Odds "Not Great" Insurance Company Will Pay for Mold Cleanup
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer
2018-11-15

            Administrators from the Upper Perkiomen School District submitted the bills for the mold cleanup at the Upper Perkiomen High School to its insurance company on Wednesday, Nov. 7, according to Sandra Kassel, the district's business administrator.

            During the Nov. 8 school board meeting, Kassel expressed hope that the district's insurance agent would respond soon. However, she told the members that the chances of the cleanup cost being covered "are not great." A decision by the insurance company could be issued during the current school year, according to Kassel.

            In October, the board approved a $500,000 payment from a money market account with Univest Bank to the company hired to clean up mold at the high school. The total mitigation cost is expected to reach $1 million, according to Kassel.

            She offered the estimate following the board's Oct. 11 public meeting.  "We're not sure if the insurance company is going to accept our claim," she said.

            The district has not received another invoice from BELFOR, the agency hired to clean up mold in the high school, according to Kassel.

            In early September, district officials closed the school for a week while crews from 1Source and BELFOR two "nationally and globally renown, well-established companies,"  treated those mold and moisture problems which mostly impacted classrooms in the 100 and 200 wings, as well as the guidance and the main office, according to Nicole Gum, a communication specialist for the district.

            Crews cleaned every classroom in the impacted wing whether mold was discovered or not, according to Harry Neil, a vice president with 1Source, a company brought in by BELFOR.
