Does home insurance cover mold removal?

Some mold has developed in my basement. I'm dreading having to fork over a ton of money to get rid of it. Will my insurance help cover removal?

Generally speaking, mold in and of itself isn’t covered by home insurance. However, if your property develops mold as a result of something else that is covered by your homeowners insurance, then removal will be covered.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
