A few months ago my sister bought a 15 year old house. Upon moving in we noticed mold in different rooms. Catstrong helped us to remove the mold in addition to work with the insurance provider company even though we were still unboxing! Catstrong is the most caring firm I've ever dealt with and truly desires to aid folks in times of panic.
