Great Company

I was having allergy issues in a rental home and was not sure if it was related to the house or not.  IAQ Solutions, Microshield was quick to help, easy to schedule and work with, and conducted a thorough analysis of the air quality in my rental house. With their help I was able to pinpoint the source of my problems and resolve it.

Now I feel like I have my life back again. They were very thorough and went above and beyond the call of duty while inspecting the home. I was very please with their service and attention to detail.

D Bush,
Orlando

So thankful that our paths crossed John and his company Microshield.

Without them our home would still not be safe. With his depth of knowledge and experience in the field he wrote a protocol to fix our home.

Through this he also educated us on the proper processes when it comes to mold and the standards that others should.

His strong ethics and professionalism were solid and I will always refer everyone I know to him.

Jennifer C
Orlando, FL

I'm often asked if I do "mold inspections" to which I reply "I don't do germs (mold) and I don't do bugs (termites) but I'll do electricity and plumbing all day long."

For "germs" I always recommend John and his company Indoor Air Quality Solutions, IAQS - Microshield Environmental Services, LLC.

When my clients work with John I know they will get a very thorough and complete inspection done by someone that truly understands the service he's providing and can explain the results to our mutual clients.

Jim N

Remediation Experts


Will and I CAN NOT thank you enough for your amazing generosity of your time and expertise that you shared with us!

 

A short time ago I was searching the internet in desperation for answers  as to how we could correct a failed remediation of our home performed by an inexperienced contractor. 


I came across  your phone number and called just to ask a simple question.  Little did I know, I just  stumbled onto Superman of the mold world.  “Cheesy, but true”

 

You not only took my call, you took me under your wing.  I know you spent endless hours in conversation with our contractor, assessors and other related parties to help find a solution.   I stood in amazement  at your persistence and quest to help us through this situation.  I repeatedly said to my husband, who is this person who would give so freely of himself. 


What you did for us was more then  I could ever have hoped for, or expected. 

 

Just as I was thinking that, you contacted me with a suggestion for a conference call with all parties involved.  The conference call took place; you acted as a mediator.  Your expertise shined above all others during the 2 hour meeting.  You even helped me through my technical difficulties, since it was evident that I was not computer savvy at all.  Many concerns were addressed and issues resolved as a result of the meeting.  I believe we are now able to move forward with putting our home and life back together.

 

John, you are a rare find!   Your level commitment and dedication to your profession and others is truly outstanding.  If I could fly a banner over the state of FL recommending you and  Microshield Environmental Services, LLC, I would do so.

 

God Bless!

Great company


I can't believe the level of professionalism that I was shown by this company.


They went above and beyond with their follow up and making sure that the work done on my house was done according to their specifications.


I would highly recommend this company.


Jill H.
Orlando, FL

A Good Experience!


I had an overall good experience with Microshield Environmental Services, LLC. It was my first time dealing with potential Chinese drywall, so I searched for a company that could offer testing for it. Not a lot of companies do that, so that's how I found them.


After that, they had good follow up with the testing, and they were there when they said they would be. They did everything they said they would do.

IAQ Solutions, Microshield provided a full microbial inspection and detailed report of a house I was in the process of trying to purchase. They informed me of everything going on in the house, from any mold in the walls, to what is coming through the air vents.
 
They performed a visual inspection as well as taking indoor environmental measurements. They measure down to .5 micrometers for particulates.
 
The inspection report is very detailed and gives both a general overview of what they are are looking at with specific details of what they found.
 
They also give a good overview of general recommendations for things anyone can do to improve the air quality in their home, as well as very specific recommendations to improve on based on their findings.
 
IAQ Solutions, Microshield was very timely and professional and helped answer all of my questions. They reviewed their findings with me, summarizing what was going into the report. I received the report electronically and in a timely manner. The report helped satisfy the requirements my lender was requesting concerning the house. I enjoyed working with them to learn more about the home I purchased in addition to satisfying my lender's requirement.
 
Everything was great! The report provided all the information the lender was looking for and I was a satisfied home buyer fully informed about the house I was trying to purchase.
 
