New York Image Slide Mold Testing and Inspections

If you are a renter in New York, you should, and likely do, already have renter’s insurance. You may not know that even if you have renter’s insurance, it is unlikely that mold inspection, mold remediation, and mold damage repair, is covered. There are insurance companies that offer this coverage, but they are few and far between. However, if your insurance does cover mold issues, your insurance company will likely reimburse your out of pocket expenses, such as mold testing and inspection. Read your policy thoroughly. Look for words like “microbial,” and “anti-fungal,” in your policy. That will tell you if you have mold coverage.

Mold testing and inspection is well worth the cost in spite of having mold coverage or not.

Should My Landlord Pay For Mold Testing In My New York Rental Property

The better question is probably, “will my landlord pay for mold testing?” The laws in New York, like most of the country, do not require your landlord to pay for mold testing. Even if it were mandatory for your landlord to pay for testing, it you would be smart to hire your own independent mold inspection company. 

Why should you pay for something if you don’t have to? Of course, no one wants to spend their money unnecessarily services that could be free. But, hiring your own mold inspection company means that that company is beholden to you, not your landlord. If your landlord pay for the inspection, they do not have to share the results with you. That means that you won’t really know whether or not you have mold and, if you do, what kinds of mold you have. This is especially important if you are having mold illness symptoms. 

Also, if you do have mold and your landlord refuses to hire a remediation company, you may have to go to court. Having the results of your independent mold inspection in hand means you have solid proof your home is unsafe. Especially if your landlord is refusing to fulfill their legal obligation to you, their renter.

 

How Do I Know If My Symptoms Are Mold Related?

The symptoms of mold illness vary widely from person to person. Non-toxic molds can be relatively innocuous unless you are sensitive to mold allergies.  Toxic molds, such as black mold, can cause serious and fatal illnesses. It may seem odd that something so small it can’t be seen with the naked eye can cause such horrific health problems, but really that small size makes it easier for mold spores not only to fly through the air, but to find their way into your lungs and the rest of your body.

Calling Mold Test USA for a thorough mold inspection is the first step towards renewed health and a safe home!
