There are thousands of types of mold that exist in every part of the world. Most molds are relatively harmless at normal levels, but may cause an allergic reaction in higher concentrations. Others can cause internal bleeding, serious respiratory illnesses and brain damage. These types of mold are classified as toxigenic and attack bodily functions.

More serious toxigenic molds also attack the immune, central nervous, and cardiopulmonary systems. However, health affects related to mold exposure vary because every person reacts differently to the species involved, the byproducts generated by mold, the amount and duration of exposure, and the susceptibility of the individual.

To be on the safe side, it is best to consider mold as dangerous and deal with the problem immediately.

Call DCR Colorado if you have a mold outbreaks. Our team will identify the source of the moisture and correct it before the remediation process begins. A thorough analysis will reveal the source of the moisture, type of mold and solutions that will best solve the problem.



  • Try not to disturb mold colonies after you have located them.
  • Air motion will send millions of viable spores into the air, cross-contaminating the rest of your home or business.
  • When remodeling, if you open up ceilings or walls and find mold, stop until the hazard can be analyzed. Tearing out moldy building materials improperly can release the mold spores in the air and lead to mold related illnesses.
  • Trying to kill mold with bleach or other fungicides does not remove the toxins from the air. A dead spore will continue to give off toxins until it is removed.
  • Mold will propagate as long as there is moisture and a food source. Mold spores can stay dormant for years until proper growing conditions appear or return.

DCR Colorado uses partner firms certified through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration (IICRC) and that are fully licensed and insured.



Asbestos has been identified as a cancer-causing material (carcinogen) and the cause of the lung-scarring disease, asbestosis. Cancers attributed to asbestos exposure include lung cancer, mesothelioma (an always-fatal cancer of the lining of the chest or abdominal cavity) and several digestive system cancers. Symptoms of these diseases generally do not appear for approximately 10-40 years.

Commercial uses of asbestos have been banned in the United States, however buildings built between the early 1900’s and 1990 have a high likelihood to have asbestos in one or more of the building materials. Asbestos containing building materials most commonly found in structures typically consist of wallboard, joint taping compound, skim coats and textures, acoustic or "popcorn" ceilings, insulation, resilient floor coverings, thermal system insulation, fireproofing and some types cementuous products such as pipes and shingles or siding. Many other materials may be suspected.

During work activities, exposure to airborne asbestos fibers may occur if the proper steps are not taken prior to the commencement of the activities. DCR Colorado offers asbestos consulting services including inspections, management planning, project design and monitoring.
