Charlotte NC TV Mounting Service Helps Customer With Bats In The Attic Relocate

Bat flying in the air

It was a busy Saturday afternoon around 2pm. When I pulled up to the address, I was amazed to see that I was at the exact same house where an old friend of mines used to live. The condos now named East Coast Town Homes in Charlotte used to be called Westchester Apartments over 20 years ago.

When I walked up to the door, my customer, Rick came outside with a dreadful look and told me he was also waiting for the police to arrive. His rear passenger car window (where his infant's child car seat sits) had just been shot out early that morning while the car was sitting in the parking lot. There was still glass in the car seat when I looked inside. The police came out, wrote a short report and told him to contact his insurance company before leaving. Rick's face dropped even more but surprisingly he kept his cool and even kept his appointment.

As I mounted the TV, I overheard Rick talking to his kids about a serious rodent problem in his town home. He told me he had killed several bats inside the unit and had reported the problem to the rental manager and Charlotte Animal Control, without any help. I noticed that Rick had a small infant in the home who could not possibly defend herself from a vicious bat attack. I told Rick that his town home was infested with a serious problem and that he needed to vacate the premises as soon as possible or risk the possibility of being exposed to rabies. Rick explained that he didn't have the means to relocate after paying the security deposit at East Coast Town Homes.

Exposure to rabies can result from direct contact between a human and a bat by means of a bite, scratch, or even mucous membrane exposure. Histoplasmosis is a disease you get from exposure to bat droppings or "bat guano."

After mounting his tv, Rick realized his sofa was too big to rearrange the room but his reaction was cool as ice. After seeing this, I vowed to do all I could to help Rick and his family get out of his town home. I put Rick in touch with Delene Maybin, the rental manager at Klutts Properties.

I received an unexpected phone call from Rick while working one day. Delene helped Rick and his family find a new place to live in less than two weeks.

Whether it's shot out windows, bats in the attic, or oversized furniture, we never know what life is going to hand us but remember, there is always a light at the end of every tunnel.

If you think you may have a bat infestation or bats living in the attic, call you local Animal Control.

You can learn more about bats living in the attic and rabies by visiting this CDC website...

Bats must not be allowed into your home. Read this article for tips on keeping bats out of your home...

Why You Should Hire A Locally Owned TV Mounting Service

Why You Should Hire A Locally Owned TV Mounting Service

We have been serving Charlotte NC and the surrounding area for the past 14 years. Our services include wall mounting flat screen televisions and concealing the wires in the wall as well as various home theater services such as speaker and soundbar installation and projector and screen placement.

When we began our small business in 2003, we were the first to provide a free wall mount with every installation. We created this idea out of the wide range of wall mounts that our customers were buying. We began carrying a wide range of wall mounts to replace the wrong sizes and types of wall mounts that we encountered, so we decided the easiest way to make every installation seamless was to provide the wall mount ourself. You also save time and money by using ours and thats a win-win.

Over the years, we have seen local and national companies attempt to adopt our idea of providing the tv wall mount for the customer. Our formula still works best for the customer because we are directly in connection with you from the original phone call to the day of the installation, as opposed to a customer service rep who has never mounted a tv in their life. This way, you don't have to worry about a handyman or contractor showing up with the wrong supplies or even worse, no supplies at all. We have encountered several complaints from customers having to reschedule with us after the handyman from a national tv mounting company showed up with the wrong mount or without a wall mount because they thought the customer had it or were supposed to pay for it and wait while they run around town and find a cheap one that day.

Our trucks and vans come fully stocked with wall mounts, cables, anchors, shelves and other accessories so if you have a last minute request or change to your tv mounting service, we can easily accomodate that.

We are easy to find online and social media (@freetvmounts on Facebook and Instagram) and have fast, flexible scheduling. That means if you have a problem with your tv, or require next day service, we will most likely be able to assist.

Our no-fall guarantee and experienced technicians make us the top choice for TV wall mounting in the Charlotte NC area.

Falling TVs Kill Record Number of Kids in the US Make Us Your #1 Trusted Source For TV Wall Mounting and Home Theater Installation


The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) released a report on Thursday (December 13, 2012) that estimates about 43,000 people are injured in a television or furniture tip-over related incident each year, more than 25,000, or 59 percent, of whom are children.
The report also showed that 349 people were killed between 2000 and 2011 by a falling television, appliance or piece of furniture -- 84 percent of them were kids younger than 9 years old. Falling televisions were more deadly, accounting for 62 percent of these fatalities. Last year alone, a record 41 tip-over related fatalities occurred.
The worrisome trends the report spotlighted indicated that three children are injured by a tip-over every hour -- or 71 children per day -- and one child is killed every two weeks.

This blog is to help the home owner choose the right TV wall mounting service and home theater installer for their home in the Charlotte NC area. 

Most homeowners don't have a clue how to properly wall mount a flat screen TV or install a 5.1 or 7.1 home theater system. Purchasing the home theater components like a TV, projector, and surround sound system can be a task within itself. Knowing how to properly install it in your unwired or prewired home is another challenge, especially hiding the wires or wiring and concealing the cables. This is where the professional home theater installer comes in.

I have over 23 years experience in home interior and exterior wiring for homes and commercial structures.
My experience began at the age of 17 when I entered the US Army as a 29N - Telephone Repairer. I learned telephony and communication support, to include home and field wiring and demarcation installations.

