Here is some information about mold from our website:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or air conditioning and heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture
  • Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water 
  • Mold colonies may produce allergens and irritants
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas

All of them were incredibly knowledgeable and you can tell that they had been at this for some time.

Our Golden, Wheat Ridge and Evergreen teams have been restoring storm damage in Jefferson County for over forty years! Evergreen residents can rest easy knowing that our technicians are on standby to respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.

Here are some tips from the Insurance Information Institute for protecting your home from storm damage:

 Exterior Inspection and Repair

Water can be prevented from entering a structure’s exterior through routine inspection and maintenance and making repairs as needed.

  • Caulk and seal windows
  • Inspect the roof for missing and aging shingles
  • Check rain gutters and drainage systems and remove any debris
  • Check downspouts and clear any clogs and make sure they are draining away from the structure
  • Check sprinkler systems and make sure the sprinklers are not spraying water onto the structure and that water is not pooling around the structure’s foundation
  • Make sure water drains away from the building.Water is invasive and will quickly find its way into a structure when water is allowed to pool around the foundation. After a storm, or when the ground is already saturated by rainwater, the water may enter the foundation wall through cracks.

Our Golden, Wheat Ridge, and Evergreen team has been restoring fire damage for over forty years in Golden. Owning and knowing how to operate a home fire extinguisher can save lives. Here are some tips from the National Fire Protection Association for selecting and using a fire extinguisher:  

  • For the home, choose a multi-purpose extinguisher (which can be used on all types of home fires) that is large enough to put out a small fire but not so heavy as to be difficult to handle
  • Select a fire extinguisher that carries the label of an independent testing laboratory
  • Read the instructions that come with the fire extinguisher and become familiar with its parts and operation before a fire breaks out. Local fire departments or fire equipment distributors often offer hands-on fire extinguisher trainings.
  • Install fire extinguishers close to an exit and keep your back to a clear exit when you use the device so you can make an easy escape if the fire cannot be controlled. If the room fills with smoke, leave immediately.
  • Know when to go. Fire extinguishers are one element of a fire response plan, but the primary element is safe escape. Every household should have a home fire escape plan and working smoke alarms.

Happy Mold Remediation Customers in Wheat Ridge?

A happy customer is giving the thumbs-up sign. We mitigate and remediate mold damage in Jefferson County.
