It all started in 1999 when we moved into a new construction home and had our first child.
It was a happy time until our newborn son began to have chronic colds and ear infections. The doctors said to run a humidifier in his room. Then my wife began having re-occurring sinus infections, and I always had upper respiratory issues.
The doctors had very little to offer except antibiotics. Our immune systems were so worn down that just being near someone with a cold would quickly send us back to the doctor for a prescription. We were emotionally drained, extremely worried about our son, and desperate to be healthy again.
In our second year of being sick, my wife was on her 5th consecutive course of antibiotics. That’s over 50 days of fighting yet another sinus infection. By shear miracle, I found something odd along the bottom of our vinyl framed windows. It was mold, growing between the frame and window glass. It wasn’t big, it wasn’t visually obvious, but it was there. I cleaned the bottoms of all the windows and three days later my wife began feeling better.
That was 20 years ago and we have been healthy ever since. What started as a frustrating experience has become a blessing because it has allowed me to help hundreds of people. It provided a shift in my career path that would eventually become Air Quality Solutions.
Prior to starting my own business in 2002, my background was in outdoor hazardous waste removal in both the nuclear industry as well as soil and groundwater testing. I have spent the past 18+ years in disaster recovery which included mold remediation along with fire and flood restoration. This experience has greatly expanded my knowledge in air quality issues and building science.
Air Quality Solutions is the culmination of my personal experience, property damage restoration, mold remediation, and now mold testing and consulting. Fully certified through the ACAC, we specialize in providing the critical guidance and education that helps in reclaiming lives from mold and poor indoor air quality.
