    "After almost 34 years in our Shaker Heights home and untold contractors, painting companies, and individual freelancers, we have finally found the Reilly expertise, innovation and follow through that make your mother-in-law's testimonials sound modest. Your team was outstanding. The next time I need an out-of-the-ordinary project, I will be sure to call both you for repeated work and your mother-in-law for new recommendations."

  • Find that mold in your home

    basement mold on wall

    With spring just around the corner, now is the time to check for mold throughout your home. If you suffered water damage or flooding during the winter, we highly recommend checking these common places where this yucky stuff can grow:

    1. Beneath drywall- If your walls show signs of mold (cracked/peeling paint, bulging behind the paint, discoloration of walls), then that section of drywall should be torn out and inspected.

    2. Basement crawl spaces- In basements and crawl spaces, just look for any evidence of dampness. Be especially aware of any black mold growth that might be taking place in wooden building materials, especially in the framing, since this is the best path for mold to take to other parts of the home.

    3. Above the ceiling- Just as mold in the wall cavities can lead to mold growth in interior walls, the same can happen in the spaces above ceilings. Especially since a common source of water infiltration - roof leaks - start from above.
