Acremonium naturally found in soils, decaying organic matter and plant debris. Can be found in food and indoor environments. A common allergen. Can produce a trichothecene mycotoxins and volatile organic compounds.
Agrocybe/Coprinus This genus is a basidiomycetous mold. Fungal spores which are from mushrooms. The specific mushroom species can not be identified on the culture plate. Many mushroom spores are reported to be allergenic
Alternaria A common saprobe found on decaying wood, decaying plants, food, spoil and outdoor air. Some species are plant pathogens. Indoors, it can be found in house dust, carpets, damp areas around showers and windows frames and anywhere condensation occurs. Because of its abundance and ubiquity, Alternaria is one of the most important fungal allergens and is recognized as the chief fungal cause of hay fever. Infection is extremely rare.
Arthrinium is a cosmopolitan filamentous fungus isolated from plant debris and soil. There are no infections so far reported due to Arthrinium in humans or animals. Since Arthrinium is cosmopolitan in nature, it is an occasional laboratory contaminant.
Ascomycete constitute the largest class of fungi characterized by the production of sexual spores in structures call asci. This includes plant pathogens, saprobes and decomposers. With a few exceptions, most Ascomycetes do not grow in buildings and are seldom agents of wood rot. Ascomycetes are the perfect stages of molds like Aspergillus and Penicillium. At high levels, Ascomycete spores may cause allergies.
Since most Ascomycetes are plant pathogens, ascospores are common during the growing season of plants and are rare during winter, such as those of the Ascomycetes genera: Daldinia, Hypoxylon, Paraphaeosphaeria, Phaeosphaeria and Leptosphaeria.
Aspergillus Reported to be allergenic. Members of this genus are reported to cause ear infections. Many species produce mycotoxins which may be associated with disease in humans and other animals. Toxin production is dependent on the species or a strain within a species and on the food source for the fungus. Some of these toxins have been found to be carcinogenic in animal species. Several toxins are considered potential human carcinogens. Common cause of extrinsic asthma (immediate-type hypersensitivity: type I). Acute symptoms include edema and bronchospasms, chronic cases may develop pulmonary emphysema.
Aureobasidium A Common saprobe frequently isolated from soil, plant surfaces, seeds, grains, fruits and other food, human skin and nails. Common indoors in humid areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, poorly maintained HVAC systems and window frames. Allergies to Aureobasidium are common, but infections are rarely reported.
Basidiomycetes A class of fungi characterized by spores formed on basidia. Included the mushrooms, toadstools, wood bracket fungi and puffballs. Some species are edible, such as Agaricus bisporus, the commercially cultivated mushrooms. A few species cause wood brown rot, white rot and dry rot in buildings.
Bipolaris The genus Bipolaris is cosmopolitan in nature and can be isolated from plant debris and soil. It contains about 45 species, most of which are subtropical and tropical plant parasites. However, a few species are capable of causing disease in humans.
Botrytis is a filamentous fungus isolated from decaying plants. No infections due to Botrytis have been reported in humans or animals. It may act as a facultative pathogen in plants and is commonly considered as a contaminant
Cercospora This genus is a mold that lacks a known sexual state and thus belongs to the Fungi Imperfecti.
Chaetomium A common fungus in soils, dung, decaying organic matter, seeds and wood or other cellulose-containing materials. Can be found indoors in water-damaged buildings on sheet rock, wall paper and other paper products. It is a common cause of food spoilage. In some species it is allergenic, but rarely causes human infections.
Chrysosporium A common soil saprobe occasionally isolated from human or animal skin and nail. Chrysosporium inops is xerophilic and occurs in food.
Cladosporium is widely distributed as plant pathogens and saprobes. It is the most frequently found fungus in outdoor air. Indoors, it usually occurs at low concentrations in damp or humid areas, but may be found in high concentrations in water-damaged building materials. Its ability to sporulate heavily and to get airborne makes it an important fungal allergen. Frequently isolated as a contaminant in foods. Only occasionally associated with disease in humans; one species can cause chronic subcutaneous infection.
Curvularia A common saprobe found in soils, plants, cereals and cellulosic materials such as paper and archives. Some species are plant pathogens, Can Be found indoors. It is allergenic and may cause infections in immunocompromised individuals.
Epicoccum A cosmopolitan saprobe isolated from air, soil, grain, seeds, textiles, paper products and food materials. Can be a plant pathogen and is a common cause of leaf spots of various plants. Can be found in indoor environments, where it can grow under conditions of low humidity. It is a known allergen and is occasionally isolated from human skin and sputum.
