No matter where you live in Northern Virginia, chances are great you have had to deal with black mold yourself or you know someone who has. Black mold is a thin, fungal growth that appears black in color and including the species Stacybortys Charatrum. This particular type of black mold is usually found in areas with high humidity and poor ventilation - areas such as the attic and basement of your Herndon, VA home.
Here are a few reasons why you should consider hiring a certified, licensed professional for mold removal in Herdon, VA:
Black mold spores are found naturally in the air and settle on surfaces to grow and thrive. Black mold can grow on nearly any type of surface, including books, bags, mattresses, walls, ceilings and so on. The toxic nature of black mold causes considerable illness in otherwise healthy individuals, but can prove lethal to those who suffer from upper respiratory illnesses or who have already compromised immune systems.
Black mold spores are easily inhaled, which can quickly lead to nose bleeds and even internal bleeding in the lungs. Those individuals with long term exposure to black mold can develop sinus problems, headaches, and asthma-like symptoms. For these reasons, black mold removal, mold remediation, and mold abatement is high on the list of indoor air pollution control measures.
Black mold is toxic and should be removed from your home as quickly as possible. In most circumstances, contacting a professional mold removal or mold remediation company is the best solution to deal with the mold in your home. However, if you find black mold on only one or two objects, it is important you remove the objects as quickly as possible to protect your health.For more information on black mold, mold remediation or mold removal in Northern Virginia contact the mold removal experts at Envirotex today.

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.

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++
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!
