What is Mold Remediation?

Mold remediation is the removal of molds from your environment, for example your house or apartment.

Who Should Conduct Mold Remediation Work?

There are many different types of mold that could be present in your home.  Generally the homeowner or tenant can remove small amounts of harmless mold.  However, some types of mold can cause allergic reactions and illness.  When these types of mold have infested your house or apartment, you will probably need the expertise of hazardous materials removal workers.  These workers are trained to take special precautions to protect themselves and the surrounding areas from being contaminated by the mold.

Why Should I Trust a Mold Remediator?

Most states now have laws specifically designed to ensure that mold remediators in those states are adequately trained and licensed.  If you are still hesitant, check the mold remediator's credentials against what your state's law requires.

Will My Insurance Cover the Cost of Mold Remediation?

Mold remediation is usually covered in a homeowner insurance policy, under water damages, unless the policy specifically states otherwise.

Do I Need a Lawyer to Help With My Mold Remediation?

If you are a tenant whose landlord refuses to hire a mold remediator, a good landlord-tenant lawyer will be able to advise you of your rights.  As a homeowner, if your feel that your home has a mold problem that requires remediation and your insurance company will not pay, consult a lawyer who will be able to help you assert your rights and keep your home safe.
