Public Safety and Building Science Experience

Michael Larmon Jr. has previously worked for over 20 years as a police officer and a firefighter. Both of these positions helped him develop an extensive education in building science and public safety. When he changed careers, he put the experience he had acquired to use by helping people in a different way as the owner and operator of a mold remediation and fire and water damage restoration company. Today, as a licensed and certified home inspector, Michael goes the extra mile for home buyers by paying special attention to any safety issues in the home and offering his professional advice about property maintenance. He fully understands the importance and functionality of each individual home system, and he is eager to share this knowledge with all of his clients – especially first-time home buyers.
