Hey there! This is Isaiah Mahlstedt, the guy with the grey shirt and the vest in the picture above.
Now, this isn’t my page, but I wanted to introduce it to you by telling you the story - alright, the short version - behind why Dad created Manage Mold.
For as long as I can remember, my parents, Dean and Lorna Mahlstedt, have owned a local business focused on providing the best results and customer experience in the Cleaning and Restoration Industry. Water Damage, Fire Damage, Janitorial Cleaning, Commercial Floor Care, Carpet Cleaning, and yes, Mold Remediation.
As we kids grew up, we got the amazing opportunity to work (and learn) in the business. Life was pretty normal (at least, as far as normal goes!) until everything changed for us in July of 2012.
To make a really long story short, we discovered that all of us had Lyme Disease, complicated by multiple areas of mold hiding in our house. Suddenly, our family’s top priority was to get our home - and ourselves - healthy again.
That started a journey of discovery. How could we more reliably discover where mold was hiding, both in our house and our client's? What was the best process to safely and effectively remove the contamination? And how could we prevent it from happening again in the future?
I was amazed as I saw Dad and Mom work as a team. Mom went to work to get US healthy again, while Dad dove deep into studying, getting certifications, and helping many other families discover and fix the mold issues in their homes that were affecting their health.
