Just wanted to say hi. I'm fixing up my parents older home for rental and I've run into a plumbing issue, for which I will be seeking some help in the proper forum of this chat room.

About myself, I'm a recently retired business owner about two years). My previous business eventually focused entirely on providing structural drying and mold remediation services to mainly large commercial and institutional structures, but I also have a thirty year business career spanning carpet and upholstery cleaning, fire and smoke cleanup and structural restoration and sewage damage cleanup and restoration.

Over the years I've participated in a few of chat rooms for my various interests and I find them tremendously helpful. I've found them to be an excellent way to receive and provide help and support, as well as make new friends. While I fully expect to be more on the receiving end at first, hopefully, I'll eventually be able to give back as well. So, I'm looking forward to participating and meeting some undoubtedly interesting and good-natured folks.
Pete

Glad to have you here!

There are a lot of good folks here----and a great deal of misunderstanding about mold remediation--

I think you will be able to ask and answer as many questions as you want.---Mike---

Hi Mike,
Mold and fungi is something thing I know quite a bit about. And what I don't know I'm pretty good at faking. Seriously though, water damage is no joke and it can be very destructive and costly. I'll be glad to offer help and guidance in this area. - Pete

I sure agree on the costly part!!!

Some people just don't seem to realize that the faster the problems are fixed the less the cost----
