Molding testing - prompt, thorough, informative, easy to work with
Marc was very through in checking all levels of the house. He explained what he was doing as he went along and shared information on the relative humidity levels in different locations. He was very easy to talk to, very pleasant and a delight to work with.
Should you be in the unfortunate situation of suspecting mold, I would highly recommend Marc as the first person to call to determine exactly what is going on. He provides detailed instructions for the mold remediation team as to what they are dealing with and how to best handle it.
He scheduled an appointment a few days after I contact him and his report was in my hands a week after he came onsite to collect the samples. His price was very reasonable for the amount of time onsite, analysis and report writing.

Honest and Professional
I contacted AMT seeking an air quality test for a home I considered purchasing. The house was about 1000 feet from a gas station and I had concerns about potential harmful emissions getting into the house. I had spoken with several agencies about the testing process and I had heard a variety of prices (everything from $500 to $1200), and procedures for testing the air for three hours to twenty-three hours. Honestly, my head was spinning.
When I spoke with Marc at AMT,however, he was honest, upfront, and professional. He explained the limits of the testing and explained that based on my circumstances, he was not 100% certain that an air quality test would be able to accurately provide the information I was seeking within the time frame I was working with. He also located some articles for me about NIH research into the matter and suggested that I reach out to the EPA and a few other environmental agencies to get a better sense of safety guidelines.
How about that friends? He could have taken me for a lot of money, but instead, he had integrity and was a true professional. Based on this, I would highly recommend AMT. This is a business you can trust and Marc has deep knowledge on the subject of air quality testing. You will not find better.

I would recommend AMT to anyone who is concerned about a possible mold issue. Marc was prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. He was very thourough with the mold inspection and air testing. Explains things so that they are easy to understand and pointed out areas of concern to keep an eye on. I had a report within a few days, with some suggestions on things that would help with the musty basement smell.

Oustanding Professional Service
Marc is a highly professional expert and AMT deserves more than 5 stars. A rental property for sale was found to have a probable fungi/mold problem. We called AMT immediately and Marc made room in his schedule to get out to the property the next morning as time was of the essence. Key to us was receiving an un-biased expert analysis first so we could proceed accordingly quickly, and AMT delivered what we required! Marc was thorough, quickly found the source of the moisture causing the problem (broken dryer vent under insulation), patiently explained everything in detail and answered all questions. Marc then went out of his way to expedite the testing for us and to get us the results and his detailed analysis the next afternoon! Followed by patiently answering more questions! The plus is Marc is a wonderful person, too! We absolutely recommend AMT to one and all! Thanks, again, Marc!

Professional and personable
Marc was prompt and thorough. He explained everything he was doing and it's significance. Along the way he pointed out areas that needed attention so when the report arrived there were no big surprises. He is well versed in his field and enthusiastically shares his knowledge so it's easy to understan. I confidently recommend his services to anyone looking to get air tested in their homes.
- Lila R
We asked Marc to do a mold test on a prospective house with a history of mold. He was responsive, knowledgeable and patient with my questions before and after the test results came back. Recommended to other people who need testing or remediation.
- Alia .
Excellent!! Very Honest & Direct
Marc is a wonderful man. I had many questions which he answered without hesitation. He has a tremendous amount of knowledge. I am amazed to have found someone who truly works in the Best Interest of the Customer! Air Quality and Mold questions can be scary with so many companies just trying to take our money. If you need assistance on this I would ONLY recommend AMT & Marc! In fact I have already recommended him to a co- worker who was also very skeptical to call for help. Marc- I hope you read this an truly know how much I appreciate YOU & the person and business man you are!! There are not enough thank you words to express my gratitude.
- Robyn .
Very professional and responsive service
My office building had a few issues with water coming in to the building during some heavy rainstorms. My office staff had a concern that there could be a mold issue due to these conditions. I decided that the appropriate thing to do was to have the building professionally tested to determine the levels of mold. I contacted Marc and explained the situation and wanted some guidance in the event that remediation was needed.
Marc performed the testing and in a few days he issued a tremendously thorough report that provided a detailed analysis of his findings. Luckily, the report showed that no remediation was necessary. Due to Marc's professional work all of us at my company were relieved and thankful.
I highly recommend ATM Mold Testing and would use them again if this service was needed again.

