Mold and Water
Can Be Stressful
When you find mold or water damage, your mind flashes to the worst cases. The water-damaged foundation that collapses a whole floor. The black-mold-infested walls that make your kids sick and have to be ripped out. Mildew under the floorboards that rots your joists.
Predators prey on your fears. The home services industry is awash with generalists and handymen who claim to know about mold and love to tell you it’s killing your family as we speak. These are nationwide franchise-based companies with no set standards on expertise who say they can fix your plumbing, remediate the mold, take out the trash and walk your dog for $20 an hour. They’re out to confuse you, and they’ve made the mold remediation process more stressful than it needs to be.
Of the 200,000 strains of mold, only a few pose serious health risks, and those are generally only seen in the most severe cases. Water and mold issues do need to be handled fast, but it’s unlikely to be the nightmare scenario if you call EPS professionals quickly.
What you need is not scare tactics. You need an expert who can respond quickly and efficiently.

mold and moisture specialist
These problems are too important to leave to a glorified handyman. You need someone who knows mold and moisture inside and out, with years of experience and training.

The 5-Step Water Restoration Process
Evaluate the damage
After an initial interview about what problems you’ve had, we take precise measurements around your property. These give us an idea of what remediation, water damage restoration, or crawl space encapsulation will require, and the cost.
Find the cause
A critical step that general contractors and handymen often miss is finding the cause of the problem. If you have a moisture issue in your crawl space or visible mold, that didn’t spontaneously appear. If we don’t find the root cause, they will come back after remediation. We remediate the root causes before ANY put-back work begins.
Fix the issues
We execute on the plan we presented, explaining along the way what we’re doing and how the situation develops. Our crews work professionally and treat your home with respect.
Repair & rebuild
We don’t just fix the root of the problems in your home, we also help you rebuild. Our technicians can put your home back the way it was before all this started.
We stand by our work
We don’t just clean up and leave, never to be heard from again. We offer 1-year warranties* on mold remediation work.

“Not only were they quick in getting the huge project done but they left the home in perfect condition making the rental of the home so much easier on us. The guys are also pleasant and professional and great to work with.”
EPS is a leader in the mold remediation industry. We take a forensic approach to your home or office when mold shows up. Our plan of attack is informed by measurements, samples, testing, and budget.
Removal doesn’t mean simply removal. We dig deep to find the root causes of the mold growth and attack it at the source, so that it doesn’t come back. Our mold remediation work comes with a 1-year warranty*.
Whether it’s a sudden catastrophic leak or a slow leak that has done its damage over time, you need help today. For water emergencies, call us today. We respond quickly, 24/7. The sooner we can get there, the less damage your home or commercial property will have. We stabilize and mitigate further damage.
Our goal is to focus on the structure and loss prevention simultaneously, an approach that often increases restoration and recovery by 50% or more. We treat wood and metal finishes to stabilize them and remove wet drywall and installation to prevent secondary water damage, as well as shrink wrapping roofing materials to make them weather tight. Our goal is to save unaffected areas from secondary damage and test everything affected to see if it can be salvaged.
At EPS, we work extensively in the commercial space, across a wide variety of industries. Room-by-room work, whole-floor projects, and even complete building rehabs. We build plans that work for the size and scope of your commercial needs. Insurance company audits on the projects are the norm for us.
We work with schools, property management companies, hotels/resorts, military bases, hotels, warehouses, and many more. Water damage restoration, mold remediation, odor removal and more, we can get your business back up and running quickly and thoroughly.
Crawl Space Encapsulation
Rain and high humidity cause moisture to get into your crawl spaces and foster mildew and mold growth. About half the air you breath on the first floor of your home circulates through your crawl space. Don’t you want that crawl space to be free of mold growth?
The Middle Tennessee region especially deals with high humidity and rich soil beneath homes that supercharge mold, bacteria and fungal growth. You don’t want the first time you find out your property has mold eating away the floor joists and sub-floor to be during a pre-sale inspection.
Remodel & Repair
As old pros in the restoration business, we know how much damage mold and water can do to a building. We are a one-stop-shop for your rebuilding needs. If you need a refresh after a catastrophe, think EPS.
Our patent-pending mycotoxin removal protocol is a whole-home treatment that eliminates up to 94% of surface mycotoxins on building materials. These toxins can linger for years after active mold is removed. Don’t let them continue to harm mold-sensitive family members.
