Mold is a common health risk in many homes and businesses in the Colorado Springs area. AmPro Home Inspections offers mold inspection in addition to our other services to help homeowners and buyers deal with this very real issue. Poor ventilation, leaky plumbing or roofs, and other conditions can cause mold to grow rapidly. This puts family members and occupants at risk.

If you know or even suspect that mold could be present in your home or with a home are thinking of purchasing, then you should bring in an expert.

Each day you wait to have mold tested is another day you or someone around you are at risk. In fact, the Center for Disease Control recommends contacting a provider immediately if you find mold.

Common Mold Inspection FAQs

What are the different types of mold?

There are a handful of common types of mold, with each requiring a specific type of remediation or removal. Alternaria, cladosporium, stachybotrys, penicillium, ulocadium, acreminium, and aspergillus are common ones to research.

Which types of mold are the most dangerous?

Stachybotrys, aspergillus, and acremonium are the most dangerous and should be handled immediately.

What are the most common causes of mold?

Mold grows in damp environments, so it’s no surprise that much of the mold we see is from past or current leaks under sinks or in basements. If there is a history of leaks, moisture can get behind walls and cause more damage.

Does a mold inspection include remediation, removal or treatment?

A mold inspection is the process of assessing, testing and analyzing lab results to determine the type of mold and the severity.

Mold remediation and removal is a separate process that can range from a couple hundred dollars into the thousands, depending on the severity and where the mold exists.
