Airdrie business owner to appear on HGTV program

Local business owner Jerrod Iverson will appear on renowned Canadian contractor Mike Holmes’ television program Holmes Makes it Right this coming week.
The episode will air on Oct. 29 and will feature Iverson’s work on the flood-affected homes in High River that were devastated by record flooding in June.
Iverson’s company - Iverson Inspections - was hired to conduct air quality tests at four properties in the Montrose area in High River nearly four months ago after the town was ravaged by flood waters in late June.
The connection to Holmes’ television program was made because the four properties that Iverson was working at were Lifestyle Homes, which is a Holmes Approved homebuilder.
“Lifestyle (Homes) does a background check on the companies they hire for this work so they’re making sure that they’re not bringing in some unknown company,” said Iverson.
“They made sure that my credentials were in order before bringing me in.”
Iverson spent about four hours filming with the crew at Holmes Makes it Right while he conducted air quality tests to check the flooded homes for mould spores.
The work itself wasn’t anything new to Iverson as he has been doing this work for over five years. His home-based business in Airdrie has been open for a little over two years and he said he was thrilled with the promotion his company gained through appearing on Holmes Inspection.
“This is a big step for my company, it’s always nice to be recognized and to get a bit of promo,” said Iverson.
“Lifestyle Homes is a reputable company and Mike Holmes is a respected and recognized person in this industry.”
While in High River, Iverson wasn’t just working on set with the Holmes Inspection crew; he had other non-televised jobs, including a 45-unit condo.
His company is based out of Airdrie and takes jobs all over Southern Alberta within a 200-kilometre radius.
