About Clean Slate | Experience, Proven and Trusted | Remediation Contractor

About Clean Slate

Gary Fairbank, the owner of Fairhaven Environmental & Clean Slate, has been a contractor for more than 25 years beginning in 1993 with lead paint and asbestos removal services. Fairhaven was the very first mold/indoor air quality professional contractor on the mid-shore of Maryland.

Gary experienced one of his best friends passing away from MRSA, and knowing lead paint has been banned a hundred year earlier in parts of Europe, he wondered what they were doing differently. After reading a newspaper article comparing medical infection rates between the United State and Europe, he found that Americans had a medical infection rate 100 times higher than our Northern European counterparts.

In addition, Gary lost his father and sister in 2017 by exposure to environmental hazards. He hopes that no other person nor family should experience loss through something that can be prevented.