Eurotium Can be found in stored food, fruit juices, grains, nuts, milled rice, spices, meat products and peas. Also commonly occurs in indoor environments. Eurotium herbariorum may case keratitis and indigestion in man.
Exophiala is a dematiaceous fungus widely distributed in soil, plants, water, and decaying wood material. As well as being a saprophyte in nature, it is the causative agent of various human infections.
Fusarium A common soil fungus. It is found on a wide range of plants. It is often found in humidifiers. Several species in this genus can produce potent trichothecene toxins. The trichothecene (scirpene) toxin targets, the following systems: circulatory, alimentary, skin and nervous. Produces vomitoxin on grains during unusually damp growing conditions. Symptoms may occur either through ingestion of contaminated grains or possibly inhalation of spores. The genera can produce hemorrhagic syndrome in humans (alimentary toxic aleukia). This is characterized by nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dermatitis, and extensive internal bleeding. Reported to be allergenic. Frequently involved in eye, skin and nail infections
GanodermaLarge very hard, woody bracket fungus that grows on living and dead trees. Some species are common on oaks, chestnuts and conifers such as hemlocks, spruces and pines. Many species are being investigated for possible medicinal uses
GeotrichumGeotrichum is a yeast found worldwide in soil, water, air, and sewage, as well as in plants, cereals, and dairy products. It is also found in normal human flora and is isolated from sputum and feces. The genus Geotrichum includes several species. The most common one is Geotrichum candidum. Geotrichum clavatum and Geotrichum fici are among other Geotrichum species. Geotrichum fici has an intense smell resembling that of pineapple. As well as being a colonizer of the intestinal tract, Geotrichum spp. may cause opportunistic infections in immunocompromised host and these infections are referred to as geotrichosis. The infections are usually acquired via ingestion or inhalation. Bronchial and pulmonary as well as disseminated infections and fungemia due to Geotrichum have been reported. It has also been isolated from infections resulting from trauma.
Apart from its clinical significance, there are very recent claims on environmental damages that Geotrichum might have caused. It has been blamed for destroying the aluminium and data-storing polycarbonate resin that are found in the structure of compact discs. This in turn led to discoloration of the disc, with the disc becoming partly transparent. The exact role of Geotrichum in this destruction process requires confirmation.
Gliocladium is a mitosporic filamentous fungus which is widely distributed in soil and decaying vegetation. It is commonly considered as a contaminant.
Graphium is a filamentous fungus found in soil and plant material. While Graphium may be isolated as an occasional contaminant, its telemorphs, Petriella, Pseudallescheria, and Ceratocystis may cause diseases. Most isolates of Graphium isolated in the clinical laboratory are synanamorphic forms of Pseudallescheria boydii or secondary forms with Scedosporium apiospermum.
Mucor is a filamentous fungus found in soil, plants, decaying fruits and vegetables. As well as being ubiquitous in nature and a common laboratory contaminant, Mucor spp. may cause infections in man, frogs, amphibians, cattle, and swine. Most of the Mucor spp. are unable to grow at 37°C and the strains isolated from human infections are usually one of the few thermotolerant Mucor spp..
Myxomycete is an ancient form of slime mold. Not much is presently known about Myxomycete. It is often found on decaying wood or organic material
Ophiostoma This genus is an ascomycetous mold
Paecilomyces A common saprobe found on dead plant and compost. Some species are insect parasites. Can cause food decomposition. It is rarely a human pathogen, but can cause infection in animals. However, some species are emerging as causative agents of disease in immunocompromised individuals.
Penicillium A wide number of organisms have placed in this genera. Identification to species is difficult. Often found in aerosol samples. Commonly found in soil, food, cellulose and grains. It is also found in paint and compost piles. It may cause hypersensitivity pneumonitis, allergic alveolitis in susceptible individuals. It is reported to be allergenic (skin). It is commonly found in carpet, wall paper, and in interior fiberglass duct insulation. Some species can produce mycotoxins. Common cause of extrinsic asthma (immeadiate-type hypersensitivity: type I). Acute symptoms include edema and bronchospasms, chronic cases may develop pulmonary emphysema.
Periconia This genus is a mould that lacks a known sexual state and thus belongs to the Fungi Imperfecti. It is generally classified as a dematiaceous (dark-walled) fungus.
