General Info and helpful links
- Asbestos is the name given to a number of naturally occurring minerals that have been mined for their useful properties such as thermal insulation, chemical and thermal stability, and high tensile strength.
- Asbestos is made up of microscopic bundles of fibers that may become airborne when disturbed. If these fibers get into the air, they can be inhaled into the lungs where they may cause significant health problems. Researchers still have not determined a "safe level" of exposure but we do know that the higher the concentration of fibers and the longer the exposure, the greater the risk of contracting an asbestos-related disease.
- Asbestos-containing materials (ACM) in good condition should not pose a hazard to building occupants. If these materials can be maintained in good condition, it is recommended that they be left alone and periodic surveillance performed to monitor their condition. It is only when ACM is disturbed or the materials become damaged that it becomes a hazard. When the materials become damaged, the fibers separate and may then become airborne. Renovation and demolitions: Buildings of any age may contain ACM; even those newly built may have ACM.
- If the structures/components to be disturbed exceed the trigger levels, they must be inspected for asbestos by a Colorado-certified asbestos building inspector
- Under many circumstances, a Colorado-certified General Abatement Contractor (GAC) must remove ACM that is regulated or may become regulated before it is disturbed by renovation or demolition activities.

- Lead is a type of metal that is found naturally in the earth. It is toxic to humans, and can get into our bodies when we breathe or swallow something that has lead in it or on it. Young children below the age of three are at the greatest risk because their brains are still growing.
- Homes built before 1978 with chipping, peeling, or flaking paint, or imported toys with lead-based paint

There are no federal, state or local regulatory limits for mold in the home or work environment. Because of this, air sampling may or may not prove useful. Sample results can vary widely based on several variables. Be sure to discuss with your consultant what you expect to determine from any sampling activity. If you suspect you have a mold problem, look for a source of moisture:
Microbes can be found anywhere. They need a source of moisture and a source of food to grow and multiply.
Before successful remediation can take place, the source of moisture must be eliminated or the problem can recur.
If you have visible mold, clean it up:
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency offers remediation tips.
Some materials can’t be cleaned and may need to be discarded. EPA mold page: https://www.epa.gov/mold
