The Disruptor in the Mold Industry

 

We try hard not to be like other companies.

Here’s the how and the why:

Sure, there are those out there touting their wares as being “different” but when it gets right down to it, they eventually reveal themselves to be the same as everyone else.  Slight differences here and there but nothing significant by any means.

We don’t want to operate like that. 

We are not going to settle…Read More

 COVID-19 Guidelines

 

The following guidelines are for your protection as well as our staffs.  We are utilizing the CDC guidelines as well as our own additional precautions.

Inspections:

Inspections will still be offered to our customers.  However, in these interesting times, we now have strict precautions that we are taking.

  • An exterior or crawlspace inspection should pose no real threats to you or our staff if the guidelines below are followed.
  • All communication with our customers will be via electronic means, as best/when possible. Texting, phone and or video calls will be utilized as a replacement.
  • Face to face interaction will be limited or not at all. If face to face interaction is unavoidable, it is our request that all parties stay at least 6’ (more is better) apart. All parties should be wearing some combination of personal protection equipment such as masks and/or gloves as warranted.
  • It is our request that your issues be stated as clear and detailed as possible so that it is not necessary for you to be present during the inspection. It is prudent to separate yourself from an outside party during an inspection.
  • Interior inspections, where we have to physically enter the home, will require further precautions.
  • Prior to the inspection, you must have relayed detailed information to our office so that we can perform the inspection with limited contact.
  • Please do not be offended when we ask the required questions as to whether or not you, a member of your family or close family member/friend has had or currently has the virus. Have you traveled outside of our country recently or if you are currently feeling symptoms of the flu or similar. 
  • We will inform you via electronic means (either by text or phone), when we have arrived at your home.
  • You will then inform us when it is safe to enter your home. Please respect current social distancing recommendations. If you have a means of covering your face with a mask, please do so.  Our inspectors will be covered at all times.
  • Please contain any animals that you may have during our visit.
  • We will perform the inspection quickly, without touching anything within your home if possible. You will receive a report promptly detailing our findings and we can then discuss the findings via electronic means.
  • It is recommended that any common areas we need to travel through be disinfected by you as you see appropriate once we have left the site.

 

Performing actual work in or around your home:

  • Crawlspace or exterior work can continue unimpeded. We should not require any contact with you face to face unless something unexpected comes up. We can then implement the social distancing guidelines and proper personal protection suggested for conditions/situation.
  • Interior work will require more precautions for the protection of you, your family and our staff.
  • All of our staff will be masked and gloved as appropriate.
  • We will contain our work area as a barrier between ourselves and you.
  • Air scrubbers will be required on all projects.
  • Fogging disinfectant prior to, during or after the project will be on an as needed basis.
  • Please separate yourself as much as possible from the project. If face to face contact is necessary, please practice the social distancing suggestions.
  • It is recommended that any common areas we need to travel through be disinfected by you as you see appropriate once we have left the site.

Please remember that these new guidelines are for the protection of you as well as us. 

Be smart, distance yourself and stay safe – stay alive.

Lifetime Crawlspace Monitoring

Our Crawl Space Monitoring Program is an innovative yet straightforward approach to monitoring a crawl space for mold, moisture and other issues year round. If there are potential areas of concern, we’ll let you know before they become a BIG problem.

Each of our applicable customers is entered into our re-inspection database upon completion of their project. Re-inspections take place based on the initial date of service. After the inspection, you receive a report detailing our observations along with a link to pictures showing how things look.

If you suspect something has gone awry between inspections, such as a leak or a unknown smell, give us a call and we’ll come out sooner.

This is a free service we provide as a means of making sure you are taken care of for the foreseeable future.

No other company even comes close to this type of service!

Here’s our 10 point checklist:

  • The Crawlspace door: Is it in good shape (hinges, latches, wood, etc.)?  Does it seal properly?  The crawlspace access door is your first line of defense against undesirable animals gaining entry to underneath your home.  Yikes!
  • Fungal Growth: Any sign of fungal growth can be quickly nipped in the bud before it gets a chance to become an issue.  Fungal growth is a sure sign that your crawlspace has a moisture problem.
  • Insulation condition: Hanging insulation can mean excess condensation is occurring in your crawlspace.  We also look for signs of rodents nesting in your warm insulation.