Phialophora occurs in nature as a soft rot fungus on wood, which and often cause a blue stain. Can cause diseases in immunocompromised individuals.
Phoma A common indoor air allergen. The species are isolated from soil and associated plants (particularly potatoes). Produces pink and purple spots on painted walls. It will grow on butter, paint cement and rubber. It may cause phaeohyphomycosis a systematic or subcutaneous disease
Pithomyces This genus is a mold that lacks a known sexual state and thus belongs to the Fungi Imperfecti. It is generally classified as a dematiaceous (dark-walled) fungus. Grows on dead grass in pastures. Causes facial eczema in ruminants
Rhizopus Frequently isolated from soil and agricultural products, such as cereals and vegetables. Can cause infection in immunocompromised, malnourished or severely burned individuals.
Rhodotorula A reddish yeast frequently isolated from air, soil, water, fruit juice, dairy products and other substances. Typically found as a saprobe in moist environments indoors such as carpeting, cooling coils, water tanks, humidifiers and drain pipes. Reported to be allergenic. Has colonized terminally ill patients.
Rust Obligate parasitic fungi, which belong to Tellomycetes – Uredinales that cause plant disease.
Smut Obligate parasites and pathogens of plants that cause smut on various plant pars such as Silene anthers, corn kernels, onion bulbs and rice grains.
Sporobolomyces can be commonly detected in air samples. Frequently encountered indoors in water tanks, humidifiers, drain pans, etc.
Sporothrix Isolated from soil, live or dead plants and peat moss. Sporothrix schenckii is an agent of human sporotrichosis, cutaneous infection and ocular mycosis, usually in immunocompromised people.
Stachybotrys Several strains of this fungus (S. atra, S. chartarum and S. alternans are synonymous) may produce a trichothecene mycotoxin- Satratoxin H - which is a poisonous by inhalation. The toxins are present on the fungal spores. This is a slow growing fungus on media. It does not compete well with other rapidly growing fungi. The dark colored fungi grows on building material with a high cellulose content and a low nitrogen content. Areas with relative humidities above 55%% and are subject to temperature fluctuations are ideal for toxin production.
Individuals with chronic exposure to the toxin produced by this fungus reported cold and flu symptoms, sore throats, diarrhea, headaches, fatigue, dermatitis, intermittent local hair loss and generalized malaise. The toxins produced by this fungus will suppress the immune system affecting the lymphoid tissue and the bone marrow. Animals injected with the toxin from this fungus exhibited the following symptoms, necrosis and hemorrhage within the brain, thymus, spleen, intestine, lung, heart, lymph node, liver, and kidney. Affects by absorption of the toxin in the human lung are known as pneumomycosis.
This organism is rarely found in outdoor samples. It is usually difficult to find in indoor air samples unless it is physically disturbed or if there is (speculation- a drop in the relative humidity). The spores are in a gelatinous mass. Appropriate media for the growth of this organism will have a high cellulose content and a low nitrogen content. The spores will die readily after release. The dead spores are still allergenic and toxigenic. Percutaneous absorption has caused mild symptoms.
There is controversy about toxigenic effects through inhalation of spores or mycelia
Tetraploa This genus is a mold that lacks a known sexual state and thus belongs to the Fungi Imperfecti.
Torula: A very common hyphomycete on all kinds of dead, decaying herbaceous stems, especially in humid conditions. It forms dense, olive green to black areas of "mold", the colour that of the abundant conidia. It is reported to be allergenic.
Trichoderma Very common especially in soil and decaying wood, dead leaves, fallen timber, compost heaps and activated sludge. Can be found indoors in water damaged buildings. Has occasionally bee associated with disease in immunocompromised individuals.
Tritirachium A saprobe commonly isolated from decaying plant materials. Easily gets airborne. Can cause corneal ulcers.
Ulocladium Found as a saprobe in soil, plant materials, rotten wood, appear, textiles and cellulose materials. Frequently collected in air and dust samples. Can grow indoors on water damaged building materials. Has not been associated with disease in humans, but can be very allergenic.
Verticillium is a widely distributed filamentous fungus that inhabits decaying vegetation and soil. Some Verticillium species may be pathogenic to arthropods, plants, and other fungi. It is commonly considered as a contaminant. Verticillium may very rarely cause human disease.
Wallemia A very xerophilic fungus that has been isolated from soil, air, hay, textiles and food such as jam, salted fish and mild products. Can cause allergies.
