After paying out huge settlements to clean up mold damage, homeowner insurers pulled back from issuing new policies on homes where a water damage claim had been made within the last five years.

They also minimized their exposure to mold claims by excluding mold coverage altogether or limiting their coverage. Currently a common cap on such claims is $5,000, although this can vary from one company to the next.
