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.

Good morning, I just wanted to send a quick "THANK YOU" to you all for a prompt response to my call at the end of last week. My wife told me that the crew members were very professional and explained the process to her. Thanks to Dan for responding during his meeting and working with me. I would also like to thank Sara for jumping on the proposal ASAP as well.
The attic looks great. Again, thank you for your rapid response, great job and going the extra mile.
Envirotex truly came to our rescue. With the discovery of asbestos during our current renovation project, we were faced with the possibility of a considerable delay. Envirotex's prompt response, competitive pricing and flexibility to work off hours prevented any schedule slippage.
