Home and Business Owners Breathe Easy With SMS Environmental Cleaning

By Pamela Sosnowski

While being a homeowner is rewarding, it also comes with its own set of challenges, particularly when a home's air quality becomes compromised by mold, pollutants, and more. For 30 years, residential and commercial customers throughout Eastern Massachusetts have depended upon Medway-based SMS Indoor Environmental Cleaning, Inc. to respond to all their Indoor Air Quality concerns.

"(We are) locally owned and operated and most of our business is through referrals, particularly for real estate transactions," the company's president and owner, Steve Timpany, said. "We specialize in mold remediation, water damage restoration, air duct cleaning, HVAC maintenance, and dryer vent cleaning. We are the good guys; we have a stellar safety record, we follow established protocols, are honest, and you can talk directly to the owner."

Timpany says that indoor air quality is often overlooked until the unseen contaminants, like mold, start causing noticeable problems such as odors irritated eyes, nose, and throat. It's particularly important for New Englanders to pay attention to their building's air quality since many homes get sealed up during the winter and summer months while the heat or A/C runs.

"Most home heating (or AC) systems do not bring in fresh air, but recirculate the existing air over and over," he said. "It is easy to see that any irritants or contaminants in your home could be spread throughout the home potentially making the situation worse. Higher temperatures and humidity can also increase the concentration of mold and other pollutants."

The company can also help prevent problems before they start, such as drying out a home or building after it has experienced flood or water damage. SMS certified technicians can perform all of the remedial activities necessary while following proper industry protocols, including testing services, removal of damaged and contaminated building materials and rebuild.

Timpany and his staff work closely with many brokers and real estate companies to help clean up a residence before it is sold to new owners.

"We are an integral part of real estate transactions, helping the buyer or seller and real estate agent get to closing by remediating noted mold growth, providing a closure report, and offering a three year warranty," he said. "We have saved many deals and are trusted by the real estate community."

SMS Indoor Environmental Cleaning, Inc. is fully licensed to provide its services, including pesticide and fungicide applications, in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Timpany is a NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) certified air systems cleaning specialist and a member of several industry organizations and actively participates in committees and continuing education. The company provides free estimates, responds to calls promptly, and can usually see a customer on the same day as receiving a request.
