It is important that you hire a company qualified to get the job done right the first time. Just because they advertise that they are experts, does not mean they are qualified. Mold inspectors and mold technicians should be properly equipped with the appropriate tools, skills, knowledge, and certifications. Make sure they are licensed as New Jersey Home Improvement Contractors. The state of New Jersey REQUIRES every mold remediation company to be licensed as New Jersey Home Improvement Contractors and carry the proper general liability insurance AND pollutant insurance. Every mold professional should be able to provide you with their NJ HIC Lic.# and insurance certificates upon request.
