Mold testing has always been a tough and involved procedure in Washington, DC. In any given case there could be many different types of mold that are in the area and mold is also very hard to track down. Generally, if there is a little bit of mold on your wall, then the chances are good that there is even more hidden from you inside of the wall. Because of the rapid growth of mold in Washington, DC, it has always been tricky to pinpoint exactly how bad any given case may be.
Envirotex is a certified mold testing and removal contractor. We offer:
However, we now have access to a new technology which is thermal imaging. With thermal imaging mold testing in Washington, DC is easier than ever before. We can now use the thermal imaging technology to discover just how bad any given situation might be instantly.
Thermal imaging allows us to rapidly detect sources of moisture that would support the growth of mold. Using this knowledge, we can develop an exact idea of where the mold is and discover conditions that will promote further mold colonization. This allows us to better protect your home in the future as we know exactly where mold is likely to grow. This is a Washington, DC mold testing technique that goes above and beyond even just discovering the existing mold.
The way that the thermal imaging camera works is via an infrared camera diagnostic system. This allows our crew at Envirotex to instantly detect any source of energy deficiencies or destructive water damage. This also includes all existing structural issues which could contribute to the mold problem. Together, the information allows us to make an informed decision during the mold testing which can help us save you dollars on your repairs and make your home a much safer place to live in.
The camera does a lot of the work for us in Washington, DC such as giving us a sample of the building in a diagnostic test as well as identifying mold and other problems. Since it is thermal imaging technology, it can also detect any HVAC or plumbing problems which could be leading towards mold growth. Often the cause for mold in the first place is due to a broken pipe or HVAC conduit that is not working as it should be and therefore causing areas that promote rapid mold growth. Once we see exactly where these areas are in your Washington, DC home, our thorough mold testing team will be able to the plan an effective strategy for combating them.
Even though the thermal imaging camera allows us to perform mold testings which are comprehensive and nondestructive all in seconds of the time it previously took, it is still important to run some sample analyses afterwards. What the thermal imaging camera does for us is shows us exactly where the problem is initially. After this is done, we will take samples of the mold in your Washington, DC home and have it tested at our certified lab. This will give us a clear idea of what exactly the mold compounds in your home are made up of. There are hundreds of different types of mold and each of them should be dealt with in slightly different ways. Depending on which type of mold is growing in your home, it may adjust our mold remediation plan.
This part of our mold testing is extremely important as it will set the tone for the rest of your mold removal in Washington, DC. Thankfully due to the thermal imaging cameras, we can now quickly get a feel of the moisture levels in your home as well as which sections are higher than normal. Instead of having to tear all of your cabinets up, we can instead do a quick thermal review of your entire Washington, DC property and perform our thorough mold testing in a sliver of the time it used to take.

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