Why Credentials MATTER For NOVA Mold Remediation

Credentials, Certifications, & Expertise Are The
Pillars Of A Great NOVA Mold Remediator

Proper Mold Remediation Leaves ZERO Room
For Inexperienced Amateurs & DIY Projects.


There are times when you might be able to get away with winging it. Mold remediation is NOT one of those situations. No, for adequate Northern VA mold remediation, you need an obsessive, highly-trained EXPERT on the subject matter.

It’s also important that they hold as many relevant industry and government certifications as possible. There are no barriers to becoming a mold removal tech in the state of Virginia.

To avoid getting stuck with an amateur who doesn’t know a THING about mold, turn to Northern VA’s mold remediation NERDS. The standards we hold ourselves to are higher than anything else you’ll find in the DC area, and we think our credentials speak for themselves.

We’ve Collected MULTIPLE Certifications
For YOUR Peace Of Mind

We have multiple different certifications from different organizations and government agencies that specialize in keeping homeowners safe from mold.

For instance, we’re a certified Mold Removal Specialist (MRS) according to the Institute Of Inspection, Cleaning & Restoration Certification (IICRC).

Here’s what that certification entails:

  • We can perform mold remediation for structures and contents
  • We can design and maintain containments 
  • We can control pressure differentials 
  • We can safely work in mold-contaminated environments
  • We understand common remediation work practices 
  • We review and improve protocols 
  • We understand and follow industry standards and legal requirements 
  • We can recognize conditions conducive for causing mold growth

The IICRC has also certified us as an Applied Microbial Remediation Technician for dealing with both mold and sewage material in a way that protects the health and safety of occupants and workers.

Finally, as an IICRC Certified Water Damage Restoration Technician, we are’ble to identify the source of moisture and remove the contamination so mold does not return. Those are just a few of the mold testing and removal credentials we’ve racked up.

The main difference between us and our competitors is we actually APPLY the principles taught in the IICRC certification and S520 Standard for Professional Mold Remediation.

Lead-Safe Certified By The EPA
For Safety & Compliance

Oftentimes, mold appears in older homes that may have other harmful components. One VERY common example–particularly in homes built before 1978–is the presence of lead-based paint.

In 2010, the EPA announced the Lead Renovation, Repair, And Painting Rule. This requires any company that performs renovations or repairs that disturb lead-based paint to obtain EPA certification. This extra criterion for mold remediation is important, and it’s a credential we’re proud to hold.

As we’ve mentioned, we’re not just mold specialists. We’re mold NERDS. We genuinely enjoy learning about the latest and greatest in mold remediation science.
