On this page we will post information concerning mold remediation. We have done extensive research on this subject and spent months consulting with experts from major research universities in New York City as well as practitioners and the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. We believe this is the best method, and we also believe anyone who wants to put some elbow grease into this can do it themselves. Our methods are VERY LOW IN COST and HIGH IN QUALITY compared to most methods. We often host training sessions in affected communities, too. Contact us for more details and to find out when we have a training session scheduled in your area, or ask us for one.
