Frequently Asked Questions
Have a quick question? Below are answers to the questions we see most often regarding our services, insurance expertise, qualifications and property evaluations. Q’s still whirling around your head? Give us a call and our representatives will do their best to help you out!
Do you do mold testing?
We do not do mold testing and recommend that you contact an Indoor Environmental Professional (IEP) to handle this for you. There are regulations and laws put in place in many states that prohibit mold removal or mold remediation contractors from testing mold. Georgia does not have these regulations in place to protect consumers for misguided and unethical testing, so we warn all consumers to be mindful of certifications and whether or not the remediator you hire has Errors and Omissions insurance specific to mold inspection and testing services. Ultimately, It is a conflict of interest for the mold remediator to dictate to the consumer how largely they are affected by mold in their home or property. Contact our office for IEP recommendations in Atlanta.
Why do we need a property evaluation in order to receive a quote/estimate?
