Mold is a type of fungi that can be found anywhere in nature but is particularly dangerous in Florida. Although its spores can fly around anywhere, mold needs moisture to grow, which is why it’s most common in damp and dark places. Mold also releases toxins into the air that can trigger allergies and respiratory issues. You often have low mold limits in your policy and how you handle mold should be advised by legal counsel.
Extreme cases of mold growth require extensive work and professional expertise to eliminate the problem correctly. Depending on the extent of the mold, contractors might have to wear protective equipment, seal the area to prevent the mold from spreading, and remove the affected surfaces entirely. Afterward, the site could undergo an extensive cleaning process with HVAC systems and bleach-based disinfectants.
