 The Basics

The short answer is yes, some insurance policies will cover mold damage in Florida. However, this isn't always the case and there are a few other factors that come into play as well.

In terms of businesses, most commercial property insurance policies provide coverage for mold up to a certain limit. However, this coverage only applies if it was caused by a covered peril like fire or water damage (for example).
