Restoration and Environmental Safety Technologies, LLC
Your #1 source for Asbestos Inspections, Mold Testing, Chemical Testing & Removal
We were referred to Greg and Carrie from FSM to dig out our crawl space. After meeting with them we also hired their crew for Vermiculite removal in our attic and HVAC cold air return removal in the crawl space. Two jobs that are very difficult tasks in incredibly difficult areas that no one wants to do. Their crew spent countless hours in our crawl and in our attic on two separate occasions that were booked ahead of time which were started and completed exactly as promised. The workers were incredibly polite to our family and worked HARD from start to finish each day, some days until 8 PM. So much so that we bought them lunch and dinner on several occasions for their effort. Both owners communicated with my husband and myself throughout the entire process. I cannot say enough good things about this company and will refer my clients willingly.
I needed vermiculite insulation removed from my attic. Greg and Carrie explained how they would remove the insulation and get me a LOT of money back through the Zonolite fund, which I knew nothing about! I later found out that some other companies don’t tell you about the fund and keep the refund checks for themselves! I had REST remove the vermiculite and reinsulate my attic. I couldn’t be more pleased!
I would highly recommend Rest for Mold Testing and Air Quality testing, He is for the customer, and that’s what counts. He spoke with us and answered all the questions we had. He took his time to make sure all our concerns were taken care of. He led us in the right direction and gave us true information. We were willing to spend more on testing that we only thought we needed by reading horror stories online, but Greg is a very honest person, worked with us not against us. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need.
I was looking for asbestos tile abatement in my basement due to flooding. Having no luck with the “so-called professional” I first contacted. I found REST online, and Greg Fahrenbruch contacted me almost immediately, and it was on a Saturday. He came out later that same day and was very professional and personable. He gave me a very fair estimate for the work. His team came out that Monday morning. Carrie and her crew were FANTASTIC. They were also very professional and personable, and did a GREAT job in the basement. I recommend this company to all!
I had Rest out after I discovered Bat Guano in my attic. Greg was able to come out right away and give me an estimate. I hired them and had a great experience. The crew he had come out, was respectful to my home and took the time to explain step by step what they would be doing prior to starting. I was very comfortable with the company and very satisfied with the work. Great company!
Greg came out and was very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. I would recommend REST to anyone.
The entire job took a week, which may seem long to some but in our case it wasn’t. We bought a new home that was inspected and passed. Two months later, with one week left before we moved in, it was discovered that we have mold in our basement from the previous owners not taking care of previous water damage. Greg and his team killed all of the mold growing in our basement. The job consisted of tearing down our drywall, paneling, ceiling tiles, replacing our unclean air with safe air to breathe. Being a mom of a one-year-old asthmatic child, this was something very serious and important for us.
Worked with Jason on this project. Jason was informative and ran his team well. They sealed off the room, used negative pressure for any dust that came up, wet down the tiles, and had the project done in about 3 hours. Also had Jason come back for mold test due to basement flooding which came back clean. It was his recommendation for peace of mind and to start rebuilding from flood damage knowing all is good. Thank you for the work, Jason. Much appreciated.
I had ongoing odor problems mostly due to the flood despite having had my basement cleaned and sanitized by a national company. I discovered Greg Fahrenbruch’s company recently. He promptly addressed my concerns through testing and remediation efforts which dramatically improved my air quality. I found Greg to be a problem-solving, knowledgeable professional dedicated to restoring his customer’s home to a healthy living environment. He readily answered questions throughout the process.
I was looking for asbestos tile abatement in my basement due to flooding. Having no luck with the “so-called professional” I first contacted, I went through Home Advisor. Greg Fahrenbruch contacted me almost immediately, and it was on a Saturday. He came out later that same day and was very professional and personable. He gave me a very fair estimate for the work. His team came out that Monday morning. The manager Mike Peel and his crew were FANTASTIC. They were also very professional and personable and did a GREAT job in the basement. Mike went the extra mile to ensure my basement concrete was ready for the next step in my flooring plans. All my calls and questions were answered very promptly and thoroughly. I recommend this company to all!
Mr. Fahrenbruch and his team get the job done! Very professional and timely! Very knowledgeable and excellent communicator. He spent extra money to assure the proper color & quality of the bridging compound used. Would HIGHLY recommend R.E.S.T. for asbestos tile abatement and air quality testing. 5-STAR COMPANY!

Greg was very quick to respond, which was important because we were preparing a house to be put on the market for sale the week, we called him. He came the day we called to check out the problem and returned the next day to resolve the problem. Although he was a stranger to me, I felt safe with him in the house. He was very informative throughout the house.
We found vermiculite insulation in the attic of the home we just purchased. We hired Rest Environmental to remove it. Greg told us about the Vermiculite trust fund where we received more than half our money back, and we also had they put new insulation back in the attic. We are very happy with the job they did!
