About 25 years ago, I was introduced to a natural mineral product called Deodoroc.  This was way back when the green industry was still the Wild West and there were thousands of so-called "green" home goods.  But this product was special.  This is when I learned all about zeolites and the natural abilities they have to help clean and maintain our homes.  Today, we interview Trevor Mullins, who's family created Deodoroc many years ago. I know you'll enjoy this conversation.

You've all heard me say that no project ever goes perfectly smooth. Mother Nature can drop 10 inches of rain.  Sub-contractors ignore your request to use the healthier product.  Folks, these things happen all the time. It's not a question of 'what if', its a question of 'when'.  So when the time comes, it requires quick action by the homeowner and/or general contractor to make sure things get back on track.  Jay and I give some current real examples of this and how they got successfully resolved.
