Mold Related Health Risks
Mold is a category of fungus that grows on organic matter and travels through the air searching for a favorable environment. Mold sends it’s spores into the air and while certain amounts of mold spores are in virtually every breath we take, an increased exposure to mold in higher concentrations can lead to a long list of health risks. The most common of which include:
Rash & Skin Irritation
Develop or Worsen Asthma
Coughing & Sneezing

Common Questions About Mold
Every breath of air we take has mold spores in it. These spores travel around hoping to land on a moist surface, with plenty of oxygen and organic matter to sustain it while it produces and releases more spores. If anywhere on your property has poor air flow or is saturated to some extent, like in the aftermath of water damage, mold will inevitably begin to grow.
Black mold is a bit of a misnomer. There are actually several types of mold that appear black and most are not substantially more dangerous than the other. In order to identify the type of mold that you have in your home, and in doing so figure ut the health risks of that mold, you will need to have the air in your home tested.
Different molds require different types of cleaning solutions. While bleach can be effective against some molds, others will be relatively unmoved by the bleach and by wiping at the mold, you may end up spreading it and doing more damage. This is why it’s always a good idea to contact a local mold removal company to recieve an expert opinion.
The Mold Removal & Mold Remediation Process
1. Mold Damage Inspection
If you have, or suspect you may have, mold damage in your Westminster MA home or business, call SOS Rescue Restoration for a professional mold damage inspection. We will immediately send an IICRC certified technician to your property to complete a comprehensive mold damage inspection.
2. Air Quality Test
When we find mold, it is practically impossible to properly identify the type of mold by simply looking at it. We will need to test the air within your property to truly understand the extent of the mold growth and the types of mold we are dealing with. This will also give us a reference to use after the mold has been removed.
Because mold travels through the air, when removing the mold, any commotion will release spores into the air, and will begin to spread. To prevent the mold from spreading to the rest of your property, our team will establish a containment barrier using plastic sheeting and creating a negative air pressure environment with HEPA filtered air blowers.
4. Mold Removal
Our technicians will move in and begin strategically removing any mold damaged materials from your property. This process will be completed following the most recently accepted guidelines for mold removal.
5. Air Clearance Test
After the mold has been removed, we will perform another air quality test, comparing indoor air to the outdoor air to ensure that no extra mold spores are being generated from within your property.
6. Mold Damage Repairs
SOS Rescue Restoration is a comprehensive restoration company and licensed general contractor. Our experience allows us to handle all mold damage repairs needed to fully restore your property.
Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Mold Damage?
Mold damage is something that is not traditionally covered by a basic homeowner’s insurance plan. In part this is because mold growth is generally a result of some level of negligence. With that said, there are cases where mold damage will commonly be covered. For example, when mold begins to grow on an area that was recently affected by a water disaster, your insurance company may see that as extended damages from a covered disaster.
In any case, you should always call your insurance provider to see what your exact coverage is, as all plans vary.
