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.

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.
Great customer service. Reviewed quite a few and found Daniel Freeman, Pres/CEO of Envirotex to be the most knowledgeable and professional of all. Also the most experienced! We would highly recommend this company. (He was very tolerant of all my questions about the inspection and how the treatment would be handled!)