Yeast Various yeasts are commonly identified on air samples. Some yeasts are reported to be allergenic. They may cause problems if a person has had previous exposure and developed hypersensitivity's. Yeasts may be allergenic to susceptible individuals when present in sufficient concentrations.
Zygomycete is not the name of particular fungus, but rather the name of a Class of fungi. This Class includes three Orders (Mucorales, Mortierellales, and Entomophthorales). These Orders in turn contain a number of specific fungi.

I am so appreciative of Marc’s fantastic expertise and service. He went above and beyond to help us to understand our results and really knew what he was talking about. I am so thankful that I called AMT!! It helped me to be able to sleep better at night.
We had some concerns about potential mold due to water damage. After extensive research, we contacted AMT. From the very start they were professional and completely engaged- actively listening to our concerns, patiently explaining potential options and costs. Although AMT was more expensive than some other outfits we found, we selected AMT based on their certifications, detailed knowledge and willingness to educate us. It was a wise choice, and AMT was fantastic to work with. Scheduling an appointment was a little difficult due to the pandemic, but Marc arrived on time (and was very careful with pandemic precautions). He was extremely professional and personable, and was more than willing to talk with us, explaining the various tests and his approach. He also was very clear about expectations, how to interpret any results/recommendations and timelines. Our final report and test results were through, clear and his recommendations were sensible. I would totally recommend AMT, without any hesitation.
Incredibly knowledgeable individual, even though I needed remediation and he only does testing, he spent 30 minutes on the phone with me about mold, venting and planning for my project. Would highly recommend if you need an expert to test for mold.
Marc provided me with valuable information regarding mold levels and remediation, even though I called him from NC and he knew I wouldn't actually be using his services. He took the time to answer all my questions and potentially saved me $1000+. Great guy! Highly recommended!
Im thankful to know there are still good hearted people in this world, Mark being one of them! This gentleman just spent 30 minutes on the phone with me giving advice that I never would have thought of without his absolute expertise and experience. He is a true professional with the knowledge and past experience that he has been through during his career. He truly cared about my health and more importantly different avenues to pursue. Without any doubt, I would be more than happy to pay him for his services. If you're having any type of air quality issues or mold don't waste your time with anyone else! Thanks again Mark for all your help and guidance!
I highly recommend Marc and AMT for your mold testing. Marc went above and beyond to ensure I felt comfortable with the inspection and results, even making observations that are beyond a typical mold inspection. He has deep expertise but does a great job breaking it down for his customers to understand. If you are purchasing a home or have mold concerns on your current home, I HIGHLY recommend you give Marc a call. You will not regret it.
I was under contract to purchase a home when the home inspection identified a potential mold issue. Due to the tight deadline I needed a Mold testing expert to come and perform testing asap. I called Marc from AMT in the morning and he was out to the house before lunchtime. His knowledge and experience is very impressive. He explained the testing process and various options for remediation. He was prompt, responsible, knowledgeable and delivered the promise to get me the final results of the test in time to meet my deadline.
Marc, thank you so much for accommodating my request on such short notice and providing a truly professional service with you expertise. Your final report was very detailed and professional. You saved me a lot of grief, headache and money. Thank you!
I wish I could have given my money to him because he was very helpful and professional over the phone. However, he was not located in my area. Exceptional customer service!
Nothing is more important than my family's health. When we decided to check our home for any mold, it was an easy decision to go with AMT Mold Testing and Indoor Air Quality Consulting. Setting up an appointment was easy, and Mark is an expert in this area. His preliminary and full reports were VERY informative and gave us the information we needed to know to remain healthy and have confidence in our living space. I would not hesitate to recommend Mark and AMT to anyone considering testing the indoor air quality of their home.
Had a wonderful experience with this company. Professional, educational and very reliable. Would recommend to anyone!
I called Marc because we had roof and window leak problems for several years and my wife has respiratory issues. Marc responded quickly told us what he would do and gave us the price. Marc showed up for the appointment on time and we got a preliminary report quickly and the full report a few days later. Fortunately we had no serious issues to deal with which put us at ease. I would highly recommend Marc for anyone who may even have a small concern regarding mold.
I needed my home tested for mold and AMT scheduled me promptly. Marc was a pleasure to work with, answered all of my questions, was thorough and knowledgeable. The initial report come through promptly with the information that I needed to move forward. The report included helpful explanations and details. I highly recommend AMT Mold Testing.
