Bob Shupe, principal executive with Cleaner Guys in Mount Vernon, dropped by to join us for the inaugural episode of the Real Estate Unveiled! podcast.

Cleaner Guys is a well-established business that provides exceptional cleaning and restoration services—including issues related to mold.

During the podcast, Tim, Liz, and Bob examine myriad mold questions, including:

• Do home appraisers and home inspectors need to reveal the discovery of mold?

• Is mold always a health concern?

• What should home buyers and home sellers need to consider when it comes to mold issues?

• How much does mold remediation cost?
