Our team of mold abatement experts is trained to deliver great customer support in every sense of the word. Besides providing a pleasant experience, our team will also use efficient methods that help keep costs low without compromising the quality of our service.
Keep in mind that mold is natural and it can be found everywhere. Aside from hospital rooms and other exception, spores can be found in all other indoor and outdoor areas. Removing all the spores from your house is next to impossible. But, elevated spore concentrations can have a detrimental effect on your health, and in these cases, you should remove the excess pollutants to restore the quality of your indoor air.
Our Mold Remediation Process
At Environix, we provide effective mold removal services that focus on restoring indoor air quality in four steps. To start, we close off the affected area in order to contain the spores and prevent them from settling in other parts of your house. Then, our team starts the clearing process, during which they remove all materials that can’t be restored.
After the removal process is complete, we clean the affected area. It’s normal for this stage to last longer than the rest of the remediation process because it’s one of the most important steps. To finalize, we run a few tests in the affected area to ensure the readings are within acceptable levels.
Mold Inspection & Testing Services in Lake Forest Park
Mold is one of the most common allergens found in homes across the world. Getting your house inspected is important, but you need to find a reliable company that goes beyond lab testing.
Most Lake Forest Park mold testing contractors gather a few samples and have these tested in a laboratory. Sure, you’ll receive the results later on, but you will not know why or how the infestation occurred in the first place.
In order to truly take advantage of a home mold inspection, you need to locate the problem that’s causing the unwanted growth. The best way to achieve this is to combine lab tests with a full on-site examination in order to find out the extent and source of the mold problem.
Leaks, poor ventilation, and other sources of excess humidity usually cause fungus growth. To get rid of the mold permanently, you’ll need to identify the source of moisture and find a permanent solution for this issue. Aside from relying on a lab exam, our team of Lake Forest Park mold specialists will also carry out a full inspection and provide solutions that prevent any future problems.
Lead Testing & Inspections
Lead was one of the first metals discovered by ancient civilizations and it was a common ingredient in consumer goods until the early 1980s. Today, this metal is banned from consumer products because it has a detrimental effect on human health. Getting your house tested for lead is a great idea, especially if you have children or pets.
The only problem is that most Lake Forest Park lead testing companies are only allowed to collect samples and provide the results without any actionable information. Our inspectors carry the Lead Risk Assessor certification, which allows them to discuss the problems that this metal can cause and provide tips on how to remove it safely.
It’s important to carry out lead-based paint testing on walls, ceilings, windowsills, and throughout other parts of your house. At the same time, you should also get the soil around your house tested to ensure that there hasn’t been any lead pollution from fuel or old paint.

"The crew got started just before 10:00 and just finished up. Everything went really well. All the guys were very careful not to disturb anything and kept the door closed so our cats wouldn't run out. They were all so considerate of me since I'm still sick -- really they could not have been nicer! I really appreciated that."