Fast, Professional and Thorough
After removing some wallpaper in my office, a significant amount of black mold was uncovered. I contacted Marc asking if he had time to come in to inspect it and within two days he was in the office pulling air samples, swabs, and checking air conditioners and air ducts. He was very thorough and knowledgable and communicated the issues at hand effectively.
After the reports came back we were lucky to discover the mold was not at a level that was harmful but we followed Marc's advice and had all the wallpaper and mold removed over a weekend. Everyone is very relieved that the issue has been settled.
- Kuba .
Marc Leftwich is extremely knowledgeable, reliable, professional and practical. He diagnosed the problems before receiving test results, and was able to explain his technical findings in a manner for a lay person can understand.

Reliable, knowledgeable and great customer service
I've worked with Marc twice now and have had a pleasant experience both times. He's prompt and does what he says going to do. Marc is very knowledgeable and provides great customer service - he's very easy to work with. I highly recommend.
- joseph .
Excellent, prompt, knowledgeable, and thorough
Marc did the air quality and mold inspection for a 70+ year old home we are in the process of purchasing. From the first time I contacted him on the phone, he took the time to find out why we wanted this particular inspection, (past water damage in basement)... explained the process, and made himself available on a very short timeline. (I called Weds; he was there Friday). He walked us through his findings during the inspection, answered all of our questions thoroughly and clearly, and delineated necessary remediations in his expertly written report. The turn around time was very fast (2 days). It wasn't a cheap inspection, but we've been around long enough to know that you get what you pay for. He went into extremely tight spaces to get the photos and samples he's need to write the best report he could for our needs. Would definitely recommend his services.
- Erin .
Marc was very professional and very knowledgable. I had report in 3 days.
- Anu K
Professional, knowledgeable service with great communication

I very much appreciate the timely and professional service provided by Marc. He explained every step of the process thoroughly, and made himself available to explain the results and recommendations. I highly recommend AMT for mold testing and diagnosis.
- Tony .
We were thoroughly impressed by the friendly and professional way your consultant Marc handled the inspection for mold at our house. He inspected and took samples of mold and the air in our basement areas as well of the air quality of master bedroom. An outside inspection was done as well. We definitely would recommend your company and Marc for any other such problems that may arise again . He also recommended what work needed to be done in order to alleviate the problem
- Al K
Very knowledgable, responsive and easy to work with.
The biggest compliment I can give Marc is I truly felt he was looking out for me and my family's best interest. He wasn't just 'doing his job'. He wanted to make sure our issue was fully diagnosed and properly taken care of. He took the time to explain in detail what he needed to do and then how to remediate the issue. Also, very easy to get a hold of. Every time I called he answered his phone...never got voicemail.
- Ryan .
Professional and thorough
Marc came on time, explained the process and expectations, and was available for follow up questions. Very knowledgeable.
- C P
Professional, thorough and courteous service
We contacted AMT to conduct air quality testing because of a possible allergy issue with a family member. Marc arrived on time, conducted a thorough inspection of the house (including attic and basement), and took air samples from several areas of the house as well as from outside of the house. Lab results as well as a detailed analysis and explanation were emailed to us promptly. Marc was friendly and courteous, and we were very pleased with his expertise and professionalism. In fact, I have recommended AMT to my allergist for other patients.
- Cheryl .
Knowledgeable and Informative - Highly recommend!
In addition to completing the mold testing, Marc was knowledgeable, informative and provided clear, easy to understand explanations about the testing process, air quality measures and why both are important.
We had little knowledge of mold and its potential impact on the air quality and safety in our home. Marc provided thorough explanations to all of our questions which enabled us to understand the air quality report we received from AMT, necessary next steps for mold remediation and what was necessary to improve the air quality in our home. He was also very patient in working with us as we worked with our insurance company. Email and phone communications were also very professional.
- Letitia .
Marc was most helpful in explaining the mold testing and the results along with
suggesting possible ways to help prevent future mold problems in this 150 year
old house. He was professional and thorough in his explanations. We appreciated
his work and would highly recommend him.
- Shirley .
Highly Qualified and Professional
Due to a potential leak in the condo above us we needed to test our condo because my wife recently had lung surgery (cancer) and also has COPD. We consulted with AMT ahead of time and they advised what protective actions to take. They came out did the tests and we got an excellent report. I would recommend them to anyone. Key is they are an independent consultant and do not do the remediation so you can trust their results!
- Richichard .
Marc came out to a house that my husband and I are in the process of purchasing. When mold came up we were definitely concerned, and we are so thankful we chose AMT. Marc was not only professional throughout the entire process, he was also kind and friendly. As a first time homebuyer, he explained every step of his process and made sure I understood what he was doing and why. His attention to detail put me at ease moving forward in the purchase of this home. I wouldn't hesitate to call Marc and AMT again! Five stars!
- Emily .
Marc Leftwich was a pleasure to work with. He was able to come out to run a mold inspection for us on very short notice, and we were impressed with his willingness to work with us to get quick results! During the inspection, Marc was very thorough, detail-oriented, and explained everything he was doing as he went, so that we could understand the process. Highly recommend Marc and AMT!
- Jim .
Working with Marc was very easy and I found him to be very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful.
I would recommend him in the future.

