Mold is everywhere, even in Colorado Springs.

Sometimes, however, mold finds its way into areas that can cause costly damage to your home and health. Mold remediation in Colorado Springs is just as important as it is in more humid climates. Newer home designs in Colorado Springs often implement elevated structural basement floors to circumvent the foundation cracking. But, this design exposes the wood ‘underbelly’ of the home to moisture from humidity in the soil below the home, thus creating the ideal ‘mold Petri dish’.  360MOLD has seen it all when it comes to mold in Colorado Springs and are certified to tackle the fuzziest of mold problems. If you suspect the presence of mold, call us first for a thorough mold inspection and expert mold removal services.

 

Black Mold

Black Mold

We educate our clients to know that ‘black’ is a color not the name of a mold and not all black or dark molds are ‘the’ black mold as it has become popularized. Black mold has developed a fear-based reputation as of late, however, there is a lot of mixed and often inaccurate information.  Most all molds can cause health issues for some people, some of the time.  There are several types of mold that are toxic to humans, inaccurately referred to as “toxic black mold”, or more specifically, Stachybotrys chartarum.  The only way to know for sure is to have the mold inspected and tested by a mold expert.

Signs of Mold

Signs of Mold

There are a number of signs that mold might be present and causing issues in your home or workplace environment. The first is visual observation of a substance that appears like it might be mold. Sometimes the locations are in obvious places like under a sink that has had a leak, on drywall or carpet that has had exposure to water, the ceiling above the shower, on food left in the refrigerator too long. Other observable areas, although less obvious might be in a crawl space, bottom of a cardboard box sitting on the basement floor, behind a dresser or in a closet where there is poor ventilation (especially on exterior walls), attics where the roof has leaked or there is inadequate ventilation.
