You buy a flood, water and mold insurance policy to financially protect yourself and your home from unforseen natural and man made disasters that could cause water, mold and fire damage. However, homeowners’ insurance policies are not all the same and do not necessarily cover all types of water and mold damage. For example, some Dallas Fort Worth water damage insurance claims may cover water damage due to leaky and frozen pipes, but will deny flood insurance claims. However, some insurance policies may deny mold remediation claims that result from leaky pipes. Insurance policies vary by state and many Dallas, Texas water damage insurance policies vary by coverage, so you must do your due diligence and read and understand all the information in your water and mold damage insurance policy prior to signing on the dotted line.