Excellent service, polite and extremely thorough
I would highly recommend AMT to anyone in need of this service. I was very impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail. I received trusted results...and felt I was in very good hands with AMT. I would only use AMT if ever in need of this service again.
- Lynne B
I needed a home I had under contract inspected for mold quickly. Marc was responsive to my first call, gave me an education about mold and mold testing over the phone and we made an appointment for the inspection. During the inspection, Marc pointed out problems, explained what was serious and what needed to be addressed, but was not serious and then he rushed the lab analysis of samples because of my deadlines. I got back an informative report that was useful in further negotiations on the property. Marc was also available by phone to discuss the report and again to calm my fears and help me understand how to remedy the problems with mold and moisture. Marc was responsive, knowledgeable, thorough, professional and friendly. I would use him again myself and recommend him to anyone who needs mold testing.
- Linda .
Polite, Professional, & Thorough
We are a non-profit housing developer and we used AMT to conduct a mold inspection of a single family home we may purchase and renovate. AMT performed a top-notch inspection. They did not rush the inspection by any means, but were very thorough in searching and testing all corners of the home for mold. Throughout the inspection, AMT was personable, polite, and professional. AMT provided a very detailed report at the conclusion of their inspection. I would highly recommend choosing their services; they are great company that performs high quality work for a fair price.
- Eamon .
Very Capable Service
Marc was as promised: knowledgeable, caring, thorough and objective. Would hire him again any time.
- David R
Helpful and Understanding
In the middle of buying a home, we were told to have a Mold expert look at a potential problem. AMT met a short deadline, produced a thorough report and explained what it all meant. All at a reasonable price, and ahead of schedule. They understood we want the house, and were helpful in deciding what work had to be done. Very happy.
- John .
Very professional and knowledgeable!
If you want your air quality tested, Marc is your guy. He was professional from beginning to end. He is extremely knowledgeable on a variety of issues that may arise throughout the home. He was very maticulate in surveying and observing the entire home, inside and out.
- Seth .
Helped with my home buying decision
I called Marc because I had read his reviews and I needed a property I was looking at checked during the inspection period. I was particularly concerned with a musty oder in the basement that I wanted to make sure wasn't a big issue as I have allergies. Marc came in, did air quality testing and walked me through the house to point out problem areas. It was a pleasure to deal with Marc. He was prompt, professional, and provided results that I was using that helped put my mind a bit more at ease. I would highly recommend.
- Michael .
MVP of the home inspection
As a real estate agent, and owner of multiple properties, I highly recommend Marc to anyone considering a home purchase. He is the first person I call for inspections. My home inspector finds the information imperative as well for doing his own inspection. Never start a project without completing this very important step. Marc does not simply open test jars, he searches out moisture, water intrusion points, plumbing leaks, anything that could potentially be a problem now or in the future. If water is your homes greatest enemy, Marc is your homes super hero! Big thank you to Marc for his outstanding work with my next big project!!! He saved me tons on the front end of the transaction and made sure my kids stayed healthy and safe during our new home adventure.
- Dru .
Outstanding service provider!
AMT Mold Testing and Air Quality Consulting provided an outstanding level of service on a recent visit to our property.
Marc spent time explaining every aspect of his service before, during and after the testing. The testing and report of his findings were thorough and provided a very good assessment and recommendations. In addition Marc was easy to work with and showed a high level of customer service and consideration.
I highly recommend him and AMT without any reservation!
- Paula .
Individualized Professional Assessment
Marc is very knowledgable and handled my case in a way that speaks volumes to his individualized approach. He assessed the property and determined the right tests to perform in order to provide an honest real-time evaluation of the mold spore conditions present. He also took a lot of time to review the history and present conditions of the property and then to explain the basis of his test recommendations so that we were comfortable and confident in his approach before he even started. He was also very considerate of the costs and kept it within our budget, while providing all of the necessary information to resolve the problems. He carefully performed the tests and got the results back and wrote a report within 3 days. We are now confident in what we need to do in order to make the house livable again for my mom who has asthma. Very satisfied with AMT and would highly recommend him to anyone who want honest results from someone who is clearly an expert in the industry.
- Neil .
High Quality Service, Expert Technician
Marc from AMT was very helpful, professional and knows what he's talking about. He looked for root cause to prior to testing to identify the best areas to sample, I got the impression that he was genuinely trying to help me with identify the best path forward. He made remediation suggestions during his assessment, was able to answer all of my questions and made himself available for follow up. I would recommend AMT to anyone looking for mold testing.
- Michael .
Expert and Professional
Marc's level of expertise and knowledge about mold issues is unparalleled. His evaluations are extremely thorough and comprehensive, and he does a great job of explaining the findings and outlining implications and solutions. I am very sensitive to mold, and Marc was very helpful during our house-hunting process; he inspected and tested several houses we were considering, steered us clear of potentially problematic situations, and helped us zero in on a healthy home.
- Dorothy .
Excellent service/Good people
Marc was referred to me by a friend when is I was in the beginning stages of considering mold to be the cause of my health problems. He was prompt, professional and sympathetic to my situation. It felt like a friend coming over to help out rather than a cool business interaction. Marc was extremely knowledgeable about his craft and from my own research, I understand that this is not always the case in mold situations. I consider myself lucky in stumbling upon the right person. I have already recommended him to a friend and will continue to use him in any upcoming situations, possibly to help me to screen new places to live. I couldn't be happier with our relationship. Jenn

