PIA Hosts Mold/Moisture Management Summit

November 24, 2005

The PIA Western Alliance is hosting a summit on moisture management/mold control from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Jan. 12, 2006, at the Doubletree Suites Southcenter in Seattle. The goal is to build awareness and policies within the insurance industry, realtors, contractors and lenders that preventative steps can be taken to reduce their exposure to losses resulting from moisture damage, according to PIA.

PIA said the technology, when used to guide the moisture management evaluation, provides a understandable assessment of a property in terms of existing problems and identifies issues that — if addressed immediately — will normally not become a claim in the future. When builders implement this moisture management system, liabilities claims will decline and health claims associated with mold exposure can be reduced, PIA said.

Participants will be encouraged to begin the process of developing policies to implement this type of technology around the nation.
