Concerned your Home Has Mold?

Concerned your Home Has Mold?

Denver’s record amounts of rainfall and flooding this summer has caused increased conditions for mold growth. Carole Walker, executive director of the Rocky Mountain Insurance Information Association, stated that the majority of mold claims in Colorado result from water damage.However, water damage is not the only cause of mold growth in homes. Walker claimed that construction defects, maintenance issues and Colorado’s expansive soils are also to blame for mold growth. So, how is one to know if your home is contaminated?

Medical Symptoms

Perhaps you struggle with daily migraines, a chronic cold or flu like symptoms. The Environmental Protection Agency identifies health risks associated with mold ranging from asthma, sore eyes, sore throat, congestion and itchy skin. If you experience these symptoms and they decrease when you leave the house, have a professional test for mold.

In-House Symptoms

Water Damage

Leaky pipes, leaky roof or a history of moisture problems in the home are key factors contributing to mold growth. Cracks or splits in the ceiling are a sign of a leaky roof. Water stains on the wall will often appear yellowish and if mold is present, will be darker in color. Bulging, soggy or bubbling walls and peeling paint are also signs of interior water intrusion.

Rust

Rust inside the home is a sign of moisture. If you see rust on nails or interior pipes, this could be an indication of condensation, a water leak, or high humidity, all of which are conditions for mold growth.

  • “My home was damaged by 2 hail storms and water began leaking down the walls and settling on the floor. I tried 5 different water mitigation companies and couldn’t even get a call back. My insurance company recommended Rainbow Int. and they had 2 guys out to check out the situation within 2 hours of my initial call. My insurance company recommended Rainbow so they are handing all of the billing directly.”

  • “We have a ton of visitors scheduled this summer so I let Dave, the site manager, know that they only had a week to get everything done. The crew was first rate and the house is completely dry and ready for construction to begin on time. Instead of just tidying up my home with a shop vac, as many contractors will do, they sent out a professional cleaning team to ensure that everything is perfect.”

  • “Our vacation home in Conifer suffered major water damage when a pipe fitting failed and water spilled onto the main floor for 5 days before my neighbor noticed it. Hard wood floors ruined on main floor, downstairs carpet and drywall destroyed. Rainbow Int. was very quick to respond and did an outstanding job cleaning up the mess. They were prompt, they were thorough, and they kept me in the loop the whole way, even though I was 1000 miles away in California. If you have water damage and you want it cleaned up quickly, I highly recommend Rainbow Int.”
