About Us


Marty Katz founded Five Boro Mold Specialist in February 1989 with one main focus at heart: setting the standard in professional-quality mold inspection and mold abatement services. Starting at a time when minimal information was available regarding mold growth, Marty Katz spent extensive time researching mold, its various causes as well as the means necessary to effectively remove it. Growing increasingly frustrated due to the lack of inspection tools and remediation materials available to him, Marty Katz ventured on a journey creating innovative solutions in mold inspection equipment, including particle counters, infrared thermography as well as HEPA Vacs. During the process, Marty Katz carefully hand selected a group of trusted individuals experienced in the mold field to invest his time and efforts in perfecting their skills. These professionals would eventually grow to be the expert team at Five Boro Mold Specialist and over a decade later, are still a part of our company today. Since then, Five Boro Mold Specialist has serviced thousands of clients, performed countless mold inspections and remediations, while gaining the trust of our diverse clientele along the way.
