He definitely has the big picture. Rick starts by listening to your concerns, followed by a detailed inspection to identify problem areas. After identification, Rick takes the time to thouroughly explain everything, and then articulates solutions to remediate the problems. He can recommend a contractor, or will work with your contractor, to insure all remediation is done correctly. Rick is a great professional. He is prompt, thorough, extremely knowledgable, and accessible, but most importantly he truly cares about his clients. I highly recommend him.
Rick gave us invaluable information on how to address a leak situation in a much more cost-effective manner than excavating the foundation, which another company recommended. His common sense recommendations worked great, and cost a fraction of what we were being quoted. Wish I'd had him do the initial inspection of the house, he is very thorough and detail-oriented, and completely objective. His reasonable fee saved us thousands of dollars and a lot of time.

About me

** We come to you. Please call for quote (see below) **

I have been involved with helping folks discover exactly what "Home Healthiness" is for over two decades. I have studied issues that can cause a home to be sick, and thereby cause people to suffer needlessly, as often there are problems in the home which cause a variety of symptoms. It's not "in your head." Sick House Syndrome isn't imaginary.

What we do: Our most inclusive package: *In-person thorough investigation of your property, up to 4 hours * Identification of toxins, allergens, mold, radon components * Photo documentation & written report * 8-point House Healthiness grades * Cost-effective suggestions to remediate issues * For 30 days, weekly calls to discuss the progress * Radon sample packet ** Free Hygrometer to measure and monitor humidity ** Primarily serving NC, SC, TN, VA and GA; available for travel.

Other plans and services are available.

My Philosophy of Care

We approach your home as a living ecosystem. After 35 years of experience, I look beyond the surface, and assess the symptoms of problems and identify root issues. My goal is to offer individuals and families workable solutions for prevention, intervention, and control of situations that may occur in their homes, which impact health. And, if there has been a diagnosis, you home’s ability to support optimum wellness is critical to the challenges ahead.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

Each situation and every home is, of course, unique. We begin by investigating what conditions exist, inside and out. Working one on one, we'll review health related issues ie allergies, itchy skin, headaches, health stressors you or family members experience. Sick House Syndrome is real. Rick will offer you a comprehensive plan of attack, which could save you hundreds of dollars and time. At your request, we also collaborate with caregivers and medical teams to ensure best results.

My Inspiration

I want to help people understand their "stuff." When things are not working, when things get dirty, ineffective, off-kilter, and it's a spiral. Nothing gives me more pleasure, then when fortunately, we can find these things, fix them, get the house to support health and control the situations. Get on with life! Wouldn't you rather be enjoying family and friends rather than having to fighting these home health issues?
