The experts at Envirotex suggest mold testing and remediation in Upperville, VA if a homeowner notices mold around a plumbing leak or in the attic under a roof leak. Unfortunately, mold in these situations can easily spread throughout a house because mold spores travel easily through the air.
Here are a few reasons why you should consider hiring a certified, licensed professional for mold remediation in Upperville, VA:
In fact, mold is able to spread itself in as short a time as 48 to 72 hours. Within this timeframe, allergens and irritants extend throughout a house. The results can be allergic reactions, headaches, nasal stuffiness, respiratory problems and occurrences of asthma.
It helps to get an idea why mold is such a health hazard. The old joke was that it’s just an early form of penicillin. Sadly, it’s not so. Mold is a natural material, but it can cause major problems for pets and people.
Mold spores are everywhere. Microscopic in size, they are outdoors and indoors. That means all signs of them can’t be removed during a mold remediation in Upperville, VA. The spores float effortlessly through the air, letting them get into a home through open windows and doors, on clothing, on a pet, even through air conditioning and heating systems.
If the humidity in a home is higher than usual, it can encourage the growth of mold. That means it is always best to keep humidity levels at 45% or below.
Mold is found around moisture, which helps the spores stay alive. Colonies of mold spores grow fast around all types of moisture, like leaks. Even if a homeowner can’t see any mold, he can often detect its presence if there is a musty odor in an area of the house.

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.

The attic looks great. Again, thank you for your rapid response, great job and going the extra mile.
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!
