Allergens in the Home

We often tell clients and trainees, “Trust your nose.” If you like being in a home, it’s more likely to be safe. If you can’t stand the smell, it’s likely worth finding out why.

Allergens can be hidden, but often our sneezer finds them quickly. Those suffering from asthma also can sense air quality issues.

The Value of a Mold Inspection

From a recent client,

The rental management company is reimbursing me for rent and security deposit.  I couldn’t thank you enough for all of your help.  I will recommend you to anyone who could benefit from your detailed inspections.  Thank you again!!!!!  Please let me know if there is anywhere I can leave a review or recommendation.

When clients contact us for mold issues, the living situation is quickly becoming dire. Understanding this, we schedule, sample, and report quickly in order to expedite the client’s process.

The email above was received just over two days after we arrived on-site. Our client was able to pack up and move out with money in-hand. Her investment in us, you might say, was well rewarded.
