Mold can grow on almost any surface throughout your Sterling, VA home - including your carpets. Indoor mold not only leads to an unpleasant, musty smell but can also contribute to respiratory problems and allergic reactions. You can often tell that mold is present in your carpets when you recognize a musty odor or a speckled patch or shape. To prevent mold growth in your carpet at your Sterling, VA residence never install carpet in a high-humidity area, such as a bathroom, and, if necessary, use humidifiers keep your home at a 30 to 60 percent humidity level.
Carpet's natural tendency to soak up moisture and dirt leads to a great challenge when ridding carpet of mold. Oftentimes homeowners must remove carpet entirely to get rid of mold, or if it is caught early enough, can sometimes give the carpet a thorough cleaning instead of removing it entirely. You should consult a professional on the extent of mold growth before acting. Be advised that mold grows in the spaces of porous materials and can keep growing back, making it difficult - or impossible - to remove.
If the carpet's mold growth in your Sterling, VA house is minor enough that it can be taken care of through a thorough cleaning, try the following methods. Always be sure to wear protective eyewear and gloves when dealing with minor carpet mold.
Whichever method you choose, always dry the area completely after cleaning, or the mold will just grow back. Most importantly, contact a professional to make sure your Sterling, VA carpet's mold growth isn't beyond repair and doesn't pose a health threat to your family. Call Envirotex Environmental, LLC., which has provided thousands of thorough mold and asbestos inspections and solutions throughout the Sterling, VA and the NOVA area, for an inspection.

Listen to Our Clients
I used Envirotex at one of my largest client properties, and was thoroughly pleased with their performance. Their service was prompt, and their analysis comprehensive. Follow up and responsiveness were also great. The president of the company personally addressed our questions. I would not hesitate to use Envirotex again.
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!
Good morning, I just wanted to send a quick "THANK YOU" to you all for a prompt response to my call at the end of last week. My wife told me that the crew members were very professional and explained the process to her. Thanks to Dan for responding during his meeting and working with me. I would also like to thank Sara for jumping on the proposal ASAP as well.
