I have just used the excellent services provided by Green Home Solutions of South Bay, and I have to say that this is the most professional, comprehensive, honest and affordable mold inspection and remediation service I have used thus far (I have previously worked with two others). Eitan Harod was quick to respond to my questions/requests and provided outstanding customer service -- both to me as the tenant and to the property owner I rent from. Eitan's bid/proposal for the scope of work was thorough and reasonable, and the completed job was excellent. As far as I am concerned, this is the mold inspector to use if you encounter a mold issue.

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.

He worked around my schedule which was a plus becuase of my work hours and he helped explain every process in order to take care of this job. i would definitely call him again and highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you Dan and keep up the good work.

I highly recommend Kapak Laboratory for their expertise and thoroughly explaining the process in which a mold inspection was performed at my residence . Sina, who I originally spoke with when I set up the appointment carefully explained the procedure that would be done. Sina came out the next morning and the results were less than 24 hours for me to review. Great Customer service and Thank you Sina !!!!!!

I had the best experience with County Wide Services. They met and exceeded all my expectations. Upon signing up with Thumbtack, they, Stephanie, immediately sent me an email with attachments of their certifications, insurance policy and license number along with a brief introduction and bio of who they are, how long they have been in business etc. Which was exactly what I was looking for if I was going to hire a company. I was more impressed by the documentation she included in the email because it was what I was looking for and I didn't even have to ask for it which to me shows confidence in their knowledge and expertise. After about an hour, Stephanie followed up with a phone call and she was so warm and kind. Listening to me go on about the details of my mold issue. She reassured me that they had 20+ years experience and would take of it and have it all fixed looking as good as new. We set up an appointment and Matt came by to do the estimate. He was very informative and explained in detail step by step the process. He answered all my questions with such patience and understanding. Following was Mark and his crew, they came out proceeded with the process. Mark explained in detail the process and steps for the mold remediation. Everything was handled with such care and professionalism. The whole process took about a week mainly due to the weather. I would HIGHLY recommend County Wide Services. Customer service is AWESOME. The work was AWESOME. I can't say enough about the company. Great Job!!!

This was my first major home remodel, I knew I wanted a licensed contractor and told my dad that he could help supervise. My Husband and I are glad we went with Remodeling Home Advisors as they made the process so easy. They pulled all the permits, scheduled all the inspections and interactions with the city, were super organized when it came to the project itself, and even sent a cleaning crew twice (once during and once when done). I am more than happy to recommend them. With no job too small they are now my go to contractor.

I've had the team at WDZ and BAB help us extensively. When we found a significant amount of water damage and mold underneath the kitchen of our new home, we were devastated. WDZ and BAB walked us through the process and took care of any and all issues. We were so impressed with their work ethic and professionalism we had them remodel our entire house. Hard to find trustworthy and honest people in construction, especially in LA. I would use them again.

    About

    At John Robinson’s Inspection Group, our focus is on the residents of the home first and foremost. Even if the home seller is our client, our primary concern is for the people who will end up living in the home. An inspector’s job is to catalogue and organize those problems in order to report them in an easy-to-understand manner. When John Robinson’s Inspection Group inspects your home, we look for any factor that might affect the health and safety of that home’s residents. We also include problems that might necessitate an expensive repair or replacement.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