After the military, I branched into cellular phone and pager technology. This prepared me for the mobile and wifi / smart home theater technology I would later deal with.

I spent over 16 years installing digital voice over ip phone systems, cable, satellite, audio/video components, computers and televisions in homes and businesses before taking on the gruesome task of prewiring homes. I spent 3 years prewiring new homes, condos, and apartments. I also returned after the drywall was installed to trim the wiring and install home theater wall plates, junction boxes, components, speakers, and other home theater equipment.
After prewiring homes, I have the knowledge to walk in a home and see it as a skeleton without the walls and ceilings, which is a definite advantage over the average handyman-turned-home-theater-installer. This skill coupled with the prior knowledge of extensive home wiring for data, cable, ethernet, TV mounting, surround sound, and more make our TV wall mounting and home theater installation service your best choice.

All flat screen TV wall mount installations (basic and fireplace) include a FREE TILTING WALL MOUNT AND HDMI CABLES as opposed to inexperienced installers finishing the job after you run around crazy for supplies like TV mounts, cables, and wall plates. Surround sound installations begin at only $35/speaker for prewired homes. TV wall mounting services begin at only $99 with the wall mount. 

We sell and install complete 5.1 and 7.1 home theater systems with satellite, ceiling or inwall speakers for a flush, clean look, as well as sound bars with powered wireless subwoofers to help save you money as opposed to shopping at a big box store like Best Buy or H.H. Gregg. All purchases are new in the box and come with a 1-year warranty.

I have seen several home theater installers come and go in just the past 8 years, leaving the homeowner with problems to be addressed by me, the next technician. Many installers use the wrong hardware when mounting a TV, causing it to slowly pull away and fall crashing to the floor. This will ruin your flat screen TV, the wall, and possibly injure or even kill a loved family member or pet! You don't need this unfortunate experience happening to you.

Make the wise choice and choose Charlotte Home Theater / Infinite Designs Home Theater Pros for your professional flat screen TV and home theater installation service provider.

Fireplace and Fireplace Niche TV Wall Mounting and Mount Installation - Charlotte, NC

Fireplace TV Wall Mount Installation Charlotte, NC 704-905-2965

Its seems that everyone wants their flat screen TV mounted above the fireplace.
Nothing compliments the decor of a beautiful home more than a professionally mounted flat screen above the mantle!

We have encountered and conquered just about every type of fireplace imaginable in our home theater experiences, therefore this blog is for you!


Standard exterior wall fireplace TV installations are the most common and most requested. The actual mounting of the TV is never a problem with a flat (fixed) or tilting wall mount. Stud spacing varies above the mantle so we have invented methods to override this problem. Whether your fireplace has standard-spaced studs or no studs at all, we can professionally install your flat-screen TV with no worries! Some full-motion wall mounts require standard-spaced studs and in these situations, the sturdiness of the TV is never jeopardized. If we can't find a custom mount to fit your installation, we will strongly suggest the TV not be installed on this kind of mount because of the possible problems with leverage and constantly moving the TV. As always, we suggest using tilting TV wall mounts over flat (fixed) mounts above your fireplace to reduce eye-lift and neck soreness.

Below are a few pictures of some recent standard fireplace TV wall mount installations...


Many homes are being built with fireplaces set at 45 degree angles. In most cases, we can conceal the cables inside the wall without making unnecessary holes, depending on how the builder reinforced the sides of the fireplace. These installations allow the TV to be seen from a wide viewing angle because of the positioning of the fireplace wall.

Below are before and after pictures of some recent 45 degree angle fireplace TV wall mount installations with front 3.1 surround sound...


Does your fireplace have a hole above the mantle? Some call it a nook, cutout, cubbyhole, niche, TV cave, or several other names. We have heard several horror stories of $150 consultations and estimates going up to $800 for this installation. We have also heard many say the fireplace has to be closed off and reinforced with studs. Not with us! We've found a custom method to mount your TV where it covers this area and looks like its floating in the air! We even hide the components like your cable / satellite box, bluray player, gaming system, surround sound receiver, and sub woofer behind the TV. The complete installation takes about 2 hours and costs less than $300.

Below are some before and after pictures of some of our recent nook / niche / cutout / cubbyhole installations...


Brick and stone fireplaces usually require some kind of surface wire concealing, unless the fireplace is prewired with an electrical outlet and HDMI cable. We take special care with these installations to ensure that you have the peace of mind to let your kids play and sleep under your TV! In some cases, where we have to use plastic wire molding to conceal the cables from the TV, we use textured materials to blend the molding into your fireplace. It's all about ATTENTION TO DETAIL!

Below are some before and after pictures AND A YOUTUBE VIDEO of some of our recent stone and brick fireplace TV wall mount installations...



When wall mounting a flat screen TV above a fireplace, we try to always ask if the customer plans to install surround sound in the room. If so, it is best to have the front 3.1 surround sound speakers (front left, front right, center, and sub woofer) prewired while having the other wiring installed. This prevents us from having to unmount the TV later and saves you money, which is always our aim. We use nothing but the best 16 gauge speaker wire for all of our audio installations.

No matter what type of fireplace you have, when you are ready to discuss having your flat-screen TV mounted, give us a call at 704-905-2965 for a free estimate.