Melissa
Orlando, FL

I had had a health issue which I suspected might have been caused by our indoor air quality, & my wife had had coughing problems as well.

I called upon Microshield to assess our air quality. They arrived soon after &, with the help of a variety of technical instruments used to measure air quality factors, they made their way throughout our house, attic & garage.

Their obvious expertise in translating the meaning of these various readings enabled them to identify a kitchen pantry as the primary source of a humidity problem.

By identifying the effects of characteristics unique to that room they offered a number of ideas for eliminating the problem.

I am currently considering which option to use, & they have assured me that they are always available to answer any questions I may have.

In fact, they called me soon after I received their report to offer any assistance I might need.

BEN
PALM COAST, FL

John & Lydia, the owners & operators of Microshield, performed a thorough assessment of all factors influencing our indoor air quality, including the interiors of 2 A/C air handlers.

Additionally, while Lydia continued testing various indoor locations, John went outside & examined the exterior of our house, including the roof.

Their final report identified a number of problem areas, both inside & out that we have begun to address. Their final report of 24 pages, including photos, was invaluable in helping us to understand how & why problems develop & how to correct them.

It translated some very technical analysis & results into layman's terms that was both interesting & helpful as we addressed our problem areas.


I had had a health issue which I suspected might have been caused by our indoor air quality, & my wife had had coughing problems as well.

Thoroughly Professional!


Microshield ES investigated our water leak-mold episode, guided us through what could have been a very stressful period, and left all the participants feeling comfortable.


Bobby .
Merritt Island, FL

We had a shower leak, which caused some mold damage in our master bathroom.

John and Lydia came the same day we contacted them. They came with all the right equipment to detect the leak and assess the mold situation.

They helped us contact the remediation company to come out the next day. They worked closely with the remediation company during the entire process of cleaning up.

They also preformed the clearance test after the remediation and had the remediation company do some re-cleaning when they did not pass the test the first time.

John and Lydia are very knowledgeable and were very sensitive to our needs .

Their degree of professionalism and care was above our expectation .

They were very dependable and provided us with all the documents as they promised.

We would highly recommend them to anyone who may need their services.

Lu

Nothing but good!


Microshield Environmental Services was extremely thorough, professional, easy to work with, and responsive.


I have nothing but good stuff to say about them.


They were excellent!


Joy C.

Very knowledgeable


John really knows about air quality and did a great job finding out what was causing our home's air quality problems.


I would definitely recommend.


Jennifer
Winter Park, FL

We had mold testing done previously which identified the type of mold, but did not pinpoint the source.

I looked at Microshield's website and was impressed, so I called for an appointment and spoke to Lydia.

They did a very thorough job of testing and inspecting the house. They identified a problem in our AC closet that had never been found in 20 years of living here and that will fix the AC issues we have had for a long time.

We have annual AC inspections, so I was shocked. The AC closet is actually pulling air from the attic, which vented to the outside, which is likely the reason there is such a high particulate count in the house and why the house is so hard to keep cool in the summer.

They also identified the source of the mold. We were puzzled about the source since we had not had any roof leak in many years and no water runs on that side of the house.

We received the report as promised, via email.

I highly recommend this company.

April G
Orlando FL

Excellent Company!


I have been very pleased with my experiences with this company.

Flynn .

Knowledgeable and Excellent Service


Both John and Lydia are knowedgeable and customer oriented.


Although they were not the lowest priced;


I believe they were the best value.


Follow-up advice has been provided on at least three or four subsequent occasions.


Don .
Oviedo, FL

It was very hard to understand what was going on, but took the time to explain and make me feel better.


The work that was done was a lot and I had no idea of the work into getting mold out.


Your test and explaination of what had to be done and test to proof that it was taken care of made the family at ease and feel safe in our own home again.

Thank you

My experience with Microshield Environmental Services has been great.


They come to my house and to my business to do indoor air quality testing and stuff like that.

Kurt G.

Wintergarden, FL


We discovered that a toilet had been leaking from the base into a plywood subfloor due to an insufficiently thick wax ring.