We had a different company remove asbestos pipe wrap in our home only to discover they contaminated our house with asbestos fibers. Our attorney referred Greg’s company, REST Environmental. He stated that Greg performs expert witness testimony for these types of cases. Greg’s team came out and cleaned our entire home from top to bottom to rid our house of asbestos fibers. We were very happy with them; they made a horrible situation much better!
I was referred to REST Environmental by FSM to remove drywall and move my hot water tank and laundry tub to prepare my basement for waterproofing. They did a very good job at a reasonable price. They also scheduled everything to be put back in place as soon as FSM was done.
I am very pleased and happy with the customer service and the value for my dollar in having worked with Restoration & Environmental Safety Technologies. Would highly recommend them to anyone in need of the services they provide. Have sent an email to everyone on my distribution list with their name/phone number should they need their help in the future.
We needed 6 inches of dirt removed from our crawl space in order to get it encapsulated. We were referred to REST by the encapsulating company. They came to dig out the crawl space, and I’ve never seen guys work so hard in all my life! Thank you to the crew!
Carrie from REST Environmental came to my house and removed the perimeter tile from my living room so I could get new carpet. She was fast, efficient, and friendly!
Greg was very quick to respond. He came out the same day we contacted the company and provided us with an estimate the next day. He was very informative and thorough. The whole team at REST was very professional. Although he was a stranger to me, I felt safe with him and his team in my house. I totally recommend REST! Thanks for a great job, done right!

This company was quick to make contact and schedule my job. Very reliable and quick to respond to my emailed questions.
Nobody wants to deal with an issue like mold in the attic. It took us several attempts to get contractors to come out and even give us a quote. Finally found REST. Greg came out immediately, when I called. They came when they said they would have no hassles or run around. They were quick, literally came out and did the work the next day. Professional, courteous, and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend them.
If you are looking for professionals to help with environmental restoration of any kind call REST. We discovered we had asbestos in our basement when we started finishing it for extra living space. Needless to say, I kind of freaked at hearing the word asbestos but Greg, the owner of REST put my mind at ease. He and his crew came out with air scrubbers and meticulously sealed off the whole basement and removed every trace of asbestos. They finished the job in one day, cleaned up after themselves and were very fair with their charges. I have also rented air scrubbers from them several times during our renovation process. I have referred several friends to REST and will continue to do so. Keep up the good work Greg and Team!
First I talked to Jean, she was very friendly and knowledgeable about the mold process. She set me up with an appointment for Greg to come out and give me a quote. Greg waived his $25 quote charge as a Christmas special and came out for free! This was a pre house purchase and I needed to verify the mold remediation that the seller said was done, was completed correctly. Needless to say, Greg from REST verified that there was still mold in the attic and that the insulation was all disturbed and R value had changed. He proceeded to walk us through the entire house and pointed out other moldy areas. Needless to say, I backed out of the house purchase. When the seller wanted to sue me for my deposit money, I asked Greg from REST if he would come speak about the mold. He graciously said yes and helped me win the case! I HIGHLY recommend REST, they are honest, professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable and educated when it comes to their field.
To sum it up…I’m healthy again, thanks to REST Environmental. I had been sick for months with sinus infections and upper respiratory tract infections. Even after four rounds of antibiotics and 3 rounds of steroids, I just could not get well. REST Environmental conducted mold testing and found the source of the problem. There was a significant amount of mold behind the basement walls. So, we needed to get that stuff out of there! We followed Greg’s recommendations for air purification and mold removal. His team’s work was efficient and thorough….and during the process, Greg was always available to answer questions (of which I had many). Greg and Carrie were excellent to work with — they are caring, knowledgeable professionals. I would highly recommend them for anyone needing mold removal.
REST took care of a mold problem; we were away for 2 weeks and we had a water pipe break in are bathroom that leaked into are kitchen. They removed all the damaged material and rebuilt our kitchen. The staff is top notch would recommend to anyone in need of mold services.
Rest came to my house on short notice and for the second time they’ve done an amazing job with asbestos removal and got us the clean air certificate the same day. A huge thank you to Carrie and Greg for their professional work!
Mold Testing and Removal
We visually evaluate structures for possible mold contamination and take samples; using this information, our specialists will develop a remediation plan. There are not any mold regulations in Michigan, only recognized international standards to follow. This means, an expert must hold higher credentials to abate a mold problem. We are highly qualified and perform mold abatement in any area of your home or business.
Asbestos Testing and Removal
Commercial & Residential Asbestos Inspections, Testing, and Abatement
Due to federal law, building owners are required to conduct a thorough asbestos survey to protect employees that reside in the building. In nearly all cases, with ALL older buildings, including residential buildings, contractors are required to conduct a lead, asbestos, and cadmium survey before starting work.
Our State qualified people will inspect the property, if a PACM (possible asbestos containing material) is found, we will take the appropriate samples and send them to a certified laboratory for asbestos testing. With some types of materials, we can treat it as an ACM (Asbestos Containing Material) and instead of adding the extra costs for testing, we can just remove the material.
