MOLD & MOISTURE ISSUES IN BUILDINGS

LEARN THE UNDERLYING CAUSES

In this introductory course, I'm going to share the crucial fundamentals of moisture. PLUS the TOP 10 BUILDING DEFECTS that typically lead to MOLD & SEVERE MOISTURE DAMAGE.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

To Create & Maintain A Mold-Free Home



There are many, many companies out there selling 

VERY EXPENSIVE "Solutions" to mold. 


You CAN spend a LOT of money trying all these solutions. 


I have too!


The truth is, no bandaid solution is going to 

take care of your mold problem. 


There's always an underlying reason WHY it's there. 


If you don't take care of that underlying cause, 

the mold will come back.


No matter what you put over it, encapsulate it with, or spray over it.

REVIEWS & TESTIMONIALS

I would highly recommend reading through Cheryl‘s website as well as purchasing her videos. I have been looking at real estate in Boston and there are an overwhelming number of water-damaged properties that I have seen. It’s so helpful to have someone point out potential problems, as well as to address what is fixable… And what is not.

Cheryl Ciecko is the real deal! Detailed & Excellence combined...nothing like a woman taking on the architectural field with purpose! I'm a CIRS survivor and l look to her posts for guidance on building structures for mold prevention.

Lots of information from a unique vantage point that is not offered anywhere else.