Great Service, Quick and thorough results
After completing major renovation and repair work on our new home, my wife and I recently hired AMT to do air quality testing of each floor of the house. Not only was the service prompt and thorough, but Marc spent the time to discuss the process, the results, and answered all of our questions. I would highly recommend using AMT and would use them again in the future.
- Keith .

We highly recommend AMT Mold Testing company. Marc is honest, highly knowledgeable, and thorough. He takes great measures and time to figure out not just what's wrong, but also the source of the problem. He is an expert in his field, very responsive, and personable. He answered our many questions with patience and wrote a report that detailed a clear action plan. We couldn't say enough good things about him.
- Gabe M

Marc fit me into his busy schedule and was prompt, arriving when he promised as well as providing an accurate estimate of how long the testing would take. The lab results were available when he said, and he followed up with his written report timely. The written report explained the meaning and conclusions behind the raw data. I am very pleased with his service.

Mark is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and quick to respond. He is helpful with his recommendations.
- Maria .
My situation required immediate attention. At the recommendation of a very accomplished Industrial Hygienist from my previous tenure as a corporate executive, I was referred to AMT. AMT provided the immediate attention that was necessary, I dealt directly with the owner, and I was informed of the progress through every step of the process. My expected write-up was delivered within two days of the service. Excellent service and pride of ownership for customer service. I would recommend AMT across the board. Thank you AMT.
- Sam .
Very Professional, Highly Recommended!
I was looking to purchase my first home when I hired Marc at AMT to perform mold testing. It was a flipped property, showing no real obvious signs of mold issues, as most flipped properties usually don't. Everything "appeared" new having been all freshly painted inside and out, with new bathrooms and a brand new kitchen. The seller had disclosed no water problems or mold issues with the house. I did have my concerns though due do the properties inherent characteristics and wanted to do my due diligence as mold problems are serious and can be costly to remedy or correct.
I knew immediately after first reaching out to Marc at AMT that his company was the only one I wanted to hire to perform the mold testing. He was extremely knowledgeable, informative, and very professional. He spent the time to explain to me the different types of mold that could be present, how molds develop, the types of testing he performs, and the cost for his services. He was able to accommodate me on very short notice and I really appreciated that considering our time table for getting our inspections done was very short.
During his inspection, before he began any testing, Marc did a thorough walk around the inside and outside of the property with me. He pointed out areas of concern and alerted me to some potential problem areas that spoke to past mold and water issues within the home. After his initial inspection he began the air sampling testing within the home and one on the outside of the home. The test results were promptly sent off to his lab for examination and we had our results within a day or two.
I would highly recommend AMT for any type of mold testing or air sampling. They know what they’re doing and I would definitely use their services again.
- Wes .
Marc at AMT Mold Testing and Indoor Air Quality Consulting was very understanding of our concerns. We were extremely happy with the thorough air quality testing provided. We received results in only a few days that provided piece of mind to our family. I highly recommend AMT!!
- Chris W
Outstanding work / A true Professional
I want to start this review by saying I have never worked with AMT nor did I know about them prior to engaging them in work my family needed during a very difficult time.
