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 had a toxic mold infestation that Lee was able to identify and treat. Lee Maglanoc says what he will do and then does what he says. He is a complete professional from introduction till the work is done. Several family members were breaking out in hives and skin irritations prior to Lee's mold treatment. Since the job completion everyone has all these issues have cleared up. Lee Maglanoc is highly recommended.

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.

*DEFINATELY*DEFINATELY*WITHOUT DOUBT-I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY !!! My daughter recently bought a home that unfortunately had a severe mold problem. She had several companies send her quotes along w/a few companies come out to her home & give her these OUTRAGES quotes. Needless to say she finally asked for my help, after many more OUTRAGEOUS quotes I myself started to feel discouraged w/how soon we'd be able to get the job done. Long story-short I went W/Az Extreme as they were the more affordable company & we all know a severe mold issue is not cheap. I must say i felt as though i paid the best company in the world to handle this mold issue. We got amazing customer service, Damon was very thorough w/his inspection. The camera, tools & gadgets he used for mold inspection & for air quality test were foreign to me prior to this day. He walked us through every little thing he did & explained repeatedly w/patience as my daughter wasn't fully comprehending. Damon did an outstanding job w/this mold issue that my daughter now sits in her home w/her family so content & happy it's as though there was never a problem. Thanks to Az Extreme- Damon for your great prices, outstanding service, exceptional communication & guarantee that I'm sure we won't need. But mostly for my daughter's smile when she walks thru her front door. You're AWESOME !!!

About

There are many companies out there that provide mold testing, but few that specialize in it. Usually the people that provide this service are restoration companies that take tests on an estimate to prove a problem exists or a home inspector that may offer it as an add on service. Since this is the only service we provide and we cover so many areas, we are confident that we have seen more lab results from mold testing than anyone out there. We like that we get to help people solve problems in uncertain situations. Most people come to us because they have never dealt with a mold problem and are looking for advice. Since our testing is unbiased people trust the answers we give them and we really like that.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.

Can mold grow behind drywall?

Mold can grow behind drywall, in your attic, in the basement, under floors — mold can grow anywhere. The key to controlling mold is controlling moisture and water. If your home has been exposed to excessive water due to flooding or heavy rains, if you have an old home with leaky pipes, or if you live in an area with high humidity, you need to be vigilant about mold. Mold is most easily identified by sight. You may see blooms of mold on furniture, on walls, or along the floor. If you can spot mold, you probably don’t need to test for it and can save on mold inspection costs and direct your energies towards mold remediation. But if you’re not certain, you may need a pro to help you determine whether you have hidden mold. Scent and illness are two potential signs of hidden mold. You may smell anything from a musty earth scent to a foul stench, and you may experience respiratory problems, nasal and sinus congestion, eye irritation, nose or throat irritation, skin irritation, problems with your nervous system, or aches and pains. The national average cost of mold inspection and testing is $250-$300.

How long does it take to get rid of mold in a house?

You can never completely remove mold from your house; a small number of mold spores will always exist indoors and are a natural and helpful part of our world. However, if water or moisture is left unchecked inside your home and mold begins to colonize, it can pose a serious health risk. Mold remediation can quickly and safely remove a mold infestation from your home or office. Depending on the size of your problem, mold remediation might take anywhere from one to seven days (or more) to wipe out the major sources of mold in your home.

Mold growths (colonies) can establish within 24-48 hours, so it is important to act immediately if you have a water spill or leak — especially if you live in a hot or humid climate. If you are past the point of DIY and need professional help, mold remediation teams will come to your location, assess the extent of the mold problem, identify and rectify all water leaks and sources of dampness, identify all mold sources (both visible and hidden), use specialized equipment to contain and prevent migration of mold spores, safely remove contaminated materials, treat infested areas with approved antimicrobial sprays, dehumidify and dry the appropriate areas, and seal areas as needed.
