Safe and Reliable
Keith Harris, President, founded the company in 2002 after thirteen years (13) in the environmental industry. Mr. Harris holds the designations of CHMM (Certified Hazardous Materials Manager) CMI (Certified Microbial Investigator) CMR (Certified Mold Remediator). Mr. Harris was also asked to help create industry guidelines and a Certification Exam for Mold Abatement. The book titled IICRC S520 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation was born and continues to be the most referenced guide in the industry today.
Mr. Harris became increasingly frustrated with the amount of “misinformation” being distributed by media organizations regarding “toxic mold.” Combine this with stories of people and companies getting ripped off by disreputable individuals and companies with little or no knowledge of environmental protocols while conducting dubious testing and clean-up activities. With that, Mr. Harris decided to start Environmental Mold Services. He saw a true need to provide clients with an environmental service company focused on educating the client of potential property and health hazards, providing clients with healthy living and working environments and a strategy for preventing potential problems should future circumstances arise. That is why it is our goal to provide the best Knowledge, Integrity, Service and Solutions in the industry to our clients.
There are often times when people, and properties, are exposed to unhealthy situations as a result of a high concentration of airborne mold spores or colonization but, not every situation requires the need to conduct expensive testing or spending tens of thousands of dollars for a comprehensive remediation. Mr. Harris felt that if people were treated fairly and educated in what was taking place, the client can make an informed decision based upon the facts, both scientifically and applying a little common sense. Identifying potential hazards with mold is a combination art and science. It is not a “cut and dry” scenario like lead or asbestos and no acceptable levels have been established or are regulated. Molds are living organisms (over 100,000 named species) with a specific function to perform in our environment. Our philosophy is that by having a company focused on providing an ethical service, with real solutions, we will generate goodwill and profitability.
