"We inspect every home as if we were moving in our own family."
Santa Rosa, California (PRWEB) November 30, 2015
Steve Zivolich, the owner and senior inspector of Guaranteed Property and Mold Inspections (GPI) serving Sonoma, Marin, Napa, Orange, Los Angeles, and Riverside Counties in California, has marked his 18th year in business.
Zivolich holds the premier nationally accredited certification for home inspectors by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). He is also certified as a residential home inspector by the California Real Estate Inspectors Association (CREIA). In addition, he is nationally certified in Mold, Microbial, Asbestos, Lead Paint, Indoor Air Quality, Energy Conservation and Radon inspections/testing.
Steve serves on the national certification board of directors for the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC), which reviews applications for new mold inspectors to be awarded a nationally accredited certification. These unique certifications require both knowledge verification in the science of microbial inspection, but also extensive experience in the field.
Due to his extensive training and experience, his firm is able to provide additional mold, environmental, and energy expertise with a residential home inspection at no additional cost to clients.
"We inspect every home as if we were moving in our own family," stated Zivolich.
Unlike other mold inspection companies, GPI does not try to up-sell its clients with unneeded mold testing. Currently the EPA and the California Department of Public Health discourage such mold testing. Further, since it is a conflict of interest, GPI only inspects, and does not remediate mold, this avoids a financial bias in their findings. It is also a code of ethics violation for a company to both inspect and remediate mold conditions. As a result, GPI holds the highest ratings by the BBB, Angie's List, and Yelp.
Steve has completed over 7,000 home and mold inspections for pre-listing, time of purchase, post-purchase investigations, as well as expert witness testimony.
He is currently providing Mold Inspection seminars throughout the state for real estate professionals, and code enforcement city government inspectors to assist with implementation of the new California Mold law SB 655, which is taking effect on January 1, 2016.
