Mold Growth after a Flood

Northern and Central Texas see their fair share of severe weather, especially when it comes to sudden and severe rain. This can easily lead to flood conditions, even in Dallas, which can then cause damage to your home or business. In some cases, water damage from floods can also increase the chances of mold, which has dangers of its own that you may have to face.

Unfortunately, getting insurance assistance after a flood can be unusually difficult, particularly when dealing with issues such as mold growth. However, if the reason a person is struggling to get insurance coverage is because of an insurance company’s improper actions, he or she can take legal action to pursue the coverage they believe they are owed.

Dangers of Mold Growth after a Flood

Although mold can grow under any circumstances, it is especially common after a food. This is due to the large amounts of water and usually long period of time that damp or wet conditions are allowed to persist.

Depending on where the mold grows, it can present a number of different issues. One of the most major concerns associated with mold growth is the danger it can present to people’s health. As certain molds can even be life-threatening, it is necessary to remove the mold immediately. Because it can be costly to get mold removed, especially in large amounts and hard to reach areas, getting insurance coverage for these costs can be critical.
