    Charles was invaluable to our project. We called him before starting a renovation because we live in an old house and wanted to make sure there was not asbestos in the walls before tearing them down. He took asbestos samples and luckily there was no asbestos. However, when he was here, he noticed mold all along the floor edges in the sunroom. He took samples of the mold and the air. He also suspected mold in the air handler to our HVAC. He was extremely thorough in his inspection of our home. Sure enough, there was mold present. He helped us find a mold remediation expert and supervised the job. When the mold remediator was finished, Charles found a spot that they missed so was able to facilitate bringing the remediator back to complete the job. Charles goes above and beyond in terms of his availability, his involvement throughout the job, his willingness to provide advice and his help in working with contractors. He is extremely knowledgeable. In addition to the above work, he is now helping us with post renovation cleanup. Our general contractor removed fiberglass insulation without proper precautions, so our entire upstairs is covered in fiberglass dust. Charles helped refer us to an appropriate cleanup service and he devised a work plan that will keep us all safe during cleanup. I can't say enough about Charles's professionalism, devotion to his job, generosity with his time and his expertise

    Very professional and knowledgeable about mold as well as the overall inspection of the area. This company did an amazing job locating the source of the problem and provided detailed step by step plans to help remove and remediate the mold. Charles is wonderful to work with, he was patient and went over the report with us in full detail. We will definitely use them again in the future

    We could not be happier with Charles Schwartz and Environmental Assessment & Solutions. We had a sudden severe mold outbreak from a leak in the boiler that caused serious damage to our basement. Charles was on scene within several hours, and was able to locate and stop the leak himself. He was highly organized, professional, and efficient and got the air testing and repair process underway in lightning time. As someone on chemotherapy to whom mold is potentially dangerous, I especially appreciated his professional background in health services. He always did what he said he was going to do, when he said it was going to be done. He saw us through every step of the process. Not only did he perform all services to our great satisfaction, he also seemed to genuinely care about our well being. This was a major crisis for our household, and we feel very grateful that we found such a consummate and experienced professional to help us navigate the process from beginning to end. Would highly recommend Charles and Environmental Assessment & Solutions to everyone

