In 2011 it was discovered by the National Toxicology Program that formaldehyde was toxic and known to be a human carcinogen. Until this time formaldehyde had been used in just about everything we use. Since it is a natural byproduct of CH2O it can still be found in homes all across Northern Virginia. Over time it turns into a gas and is released in many Northern Virginia homes. It is known to have many negative long-term effects including various health hazards such as increased risk of cancer and other diseases. This is why formaldehyde removal has become a necessity for homeowners all across Northern Virginia.
Now that we know the true damage that can be dealt by formaldehyde we are starting to look for better ways to do formaldehyde removal inside of Northern Virginia homes. It can be difficult to completely remove formaldehyde so instead we will test for the levels and then create a plan for you to help reduce levels initially and keep them low in a more long-term state. The less formaldehyde that you come in contact the safer you will be, so it is a good idea to have a formaldehyde removal performed sooner rather than later. Once the first test is complete you’re going to get an idea of how bad the issue is in your home and what you should do about it. A good professional formaldehyde removal in Northern Virginia is going to be a great place to start in taking good care of yourself and your family.
When it comes to formaldehyde removal always remember that this is a nonstop problem. Just because we did not know about it before 2011 does not mean that it was still bad for us. All you can do is take care of your Northern Virginia home from here on out through proper care and timely professional formaldehyde removal. If you are still not sure how this process works, feel free to give our Northern Virginia team a call and we will help you out.

Envirotex helped alleviate the stress associated with the flooding of our basement. Although the insurance adjuster was quick to get a company in there to rip out the carpeting and drag it out into our driveway (where it remained for several days), neither the adjuster nor the carrier was concern about the ensuing mold growth that we were seeing on the drywall and ceiling tiles. If not for the professional survey, analysis and report that you furnished detailing the extent of the mold contamination, the cause thereof and the work that was required to be performed, I am certain that we would still be fighting with the insurance company. Thank you, we are very glad that we had Envirotex in our corner!
The attic looks great. Again, thank you for your rapid response, great job and going the extra mile.
The job was to remove all the old rock-wool insulation and 60-years of dust, bird droppings, and dirt from the attic so that new fiber glass insulation could be installed. Dan's team of workers did a super job in cleaning the attic of all this stuff. I could find nothing remaining between the joist or in corners of the attic. It was so clean that you could have food served on the floor in the attic. They were on-time, completed the work as scheduled, and the work team was professional, organized, and experienced. Highly recommend Envirotex.
