The Housing Hour -Aired 8/25/2012: Master Dry


Part 2 of Mold and allergen Control:

Our guest is Josh Smith of  Master Dry. Master Dry was started in Knoxville, TN in response to the overwhelming problems associated with crawl spaces. There have been more and more complaints of allergy symptoms due to the mold growth on floor joists in crawl spaces. Master Dry is a responsible basement waterproofing, crawl space moisture control, and structural repair contractor in Tennessee and Kentucky.

They use state-of-the-art basement waterproofing systems and basement waterproofing products to keep your basement or crawl space dry. They also specialize in basement and crawl space dehumidifiers, carrying the SaniDry Basement and Crawl Space Air Systems.

Join us to get all the info you need to keep you house and family free from mold and allergens.

The last segment of our show we have the President of the Tennessee Chapter of Families with Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is a motor neuron disease. The motor neurons affect the voluntary muscles that are used for activities such as crawling, walking, head and neck control, and swallowing. It is a relatively common “rare disorder”: approximately 1 in 6000 babies born are affected, and about 1 in 40 people are genetic carriers. The Tennessee Chapter  offers support and understanding when it is most needed. By phone and networking, Families of SMA staff and members are here for you.  They provide invaluable support and services to patients and families affected by SMA. These include medical information and equipment, local community support through our vast volunteer network, regular publications, and an annual conference.

The Housing Hour – Aired 3/10/2012


We spend the hour with one of the most experienced Home Inspectors in the Country.

Jack Feldmann fields your calls and discusses all things HOUSING!

Jack has been in more crawl spaces and more attics then anyone I know! Jack’s experience and knowledge comes through loud and clear and does a remarkable job helping us understand even the most complicated issues. Jack is The Housing Hour’s Inspector Advisor and we are glad to have him. Do not miss this weeks show!
We also have the opportunity to talk to Mike Prowell with Medic Regioinal Blood Center about the urgent need for donations and how we can help! Medic is a non profit entity and they sell blood the all of the hospitals in our area. Having donated blood before I am in absolute awe of how they operate. They have such incredible staff that make it easy and make you very comfortable. They are true professionals and they make what is a very serious issue manageable and they give hope to a lot of potentially hopeless people. Mark, our co-host has done an incredible job with our new good will segment and it is beginning to be my favorite one!
