Clean-Up of Former Marijuana Grow Operation
An unexpected outcome from the legalization of marijuana in Colorado is the damage done to properties from people growing marijuana. Single-family homes, condominiums, apartments, and warehouses are often used
for both legal and illegal farming of marijuana. These properties are often vandalized and altered to become residential greenhouses resulting in excess water usage and high humidity (causing mold and water damage), as well as structural and electrical changes.
Problems seen in properties that have been altered for marijuana growing include:
- Mold and Mildew Growth
- Water Damage
- Residual Pesticide Contamination
- Residual Fertilizer Contamination
- Structural Damage

These guys are awesome.
These guys are awesome. Immediate and more than thorough response to a larger problem than anticipated. Highly recommend!!
Would recommend to anyone!
After opening my crawl space hatch and noticing it was filling up with water I became very concerned. Talked to a plumber and learned my dishwasher supply line had been leaking for some time. Called Water Extraction Experts to assess and clean up the damage. Unfortunately the water damage made its way through most of my kitchen and laundry room. The team quickly assessed the damage and did as minimal tear out as they could to dry and prevent any rot within the floor and walls. Very professional and knew exactly how to handle the situation. They worked directly with the insurance company, one less headache I had to worry about, and everything went smooth. Follow up visits were done to verify everything was dried out and no mold had started to grow. Would recommend to anyone
Doug and his staff are incredible!!
Doug and his staff are incredible!! They arrived immediately after I reported a water leak in my basement. Mold had spread throughout and there as sitting water. They brought in their state of the art equipment, sealed off my basement to keep the rest of the home safe, and started mitigating the issue right away. They followed up to ensure everything was taken care of and safe. They communicated well and are very professional and kind. I highly recommend them to anyone with a water problem!!!!
This is one of those genuine five star companies.
I have to give Matt and the folks at Water Extraction Experts really high marks. This is one of those genuine five star companies. They were very clear about what they would do, when they would do it, and how much it would cost. They showed up on time, were a model of efficiency, and held their schedule throughout the mitigation and reconstruction. On top of all this, Matt's experience with insurance companies really made my life so much easier in that department. If you need their services, things are not going well, but you won't find a better partner in the recovery process.
Doug and his crew were Very Professional! We had a hot water heater issue and Doug came out after hours in the snow and had a crew here within 30 minutes. The crew was friendly and talked us through everything. Put in fans and the Next morning had the pad removed and kept the fans going till it was dry. Checked in daily for moisture and mold.
