Team Soil-Away would like to congratulate Lead Technician, Mike Nudd, on obtaining certifications for air duct cleaning and mold remediation. After days of studying, training, and testing through the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), Mike achieved two certifications.

Selling a home always comes with challenges. Challenges can be multiplied when dealing with issues such as structural failures, out of code utilities, mold, or odor. To some, odor may pale in comparison to the expensive structural repairs or mold remediation. Nevertheless, odor removal can serve as a serious obstacle to overcome during a real estate transaction.

The big family reunion was just two days away. It was an annual event and this year it was being hosted in Plymouth. A lot had yet to be done before extended family arrived and took over the property. Groceries had to be purchased, towels had to be stocked, and the lawn needed to be mowed. The list seemed endless.

A frustrated father whips his sopping wet sneakers across the back yard of his Salem house. He was in the middle of an emergency water damage cleanup situation at his house. The finished basement had an inch of water throughout. The place was a flooded mess. How did this happen? What can be done to mitigate the water damage?

The tree-lines streets of Manchester’s north end were coming alive with activity. Bitter winter temperatures are now a distant memory. Once hibernating residents are emerging from their Manchester homes and ready to enjoy the warmer season. One couple goes for a walk with their two young children in tow. They cannot help but notice the numerous contractors doing work. Most of the houses in the neighborhood were built in the late-1800s and always demanded repairs. Two streets down one house is getting a new roof. The next block boasts a Victorian home receiving and updated paint job. The family stops at a friend’s house to say hi and notices a Soil-Away Air Duct Cleaning truck in the driveway.
