"I recently called Norm Hoessmann of Aardvark Mould Inspections & Remediation to come and check my rancher due to an odd bad odour. I was amazed with the thorough testing he did and was rather unsettled with what he found in my crawlspace - both mould and rodents! A home owner's nightmare! He tackled the problems with such professionalism - he and his team were always prompt, friendly, and very pleasant. They worked hard and turned my crawlspace into such a clean space, I could eat dinner down there! I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Norm at Aardvark for his very trustworthy inspection and remediation work."
Need a house inspection and testing for mould? I would highly recommend Norm from Aardvark.
He did the whole house inspection - from the attic to the crawl space and took samples for mould testing. I saved a lot of money. He literally checked every square inch of my house. During this inspection, he opened the hot water tank's panel and found corrosion and mould. I called the company that installed it and got a new tank (mine was under warranty) in two days-paid only for labour. Norm was very thorough. He spent about 4 hrs at my house, even went on the roof to check the part of the attic that could not be accessed from inside the house. Gave me a lot of good advise on how to take the windows out and clean everything, windows, frames, rails, how to clean the washing machine, how to disconnect and clean the air ventilation in the bathrooms, what kind of tools and cleaning solutions to use, and much more. I am writing down everything he suggested, and now I am going thruogh the list to clean/fix things. I called many other companies. They are more expensive, even for the mould samples, which are taken to the same lab (I checked!). Even if you think you do not have any problems in your house, it is worth investing in an inspection. Many problems are not even visible.
