Mold Restoration Company In Denver
Mold occurs in damp areas and is often caused by water damage or flooding. Mold can also be the result of a current water leak or improper water leak clean-up from a previous issue.
Mold can be present in carpet, wall interiors, floorboards, and ceilings, as well as easily spotted locations.
Depending on the extent of the mold, a property can even be declared uninhabitable due to the threat it poses to the health of the occupants.
No homeowner or business owner wants to hear that they have mold. Mold spreads quickly and can cause severe respiratory problems, especially in infants, children, the elderly, and those with health issues.
HRS’s mold damage restoration experts in Denver will determine the source of the mold, remove all traces of the mold, and repair or replace the damaged structures, ensuring the issue that caused the mold is remediated.

Mold Removal Process
With a combined two decades of experience, our mold certified removal technicians come to you to complete a mold inspection as soon as the fungus is discovered.
Our team inspects your space to determine exactly where the mold is growing and how moisture is coming into your property.
The information we gather focuses our efforts on where they are needed most. We begin by drying the moisture that is allowing the mold to thrive, then cleaning and disinfecting all affected surfaces to prevent the mold from growing back.
Once the mold is stopped and all affected surfaces are cleaned, restoration begins. Our licensed contractors work to return your property to its pre-mold condition by repairing anything that was affected — on the interior or exterior of your home.
The mold removal and restoration process is completed as quickly as possible and can take as little as a few days or as long as a few weeks.
Contacting professional, certified mold remediation and restoration services like HRS in Denver, can help you return your space to its pre-damaged condition quickly and as easily as possible.

Some molds are “toxigenic.” This means the mold can produce mycotoxins which are the chemical toxins that naturally occur in fungi.
While sometimes the terms “toxic mold” and “black mold” are used interchangeably, according to the CDC, “Color is not an indication of how dangerous a mold may be. Any mold should be removed and the moisture source that helped in grow should be removed.”
While mycotoxins evolved to help mold colonies defeat each other, it turns out they aren’t great for humans either. Exposure symptoms may vary, so always consult a doctor if you think your health has been affected.

What Causes Mold?
Mold is a naturally occurring fungus whose spores live in the air. A water leak or breach, however, can create an environment that allows mold to not only settle, but thrive and grow.
Mold grows in wet, dark and humid places such as carpet, drywall, insulation and building materials. Left untreated, it will spread and damage the surface it is growing on.
When Should You Do A Mold Inspection?
Any time you discover a leak or water intrusion, it is best to have a mold inspection completed by trained professionals ASAP because of mold’s ability to grow and thrive in even the smallest amounts of moisture.
What Is Mold?
Mold is a naturally occurring fungus that spreads through the air with the help of spores that can be black, white, orange, green, or purple in color. What’s more, mold can live almost anywhere and on any surface where there’s moisture.
Mold is usually harmless in small amounts; however, mold can become more dangerous to the health of those living with it if allowed to thrive in a moist or damp space.
Is Mold Toxic?
Mold is toxic to individuals who are sensitive or allergic to it and can cause health issues such as asthma, psychiatric illness, headaches, muscle pain and other respiratory symptoms.
Those exposed to mold on a regular basis, such as people living in a house or working in a space infested by mold, are more likely to suffer illness as a result of the intensity and duration of exposure.
In short, mold can be toxic to some people in some situations, which is why it is essential to remediate mold as soon as it is discovered.
How Dangerous Is Mold?
Mold can lead to toxic poisoning and severe illness in some individuals who are sensitive to it and have been exposed for a long period, such as in an infested workplace or home.
Mold can be dangerous to some people as it can cause an allergic reaction similar to seasonal allergies.
For other folks, mold can cause significant health concerns including asthma, psychiatric problems, muscle pain, and bloody noses.
Mold Exposure Symptoms
You may first suspect mold exposure when you smell the musty, earthy odor given off by growing spores in damp spaces.
If mold is present, you may experience symptoms like red, itchy eyes, coughing, wheezing, and sinusitis.
Mold exposure symptoms can vary depending on the individual, and the time and intensity of exposure.
Can You Cleanup Mold Yourself?
One of the biggest challenges for most property owners is finding all of the moisture in a space that has suffered a water intrusion, regardless of the size of the water event.
Fully cleaning up mold requires finding the moisture source and stopping it, cleaning and drying the affected area, and disinfecting it to ensure that mold will not return.
Even the smallest amount of moisture that is left untreated can lead to a mold infestation.
Certified mold mitigation technicians make use of technology such as thermal cameras and moisture monitors to ensure that all moisture is discovered and dried properly.

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.

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.
