Mold is all around us — hundreds of thousands of different varieties that are invisible to the naked eye. Central Virginia’s moist, humid climate creates the dampness that mold needs in order to breed. Within days, the spores released by the mold in your humid crawl space, basement, air ducts of your HVAC system, or other area of the home could begin to wreak havoc on the respiratory systems of your entire family.
At MoldX, we believe that everyone deserves to breathe easy. If our licensed staff inspects your home or workplace and find conditions suitable for fungal growth, we not only restore safe breathing conditions by removing harmful microbes, mold, and other toxins, we also install state-of-the-art prevention products to make sure your crawl spaces, heating and cooling systems, air ducts, attics, and other areas of the home remain uncontaminated.
Because prevention is the key to good health, the sooner you take action against mold, the sooner you’ll safeguard your respiratory health. Read more about our services by clicking on the links below.
Thorough mold remediation done by a licensed mold removal contractor will make a lasting impact on your quality of air and, subsequently, your quality of life.
Located in Richmond and servicing Central Virginia and beyond, MoldX has the resources and skills to carefully decontaminate houses and commercial spaces, instantly protecting both your health and your investment. From replacing insulation and vapor barriers to removing damaged building materials to cleaning HVAC components and ductwork, we’re equipped to remedy even the most challenging scenarios.
To make sure we get to all the problematic sources causing a mold issue in your home or business and prevent future growth, we perform a comprehensive inspection. We roll up our sleeves and inspect crawl spaces, basements, attics, other areas containing plumbing, and even HVAC systems and ductwork. We physically remove the mold before using a solution to kill even the microscopic spores that lurk invisibly, working cautiously in a contained environment so as to prevent the possible spread of mold spores to other non-contaminated areas.
Once the indoor air quality in your home or workplace has been restored, we can help you take precautions against future mold contamination. Ventilation and dehumidification systems encourage cross-ventilation and prevent mold problems from returning, while special paint products provide a barrier between wood structures and moisture.

AIR DUCT CLEANING
The air ducts in your home or office act as a superhighway that mold spores, dust, pollen, and other pollutants use for easy access to every area of the building. Whether the air ducts are transporting contaminated air from one part of the house to another or whether mold is growing in the air handler itself, a dirty HVAC system equals dirty air.
MoldX’s air duct services include cleaning the ducts, all system components, and removing microbial contamination. Using a NADCA-compliant source removal technique, we’ll tackle your entire system, including your air handler cabinet, blower motor, condensing unit coils, trunk line, supply lines, and return grilles and ductwork.
Performed on a regular basis, air duct cleaning discourages mold growth and promotes clean, healthy breathing throughout your home or office. Return to top.
Central Virginia residents are no stranger to humidity. But did you know that humidity in your crawl spaces, air ducts, and basements can be a serious threat to your health?
Excess moisture buildup or water damage from leaks, floods, or fire can give mold the damp environment it needs to multiply rapidly. If the moisture is allowed to continue, mold spores will quickly contaminate the air you breathe.
If we can begin the dry out process within 24-48 hours of the water incident we can reduce or eliminate the potential for microbial growth and odor causing bacteria. If the situation requires, MoldX will also work with your insurance company, claims adjuster, and/or contractors to keep a potentially stressful experience headache-free.
We can help you recover your home from the damaging effects of water, moisture, humidity, and harmful microbes that may have taken advantage of the dampness. Affected areas will be dried out or, if unsalvageable, cut out to be replaced. If mold has developed as a result of the water damage, we’ll use our effective mold remediation techniques to clean and disinfect the area. Return to top.
INDOOR AIR QUALITY
The EZ Breathe® indoor ventilation system uses state-of-the-art technology to clear humidity, mold spores, allergenic material, odors, and other toxins from the air you breathe every day. Operating quietly and unobtrusively in crawl spaces and basements, EZ Breathe® is an inexpensive way to ensure a healthy living or working environment.
Dehumidifiers actually create yet another environment that’s conducive to mold growth, but EZ Breathe® pulls the poor indoor air out of your home or business and the excess humidity with it, making a daily difference in the air you breathe. Six to ten times a day, your breathing air is completely changed, all without you realizing it, except for a marked improvement in your health. And, even better, it only costs as much as powering a 40-watt light bulb to operate, with no pans to empty or maintenance to perform. Return to top.
