Mold Testing – A Customer’s Perspective

Violet Frog (formerly DBA: Tom The Mold Guy) does a great job, and I definitely recommend them.  I am a Realtor, and recently I had a situation with a rental property where a mold test was needed quickly. Tom was able to work this appointment into his schedule, and come out to do the testing the very next day.

Just this week, I used Tom’s services again, and in this instance it was for one of my Buyers. There was

an area in a townhouse that I had under contract for the Buyer where we suspected mold, but this could not be determined on a regular inspection. The mold testing lab results revealed that there was some microbial activity in the basement level of the townhouse, and a remediation was recommended in Tom’s report.  My Buyer was very appreciative of the straight forward advice and expertise.

I would also like to say that when I initially learned that a mold test was needed, I did not know where to start. I wanted to make sure to find someone who was knowledgeable and reputable, so I was not comfortable with looking in the Yellow Pages of some similar source for someone to do mold testing.

I called my office and asked for referrals from my Realtor colleagues for people who had done mold testing work for them an did a good job. I called and asked Tom questions, he was very personable and knowledgeable, and he also took the extra time to explain to me exactly what steps he told with the testing.

My clients have been very pleased with the work that Tom has done for them!
