We understand your need for quick service.  Certified Indoor Environmental provides the most affordable and timely service.  We truly are the experts in limiting liability from mold growth in the Pacific NW.  Our broker partners prefer to work with us because of our non-destructive mold remediation method – the attic sheathing does not need to be removed and therefore saves valuable time and money for you and your client.  We can treat the mold and remove the staining without manually sanding or scraping; in most cases the materials will look brand new.  Please check out this video of our unique method and the 1,000+ 5-star reviews from our customers.  Let us help you with a free assessment, quick service, and priority scheduling.
