Question: Many companies have nice websites with proud boasts and a lot of experience, but how do I know if it’s true? Some websites also promise you can do it yourself with specialized equipment.

One should always ask for credentials, proven experience and the qualifications of the staff prior to hiring an “expert." Only testing by a professional expert can uncover the real answers you need regarding mold. Your health is too important to take a chance on an advertised gimmick.
