Mold Detection and Removal


  • All the recommendations I received were for Servpro. I went online yesterday ( and filled in a form and 30 minutes later Peter Wood called and set up an appointment for this morning. He spent an hour examining the inside and outside of my house and then gave me detailed recommendations on how to alleviate my problems. I didnít have a mold problem, just a moisture problem aggravated by carpet that is 20 years past when it should have been removed. He told me how to do some things myself, what could be done as a temporary solution and what could be done for a permanent solution and how expensive each step would be. For example, my drainage has changed over the years so he said I could either spent thousands of dollars having someone regrade my yard or I could spend a dollar or two at Lowes on a rubber drainpipe hose. He even showed me exactly where the hose should be run to get rain away from my house. All of this advice was FREE. It was so great to deal with an honest, ethical person who didnít try to take advantage of me. I highly recommend Peter Wood, 706-549-3366,