    I am a mother of three young children. My husband and I recently bought a “new” (200-year-old) farmhouse that we fell completely in love with. We had a home inspection performed which told us that asbestos was likely found, but we needed further clarification. The home inspection also found evidence of mold in the basement crawlspace. I soon called a specialist (he also performed lead inspections) who expressed much further concerns with potential lead due to the age of the home and the ages of my children. He came out to my home with a “lead gun” (I’m sure there is a formal name for that) and left me with a report that was very scary and daunting. “Where do I go next?” - was the question I asked myself late at night trying to figure out a strategy. I spent the next several weeks calling asbestos, lead, and mold contractors. It was extremely overwhelming and I felt way in over my head. My youngest son suffers from asthma, allergies, and a heart condition – so making sure our home was safe BEFORE we moved in has always been the priority. I was getting nowhere and more and more confused with different vendors coming out to our “new” home and providing all different options that left my head spinning. I almost gave up, and then I found Charles. Charles is so much more than I can even express in words. He truly cares, he’s meticulous, he’s knowledgeable, he’s informative, and he’s passionate. The first time he came out to our home he did baseline testing to break down for us where everything was at its current state. This was extremely helpful in proving that the remediation experts indeed made the problem much better instead of making it worse. Please be careful that there are many remediation companies out there that perform their own testing themselves AFTER their job has been completed. The tests are nowhere near as specific as what Charles performs. Charles put everything into perspective for me and took the time to actually teach me about all of the tests that he would be performing and why they are specific and important in determining the baseline. We spent hours together on the first visit. He took the time with me to go through the entire house and provide his own visual inspection AND even help me start the project planning process in accordance with my very tight 5-week timeframe. I can still recall driving home that evening and finally feeling a sense of accomplishment and ease that I was now in the right hands and we would be getting the proper guidance in this journey towards make our home safe for our family. Charles is extremely responsive and hard-working. I swear the guy works around the clock and never stops! It’s so appreciated when you’re under such time constraints and need answers and planning. There is never any hesitation with him. We began the project planning together and I started bringing in vendors to evaluate the scope of the work and keep us on our timeline. He was always one step ahead – creating detailed reports / scope of work and very specific details even down to the exact make / model / size of the dehumidifier that should be utilized after the mold remediation was completed in our crawlspace. Now let’s talk about his inspections – where do I start. If you’re looking for someone to cut corners or turn a blind eye, Charles is NOT for you. If you do indeed want to feel confident in the fact that the contractor that you hired performed their job sufficiently and remediated all underlying issues than Charles IS the guy for you. Charles left no stone unturned in checking the work of my contractors and that is an understatement. Our initial Mold / Asbestos Remediation team provided me with a certificate of completion and “tests” showing that the issues were resolved. The asbestos immediately failed the visual inspection from Charles and the air quality test for mold showed that the levels actually increased after uncovering more mold during the remediation and not treating properly. They came back a second time and passed the asbestos test, but the testing from Charles indicated that the mold worsened yet again. Charles worked with me to hire a new Mold Remediation team with more experience in this arena. Charles spoke with the Project Manager throughout the scope of the remediation which lasted four days and as a result, all mold was remediated and all air quality tests were phenomenal. The due-diligence did not stop here. Charles worked directly with my lead cleanup team to organize when he would be performing his testing after their work was completed. He took all of the weight off my shoulders which allowed me to focus on other parts of the project and prepare for our move. Finally, Charles worked with my environmental company who performed our duct cleaning after everything else was completed. Due to negligence, Charles had failed the visual inspection three times before bringing another company in to perform the job adequately and to professional standards. Without Charles, I would have been naive to have assumed that the job was completed properly and would have exposed my son with lung and heart problems to filthy air coming from ducts that were not properly cleaned and most likely would have triggered an asthma attack. I kept asking myself throughout this process – “how many innocent families trust that the work they are having done by professionals is being done properly and to the highest standards?”. We as consumers trust in the fact that contractors come to do their jobs properly (and I’m sure many do!), but that was NOT the case for us and we NEVER would have been privy to this if it wasn’t for Charles. It’s been an adventure, but one I would do over again with him by our side. In retrospect, we honestly NEVER could have done this without Charles – he is so much more than a health inspector. At this point in time and after all we’ve been through, I’d much rather call him a friend! There is nobody else out there like him and trust me – I’ve done the research and spent the countless hours looking for someone like him (before actually finding him). I now feel confident in the decision that we made to purchase our “new” farmhouse and are looking forward to many, many years of health and happiness in our safe home with Charles ultimately being the main reason for this

    Andy was easy to reach, quick to make an appointment, and arrived as planned. He spent 3.5 hours with us, going through every nook of our house, explaining stuff and answering questions. (This was a maintenance inspection, to help us plan our next round of repair and improvement projects.) His report was really detailed yet easy to understand and act on. We followed up with a conversation to answer a couple questions and get recommendations. All in all, a wonderful experience--so glad we did it and hope to do it again every 5 years or so

    My realtor Rupa Kale of Berkshire Hathaway New Providence recommend Stirling Environmental to us . We had a 550 gal decommissioned tank that needed to be removed before the closing of our home. Nick was super nice , efficient and answered all my questions about the process. He explained in detail of what the process and protocol was for the removal. They even filed for our permit which was approved in days ( a miracle for our town) I was contacted to make our removal appointment…. The men showed up 10 minutes early ( 8:30 am)and had the job done by 11am( super nice guys 👍🏼👍🏼), the town inspection was scheduled ahead of time and it was approved by 11:30 am!! Needless to say we were thrilled with the entire experience! THANK YOU NICK and the whole crew at Stirling environmental !! I forgot to mention that the men dug out and replanted my mature landscape when finished. My landscaper didn’t even realize we had the work done :

    Right off the bat, Andy was incredible. He took a significant amount of time after normal business hours to talk with me about the process and everything that we would do before I scheduled an appointment. He was prompt, professional and extremely friendly. He was incredibly thorough and knowledgeable in all facets of home construction, plumbing, heating, air conditioning and much much more. Andy spent time explaining how everything works, walked me through some building code/best practices, issues that he noticed and how/when to have them fixed, improvements that could be made, how to maintain everything properly and also things to look out for in the future. He took time to answer all of my questions and made sure I understood everything. His inspection report was turned around very quickly. The report was extremely detailed and well put together with photos, operational diagrams, recommendations and even some links to ‘odds and ends’ parts that we would need. He also included maintenance tips and suggestions with timelines. As a first time home buyer or for any home buyer/owner for that matter, I could not recommended Andy and Poseidon Home Inspection highly enough. He is the best. Thank you so much again!
