Colorado Springs Mold Removal
Mold Remediation Experts
Mold Removal is not a subject most business or home owners want to think about, but it can be an unpleasant necessity at times. Whether it's a result of leaky pipes, flooding, or improper moisture control, mold can be a dangerous risk to personal property and individual health. Mold deteriorates the air quality in your home or business and can cause cough, sinus issues, and increased allergy or asthma symptoms. In the most severe cases, black mold can lead to vomiting, nausea, and bleeding in the lungs. In Colorado Springs, CO, there are trained professionals ready to help you with all aspects of a potential mold problem.
Mold Inspection & Testing
If you are suffering from symptoms of mold exposure, or suspect mold based on a recent flood or leaky pipes, you should call one of our licensed professionals to perform a mold inspection. A mold inspection can include looking for visible signs of mold, testing air samples for the presence of mold, and looking for areas where mold might become a problem. It's important that you seek out a professional trained in the detection of mold for the mold inspection process, as there are not always visible patches of mold. Mold can grow under floors and cabinets where it is difficult to see, causing costly damage and possible health issues.
If you have an established problem with mold in your home or business, it is time for mold remediation. The steps of mold remediation include repairing the water problem (mold specialists can determine the cause of the leak, but do not do plumbing repairs), isolating the area contaminated by mold, suppressing dust and spores, cleaning the area in a mold remediation dictated fashion, inspecting for any remaining visible signs of mold after mold removal, drying the area, and finally, replacing structures that are unable to be cleaned due to extensive damage or porous surfaces.

Black mold removal is especially hazardous. The need for safety equipment such as a respirator or safety mask rated for black mold means calling in a professional trained in mold removal is a must. Extra protective gear, a greater eye for stopping contamination, and strict adherence to practices that suppress mold and spores is something best handled by professionals. The same processes apply as with general mold removal, finding the water source, cleaning the contaminated area, and removal of non-cleanable or heavily damaged objects, but the risks associated with this toxic black mold are much greater, particularly to the elderly, young children, or those who suffer from allergies and asthma.
Mold Can Lower Property Value
Mold can grow in any environment that is relatively warm and damp. Mold often starts in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry facilities, and can quickly spread throughout a property. Mold grows quickly on drywall, carpet padding, insulation, and wooden framework.
Without proper prevention and maintenance, mold can quickly spread throughout a building’s walls, attics, crawl spaces, and basements. Mold can lower a property’s value by more than 10%, and can easily cause thousands of dollars in damage in a short period of time.
If you are a property owner, it is extremely important that any mold you find in your home or business is addressed soon as possible. The Center for Disease control recommends contacting a provider such as AdvantaClean immediately if you find mold in your home. Continued exposure to airborne mold spores places you, your family, and your pets at serious risk and can drastically lower your home’s value.
We offer a full suite of services that can help prevent mold from growing on your property. By regularly inspecting and cleaning attics, crawl spaces, basements, and air ducts, you can stop mold at its source and keep your building occupants safe from harm.
