Mold Inspection Washington DC​

Washington DC

Washington DC is the capital of the United States. It’s also one of this country’s most interesting and vibrant cities, with a culture that reflects its unique history.

Founded in 1791 as the permanent national capital on land donated by Maryland and Virginia, Washington was named after President George Washington (1732-1799). The city came under attack during the War of 1812 when British troops invaded from nearby Canada. Today it is an important center for international affairs; many world leaders visit each year to conduct diplomacy at the US State Department or meet with Congress at Capitol Hill, where they are welcomed by a statue of George Washington outside.

Washington offers more than just politics, though: there are plenty of museums, memorials, art galleries and more which give visitors plenty of things to do. Among the top attractions is the famous Smithsonian Institution, with 17 museums, galleries and the National Zoo featuring over 137 million items.

Washington D.C. is known for its hot and humid summers, and chilly winters. The weather in Washington D.C. can change rapidly, so it’s important to be prepared for all types of weather conditions.

The first step in mold inspection is to identify the source of moisture and remove it. A qualified mold inspector will examine visible signs of mold growth, look for additional evidence of a water leak, may do air quality testing and finally make note of any odors or damage caused by molds or leaks. Based on their findings, they make recommendations for further steps to take.

DC Mold Detection

Mold inspection is a good precaution to take. For anybody that doesn’t know, mold tends to favor humid and moist areas. As anyone who has been in the area can attest, Washington, D.C.

is rather humid regardless of the time of year.

That means mold is an ever-present concern. While it might seem obvious for some, actually finding, tracking, and containing mold can be more difficult than people realize.

This is especially true in naturally humid and moist areas like DC.

Mold can damage homes, people, and pets. The spores spread in the air to affect lungs, while the mold itself will eat away at paint and wood to weaken a building and risk further damage and health issues.

The sooner mold is identified and dealt with, the better.

Cleaning up visible growth can be difficult and time intensive. It requires protective clothing and more than just a little elbow grease. You’ll need cleaners that are both scrubbing and disinfecting, while also being free of chemicals that might damage your health more than the mold itself.

The experts at DC Mold Inspection & Removal – Pro Restorer can help.

We have professionals on staff with the knowledge and training to assist you, track mold growth, prevent future outbreaks, and clear visible mold growth.

That includes taking steps like proper containment of the area to limit the risk of spores spreading further than necessary. If you need assistance ASAP then please give us a call.

What are the top causes of mold?

Leaking Pipes: Leaking water pipes or appliances can result in mold. The most common causes of pipe leaks are burst or frozen pipes, leaky valves and worn out washers.


Poor Ventilation
: Mold requires a surface to grow on, damp surfaces provide an ideal place for mold to grow plus the dark environment is a perfect breeding ground for mold spores.


Leaking Air-Conditioning System
: If you have an a/c system with a leak, mold can appear.

It is recommended that you get your air-conditioning system checked annually in order to make sure there are no problems with the system.


Improper Drainage
: Excess moisture on hard surfaces like concrete can cause water to work its way underneath floor tiles and up into walls where it mixes with organic materials.


Humid Environment
: If you live in an environment with rampant humid weather, there is the potential for mold spores to grow in your home.

Rainy climate, dampness and high humidity can all trigger increased mold growth inside of buildings.

Here is what we do:

Step 1: You schedule an appointment with us that best suits you.

Step 2: The inspector will arrive at your home, and speak with you regarding the state of your home. These questions are to identify any symptoms or problems that may have made your home moldy. The inspector will be speaking with you about symptoms such as water damage on walls or ceilings or dampness near windows or doors.

Step 3:If mold is suspected to be growing in an inaccessible area, the inspector may need to break a section of drywall or remove paneling to have a closer look.

Step 4: If mold is detected, the inspector will find the source of the moisture and talk to you about plans for mold removal.
