Exploring the possibilities of mold and other toxins within your own home can be overwhelming and stressful but we were so glad to have David with First Stop Environmental guide our way through this process. David is professional, kind and knowledgeable. His work is thorough and he is sure to explain his process to you every step of the way, answering questions you may have. Thank you so much, David, for your help!

David Silver was a bad deal for us. My Landlord called him after we had made the appointment with another expert. Mr. Silver acted in a disrespectful manner in the presence of the Police, leaving an INVOICE of $800 without performing the work. Everything was captured on cameras. We (Tenants) have a major mold crisis in our home. Mr Silver turned out to be unprofessional. And while we were dealing with a complicated scenario we received excellent service from another expert. We do not recommend Mr Silver's services!!! He is an uninformed and compulsive professional for anyone dealing with a mold problem in their home.

5.0 James M. Woodstock, NY

David Silver was extremely helpful to us when we had a major mold crisis in our home. He was generous with his time, very clear in his recommendations, and very good at working collaboratively with the remediators we hired as they dealt with a complicated scenario. We would highly recommend him as a knowledgeable and compassionate professional to any who are dealing with a mold issue in their home.

5.0 Marni G. Orangeburg, NY

One of (if not the) best specialist we've worked with on a home purchase. David was extremely responsive and thoroughly answered every question we had from initial consultation through report result stages. He was super transparent in pricing and recommended testing, sent out samples and wrote up his report extremely quickly, and did a great job of explaining our testing results and recommendations. I felt I could trust David to properly test our property and that he would give us educated recommendations for remediation.

5.0 Rox E. Woodstock, NY

David was professional, responsible, and knowledgeable. We now fully understand the issues that exist in our home with mold and have clear, detailed reporting that we used to inform remediation companies so they can now take care of the biggest problem areas. David was on time, thorough, and very easy to work with.

5.0 Leigh M. Fort Montgomery, NY

Extremely thorough and knowledgeable. Really took his time with extreme attention to detail. I am very pleased with the results. Shared a lot of information and walked me through the steps. This is definitely not a service where you want to cut corners. Highly recommend!!!

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