By the time we called Microshield, the air in the home smelled musty, and all three of our children were complaining of stomach pain and other odd symptoms.

They mapped the moisture beneath our wood floor, and talked us through a very conservative approach to identifying the problem and cleaning out our home.

Their tests identified the bacteria that was making the kids ill, and their moisture maps by infrared camera led to the discovery of some nasty mold behind our kitchen cabinets.

They worked very well with our insurance company, and even rewrote invoices so that I could submit appropriate ones to our adjustor and pay out of pocket for additional testing I requested.

I also felt they were truly interested in fixing the problem. This is a husband and wife team who seem to have made it their mission to standardize mold remediation to a national level.

They were meticulous and professional throughout, and very responsive to my questions.

Their prices were very fair, and they were conservative in their counseling as far as sampling is concerned.

They are not alarmists, they will not try to instill panic in order to convince you to test every inch of your house for mold.

I am the type of homeowner who asks lots of questions, and I think overall they did their best to answer them.

Stephanie Schoolfield
WINTER PARK, FL

We noticed something in our home smell musty, and causing us to feel ill while at home. We Googled mold inspection companies and found Microshield. They were very helpfull on the phone. Lydia explained the process to me in great patient detail.

John and Lydia came to our home and found a leaking shower. They mapped the moisture in our walls around our shower and explained the remediation process.
They checked the entire home to ensure that there were no other areas to worry about.

Their inspection and protocol prices were right in the middle of the pack and they did'nt want to charge us for a lot of extra testing.

We would recommend Microshield to anyone!

Lisa Noonun
Orlando, Florida

Thank you so much for coming out to diagnosis the air for our home that provides recovery services and housing for homeless moms with children.

We have many calls daily asking for assistance, and we didn’t want to open the back apartments until a professional company inspected them.

We highly recommend your company for their thoroughness and time spent with us sharing ideas for immediate air enhancement along with a long term treatment program.

The air we breathe is so vital to our health and we sincere appreciate the environmental services that Microshield provides.

We would recommend Microshield to any customer.

Microshield responded quickly and professionally when I contacted them regarding a water leak in a bathroom of my daughter's home. 

My daughter has an autoimmune disease and John and Lydia were very understanding of our concerns regarding mold in the home as a result of the water leak.  They provided a comprehensive protocol for the restoration contractor and even came out on a Saturday to test the home. 

My daughter and I are very pleased with their service and their fee.

Michelle Goddard, Orlando

I am pleased to share my professional experience with John. I have known John for a couple of years now.

He has functioned as a mold assessor. My company has functioned as a mold remediator.

John exhibits professional and personal qualities that I respect and place great value on:

1. Professionally, he is meticulous and does not accept work that does not meet or exceed industry standards.

2. Personally, he exhibits the highest ethics with respect to his work and the greatest respect for his clients.

I have repeatedly referred my clients to John for their mold testing needs.

While his standards for clearance are more strict than most mold assessors we work with, we are always comfortable knowing that we are leaving our clients with a properly restored environment, with respect to mold, when John does the Post Remediation Verification Inspection & Clearance Testing.

He was willing to take the time required to answer any of our questions and listen to the whole story. Our results were negative, but the knowledge and peace of mind were worthwhile.

Casey Dare,
Superintendent / Customer Service manager,
KB HOME Construction

I first met John when Buyers of mine wanted their home tested for absolutely everything in the world! I thought their request was frivolous, considering that the home they were buying was just about brand new!

But John came in, set up his equipment, and in a very professional way, set up an unbiased testing ground to see if there were any allergens, mold spores, or anything that was dangerous living in the air in the home.

His work became a curious project for me to observe. With technology that befuddled me, John proceeded to maneuver his equipment like a pro! Ultimately, when the time came for the inspections to be completed, John's report was succinct, exact, and presented in a clear, precise and respectful manner.

I have just called John to have the drywall tested in our personal home! If I did not think John was THE BEST in Orlando, I would not have called on him the minute I heard about the Chinese Drywall problems!

CALL MICROSHIELD! YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID!

Debbie Kantor, Realtor

John was a breath of fresh air.
