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!

John was a breath of fresh air. His knowledge, professionalism, desire and willingness to work with and advise me to ensure that I performed the best work possible to give my clients the best results possible vs. just being a testing company who only cared about getting paid to perform tests regardless of the outcome was outstanding.

I will be using him exclusively from now on.
