Home mold testing in Fairfax, VA is a job you should be doing actively. Some things in life are better never coming across; mold certainly fits into this category. Below we will take a look at situations that if uncared for can foster a perfect little home for mold to embed and expand.
If you are in the bathroom and notice condensation is forming on the mirrors and glass faster and remaining longer, there is likely an issue with your ventilation. Make sure to give your ventilation systems frequent cleans; they too can be spots where mold makes a tidy home to ensure your ventilation is 100% in work order.
Hopefully you notice pooling water inside right away. Small leaks in the kitchen cupboard, against house foundations and in the corner of outdoor decking are the most common areas to find pooling of water. When it is hot, mold spores love growing in these areas. Clean up the pooling and preventing mold from starting is essential and prevents long-term damage.
Ventilation is designed to remove moisture from the air and push it outside. For any number of reasons, this may not happen. Make sure that the ventilation in the bathroom, laundry and kitchen are all taking heat and moisture away from the source outside. If there are any holes in the ventilation, you are simply allowing the mold spores to spread to other areas of the house.
Condensation on the shower is not always evaporated immediately from the showers surface. Getting a purpose made shower scraper which is used after each shower is a way to make sure condensation is completely removed and leaves the shower cleaner for longer.

What can I say... Thank you! Your team arrived on time, treated my home with respect, finished the job on time and did what you said they would do. A++
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.

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!
