Mold can be present anywhere, in any type of home, office, or building. Often the occupants don’t know they have a mold problem, and are suffering serious health consequences. That’s why mold testing is so important. SIS is a mold testing company that services the tri-state area. We provide mold testing for homes and businesses.
