Genuine, Fair, and as Good as It Gets in His Business
“When I suspected mold problems in my Tacoma, Washington, condo, my sister living in Black Mountain suggested that I call Rick and get some input. During our conversation, Rick spent a good 20-25 minutes explaining some really valuable things to be aware of in my home, suggested what to look for, and shared questions to ask a potential inspector. Rick is a genuinely good guy, a fair guy, and he is as good as it gets in his business.”
Renovating a Historic Home? Rick Knows His Stuff
Rick knows his stuff. I have owned several old houses, and mold is always an issue. My current project, a historic 75 year old Flat Rock home, offers challenges which include mold and ventilation. Thanks to Rick’s recommendations we have implemented the plan to remediate. Rick knows of what he speaks. I highly recommend him if you suspect air mold moisture issues.

Rick’s Recommendations for Do-It-Yourself Home Owner Are a Success
Last October, Rick assessed a moisture problem in the crawl space of my house. It took me a while to apply all the recommendations, but it’s done and the difference is remarkable. The absence of particles and smell is dramatic and such a relief.
Thorough, Calm Approach to Needed Repairs
Rick was fantastic, fast and professional. I appreciated his thoroughness and calm approach to the recommended repairs. I highly recommend A Healthier Home.
Record Speed Assessment of Rental Home Vitality
Professional, thorough and efficient, Rick arrived in record-speed time to expertly assess the safety and well-being of the house I’m renting in East Asheville. He is the expert in assessing a healthy home. I highly recommend him to anyone who is conscientious and concerned with the vitality of the building in which they are living or working. His positive, helpful attitude is a pleasure to experience.
Sick House? Rick Makes House Calls and Solves Healthiness Issues
Rick’s analogy of a house as a patient illustrates that our home is living organism that operates best when certain conditions can be maintained. And Rick’s comprehensive expertise on this matter makes him the family doctor. He offers a broad and clear understanding of “home health” issues. His dedicated, patient bedside manner is great, with plenty of time to answer questions. Plus, he makes house calls! After spending time with Rick walking and crawling through our home, we felt greatly reassured that our issues could be managed and reversed. We’re excited by the prospect of a house in much better “living condition” than it was before our problems started. Thank you, Rick!

A Clear Idea About What to Do Next to Help My Sick House
After Rick came out to my house, I can say two things for sure: 1) he knows exactly what he’s doing and 2) I totally trust him. After he was finished, he left me with a clear idea about what to do next. He is still available to me to help with any additional questions I have – and he’s helping me communicate with workmen I may need to help with repairs to my house. This is money well spent!

Considering a Home Investment? Rick Helped Us Avoid a “Money Pit”
We found Rick when we were about to buy a house and were questioning whether or not it had mold issues. Rick’s summation of the house was the main reason we didn’t buy it, and I’m so very glad we didn’t. He caught issues that a regular home inspection didn’t even consider, and basically saved us from investing in something that would have been a money pit!
Rick has just inspected our current home and made useful suggestions about things we never considered. He suggested smaller DIY projects that will help us save on energy and provided guidance for preventative measures against allergens, unsafe workplace practices, and maintaining the integrity of our home foundation against pests. I would highly recommend Rick to anyone who wants a healthier living space and is making a long-term investment in their home.

Rick Bayless Found Critical Issues My Home Inspector Didn’t Find
I loved the service! Rick found issues that my home inspector didn’t find that were critical. I’ve recommended him to many friends and will continue to recommend him! I wouldn’t consider purchasing a home (or renting one if that were the case) without an inspection by Rick Bayless.

Helpless in Davidson: Rick’s Visit to Check Attic Leak ‘Easily Paid for Itself’
I was so helpless with a water stain I found on my ceiling. I knew there was a leak, but where, from what, and what kind of damage or mold did I have? I didn’t know where to begin. I found Rick Bayless on “Angie’s List,” and he had high reviews*.
He performed a careful review of my home, getting into all the hard to reach areas of my attic. He spotted the leak quickly and gave me tips on how to fix it. Should other problems arise in this house, I will call him first. Rick was easy to work with, found problems others missed, and provided me solutions to fix my problems without overpaying contractors. His visit easily paid for itself. I would recommend A Healthier Home to all my friends and neighbors.
