James Klein (Manhattan, NY)

I have lived in the same apartment in Manhattan for 5 years, and have never had any real issues. After the big rain storm that hit Manhattan a while back, I started to notice an odd smell in my apartment. I thought nothing of it until I started to see the paint bubbling on one wall. After a quick web search, I decided to have the area inspected for mold. The inspector from MI&T had a few tools that were able to identify high moisture levels for the wall and he recommended some testing. We collected a few samples, and came to find mold had begun to grow behind the wall. I was given a protocol of the required work that I had a different company perform. Once the work was done, I had MI&T come back out to inspect again. I was informed a few things were missed, and was able to get the remediator to finish the job correctly. The smell is now gone, and I feel comfortable in the integrity of my house again. If not for the expertise by these guys, my problem would have continued or even gotten worse.
