Operation Help A Hero
There are hundreds of homeless Veterans in Chicago. The City of Chicago is working hard to create a system where any episode of homelessness is rare and brief through the End Veterans Homelessness Initiative (EVHI). As we house these veterans, the transition from shelter or transitional housing to permanent housing, means many veterans do not have basic items to set up a home. Mayor Emanuel, the City Council, and Jewel-Osco are joining together in the month of June to help homeless Veterans in Chicago by creating move-in kits. Please help by donating new household items.

I wasn't able to access the Every Block Oriole Park site to ask a question. We live in the area and are seeking a reputable company to remediate mold in our closet. It is black mold and needs to be removed ASAP. I used Home Advisor but the contractor they referred me to wanted to charge us a lower price if we would pay cash instead of by check or credit card.

I wasn't able to access the Every Block Oriole Park site to ask a question. We live in the area and are seeking a reputable company to remediate mold in our closet. It is black mold and needs to be removed ASAP. I used Home Advisor but the contractor they referred me to wanted to charge us a lower price if we would pay cash instead of by check or credit card. We do not feel comfortable with that, as we would have no recourse, if something went wrong with the work. We are looking for a company that is licensed and bonded and that is EXPERIENCED and COMPETENT. We would like a contract to have the mold removed, assess for any tuckpointing damage, identify any moisture source/s and then repair the closet. We might be willing to use a separate contractor to put insulation against the bricks, install green board drywalls and re-install the few shelves and coat rack.
We are hoping to find someone any of you have used who can help us within the next two weeks. Has anyone used a qualified company they can recommend to us?
