ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The recent weather trend should be a cause for concern for Southwest Georgia homeowners.

"You have condensation that will form," said Adam's Exterminating Vice President Bridges Sinyard. "That condensation is absorbed by the wood which brings that moisture content up which leads to molds and fungus under houses."

Mold and fungus buildup can lead to your replacing your floor and many parts of your home. That can cost up to $10,000 depending on square footage and it isn't covered by insurance.

"If you have an issue with fungus underneath the house," Sinyard continued. "Home owner's insurance will not cover it and they will not because it is considered general home maintenance."

Officials say the best method to prevent mold and fungus from tearing down your home is to install a de-humidifier or a moisture barrier.
