regard to health risks, molds can be divided into three types.
First, there is allergenic. This is a type of mold that may cause allergic reactions in susceptible individuals.
Second, there is Pathogenic. This is a type that may cause infections in people with compromised immune systems.
Third, is Toxigenic, which can be toxic to everyone.
The most common types of mold that create problems for health and property include:
|Green Mold||Stachybotrys – Black Mold|
|Red Mold||White Mold|
It’s important to act quickly to get rid of mold because it spreads quickly.
A small spot can take over a whole area, wall, ceiling or room in no time. It begins to reproduce in as little as 48 hours.
Also, mold can damage and destroy possessions and property. This includes the hidden structure that are holding up the building itself.
Furthermore, it can be a health risk! Ranging from minor allergies to serious respiratory conditions.
