A Bit of History from Joe Crivello-CEO of AmeriDri

19 years ago I was a chef at the Sundance Mexican Restaurant in Red River, New Mexico. The carpets were dirty and needed to be cleaned but I couldn’t find anyone locally to do it.

I rented a portable carpet machine and got to work. My banker saw me and asked if I would do the bank lobby also. Others in our small ski town followed and pretty soon I was cleaning the whole town of Red River and into Taos, New Mexico!

I developed a passion for the work and liked meeting so many different people that I decided to make it my full time occupation.

Then Came The Frozen Pipes

Before long there were homes and businesses in the area that were flooding from frozen pipes that had burst. That’s when I went to school and became certified in water damage restoration … studying drying techniques and realizing there was a lot more to this than simply sucking up some water.

Mold Allergies, Sickness, or Poisoning

Whatever you want to call it … my wife got it! The house we were living in had hidden mold behind the walls and attic and my wife was getting very sick. This was back in early 2000 before mold was “in the news” like it is today.

I went to the best mold remediation & inspection school in the nation (American Council for Accredited Certification,WWW.ACAC.ORG) and became a certified mold specialist. My firsthand experience with mold and the health issues that it can cause has made me somewhat of a crusader, but not an alarmist.

There is still a lot we don’t know about the hazards of mold contamination and I am constantly updating my education and my employee’s education on the subject.

The Better Business Bureau of Southern Colorado

AmeriDri carries an A+ rating with the local BBB of Southern Colorado but that’s not enough for me. AmeriDri is not happy if you’re not happy.

Nationally Recognized Certifications vs. Internet Diploma Mill

I am for continuing education and training; however, if you check companies on the internet you will find that most are certified by online certification companies that certify a person after a few hours of online open book exams. The American Council for Accredited Certificationis by far the most thorough certification board a person can be certified by. The American Council for Accredited Certification has closed book testing and all certified individuals need to recertify every 24 months. Internet testing has no requirements for recertification resulting in a lack of knowledge in new techniques. There is no substitute for actually going into hundreds of homes and doing a great job to the satisfaction of the customer and the insurance company.
