Contaminants lurk in the corners of our lives. Anything organic, such as wood or cotton, supports mold and mildew growth, but mildew can also grow on synthetic materials. Believe it or not, the most fertile mildew breeding grounds are building materials containing paper: drywall, paper-backed insulation, and wall coverings, including paint.
Mold forms when water pools on or soaks through any natural material. A mold inspection is a visual evaluation, which can include lab testing. The inspection reveals the presence of mold, how it is nourished, and reputable mold companies will recommend how to eliminate and prevent regrowth. The inspection will review foundation issues to exterior problems to air quality concerns.
The "thermal envelope" of your home contains materials that absorb moisture and trap pockets of relative humidity. During inspections, we use a moisture meter for carpets and walls, a fiber-optic scope to look inside your walls, and a 300-watt halogen lamp to reveal hidden pockets of mildew. You can often smell or see mold, but these tools illuminate locations and degrees of mildew infestation often overlooked.
Respond to any hint of moisture problems early. Be proactive and use a dehumidifier. Mold is more likely to develop during ongoing events, such as long-term unrepaired leaks in your Washington, D.C. home. If materials dry out and the mold goes dormant, have a mold treatment so spores can be removed by a professional mold treatment firm in Washington, D.C. such as Envirotex Environmental. Have your HVAC system properly balanced each year to maintain the lowest possible relative humidity.
Mold spores are never eliminated because they exist naturally in ambient air. While most of us coexist comfortably, act quickly if you live with sensitivities, allergies, or asthma. "If you find mold, it could be a simple fix such as cleaning up and repainting the spot, or it could require full remediation with containment to remove mold spores from the air." For expert mold treatment advice on your Washington, D.C. home and property, call the professionals at Envirotex Environmental Services today.

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.

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