Robert was incredibly nice, personable, and professional. I was concerned about mold in my home, so hired Robert to come do non-intrusive air tests. He was extremely knowledgable, talked me through every step of his process, and really inspired my confidence in his work. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat.

I am currently the general manager of a water damage restoration company here in San Diego County. It is imperative that we work with high-quality true professionals. Ty is exactly this. He shows up on time, understands the importance of getting the job done right the first time, and works well with all of our customers. We use EnviroPure Solutions for all of our asbestos and lead testing, mold testing, along with bacteria testing. I highly recommend them to other businesses or individuals who are in need of quality service.

Previous residents let a cat pee on a rug and failed to take care of it. Kenny of Eco Flood & Mold Remediation was professional and clean and efficient and explained the cleanup process. He followed up and made sure the issue was completely resolved, and even came back at no additional charge and did a second treatment to ensure there was no lingering odor.

Billy was very professional in all aspects. He was able to solve the problem in a timely manner and had my families best interests at heart. As a bonus he was experienced with dealing with insurance companies. Sometimes companies like Mr. Flood Fixer get one chance to get the job done. I will surely spread the word to all my friends knowing Billy will be fair, on time, and will stand behind his work. Thanks Again for saving the day! Jesse Sinclair

    We had a commercial kitchen remodel, Mr. Solis found hidden damages behind wall, it turned out to be mold. Mr. Solis and his team helped us remove the mold and helped us design a new kitchen for our community room. We are so happy we hired FCB and definitely recommend Mr Solis as a contractor.

    We had a pipe break in our house and had different traditional mold remediation companies come in to fix the mold problem that had happened because of the water damage. The companies we found were expensive and not very sensitive to our situation. Luckily my husband found AES. They were less expensive, prompt, knowledgeable, kind and careful in treating our home. They warrantied their work. Our home is clean and mold free. I will and have recommended their services to anyone. Thank you AES!!!! Sincerely Sally C.

    I called Steve on short notice for a mold inspection on a house purchase. He was very courteous and knowledgeable. On the day of the inspection he arrived early and began the inspection while explaining every step. I would definitely recommend Steve to anyone looking for a mold or house inspection.

    I recently woke up to standing water in my garage from a broken water heater. My first call was to a plumber and from there I was recommended to Water Mitigation Specialists. They came to my home quickly and made me feel at ease immediately. They were able to save my belongings and only do minimal damage while removing drywall and insulation. The guys were professional and so knowledgeable, they even helped me with my insurance claim. They were diligent about taking all precautions against any mold growth and told me how to prevent other water emergencies in my house. I can't recommend their services enough!

    After a phone chat, I sent Mr. Duin an e-mail outlining the projects I had in mind. I asked him to help me select those that fit into my quarterly budgets. Together we selected three that needed attention this winter. 1. stabilize a wobbly 6 foot block (gate) wall that was inches from a gas main, 2. Build a short block wall that would hold back dirt from a muddy embankment, 3. Reinforce a swaying wood fence and wrap metal posts with cedar – box style. Mr. Duin and staff did an outstanding job of listening to my needs. I was impressed with their work, quality of materials, work ethics and attention to detail. They were very pleasant to work with and I look forward to our next round of projects. I hope to include the trim/molding (with up lighting) along the ceiling of my front porch which will have to wait until early Spring – due to budget considerations.

      Krista with Superior Mold Testing was excellent when she came to our new home just after purchase to check a weird smell we had been wondering if it were mold or not. Krista came in with a friendly smile, great communication skills and look professional. Krista did her tests around the areas we were most concerned with and was very thoughough. We got the results back very fast and learned that it was not mold and we had nothing to be concerned with, except the smell of course. LOL:) We highly recommend you call Krista for any mold testing needs, she was fantastic!!!

      Trustworthy and well known in the water damage industry. We have had a few family members that have also used their services for floods and mold and they had nothing but good things to say. They are very good at removing mold on many different surfaces. I like that they always respond to customer questions immediately. A++ service.

        A 5-Star Company. I was so relieved when Flood Doctors were at my door within 30-minutes. They were great! They cleaned up all the water from my washer that flooded my laundry and kitchen. Their equipment and vehicles were extra clean and I could tell that they took pride in what they do. My home is now dry & mold free. Thank you Flood Doctors!

          We had a first rate experience with Precision Mold Testing. We had had some water leaks in our house over the years and were concerned they could have caused mold. In addition, there have been Internet and TV coverage on mold and corresponding health issues that heightened our concern. After looking at other websites and making calls, we chose Precision Mold Testing - and what a great choice!! First - we liked Precision Mold Testing's website - very straightforward and helpful without being overwhelming. When we spoke to Ken he was very helpful in educating us and answering all of our questions. And on top of that they are very competitively priced. When Ken came to our house, he didn't try to oversell what should be tested, but recommended what should be tested and why. He thoroughly looked throughout the inside and outside of our house and not only indicated potential problems, but precautionary suggestions as well. I should also mention the day he came out was one of the hottest days of our year - 90 degrees plus, and he had no complaints and didn't compromise our inspection to get out of the heat. The tests were done in a day or two and he walked us through the results so we understood exactly what they meant. The good news is we didn't end up having any problems but the testing experience would have been superb regardless. We would highly recommend Precision Mold Testing.

          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.
