Mold Testing and Inspection in Denver, CO

When should I test for Mold?

If you can see or smell mold, a health risk is present and you should hire a mold testing and inspection professional to confirm if it is or is not mold. If your house has a history of floods, leaks, water damage, plumbing issues, or storm repairs there is a higher probability of mold being present. If you see peeling paint (consider a lead test too) or peeling wall paper, it may be due to moisture and can have potential for mold. If you have been experiencing illness after you moved to a new home, relocated buildings to a new job, or attended a new school, mold may be the underlying issue and a mold test should be done. Often times you will never see the mold, as it is hiding behind your walls, in your ceiling, or in your crawlspace.

The mold testing industry lacks any governmental, environmental, and medical standards. Which is why hiring a professional mold inspector is even more important. 

How Common is Mold?

Molds are very common in buildings and homes. Mold will grow anywhere there is moisture, such as around pipes, leaky roofs, windows, and where there has been flooding. Mold can grow on just about anything too; paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles, wood products, dust, paint, drywall, insulation, and much more. 

How does Mold Affect People?

Mold affects everyone differently. Some people are very sensitive to molds and others not so much. Exposure to mold can lead to symptoms such as a stuffy nose, wheezing, and red or itchy eyes, or skin. People with asthma or allergies to mold may have more intense reactions. If you are exposed to large amounts of mold, severe reactions may include fever and shortness of breath.

In 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued guidance, the WHO Guidelines for Indoor Air Quality: Dampness and Mould. Other studies have shown a potential link of early mold exposure to development of asthma in children, and that improving housing conditions can reduce morbidity from asthma and respiratory allergies.

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