With that said, my wife and two kids, a one year old and a three year old rented an apartment. As soon as we moved in we noticed a smell. We were not sure what it was or where it was coming from. As a few days passed and we unpacked, we realized that we were getting headaches and not feeling well. We were advised to have the apartment checked for mold. I went to google, did a search and started to call a few mold experts. After speaking with AMT I had a high comfort level as they were helping me understand what it could be and the process to determine if its mold.
AMT showed up at our place on time, they were even a few minutes early. I showed them where I thought the issue was coming from and they began to do their thing. As Marc walked around our place he was explaining to me what he was looking for so I had a better understanding of what he was doing which really helped. As Marc found the source of the mold, he took the time to point it out to me and explain to what he found, again it was very helpful for me to understand what he was doing as I've never been through anything like this before.
Marc then took the time to explain to me the different types of testing that he can do. He explained to me the approach he would take if this were his family which really helped to humainze the situation. Marc took the samples, did what he needed to do and explained to me what I can expect once he leaves. He also provided a time line for whch we can expect the results from the lab and then the full report. I can say he under promised and over delivered on both. He got us the results from the lab and the full report prior to the dates he stated to us.
I can recommend to anyone, based off of the level of professionalism, respect and level of care we received that if anyone is in need of mold testing or speaking to an expert, I highly recommend AMT. They made the unknown, known for my family and I during what was a difficult time. I highly recommend AMT.

GREAT HELP WITH BOTH OF MY HOMES
Marc Leftwich of AMT was so patient and knowledgable with my home and the basement mold last year. My Mother's home vacant for awhile, as she now resides with me developed a mold problem in the basement and what seemed to be rather high counts in the entire house - very concerning to me. Her home is about 3hrs away and was tested by another company that would not seem to explain the situation to me. I called Marc and he thoroughly explained in a very unhurried and kind manner what he thought was happening and how I needed to continue. My mind was put to ease and I was extremely grateful for his help. I would recommend AMT to anyone.
- Mary .
Professional, knowledgeble, courteous, and prompt
I am the maintenance manager for Your Local Leasing Company, a residential property management company. One of our residents reported that she and one of her children had been to the hospital for respiratory issues and had concerns that there was toxic mold present in the house they were renting (located in Delaware County). My company takes health and safety issues very seriously, so we contacted AMT Mold Testing & Indoor Air Quality Consulting to determine if we had a true problem at that property. Marc, the owner of the company, did the evaluation and air testing as well as moisture readings in the suspect areas. He sent the samples to the lab and provided us with a full report of the results. To our relief, the tests showed trace levels (normal) of microbial spores. Of course, had the test results shown elevated levels, we would have known what we were dealing with and would have been able to remediate accordingly.
- Paul .
I have been very happy with the service I have received to date. Marc Leftwich is very knowledgeable and has given me good advice about changes that need to be made to my basement and in dealing with the mold remediation contractors. I would recommend him to anyone who is concerned with mold issues. He was also instrumental in helping us get contractors on site in a timely manner so we could meet deadlines and close on our new house on time.

Excellent Service. Knowledgeable expert advise.
