If not for the honesty of Josh I would have spent about $15,000 for a mold remediation of my Scottsdale home that was not needed. The original company has been proven to be less than honest. Josh reacted with great speed (called Friday, tested Monday) and calmed my anxiety over a nonexistent problem. His company collected double the air samples of the first company & all came back negative! I can not say enough to recommend Josh & his ASAP Restoration company!

The project was black mold on the wall behind my kitchen sink cabinet. GPS came out promptly to give me an estimate to remove the mold and replace the damaged cabinet parts. Once I had insurance approval, (that was what took a week!), they did a very professional job of containing & removing the mold and water damage. The guys stayed overtime to finish and left my kitchen cleaned up and better than new! My claims adjuster said their estimate was "very fair" and their work was excellent.

We found mold in our bathroom and GroundZero definitely helped us clean that up. They redid the plumbing for our bathrooms that were built in 1959 and Nick stayed behind making sure that all the drywall was even and perfect! Thankful he stayed and did that as if it was his own home! Thank you Nick for that and for answering our questions so kindly!

Tennant complained of a musky smell in the bathroom when the shower faucet was turned on. I did some personal inspection and scrapped around shower, but the smell did not go away. I googled mold inspection companies and Thumbtack came up, I filled out the information and within minutes John Evans from adaptive Environmental Consulting called. He listened to my concerns and gave me the preliminary cost for visit. I made an appointment with him and he came out the same day(today). He was very thorough and informative and kind. I'm very impressed with the quality of service we have received and his suggestions on the repairs needed. Again thank you Thumbtack for the help I am a pleased customer. Thank Pastor Daniel V Myers Jr

Jason Riggs and his crew did a great job of determining the extent of the damage caused by a water leak behind the cabinet under the sink in the kitchen island. After removing black mold and termite damaged wood, they rebuilt the cabinet and reinstalled it. Their work was excellent, and all done within one week. I can't recommend Jason enough.

McBride was awesome. Every person involved gave me confidence. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Great price and quality craftsmanship. We had water damage due to poor construction of the original home builder. 32 years had taken its toll and mold was growing inside the house. McBride put a great crew on the project; they took their time, did things right, and walked me through the areas of concern. They also stayed in communication with the mold remediation company so things could be scheduled properly. I appreciated their professionalism and seamless project with no hiccups. We highly recommend McBride.

I had a hot water heater leak at my property about a month ago and I was told from my sister in law that she had used a company called Service Experts that she had found on Thumbtack when she had a leak (water damage) under her kitchen sink, and she stated she had nothing but positive things to say about her experience with this company. I am extremely happy that I listened to my sister in laws recommendation as my experience with this company exceeded my expectations. This company was very knowledgable, honest, professional, reliable, and kind. They made the entire process a breeze and were very flexible and communicated with me on a daily basis so I was aware as to what was going on each day. They not only did the drying out, but they were also able to provide and install a new water heater, as well as they were able to do the repairs once everything was dried out, which made the situation way less stressful since I didn't have to find other companies to provide the other necessary services, they do it all! I would definitely refer this company to all my family and friends as well as use them down the road if I ever come across a similar situation. Thanks for all your help and I couldn't be happier with the outcome of the repairs!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a mold remediation?

    Mold remediation is the process of identifying and removing unhealthy levels of mold that have colonized in a home, office, school or other building. Over time, if untreated, mold can destroy a home by breaking down cellulose-based materials (like wood or ceiling tiles) and causing a slow and messy decay. In the shorter term, a mold infestation can cause severe health problems. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), mold can trigger respiratory problems, nasal and sinus congestion, eye irritation, nose or throat irritation, skin irritations, problems with your nervous system, and aches and pains. Mold inspection and mold remediation are often requested in tandem, although they are two separate services. Nationally, mold inspection costs range from $250 to $300. If mold has been positively identified in your house, either by visual examination or through mold testing, remediation can safely remove it. Properly trained and equipped professionals use specialized equipment (like vacuums and air scrubbers with HEPA filters) to keep mold spores contained while they remove contaminated materials and treat infested areas with antimicrobial spray. A key component to a successful mold remediation after eliminating the mold is ensuring that the water source that caused the mold infestation is also resolved.

    How does mold remediation work?

