Mold in Colorado

There is mold in Colorado. Colorado actually has multiple geographic types but much of it is considered high mountain plain. While this is generally a drier climate compared to some, we have a number of factors contributing to the fact that there is plenty of mold in Colorado.

To name some of them, Colorado and it's major cities including Denver and Colorado Springs, have rigorous climate changes and sometimes extreme temperature shifts between both hot and cold. This can lead to swelling and shrinking of foundations and building materials, which can cause them to lose seal integrity and exposed water pipes that freeze. We have large areas of bentonite clay under our buildings which has the capability to expand dramatically and forcibly when wet with seasonal or underground water leading to cracks in foundation walls and floors. Newer home designs often implement elevated structural basement floors to circumvent the foundation cracking. But, this exchange exposes the wood ‘underbelly’ of the home to moisture from humidity in the soil below the home, thus creating the ideal ‘mold Petri dish’. Finally, as in the case of most modern cities, we have roofs and plumbing that occasionally leak.

360MOLD proudly serves Denver and Colorado Springs with mold inspections to give your families, or employees assurance that they are living and working in a safe environment.  Mold in Colorado can cause just as much damage to property and health as mold in more humid climates and a property inspection is always advised when moving to a new location.  We have the proper certifications and technology to locate, identify and remediate mold in your Colorado home or office.
