Great service and product. John did a smoke remediation on a vehicle for me and it turned out great. My customer was extremely impressed with the outcome. Highly recommended!!

John has been a professional in his industry for many years and I was one of his first customers when he decided to start his own business. His first job was to see if he could save my late father’s violin. Not only was it old, but it also had significant mold on it and a horrible odor from being stored in an area that had some water accumulation that no one knew about. I thought it was hopeless but John did not. He was pretty confident he could save my dad’s violin and he did! I cried so much and still do when I think of it. Since that first job for me, I have had him come on a proactive basis to check areas to make sure mold doesn’t appear. Mold has become an epidemic of its own in our country and contributes to so many illnesses. Being in the alternative health business, I am well aware of the damage mold can do to our bodies. So much is still unknown. John is professional and will do what is best for you. Selling his service is secondary. Solving your mold and odor issues are his first priority. He is a businessman you can trust. In one instance I thought I needed to do something and he told me it wasn’t necessary which saved me money. I know he has done that with many other customers as well. His priority is you; not his wallet. Be proactive and have John come to your business or your residence to take care of any odor issues and to make sure mold does not affect you, your business, your employees or your family. I highly recommend Break the Mold, LLC.
