William Powers started Powers Environmental LLC in Connecticut in 2007 as a mold inspection service. Ten years later, Powers Environmental LLC is doing mold testing and indoor air quality assessments throughout the greater Hudson Valley area. The company employs 5 people and has offices in Connecticut, Montgomery NY and Paramus NJ.
Mr. Powers tells us, “When we started the business ten years ago there were very few third-party mold testing services in the tri-state area. Little did we know that a few years later the law would require licensed and certified third party mold assessment companies to perform mold testing before remediation work can begin.”
In the past, a mold remediation company could perform their own mold inspections. However, New York recognized that this conflict of interest was causing abuses of homeowners in the state. While not all remediation companies are unscrupulous, having an independent assessment of the situation can prevent an unwary consumer from being taken advantage of.
A mold remediation company may be able to recognize if you have visual evidence of mold in your home, but what about hidden mold? Why did the mold happen in the first place? How extensive is the problem? With specialized instruments and the experience of thousands of mold assessment projects, Powers Environmental LLC’s certified inspectors can locate even hidden mold and determine proper corrective steps.
Mr. Powers continues, “Our third-party inspections provide a much needed service in the tri-state area. We supply homeowners with a non-biased report of their indoor environment and air quality. Our interest is in containing costs by directing that only the work necessary to address the mold problem is performed.”
He continues, “We also help our clients understand how they can avoid a future mold problem.”
