When he himself was faced with mold issues within his home, he became frustrated looking for solutions that did not involve toxic contaminants or those that only masked the condition, instead of truly fixing it. With his prior knowledge of being a lead project manager with GreenWorks Environmental, he decided to take the leap and open his own business. He was determined to create a company that worked hand in hand with his own values of trust and honesty to make people feel better. Gary is extremely passionate about helping others improve their health within their home, give them an affordable outlet, and most importantly educate them on small improvements for yearly maintenance.