Called Marc because we thought we may have had an Air quality problem in our home.We were not sure if we had a mold problem as well. Marc was away when I called however I left a message and was called back promptly. Marc came to my home as he promised and completed a very extensive inspection crawling through out attic and moving items in our basement. He conducted an air quality test on each floor and photographed his work.The report followed and was filled with suggestions on preventative methods and the good news that we didn't have a problem that needed any remediation. Thanks Marc for a great job at a reasonable price. I highly recommend your company to anyone looking for an honest and responsible job.
AMT mold consulting was contacted due to possible mold issues in my unit. Marc, a certified indoor environmentalist promptly came out the following day to conduct the examination/sampling to determine the presence of mold. He checked the entire unit for water damage, visual mold growth, moisture in the walls, as well as musty odors. State of the art moisture meter was used to check the walls and air flow meter to trap mold spores present in the air. He answered all my questions in great detail in a friendly personable manner. Following the visit I received the lab report as well as a nine page written report providing detailed description of the tests that were conducted, analyses and recommendations on how to take care of problems. My experiences with AMT can only be described as very positive. I would highly recommend this company to anyone with mold concerns in their house.
Marc Leftwich is a professional - very competent, patient and thorough. Marc was recommended by both our home inspector and realtor after we observed numerous conditions for mold to grow. He arrived early and was prepared to discuss our observations and his plan. He completed a physical review of the entire home from the back of the crawl space to the tip of the attic. I accompanied him and he clearly explained what he saw. He identified several items that were beyond the scope of the general inspector and I learned how to prevent future mold growth after the home is cleaned. Those items go beyond the standard humidifier and preventing water intrusion. I strongly recommend his services for any home. The cost is very appropriate for its benefits.
Marc from AMT came out to do a routine check on a small area in the house, and, as expected, everything went quickly and well. I enjoyed talking with Marc as his manner is professional yet friendly and personable, not to mention he is professional, thorough and exacting in his work. I never thought I'd speak so highly of the Mold Man!
Marc did an excellent job. Very professional and thorough. I would recommend AMT and Marc to anyone.
I can't say enough good things about our experience with Marc and AMT. We had very long road with pervasive water damage, two (bad) remediation companies and months having passed with little progress. Marc provided counsel to us that was instrumental in righting our house and finally getting us on the road to repairing our home. We are eternally grateful to him. Our home is 200+ years old, historical and is constructed in a unique way with lots of stone, post and beam etc This required specific remedies and Marc's knowledge of the industry, his insights around remediation helped us fill in this gap with the right solution. Marc is instantly likable, a true professional who will treat both you and your home with diligence and care. I met Marc in November and we are now in late February with Marc next to us for this very long journey of one issue after the next. We are happy to be at the end of the long road and are happy to call Marc a friend at this point as well.
The representative handling our situation was very responsive and informative. Highly recommended!
Called AMT and Marc got back to me right away with his prices and 2 days later he was at my house doing his testing. Less than a week later i had my results and a report! If you need some testing go him, he's awesome and super helpful!
Marc does a great job and is very knowledgeable. He helped me a lot and I would recommend him to anyone.
Marc was GREAT! He was prompt and thorough in checking the property. He is knowledgeable and very professional. We are very happy with his service. We will recommend to everyone. Thank you for all your help and expertise.
AMT Mold Testing is a homerun. No need to call any other place. Marc was informative on the phone about what would take place when he came out. He was able to schedule the appointment to work with my schedule and was on time. He was very knowledgeable and helped explain things in a simplistic way for anyone to understand. Reports were sent back also in a timely manner. You will not be disappointed by hiring AMT Mold Testing.
Our company had a great experience with AMT mold testing. Marc was informative and very professional. We received our report in a timely manor and prior to his exit he had already addressed the issues he found. Highly recommend!!!!
Marc took the time to talk with me over the phone for awhile even before setting up an appointment, which I thought was going above and beyond what another professional might have done. I was surprised by his level of knowledge with mold and familiarity with ERMI testing, which I had completed prior to contacting him. We had a good discussion, then about a week later I scheduled an appointment.
He was very thorough while he was here and helped the landlord and I understand why there are mold problems in the house. During the walk through he made several suggestions on how to reduce moisture and increase ventilation. So I'm very pleased with the service, thank you Marc.
Marc was incredibly knowledgeable, personable, and thorough. He took the time to explain things at a level understandable to a laymen and clearly has a wealth of knowledge and experience.
