Commercial mold damage claims

Navigating your insurance claim with a healthy building in mind

For business owners, the word “mold” is not a complimentary term when relating to their building’s health. Nothing can devastate a business more than encountering the circumstances related to having employees becoming affected and customers reluctant to enter a business’s premise due to strong mold odors. By producing tiny spores that become airborne, mold can spread throughout a commercial property within 2-4 days of a wetting occurrence. In order to continue to grow, mold colonies simply need three things, moisture, oxygen and material. Issues related to commercial mold damage such as wall materials (drywall), wood framing, baseboards, flooring, insulation, air ducts & HVAC systems and other interior finishes are just some of the many concerns one should have when dealing with a mold claim. Properly identifying and investigation other potential issues such as mold testing, stopping cause of high moisture levels, removing unsalvageable materials, containment, mold remediation, & post- remediation repairs may create larger obstacles to the simple apparent cosmetic damage to finishes that an insurance company’s adjuster may just consider.

Our experienced commercial claim public adjusters will properly address and identify underlying issues that yourself and insurance company may not understand. Many of these issues will be difficult to investigate and document once certain repairs are made to the property. This is simply why it is encouraged to contact a commercial claim public adjuster at the early stages of your commercial mold damage claim. Floridian International Adjusters can assist business owners & managers on new claims, underpaid claims, and even claims that have been denied coverage under the commercial insurance policy.
