We Know What’s Important
Mold stinks. It’s unsightly and, if unchecked, can cost thousands of dollars to eradicate and clean up. But that’s not the worst of it.
Mold can threaten your family with serious health risks. We never forget that.
What Are the Mold Risks, Anyway?
The Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization warn of health risks associated with exposure to various mold spores and toxins.
Mold spores can cause respiratory problems in children and people with depressed immune systems. Some molds produce toxins that can cause serious health problems even in healthy adults.
Learn more about the health risks of exposure to mold in the Environmental Protection Agency’s publication: A Brief Guide to Mold, Moisture, and Your Home.

Water Damage = High Risk for Mold
Denver is built in a groove between the alpine front range and the arid plains. As it turns out, this topography creates a weather pattern that dumps all the moisture picked up by the Chinook winds of early spring right on Denver. When you combine this wet, relatively warm monsoon season with the spring thaw and runoff, the result is often water damage and, finally, mold. The problem is that mold is sneaky, mold is sly.
We Find Mold
The good news is that no matter how wet the Denver monsoon gets and no matter how well mold hides, Enviocore can find it. Our mold testing techniques detect mold infestations in attics, crawl spaces, between walls and in any other hidden cracks and crannies. We know how to analyze structures and water damage to determine where mold is most likely to develop and become a problem. This enables us to home in on mold and map out the scope of a potential mold infestation.
We Identify Mold
All molds produce spoors, and mold spoors can cause health problems for children, elderly and people with immune system problems. But some molds produce toxins that can cause serious health risks, even to healthy adults.
Black mold (stachybotrys chartarum) is often referred to as “toxic” black mold. It produces trichothecene mycotoxins.
The trichothecene mycotoxins produced by stachybotrys chartarum black mold are neurotoxic, which means they destroy nerve cells in the brain and nervous system. Neurological damage can result in severe health problems, mental impairment, mood swings and even personality changes. Symptoms of neurological damage can include:
- Diminished concentration
- Slowed reflexes
- Memory loss and memory problems
- Impaired learning ability
- Shortened attention span
- Aggression and other personality changes
When we test your property for mold, we provide a lab report that tells you exactly what the extent of your mold issue is and exactly what kind of mold is present.

FAST, ACCURATE TEST RESULTS. VERY FAST.
For any environmental testing to be meaningful, much less valuable, you need the results to be reliable and fast. If it takes until mold spores become visible over a large area to get positive mold contamination test results, those results aren’t really “news.” They’re “olds.”
