Mold growth in Fairfax, VA is a big problem. It’s also insidious, because in many cases, by the time you actually see evidence of mold in your home, the colony or colonies are already quite well entrenched and have spread widely throughout your home.
While it’s true that some species of mold aren’t harmful to human health, many are, and a few can even be fatal. Even worse, mold growth in your Fairfax, VA home can be tricky to counteract, and difficult to remove completely.
If it were a simple matter of eliminating the mold itself, that would be one thing, and the process would be significantly easier, but if that’s all you do, then you’re guaranteed to see further mold growth in your Fairfax, VA home, because the root causes that allowed the colonies to establish themselves, to begin with, are still present in your home.
What are those conditions, exactly?
It’s an excellent question, and here, there’s an easy answer. Mold likes two things, dark places and damp places. That’s the problem. Mold colonies tend to establish themselves initially in those forgotten corners of your house that you either seldom go, or can’t get to directly:
Of course, mold isn’t picky. If your home has suffered storm damage and you’ve got areas of persistent dampness in your attic due to roof damage, or if a pipe is leaking behind a wall, mold will happily take up residence in those areas too, and again, by the time it spreads , then odds are excellent that the problem has become quite advanced.
We’ve got a solution for that! As the area’s top-rated environmental remediation company, we’re constantly upgrading both our skill set and our technology. Recently we’ve added thermal imaging to our toolset used to detect for the presence of mold in your home.
Our current process is significantly faster and more accurate than the process we’ve used in days gone by.
We focus on looking for evidence of moisture buildup behind your walls, inside your ducts and in all those places you can’t see.
Thermal imaging allows us to see more deeply into the bones of your home to find the places where mold colonies can potentially thrive. This not only tells us where to direct our search but allows us to create a more comprehensive remediation plan that addresses all the root causes in a single go.
That not only solves your immediate problem but helps to ensure that it won’t return after we complete our work.
The bottom line is, if you even think you might have a mold problem, there’s just one number to call. Give us a call today. We’ll be there when you need us.

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.
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.
