Mold in Colorado’s dry climate?
Mold can be found just about anywhere. Where we find even minimal moisture damage, we often find mold growth. Household strains like aspergillus, cladosporium and stachybotrus (or black mold), can pose a serious threat not only to your property value but especially your health. Unfortunately, if you are able to observe mold on outward surfaces in your home, there may be larger colonies growing undetected behind walls, under flooring and throughout your heating & A/C systems. When colonies are disturbed, countless mold spores (or mycotoxins) are released into your home and inhaled. Exposure to some mold spores can cause symptoms ranging from mild allergy symptoms to serious neurological damage. It is not advisable to attempt mold removal yourself. Effective mold remediation requires regulated and specialized procedures for site containment and safe eradication.
