Originally from the Chicago area, I have also lived in NJ and Florida. While in NJ, I owned and operated a highly successful business that focused on customer service, returning to FL in 1998 with my wife and son. I have three wonderful children, Danielle, Lee and Sierra, and two dogs, a Golden, Koda and a Maltese, Mitzie. I've always loved and respected the natural environment and enjoy hiking and boating, and of course, strolling our beautiful Florida beaches.
After finishing my environmental education and inspection training, I founded Detailed Inspection Services in 2001, performing residential and commercial structural and environmental inspections for property buyers and concerned owners. I have been performing mold testing evaluations for over 15 years, and am proud to be one of the original Florida State Licensed Mold Assessors. I decided to specialize in indoor environmental issues, primarily mold, because of its negative effects on human health. In 2014, we changed our company name to Expert Mold Test in order to reflect our specialization in this field. Our main area of service covers Pinellas, Hillsboro and Manatee Counties.

My philosophy and top priority has always been to provide my clients with the Very Best in Customer Service and satisfaction. It is my greatest pleasure to help people resolve their mold concerns in the least stressful way. I am pleased and proud that my customer’s reviews include statements about my professionalism, helpfulness, integrity, knowledge, and work ethic. “Quality is Dan's first commitment to his customers. Secondly, he cares to see the job done right.”-BF. With this in mind, I always love to connect on a personal level, and will never mind talking about the Elmhurst area of Illinois!

"I am a Real Estate Agent and when people hear "MOLD" everyone goes CRAZY! I have referred Dan Brave at Expert Mold Test many times to help with mold testing and remediation. He is professional and knowledgeable but best of all....he knows how to talk to people about what is going on! He explains everything anyone can understand it and he helps minimize the drama and get to the facts and the solutions quickly and professionally. He recently helped me with a personal water intrusion /mold situation so now I KNOW the trust and comfort he offers from personal experience. Thank you Dan! I am grateful to know you as a professional and as a customer!!!"
Tony Metas (Property Manager)
"As a property manager overseeing 108 residential and commercial properties, I deal with many vendors and contractors. Dan proved himself to be highly professional and we were able to close on the largest lease contract in company history (on time) due to his prompt services. We would recommend Dan's services to anyone."

"We were re-modeling our Master Bathroom, and the contractor discovered a small area of mold. We were concerned, so we called Dan...."