    Mold remediation can eliminate mold colonies from your home or business. Mold is a normal part of daily life, but in wet or humid settings mold can quickly colonize and spread by making spores. Whether visible or hidden, untreated mold can cause real health problems and cause extensive (and expensive) damage to your property. Mold remediation involves killing the mold, removing the dead mold and preventing future mold growth. Here is an example of the steps involved in professional mold remediation:

    • Contain work area and apply negative air pressure HEPA air purifiers to prevent cross-contamination. If spores spread, the colonies can easily regrow elsewhere in your home.
    • Mist an EPA-registered antimicrobial to suspend and kill mold spores.
    • Remove affected building surfaces.
    • Bag and dispose of contaminated materials properly.
    • Treat cavities/underlayment and dehumidify.
    • Abrasively remove dead loose mold.
    • Apply EPA-registered protective sealer.
    • Perform clearance testing.

    Remove containment materials.

    How is a mold test done?

    Mold testing can help identify a mold infestation in your home or business. Mold inspection costs can vary based on the type of test you want done and the number of samples you request. The national average mold inspection cost is $250-$300. The EPA explains that if you have a visible mold problem, in most cases sampling and testing is unnecessary. However, if you have unexplained and potential mold-related illness or can smell mold in your house, mold inspection costs may be a good investment. To avoid unscrupulous testers, the EPA recommends working with a testing agency that adheres to the analytical methods laid out by professional organizations such as the American Industrial Hygiene Association or the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. Mold inspection costs can vary based on the type of testing done. Prices can also vary, depending on the size of the home, the number of surface areas to be tested, and the extent of the mold infestation. Here are some examples of mold inspection average costs:

    • Swab testing: $200-$300
      • A professional collects a surface swab from a potentially infested area for testing in a lab. Some professionals have concerns about this being the sole test done because it only gathers a small amount of data from a certain area of the house. That’s why it’s frequently done in conjunction with air cell testing.
    • Air cell testing: $250-$350
      • A professional collects an air sample in the home to measure the amount of mold spores in the air. This test is frequently done in conjunction with swab testing to ensure more complete data. Costs are higher for this test because the equipment required of the contractor is more expensive.
    • Both air cell and swab tests provided by the same company: $400-$600.

    How do you get rid of mold?

    Mold is a naturally occurring and important part of our ecosystem. That said, excessive mold can actually be hazardous to your health. Mold remediation is usually the best strategy to get rid of unhealthy levels of mold in your home or office. If you’re not comfortable working with mold or the area is larger than 10 square feet (3 feet by 3 feet), it is highly recommended to hire a mold remediation professional to resolve the problem. However, if you’re DIY-savvy, don’t have any health risks, and are not freaked out by mold, the EPA gives homeowners the greenlight to clean mold areas that are less than 10 square feet. Here are some EPA-recommended DIY cleaning tips:

    • Fix plumbing leaks and other water problems as soon as possible. Dry all items completely.
    • Scrub mold off hard surfaces with detergent and water, and dry completely.
    • Throw away absorbent or porous materials (like ceiling tiles and carpet) if they become moldy.
    • Avoid exposing yourself or others to mold.
    • Do not paint or caulk moldy surfaces. Clean up the mold and dry the surfaces before painting. Paint applied over moldy surfaces is likely to peel.
    • If you are unsure about how to clean an item (art, fine furniture, etc.) consult a reputable specialist affiliated with a professional organization in their field.

    Is mold damage covered by insurance?

    Mold damage may or may not be covered by your homeowner's insurance. Mold damage is caused by standing water and excess moisture. Mold damage can be covered by insurance when an item already covered under your homeowners insurance breaks accidentally — for example, if your plumbing suddenly ruptures and water floods your house, the homeowners insurance will cover part or all of the costs for the plumbing repair and any mold remediation costs necessary as a direct result of the water damage.

    But you may not be able to get insurance to pay for your mold remediation costs if the damage is a result of your neglect — for example, if you’ve had a slow leak under your bathroom sink for years and have ignored the issue. If the insurer can determine that the mold damage is a result of your negligence, they likely won’t cover mold remediation costs. Also, most homeowners insurance will usually not cover mold remediation costs after a flood unless you have a special insurance rider covering your home in case of a flood. To help prevent mold damage, always keep humidity levels in your house between 30 percent and 60 percent, clean up water spills and damp areas right away, and ensure you have exhaust fans in your kitchen and bathroom.
