I’m a Blue-Collar Scientist.

Officially I operate a consulting business as a Certified Indoor Environmental Consultant.

Now that may sound like something creative and artistic like a designer or decorator determining style and shape and colors and textures.

No! That’s Not what we do.

what we do

Our client’s may be concerned about colors saying things like “Is it Black Mold” or there’s “green fuzzy stuff on the AC vents.”

We do consulting for indoor air quality for health and safety in homes and businesses, churches, daycare facilities and healthcare to name a few.

Indoor environments where people live and work. Usually for those with sensitivities to mold. Maybe the parents of small children perhaps the adult children of elderly parents. Often for professionally managed businesses, schools, hotels and government facilities that must be diligent in protecting the clients and customers they serve.

We Inspect, .

You see just because many have no issues with mold exposure, others do.

Mold is everywhere and all it takes for it to become a big problem is the right conditions. Maybe that should be called wrong conditions.

Mold development indoors is a symptom of a system or structure malfunction. Perhaps the system or structure is perfectly fine but being pressed to doing more than it was designed for. Sometimes perfect systems and structures, FAIL.

We work with other professionals as required.

Plumbers, HVAC professionals, roofers, builders and engineers.