I contacted AMT seeking an air quality test for a home I considered purchasing. The house was about 1000 feet from a gas station and I had concerns about potential harmful emissions getting into the house. I had spoken with several agencies about the testing process and I had heard a variety of prices (everything from $500 to $1200), and procedures for testing the air for three hours to twenty-three hours. Honestly, my head was spinning. When I spoke with Marc at AMT, however, he was honest, upfront, and professional. He explained the limits of the testing and explained that based on my circumstances, he was not 100% certain that an air quality test would be able to accurately provide the information I was seeking within the time frame I was working with. He also located some articles for me about NIH research into the matter and suggested that I reach out to the EPA and a few other environmental agencies to get a better sense of safety guidelines. How about that friends? He could have taken me for a lot of money, but instead, he had integrity and was a true professional. Based on this, I would highly recommend AMT. This is a business you can trust and Marc has deep knowledge on the subject of air quality testing. You will not find better.
Above and beyond service. In addition to mold testing, Marc helped me determine the likely root cause of the issues and provided guidance on remediation. He was honest and open about what could be addresses with simple fixes, such as proper ventilation, and what needed remediation. I recently had Marc come back to retest and verify that the issues were corrected. I highly recommend AMT.
AMT was thorough, unobtrusive, meticulous, and very diligent. I would highly recommend them!
Very thorough and congenial. Very knowledgeable about the service provided and helpful with recommendations for the next step. Would definitely recommend for the service of testing for molds in the home.
Very knowledgeable in his field and offered many solutions to better the air quality in my home! Would highly recommend Marc!
Fantastic service!! Thank you Marc for always being so professional and so easy to work with through the years. I owned a water damage/ mold clean up business for over 12 years and just felt compelled to write a review for this company. I worked with countless mold testing companies, hygienist, and consultants through the years and would just like to say AMT was the best. Always had a positive experience with all the technicians that came out to work with us as well as the owners of course. Thank you again Marc!!
Marc was incredibly knowledgable and spent time educating my husband and me on the testing and mold issues we experienced in our basement. We both very much appreciated his patience and time. Highly recommend AMT and Marc. True professional!
Marc provided a mold evaluation and air testing for our upcoming home purchase. We we extremely satisfied with his service. He was very quick to respond to inquiries and did an excellent job with the inspection and report. We would undoubtedly recommend his services to others.
In addition to completing the mold testing, Marc was knowledgeable, informative and provided clear, easy to understand explanations about the testing process, air quality measures and why both are important. We had little knowledge of mold and its potential impact on the air quality and safety in our home. Marc provided thorough explanations to all of our questions which enabled us to understand the air quality report we received from AMT, necessary next steps for mold remediation and what was necessary to improve the air quality in our home. He was also very patient in working with us as we worked with our insurance company. Email and phone communications were also very professional.
As a real estate agent, and owner of multiple properties, I highly recommend Marc to anyone considering a home purchase. He is the first person I call for inspections. My home inspector finds the information imperative as well for doing his own inspection. Never start a project without completing this very important step. Marc does not simply open test jars, he searches out moisture, water intrusion points, plumbing leaks, anything that could potentially be a problem now or in the future. If water is your homes greatest enemy, Marc is your homes super hero! Big thank you to Marc for his outstanding work with my next big project!!! He saved me tons on the front end of the transaction and made sure my kids stayed healthy and safe during our new home adventure.
Marc is very knowledgable and handled my case in a way that speaks volumes to his individualized approach. He assessed the property and determined the right tests to perform in order to provide an honest real-time evaluation of the mold spore conditions present. He also took a lot of time to review the history and present conditions of the property and then to explain the basis of his test recommendations so that we were comfortable and confident in his approach before he even started. He was also very considerate of the costs and kept it within our budget, while providing all of the necessary information to resolve the problems. He carefully performed the tests and got the results back and wrote a report within 3 days. We are now confident in what we need to do in order to make the house livable again for my mom who has asthma. Very satisfied with AMT and would highly recommend him to anyone who want honest results from someone who is clearly an expert in the industry.
Marc was so helpful with my situation. He even rearranged his schedule to fit me in. I was so thankful for his honesty, professionalism and just overall excellent service. I definitely recommend AMT Mold for anyone who is in need of this kind of service. First Rate!!!
Marc was so patient and professional. He answered all of my questions and explained everything so well. He is very well informed and knows his stuff. I'm thankful for all Marc has done for us in such a tough time.
