Introduction: If you are having symptoms, and don't know what is causing them, the best way to get a look at it, is through the Air Quality and Environmental testing service choice, that is what I'm going to do even if you have a mold problem, to see if you have other issues that may have even caused the mold problem. First and most importantly, I will talk to anybody about their concerns. Even if they can't afford to have me come to their home, I'll give them free advice on how to improve the health and safety of their home and family. If you need free advice, the best way is to go through my company Facebook page. Also, I don't sell mold remediation or removal, the best way to get a holistic look at your home mold and indoor air quality wise, is to go to the Indoor Air Quality inspection service. No matter what your problem, with me you get a Mold, Indoor air Quality and Healthy Home inspection in one. With everyone else, you get a mold inspection, usually with the plan to sell you mold remediation, whether you need it or not. I don't do Lead, Asbestos, or Radon but I can point you to resources that are sometimes free. I do mold testing and inspection, I don't do removal, but I can tell you how to DIY. I do healthy home inspections, moisture, chemical, ventilation, and microbial issues are my specialty. Second, I am motivated by identifying problems, and helping correct them. My philosophy is if I add value to the customers, the rest will take care of itself, including profit. I am available all day on the weekends, but only evenings during the week, I couldn't reflect that with the schedule availability function! Third, I strictly follow the ethical guidelines of my profession, I DO NOT sell solutions. There is no conflict of interest. I gain nothing by scaring the customer into buying a product or service that is not needed, or is something they can do themselves. I regularly am called into homes where a $5000 or $10000 mold remediation has been quoted, and that was not the real cause of the customer's symptoms or problems. If the solution proposed doesn't solve the problem and also prevent recurrence, you are wasting your money. I will tell you what the cause of your issues are, what you can do to resolve it whether that is a DIY project or refer a professional who is certified and a member of reputable professional organizations. With the three things above in mind, I help customers make the best decision with their constraints in time and resources in mind. I cover an area from Western Pennsylvania to Toledo, and Lake Erie down to south of Columbus. Helping people understand how their home or building works, identifying areas where they can make improvements (often at little or no cost), and helping them make their homes/buildings healthier and safer is everything to me. I LOVE finding the cause of vexing problems. Or finding things that no one else can or will find. I love even more hearing back that the customer feels better, and felt supported during the process.

Air Quality and Environmental Testing

Tim came out to our home and did air testing for VOCs and MVOCs. We have two small children and are working to ensure that our home is a safe place for them to grow up. Tim was caring and professional. He explained his work every step of the way and, now that our test results are in, has given us steps to make our home a healthier place. We are looking forward to continuing our relationship with Tim as we implement his suggestions. He has been a valuable resource for us!

Mold Inspection and Removal

Tim asked questions and took a look at photos that I sent him. He then shared that the issue could be solved without investing in a pro. I appreciate his integrity.
