Mold Testing and Inspection in Denver, CO

When Should You Test for Mold?

If you can see mold, or smell it, there is a risk to your health.

If your home has a history of water damage from floods, leaks, plumbing issues or storm repairs, there is a high probability you have mold.

If you see peeling paint (which should also be tested for lead if built before 1978) or peeling wallpaper, it can be caused by moisture, resulting in mold.

If you are feeling ill after moving to a new home or working in a different building or attending a new school, mold may be the cause.

Often, you never see mold if it is hiding behind walls, in your ceiling or crawlspace.

Hire a mold testing & inspection professional to determine if you have mold.

How Common is Mold?

Mold grows anywhere there is moisture … around pipes, leaky roofs, windows, or where there has been flooding.

Mold grows on almost anything … paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles, floor boards, wood products, dust, paint, drywall, insulation, and many other things.

How Does Mold Affect You?

Mold affects people in different ways. Some people are extremely sensitive to mold, others not so much.

Mold exposure can cause symptoms like stuffy nose, wheezing, and red or itchy eyes or skin. 

People with asthma or allergies to mold usually experience more intense reactions. Exposure to large amounts of mold may cause severe reactions including fever and shortness of breath.

In 2009, The World Health Organization (WHO) issued the WHO Guidelines for Indoor Air Quality: Dampmness and Mould.

Other studies have shown a possible link between early exposure to mold with the development of asthma in children.

People with existing immune issues or lung disease are more susceptible to fungal infections and may experience breathing difficulties.

Improving the conditions in your home can reduce morbidity from asthma and respiratory allergies.

Jeremey was super professional, polite and knew his work. Went above and beyond what I expected in his performance. I’ve owned my own hvac/plumbing companies and would definitely hire this man if he was looking for work. Will stay with this company and ask for him every time I need future inspection services.

Mike and his team did lead paint testing on our home before getting our windows replaced. We had a mix-up on arrival times, but they were in and out very quickly and easy to get a hold of! If we ever need testing again I'll give Teton a call.
