Moisture Intrusion and Mold Prevention Programs Can Reduce Losses and Insurance Premiums
Severity of storm events has risen over the last 5 years, bringing increased losses due to subsequent moisture and water damage. Insurance carriers recognize the value and effectiveness of a proactive approach to minimize or prevent damage from moisture and mold.
A professionally “well developed” Moisture Intrusion and Mold Prevention Program results in reduced risk, liability, third party health claims, additional property damage and losses and in some cases reduced insurance premiums and/or additional coverage for losses.
Important facts to know:
If you are carrying environmental insurance, your carrier may require you to have a Moisture Intrusion and Mold Prevention Program for your facility.
By implementing a Moisture Intrusion and Mold Prevention Program you could increase your coverage for an "indoor environmental condition "event”.
There is a definite financial benefit available to building owners if they adopt a facility specific program and are trained accordingly, as it will decrease the potential for larger loss claims from secondary damage associated with moisture intrusion and migrations through building materials.
