Home mold testing for Leesburg, VA does not need to be expensive. We humans are designed with five great senses and if we use them strategically by knowing what we are looking, seeing, smelling and feeling for home mold testing can be conducted around the clock.
We are blessed with a nose. Mold smells with a distinctive odor in the air surrounding the area where it has found a home. If you are unsure of what it smells like, think the smell of wet clothes that have been left in a pile for a couple of days. That is a prime mold home.
This is most common for rental homes, where you might not see the place for months at a time. If you know of any wet spots, a quick walk or hand tap in the area will confirm whether the area is in fact damp therefore likely promoting the growth of mold. If you happen to do this touch test with bare skin, make sure you thoroughly clean yourself posttest as you have likely been directly exposed to mold.
Imagine if we could not see mold! Luckily in nearly all cases, when we see mold on a surface directly its color contrasts against the surface it’s living on. If you see mold forming, you can nip it in the bud right away. If you know of areas that are hidden to the naked eye, take a quick look behind cupboard doors and shelves to see if you can spot any mold.
This is quite simple. When there is rain falling, listen for any heavy droplets. If you can hear any drips from a consistent spot, check out the suspected area for pooling of water. If need be clean up the area and prevent the drip/collection from occurring.
Your senses are perfect for home mold testing in Leesburg, VA. With a little bit of self-awareness to monitor mold using your sight, hearing, smell and touch you can prevent the need for extensive mold testing equipment.

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!)
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!
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++
