Stachybotrys has often found itself in the media spotlight, mostly due to its ability to produce mycotoxins. In years past, stachybotrys was implicated in several cases of severe illness and even infant fatalities. However, upon closer scrutiny, the medical community determined toxic mold was not a contributing factor.
Because many of our customers are involved in time sensitive real estate transactions, we must maintain a quick response time. Within the Puget Sound, we maintain a maximum 2 day lead time from the phone call to inspection. Often, we can arrive in even less time. If laboratory air samples are collected, an additional 24 to 48 hours is required. Rush analysis is also available for clients on a strict timeline.
In the past, many insurers included coverage for mold damage. Due to many frivolous and expensive claims, the majority of policies now either limit or exclude mold related coverage. However, mold growth is also related to a moisture issue, and often the moisture issue is covered. For example, if a broken pipe led to water damage and mold growth occurred, much of the work would be covered. Insurance companies are required to restore an insured home to pre-loss condition. Long standing issues such as mold growth in attics, are rarely covered.
