Envirotex is an reputable, licensed environmental services company performing professional mold inspection in Washington, D.C. We offer:
As air moves through your ductwork dust accumulates on the inner walls and within the passages which lead to and from the rooms as supply vents or air returns. Dust is generally concentrations of fibers, particulate, and organic materials (human skin, pet dander, outdoor particulate, etc.).
In some cases, where high relative humidity or condensation forms, HVAC systems can become a problem by providing environmental scenarios conducive to mold growth in your Washington, D.C. home.
Dust accumulations become the substrate for mold growth virtually inside of the HVAC air handler and housing assembly. This may include the fan blades, fan housing, cooling coils, housing walls, and especially the condensate trap which collects water and can stagnate within the housing.
Also, mold present in your Washington, D.C. basement, especially near your HVAC air handler, may draw in mold spores and distribute them into the system and ultimately throughout your household. In this circumstance, your basement is the source for mold spores, and your HVAC system is the distributor of mold spores.
Therefore, it is important to keep your ductwork clean and replace your air filters often with efficient filter media that removes many of these dust particles.
A Moisture / Mold inspection helps to discover if your HVAC in the house you live in or one you may purchase has high dust accumulations potential for mold problems.
Well ventilated attic spaces in your Washington, D.C. home are critical. Without proper venting (air movement and exchange) many bad things can occur, especially involving mold growth on wooden structures such as roof sheathing or truss members.
The following are some of the reasons why mold may begin to grow in an attic;
These are important items to look for in a moisture / mold inspection involving an attic. We look for these potential problems especially to prevent mold prone environments and educate you on the best approach to prevention as well.

I wanted to thank you again for assisting us in the recent meth case in Strasburg.

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!
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!)
