Asbestos is scary to the average homeowner but Angelina made me feel like it was totally manageable.

J.L. Toronto

We already have referred others to Healthy Abode because of the great service and knowledge.

S.G. Toronto

I felt I got all my questions answered, the report was very complete and I have much more information than I expect to have about what’s wrong and how to fix it. It was very educational.

S.C. Toronto

Angelina was great to deal with and truly went the extra mile, calling the City on my behalf to find out what other options are available for my bug treatment. I am in the middle of a three-unit row house and wanted my neighbours to get on board to help solve the bug issue. Angelina and her staff went above and beyond the agreed upon DNA check of the bug I found and called the City for me, then sent me a very clear and helpful email of what the City offers.
