One of the things that will raise a red flag about potential hazards at a home inspection before a sale is the presence of mold. To ensure the integrity of your home value and protect the health of your family, know the best way to remove mold in Reston, VA.
Here are a few reasons why you should consider hiring a certified, licensed professional for mold removal in Reston, VA:
Water damage comes from many sources: roof leaks, basement floods, bathroom drips, clogged drains, and burst pipes. These and other water-drenched events (even a liquid spill on your carpet) can lead to environmental conditions that are a perfect mold breeding ground.
That's why the US Environmental Protection Agency strongly recommends hiring a professional mold remediation company with mold certification to conduct a thorough inspection for mold. If you suspect a mold issue in your home, do not delay.
Mold may be secreted in tiny nooks and crannies such as the underside of your drywall, wallpaper, or wood or vinyl paneling. It also thrives on ceiling tiles, and underneath carpets, pads, and rugs. Other hidden mold spots include areas inside walls near pipes (leaking or condensing pipes), wall surfaces behind furniture, in HVAC ductwork, and roof materials above ceiling tiles (following roof leaks or insufficient insulation).
Dry any wet areas promptly. Facilitate open ventilation with fans, and lower humidity with dehumidifiers. Time exposure to dampness and moisture can make the difference between a blossoming mold colony and a nice, clean carpet. Eliminate situations immediately where water or other liquid leaks may occur with frequency.
Your indoor air quality is affected by a variety of variables. The primary drivers of air quality are moisture in the air or humidity, and ventilation or unrestricted air flow. Optimizing both is a job for qualified professionals. The professionals employed by Envirotex Environmental Services can conduct mold testing and indoor air quality analysis to assess the condition of your environment and determine which specific remedies will best remove obstacles to better air quality. Once these conditions are remediated, mold growth will be prevented if those environmental conditions are monitored and maintained. This is especially important for people with respiratory ailments, allergies, and anyone with a compromised immune system.
Investigating hidden mold problems can be challenging and requires caution when the investigation involves disturbing potential sites of toxic mold growth. For example, removing wallpaper can lead to an enormous release of spores if there is mold growing on the underside of the paper. If you suspect a hidden mold problem, hire a licensed, experienced, certified, mold removal professional.

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!
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.
