Our Associations & Certifications

NAMRI’s mission is as follows:

1. To advocate high Standards of Practice.
2. To enforce a sensible Code of Ethics that protects consumers while allowing the professional to disclose conflicts of interest.
3. To promote educational opportunities for mold professionals.
4. To provide professional development and networking opportunities for its members.
5. To provide the above services at a reasonable price.

A contractor who inspects and grades his own work will ace HIS TEST.

Due Diligence – Home repairs that create even a small amount of lead dust are enough to poison your child and put your family at risk.

Have AVETS, Inc. inspect your contractor’s results to ensure that he did not leave hazards behind for you to discover TOO LATE. Our report will include a narrative, recommendations and conclusions pertaining to the contractor’s adherence to EPA’s Lead-Safe guidelines.
