As a homeowner, you know how important it is to keep your house not just visually clean but completely healthy and sanitary.

Mold In Your Home: What Does It Mean?

The discovery of mold within the confines of your abode can be a cause for concern. Not only can it ruin the aesthetic appeal of your living space, but it can also pose significant health risks. From respiratory issues to allergic reactions, the implications of mold can be far-reaching. Moreover, different types of mold, such as the notorious black mold, can be particularly hazardous, requiring immediate attention. Recognizing the signs of mold presence and understanding its potential consequences is crucial for maintaining a healthy and safe home environment.

Common Molds Found In Your Home

Colorado Springs residents are, unfortunately, no strangers to the variety of molds that can take root in their homes, given the region’s unique climate and environmental factors. These are some of the most common molds that homeowners face:

      • Cladosporium: A strong mold that can grow at almost any temperature and is found in moisture-heavy areas like bathrooms or basements. Although not as toxic as other types of mold, it does cause asthma attacks. It is commonly found on wood, wallpaper, or acrylic-painted walls.
      • Alternaria: This dark gray mold is a common allergen and is often found on plaster, wallpaper, canvas, tiles, bricks, and iron materials.
      • Penicillium: Most often found on spoiled or rotten food, this mold also grows in moist surfaces like walls, floors, or carpet and is typically blue, green, yellow, or white in color.
      • Stachybotrys: Also known as black mold, this is a toxic mold that is black and slimy. It can cause a host of health issues, including asthma or a suppressed immune system after prolonged exposure. It is often found on particleboard, hay, drywall, cardboard, or wicker.

We had a great experience with Steamatic. From our initial call, through the bid, and the entire day of work, everyone was professional and informative. They took time to explain each step of the process and did a great job documenting their cleaning. Would highly recommend and we’ll certainly use again in the future.

Did a full duct cleaning on a home buold in 2018. Had a little hesitancy going it with a bit higher price than I was hoping for, however, the gentlemen that worked on my home did a phenomenal job. They took their time, were here all day and were sure to be thorough. Additionally. They took extra care, being aware of my son's health complications to be respectful and careful to his breathing equipment. Seeing the before and after pictures, as well as our interactions throughout the day, all I can say is - money well spent. Thank you.

Workers were on time and explained everything. Work area was clean and neat when they left and unlike most works they put items on their shoes to keep my floor clean

The technicians were extremely competent in their jobs. They took great care to ensure that the job was done properly. They kept me informed throughout the day on what they were doing including showing me pictures of my ducts before and after cleaning. I am confident that the work was done correctly.

I am giving this company a 5 star review because we had some issues after they came to clean our air ducts ducts and they handled our concerns in a prompt and professional manner. To be fair, we have an old and complicated house and it was a tricky job. The GM listened to our concerns from the first visit and he and the owner showed up the next day to correct the problem and added on a scoping service free of charge. The service business can be complicated and no one is perfect but in my opinion the sign of a good company is how they work through problems with a customer to come to an amicable resolution. We plan to use them again for our next duct cleaning service and I would recommend them.
