With the cold winds and snow of winter in Vienna, VA comes the additional possibility of mold growth throughout your home. Just as you take steps in the summer to avoid mold growth and the eventual need for mold remediation, you should take steps in the winter months as well. Use these mold prevention tips to protect your home and belongings and rest easy this winter.
Whenever there are mild, wet winters and spring in the Vienna, VA area and suburbs, from Falls Church, VA to Vienna, VA and in between may be at increased risk of mold. If your home has become damp, it is providing a welcoming home for mold, and if you suffer from mold allergies, your mold allergy symptoms may have become worse in recent weeks.
To reduce mold in your Vienna, VA home, reduce humidity and increase light. Most molds do not thrive in bright light. When tackling your allergies, try to find out whether the mold spores are coming from outside or from inside your home. If the mold is coming from outside your home then keeping the windows shut during the most active periods of mold makes sense, however, if you have mold inside your home, then an increase in ventilation is likely to reduce it. Mold likes to be cozy and snug and thrives best in still air in dark places.
If these basic steps do not reduce your allergies inside your home or if you have seen or smelled mold in your home, you might need to call in Envirotex Environmental Services. We are mold identification and remediation experts and can help you discover the source of your mold and the solutions for getting rid of it.

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.
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!
