Many homes suffer from water damage at some point. However, even after the restoration process is complete, your home could still face a large number of problems. Not only can your flooring, walls, ceilings, and other belongings get ruined in the initial flood from plumbing or water leaks, but your home can also develop problems in the future such as mold or fungus growth. Mold typically looks like green, blue, or black patches on the walls or ceilings, and in some cases, it can be toxic.
If your home has recently suffered from water damage and now has mold growth, you need financial compensation from your home insurance provider so the mold can be eradicated. Unfortunately, though, some insurance companies wrongfully deny or delay these claims. At Smith Kendall, PLLC, our experienced team of Dallas mold claims lawyers is ready to tackle your case.

Mold typically forms because of a roof leak, leaky pipes, or water intrusion in your home. Some signs of mold growth include:
The presence of mold in your home can compromise your health as well as the value of your property. Thus, if your homeowner’s insurance policy covers repairs for mold damage, you should fight to make sure your claim is fulfilled.
