Mold growth is all about moisture, so it stands to reason if you live in the Washington, D.C.-Northern Virginia area, which is area prone to high humidity, then the chances of your home developing a mold problem are much higher. Anything over a 55% RH level promotes mold and fungi growth. Often, heating and cooling systems will mask that there is a humidity problem, and it's not until you test the room with a humidity sensor or plug in a dehumidifier that the condition is obvious.
When you see actual spores of mold growing, perhaps in a small area of the bathroom or shower, take immediate action before it spreads any further. You'll need to identify the cause of the problem and check to see if it has spread to any other areas. Thoroughly clean and disinfect the area and dry completely. Any spores left behind will continue to grow once the area is exposed to any moisture.

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