Kurt and his team arrived on time, were very professional, and they even vacuumed up after them selves. We discovered that the work needed was more extensive than when he came out to give me an estimate, and he was very fair in the additional amount he charged. They completed everything in a day, and took care to dry out part of my attic, which they didn't have to do.

Friendly, honest service. The evaluation was done by the owner of the business, and he spent a lot of time explaining and talking to me both during the evaluation and when the results were given to us. Would recommend to anyone who is nervous about mold in their home. more »

From proposal to job completion, American Home Services was a pleasure to deal with. Kurt And his team were extremely thorough in the job they did. They were careful to protect the furniture and other belongings in our basement as they went about the work. Kurt was on site to make sure that things were done according to his high standards. Upon final inspection, we discovered that a length of cable connecting our TV to Comcast was missing. Kurt, on his own time and with his own money, bought a new cable, brought it to our house and even insisted on ensuring that the cable TV service was working properly before he left. If you are unlucky enough to have mold problems, you won't find a better company than American Home Services to fix it. I can wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone needing mold remediation services. more »

I just moved into a home that sat empty with a water leak for three years, and it was absolutely horrid with mold. Luckily for me, I was referred to Kurt Randall of American Home Services.
I can
't even begin to properly convey what an awesome job Kurt and his team did. He patiently explained the entire process and answered my endless questions every step of the way. My father and I nearly broke ourselves slowly hauling material out of the house for weeks before we finally gave up and brought Kurt in; he and his guys had everything out in a day. Of course the place was still downright filthy and the air full of mold spores, but within a few days Kurt and his crew had every surface sparkling clean and the air smelling as pure as a mountain breeze. It's like the mold was never there.
On top of all that, he managed to beat every other remediation estimate I received. I got so much bang for my buck that it almost feels wrong not to send some business his way. So if you need mold remediation, do yourself a favor, and give American Home Services a call.

With over 40 years in the real estate business and having been honored with Century 21's President's Club Hall of Fame, their highest award and National Association of Realtors, RPAC Hall of Fame, most people would consider me a real estate expert. I think American Home Services is the best company I have had actual experience with in the mold remediation business and it is the best company I have ever heard about in the mold remediation business. I have used them at least 8 or 9 times and was always satisfied and happy the first time they did the job. I never remember them not getting a passing grade from my independent testing lab. In the beginning I got other quotes and their scope of work was always professional and complete. There competitors scope of work was sometimes lacking according to knowledgeable experts I had compare the quotes. I have always been happy with the prices and thought they were fair. I have never been "surprised" by additional work which is a contractors ploy for more money. I highly recommend American Home Services. Tom Earnest more »

"The entire house must undergo mold remediation" are scary words to hear from the bank before you can close on a house. Everything I read online on the subject made it clear that careful consideration needs to be given in selecting the firm you hire for the job. Meeting at the home with Kurt Randell of American Home Services was an educational and confidence building experience. He took as much time as I needed to understand how mold takes hold, grows and the difficulties in getting rid of it. The home was such a great deal that the investment to cure the problem was worth it. A written review cannot adequately convey the extent of the transformation. The cleanliness of the finished process removed all concerns about a once mold infested home. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family and friends. more »

We originally found AMS via Angie's List, and the owner came out very quickly to do a free inspection and talk to use about everything he was seeing -- high potential for mold within the walls of the shower, and other possible areas (on drywall of opposite side of walls, floor, etc.) He showed us all readings on the tools he was using, talked to us in detail about what he recommended -- namely, complete destruction of the tile-walled shower due to multiple instances of bad grout (old shower) and the resultant mold problem within the walls as well as on the floor of the shower. He also recommended some touch-up painting with anti-mold paints where water spotting occurred on our main level ceiling, rather than a more complex/expensive and in his view unnecessary ceiling patch. His crew was excellent, keeping things very clean and on schedule and luckily no major issues were found besides demolishing just the existing shower and raising up the old linoleum flooring followed by completely painting all exposed areas with Aftershock anti-mold primer paint to minimize problems in the future. He stayed at the estimate of about $3K for this work as agreed. (I eventually put in a new shower and floor myself.) For his second visit, he came out for another free inspection of some mold exposed in a main level bathroom ceiling when some plaster that had been wet down a few years ago when doing some cleaning broke away. This was a very small mold spot, and had a companion of some other mold shadowed behind wallpaper. AMS did another free inspection of this problem for me today, and advised that it was something I could definitely handle myself - ceiling and walls were bone-dry all around the area and it would be simple to just remove a patch of the wallpaper (which we plan to remove in this room anyway), scrub the mold with appropriate cleaner, re-plaster the small area of the ceiling that would need it, and then paint with Aftershock primer paint. He even gave me recommendations on places to get all my materials, including the brush I would need to match the existing ceiling texture. Even when I offered to pay for the inspection, he refused -- just asked me to write up a couple reviews, which I'm happy to do. I'm the type of person that likes to find high-quality businesses to form relationships with. As much as no one wants to use a mold remediation service, I would definitely call AMS again if I need to.
I've used American Home Services twice, and I'm writing this review after the second time I've used them. About 2-3 years ago, we had water dripping to our main level ceiling from a second floor bathroom. Cause of the leak was busted grout in a tile shower. AMS helped us remediate the resultant mold problem (more below). Just today, I had AMS come out to take a look at another small spot of mold to make sure it wasn't an indicator of another major issue - luckily it wasn't. Again, more below.

I dealt directly with Mr. Kurt Randall. What a class act. He and his call center/staff are just amazing people and understand the definition of GOOD customer service and complimented that with solid work. He expedited the whole process which helped reduce the stress from an already very stressful environment. Very professional, informative, and prices were fair but I didn't feel ripped of given the urgency and the excellent service and work delivered.

Great. American Home Services came with excellent references. They provided a reasonable quote promptly and were able to quickly come help us with our problem. They performed the service as described on time and for the quoted price. Their crew was very professional and the owner was on the job. They gave us a lot of confidence that the job was being done correctly the first time. It is the only time that I have been given a material safety data sheet for work being done at my home. I highly recommend this company as they fixed our problem the first time.

Overall they did a wonderful job. They went above and beyond to explain why the issues with mold were accruing and helped us come up with a plan to make sure it doesn't happen again. They performed extra work and didn't charge us for it.

Great job. Staff was very knowledgeable and professional. Provided photos of the work done, so I didn't have to crawl under the house to check it out. I would not hesitate to recommend this company.

Kurt was extremely knowledgable and helpful. I had received several conflicting opinions from other companies. After fully examining the attic, Kurt was able to explain that the principal problem was high humidity levels in the attic. He laid out several solutions to the problem, all of which can be accomplished easily and inexpensively. Kurt spent approximately 90 minutes checking out the problem and made every effort to explain my options. Others had suggested very expensive solutions. Kurt solved the problem without resort to extreme, unnecessary, and expensive measures.
I needed an opinion on air quality conditions in my attic due to a recurring mold problem.

Discovering that my home was compromised by a neighbor's sump pump was disturbing to say the least! After my experience with American Home Services (AHS), I am happy to refer this service provider to anyone with mold or other environmental contaminants. From an initial fact-finding meeting through the remediation process to a final follow-up text message, Kurt Randall, CEO and the AHS team provided professional, thorough and courteous service! I hope I never need this type of work done again, but if so, AHS is it! more »
