Asthma/Allergy Inspection

Steve Cloninger, President of Get It Done, Inc. recently completed his training to become a certified healthy homes inspector in conjunction with AAFA-STL. 

Get It Done has developed a 65-point, whole house inspection for families who deal with allergy and asthma issues to help identify and remedy environmental issues that can cause problems.  

What’s more exciting about this inspection is that for every five purchased, Get It Done is offering one hour of service to AAFA-STL clients.
