Holt Analytical Review

"Try to have healthy home habits. Open your windows, ventilate your home, buy a humidity reader and keep your indoor humidity under 60%. Watering your lawn might bring in moisture if your sprinklers aren’t placed correctly. Consider pulling all plants close to the perimeter of your home."

Lawndale - November 6, 2019

We have owned a 3-story townhome in the South Bay since it was new. At one point the unit suffered from some water damage but we were assured by the water remediation company that all the moisture was removed and the proper repairs made. But soon after myself and my children started to suffer from mysterious respiratory issues that our doctors couldn’t figure out the source of. I finally decided to try to locate an expert in the field to do a full environmental study on the house to see if there were any toxins that could be contributing to our health issues.

Through a referral from a professional association in the environmental field, I contacted Julie at Holt Analytical. From the first call I felt that I had made the right choice. Julie was incredibly professional and thorough and after a very detailed full-house air and surface sampling analysis, the results came back for toxic mold. Julie then came back to try to narrow down the location of the mold in the house and after a detailed visual inspection she found it concealed behind a wall on the first floor of the house. The remediation company had completely missed it and never even checked that wall for moisture!

Armed with the information that Julie was able to provide, we hired a mold remediation company to remove the wall and all the mold in the entire house. Using the data Julie provided, they were able to locate all of it with a high degree of accuracy. Since then our health issues have disappeared and the house is as good as new. We are grateful to have found Holt Analytical and would contact Julie again in a heartbeat should we ever require this type of service again.

I have tremendous respect for Julie of Holt Analytical. She is super reliable, straightforward and tactful. We are a real estate office and our owner, Bram, has been using Julie for a number of years to test for mold in residences. Her quality of work is top-notch. She is very responsive: I can text, call, e-mail, she always responds quickly. She even speaks to our clients directly—she tells it like it is and doesn't exaggerate. I feel absolutely comfortable recommending Julie to friends and family—Bram has even worked with her at his own home. I met her at a property today and we are now completing a sale based on her review. Julie just does one thing, does it well, and is exceptional. She is an expert in her field.

I clean up properties that have been destroyed from mold, fire and water damage. Holt Analytical does mold testing and environmental clearance for us. My job takes me all over the country and so I use multiple companies that offer this service. I’ve been using Holt for a long time. Julie is very responsive and quick at getting reports back. The quality of work is the best it gets in and done usually in less than a day. I know the fair market value of this service, and she falls right in line.

I was getting really sick and we were looking for answers. After reviewing Julie’s credentials with my medical specialist, we agreed that I needed her services. My physical symptoms had escalated to the point that I moved out—I couldn’t even step foot in my own house without getting sick. Julie tested my home for various mold contaminants. She has extensive experience in mold testing and post-remediation testing, and I was so impressed by her attention to detail. Whatever space she needs to crawl in and out of she does without hesitation. Julie is very upfront with her recommendations and the costs involved. She always kept me apprised of the progress and I found her to be reachable by e-mail, phone and text. I have recommended Holt Analytical to family and friends without reservation. I think ultimately when you find someone that you trust, you tend to stick with them and refer them to others. I’ve had to rely on Holt Analytical for pertinent information on the biggest investment of my life (my house) and my physical health.

Julie has worked on numerous jobs for me. She is highly rated, very thorough and offers excellent reports. Holt is better than other companies we've used. She's usually out to the location the day after I call. Some houses are occupied, so she works around the residents’ availability as well. Julie is very open with communication and I can usually reach her even during off hours. Her prices are more than reasonable for what you are getting in return. I am absolutely comfortable recommending Holt and already have. What she does is spot on for our needs.

I had removed the caulk in my bathroom and didn't replace it for a long time so I was worried that mold was growing. I called Holt Analytical and Julie checked the whole house. It's kind of a scary and confusing process, but Julie was very helpful in helping me understand everything, including the report. Julie wanted me to get one more test than was estimated, but she gave it to me for half price. Julie is very responsive, no trouble getting a hold of her. Her demeanor is very pleasant and relaxing. The price was absolutely worth it. I recommend Julie highly. She is very thorough.
