The Washington, D.C.-Herndon, VA area is rich in history, with beautiful historic homes dotting its landscape. Of course, a great number of these homes were built years before codes required ventilation fans or windows in bathrooms, or before the reality of what mold can do to a home was known. Nowadays, there are frequent news programs featuring homes with rampant mold, not all of which were destroyed through a natural disaster such as flooding. Mold can grow even in dry areas of the country, so long as there is moisture inside the home and mold spores in the air.
While it is impossible to eliminate all spores from the outside air, it is possible to keep them from growing into a troublesome problem when they make their way indoors into your Herndon, VA home. The following are a few simple household improvements that homeowners can make to ensure that mold does not develop because of excess moisture in the air. Regardless of how old or new a home is, a few economical changes can mean the difference between being mold-free, and having an expensive and time-consuming cleanup project on your hands.
With a few simple home improvements and preventative measures, homeowners can ensure that the inside and outside of their home remains free of troublesome mold. Once mold has infiltrated wall and flooring surfaces, it is harder to kill and remove than it would have been to check for proper ventilation and drainage.

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!
Thanks for your help, Daniel. Your intervention was much needed and appreciated. I will let Brock approve these as he sees fit, as you guys hammered out the agreement and scope. But I did not want the opportunity to go by and not show my appreciation. You always take care of us and you are great at rolling with the punches. Carry on, Christian soldier!
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.
