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 truly came to our rescue. With the discovery of asbestos during our current renovation project, we were faced with the possibility of a considerable delay. Envirotex's prompt response, competitive pricing and flexibility to work off hours prevented any schedule slippage.
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.

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!)
