Mold Removal & Remediation Company In Denver
Removal & Recurrence Prevention
Once mold is detected, it’s imperative to deal with it as soon as possible. Mold remediation involves removing and/or disinfecting any components of the building affected by the mold. Permeable surfaces infested with mold are usually removed rather than cleaned, while non-porous surfaces can often be disinfected. Multiple steps are taken to prevent the mold spores from spreading further. The area being worked in is sealed off and the contaminated debris—whether cleaning implements or removed parts of the structure—is sealed in plastic bags. HRS mold remediation specialists wear
protective gear, both to help prevent the disbursement of the spores via clothing and to protect against their toxicity.
Another element to the remediation process is to ensure the issue that resulted in mold growth is fully corrected so it does not recur. This may be fixing a leaking pipe, determining the source of excess humidity in a home, or locating a roof leak. Whatever the issue, HRS’s restoration specialists will get to the source of the problem and ensure it is repaired.

Mold Remediation FAQs
After a water intrusion, many areas of a home are ideal hosts for mold growth. These include hidden areas like behind water-soaked doors, under tiles on a shower wall, and in a carpet that has been exposed to water.
Mold is a fungus that grows in areas that are wet, warm, and dark. It produces spores that float in the air and can affect the health of those who inhale it.
Because mold cannot survive without water, a thorough drying out of a space is essential to ending a mold infestation. No moisture can be allowed to remain, and working with a Denver mold removal specialist ensures that every hidden corner is properly dried and restored.
What Causes Mold?
Moisture causes mold to grow in a home. It becomes more dangerous when it is able to attach to a water source and find warmth and darkness.
Mold colonies form on materials, like wood products, paper, drywall, and carpet that have suffered a water intrusion, and begin to spread. This expansion can happen quickly and can grow as much as one new square inch a day.
Is Mold Dangerous?
A mold infestation can be dangerous to those who are sensitive to inhaling its spores or who are allergic to it.
Those exposed to mold can be affected and feel allergy-like symptoms such as itchy eyes and a cough.
For other individuals, long-term health issues may include asthma, psychological issues, and muscle and joint pain.
The length of the exposure, the size of the mold infestation, and the level of sensitivity are all factors in determining the danger of mold.
How Fast Does Mold Grow?
Mold can begin to form in only 24-hours after a water breach.
Mold colonies can spread as quickly as one square inch per day and in just a week can cover a full square foot of a surface.
It expands as long as it has access to a food source. Food sources for mold include building materials, like wood, paper, and carpet that have become moist after a water intrusion.
Does Mold Spread?
Yes, and it can happen fast. Mold will spread as much as one square inch a day if its moisture source is not properly dried.
After a water intrusion, stopping the source of water is essential to eliminating mold in a home. Mold spreads as long as it can find moisture. Without moisture, it cannot grow.
Why Is Removing Mold Important?
Removing mold is an important step to take because as soon as a mold colony begins to grow, it emits spores that float in the air. These spores can be inhaled by those living and working in a space.
For some individuals, inhaling the spores can lead to illnesses ranging in severity from headaches and coughs to long term asthma and psychological issues.
Professional mold removing also limits the water and mold damage that is caused in areas that are susceptible to mold growth.
How Much Does Mold Remediation Cost?
HRS will work with you and your insurance company to ensure that the costs are balanced with the benefit of removing potentially toxic mold and bringing your home back to its pre-damaged condition.
The cost of mold remediation services in Denver can vary depending on several factors. These include the size of the property affected, the degree of the mold infestation, and the type of mold that has taken hold.
How Long Does Mold Remediation Take?
At HRS, our trained and certified mold remediators in Denver can achieve results in as little as a few days in some cases, and in a few weeks in others.
The size of a property that has suffered a mold infestation, the level of mold growth, the type of mold, and the damage caused can all affect the time that it takes to fully dry and remediate a mold emergency.
In every case, we leave the space mold-free and in its pre-mold condition in as little time and with as little stress as possible.

HRS Restoration Services – Denver
When disaster strikes, HRS’s 24 hour restoration services are here for your emergency cleaning and professional restoration needs. In addition to water extraction and water damage restoration, HRS offers the following emergency restoration services:
Water Extraction & Water Damage Restoration
Discovering water damage in your home or business—whether from a flood, a dishwasher malfunction, or a sewer backup—can feel devastating. And it can be a serious problem if not dealt with properly. In addition to causing damage, water can also spread contaminants that may lead to disease. A quick response to water intrusion is imperative due to the invasive properties of moisture:
Fire Damage & Restoration
A fire can be the most traumatic and devastating experience a home or business owner ever faces. In a best case scenario, it can cause minor smoke damage; in a worst case scenario, it can obliterate an entire structure. HRS will help you navigate these stressful circumstances and bring your property back to a safely inhabitable state.
Trauma clean-up and bio-cleaning is not a subject people give much thought to until they need the service. When dealing with a crime scene at your home or business, or with the aftermath of a fatality, the emotional toll can be overwhelming. HRS professionals can help ease the burden of the situation by eliminating all trace of the death or incident. This includes removing unsafe items and substances such as blood, other bodily fluids, and filth, all of which can contain biological hazards.
Asbestos is commonly found in older buildings, both residential and. It can be found in numerous construction materials, including concrete, asphalt, roof shingles, pipes, siding, wall board, floor tiles, joint compounds, adhesive, and insulation. The US banned the use of asbestos in the manufacturing of most materials in 1978, which is why we assume properties constructed before 1980 could have asbestos present.
Reconstruction & Restoration
Handling a home or commercial property’s disaster situation requires both mitigating the issue and rebuilding the affected areas of the property. Once the emergency has been taken care of—whether it’s water damage, fire damage, mold remediation, trauma clean-up/bio-cleaning, or asbestos abatement—the property will need to be restored. This could include structural repairs, drywall, plumbing, electrical, and/or landscape replacement … just to name a few. As a fully licensed general contractor, we can provide these services to homeowners as well as commercial properties. Our work ranges from basic repairs to complex, multi-faceted projects.
Dealing with a disaster situation at a commercial property type requires an additional skill set. Unlike a residence, commercial buildings have employees and, often, patrons that are affected by an incident such as a water event or smoke damage. HRS will provide the necessary remediation services efficiently and discretely.
