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.

Bill was terrific to work with after our leaking water heater soaked several walls and a lot of flooring. His quick, efficient work prevented what could have been a moldy nightmare. Other trades people should take lessons from him in how to behave in a professional manner towards women. My daughter and I were really impressed.

Oh my! Ron came out to inspect my property and found evidence of a major infestation of rats. He came up with a plan to clean out my attic and crawl space, to replace insulation where needed, and to close off all outside access. On the appointed day he brought a crew of guys who worked efficiently and quickly to accomplish the entire job in one day. They left the house cleaner than when they started and I'm very happy.

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.

    I called Risk Free Serv to perform a free mold inspection since I was smelling a musty smell in my apartment. They were very friendly over the phone and they scheduled a time for the free estimate same day which was great. They came in and performed a full inspection to check if I had a mold problem. They found the seal around the bathroom sink broken and it was leaking into the vanity. Since we caught it early only the vanity doors were damaged and they recommended a simple replacement of the door and they didn't charge us anything. Great and honest company I would definitely call them again if needed.

    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.

      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!!!

        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.
