Hazardous materials come in different forms, but all are hazardous to your well being. While some hazardous materials are more dangerous than others, each has its own dangers and should only be managed by someone with the proper experience and licenses.


Mold can cause severe respiratory problems if not entirely removed. If you have mold stains in your home or have a musty smell, call a hazardous materials removal company. Once you see mold stains, it means you have extensive mold growth. Never attempt to remove the mold, as it all must be removed, and the area sprayed with special agents to ensure it will not return.


Asbestos is one of the more hazardous materials that you will encounter in your home. If your house has tested positive for asbestos, never try to remove it yourself. Asbestos causes cancer and other severe illnesses. Always call a hazardous materials removal company for the removal of this dangerous mineral fiber that can be found in old insulation, tiles and other building materials.

Lead Paint

Lead paint is not very dangerous to adults, but it can cause life-threatening illnesses to young children, the elderly, or pregnant women. If your property has lead paint, it needs to be removed, especially if you have children.


Rats and other small rodents can squeeze through cracks and enter your home. Rodents carry diseases, and their urine and feces can be traced throughout your home and make you will. If you have rodents, always call a professional, as all rodents will need to be removed, and the area will need to be cleaned of all rodent droppings.
Hazardous materials should always be removed and disposed of by a certified and licensed hazardous materials company such as Colorado Hazardous Environmental. If your property has any of the above, give us a call as soon as possible.
