You may be wondering whether you should purchase mold test kits or call to have professional mold inspections for any home or buildings you are occupying or tenants are occupying in Northern, VA. The most significant component of a mold inspection is the inspection itself, not the samples.
Samples taken of mold can be misleading and can at times be incorrect. Both false positive and false negative results frequently occur. A well thought out sampling plan and a visual inspection need to be done for an accurate interpretation of any mold inspection in Northern, VA.
The visual part of a mold inspection requires an understanding of building structures, water sources, and other factors that typically are not apparent to a homeowner using a mold test kit. The Northern, VA home or building may have condensation in an attic that is not adequately ventilated, possible issues with drainage around the exterior of the building, or cracks in the foundation. These are things that a professional mold inspection company such as Envirotex will be looking for during an inspection of your Northern, VA home. The source of moisture has to be taken care of first or removing any mold will only be a temporary fix. The moisture source must be fixed, or the mold will come back.
Mold test kits will not provide you the helpful information that you will need to rid your home of mold. A professional mold inspection by an environmental company such as Envirotex will find the source of moisture causing the mold growth, will draw up a plan to remove the mold and any repairs you will need to fix the moisture that is breeding mold growth at your home in Northern, VA.
Envirotex has the proper equipment to do a thorough mold inspection of your property. With the latest technology of thermal imaging and a specialized trained team, Envirotex can quickly detect and identify the sources of moisture at your Northern, VA home that is causing mold growth.
