    Post: Insurance Adjuster leaves us in black mold

    Posted by Mary Jensen on 11/03/10

    Sears sold two female senior citizens a water and ice
    maker frig 5 yrs ago. My mother now 87 yr old. The cheap
    plastic tube burst as they do. The cheap plastic is known
    to burst. Sears never informed us of the problem or told
    us to get copper pipes.

    The hose burst dumping over 1,000 gallons of water within
    20 hrs. into the basement bedrooms. Farmers insurance
    adjusters did not inform us we now had a black mold
    growing as it took them 4 days to appraise. They cut a
    piece of carpet out of the 2nd flooded bedroom to anylyze.
    Told me they would pay for new carpet and pad. But they
    allowed $3.56 to remove moldy carpet, $3. for new carpet
    pad, $50. on carpeting. The black mold was growing right
    by the door. Never informed me. Could not find people to
    remove black mold carpet. Someone from Farmers called a
    disaster team. Told them I was to go into the mold room to
    remove contents as they had paid the property owner $60.00
    to do this. The same adjuster also paid $80. to launder
    clothes telling me to wash them for the property owner he
    lives out of town). I was already sick by this time. A
    handy man was helping me. He kept insisting moisture was
    behind the wall. Adjuster ignored him. Handy man came back
    with a meter after the adjusters left moisture was behind
    the wall. Everyone in the house got sick. Black mold is
    dangerous ifeel violated.
