I am very pleased with the Mold Inspection services provided by Mr. Johnston and 1st Choice Home Inspections! My home received 38" of water during the August 2016 flood and I wanted scientific proof that everything was clean and mold free. The test samples were sent to the lab overnight and I received the results in just a few short days. The report was thorough and easy to read, and I now have complete peace of mind. The report will also help to reassure prospective buyers that the house was properly cleaned and treated. I would recommend 1st Choice Home Inspections to anyone in need of these valuable services. Thank you!
