1. What is Black Mold?
Black mold, also known as stachbotrys chartarum, is a greenish black slimy type of mold. It can grow on material with high cellulose and low nitrogen content such as fiberboard, gypsum board, paper, dust, lint, and Sheetrock. Growth occurs when there is moisture from water damage, excessive humidity, water leaks, condensation, water infiltration, or any type of abnormal flooding. Constant moisture or an ongoing source is required for its growth. All molds should be treated the same with respect to potential health risks and removal.

5. Will Insurance Cover Damage to my Property?
Whether or not the insurance company will cover the damage depends on the source of the damage, what caused the leak, what caused the flood, if it was a natural disaster, or if it was caused by a burst pipe.

7. How Can Sewage Affect my Health as Well as My Family’s Health?
Sewage back-flows are serious health threats to humans. Children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with chronic respiratory problems or weak immune systems are more vulnerable to health risks and must avoid sewage contaminated locations until the water cleanup is completed. Many pathogens can become airborne if sewage is not cleaned and the structure not decontaminated properly or right away.
8. Do You Need a Professional to Evaluate Your Water or Mold Damage?
We strongly encourage calling a professional before contacting your agent. An Anytime technician will arrive at your home, assess the situation and thoroughly explain the process. They will then provide you with a better idea of whether or not your water damage or mold claim can or will be covered by your insurance. At that time, we can also provide a free estimate and walk you through the insurance process to expedite the remediation and restoration work needed to restore your property.
