Greenside is an exemplary company and I couldn't be more impressed by Eddie and his crew! They were very courteous, efficient, and professional. Eddie was very clear on price and services provided and there were NO HIDDEN FEES!very refreshing. After the work was done, he went over the bill again in detail and answered any questions we had. I will use Greenside from now on and will recommend them with the utmost confidence. This is a great reflection of the type of quality companies I have found using Thumbtack.

Shegun was very informative. He took his time answering questions. Always seemed very concerned for our well being. I did interview other mold remediation companies but my instinct kept taking me back to Shegun. I would hire him again because he is there to satisfy the customer no matter what it takes. Be honest with him with any concerns and you will have the same experience I had.

I had a somewhat simpler move (only needed five pieces of furniture moved), and while it was a smaller job than they typically take on, they were willing to work with me and came up with a very fair price. They showed up on time (actually a bit ahead of time), finished the job efficiently, and communication was excellent from the very first message--an email that came to my inbox within a few minutes of my request--until completion of the work. Overall, I would highly recommend this new but seemingly reliable company. I know it's easy to hire companies who have been rated 100s of times, but these guys work hard and deserve your business if you're willing to give them a chance.

I'm a Realtor out here in L.A. I have a real nice listing, it's a 4-plex, built by Charlie Chaplin. During the last storm (Dec. 2015) the ceiling feel down inside one of the units and we could see moisture in the wall of another. Call it luck, but an agent in my office just sent out an memo to all the other agents letting us know about a mold removal company she had used and want to share their info. It was perfect timing, because I had to find a company to take care of the mold issue, for the out of town owners. Anyways, I called Green Home Solutions and spoke to the owner, Eiton. He was very knowledgeable and helpful answering all my mold questions. Well, I met with him at the property. He was on time. He evaluated the situation, told us what it would take to remove all the mold and gave us a cost estimate. I can't say enough about how professional he was and how expertly he took care of our mold situation. He cam out several times, had it tested several times and his fees were very reasonable. I am totally satisfied with the job he did and so are the tenants. I will defiantly refer him to anyone I know that has a mold problem. I have used other mold removal companies in the past and I have to say, Green Home Solutions, is by far the best. Don't hesitate to call Eiton. He's very easy to talk to. Anyone that reads this and would like to talk to me about their work, feel free to call.

We had a major issue at our house and they showed up immediately and were able to fit us into their schedule right away. We felt totally comfortable leaving during the day and having them work at our house while we weren't there. Very nice guys and highly professional. They were very detailed in their explanation of what was wrong and the potential mold issues. The other company that came by didn't seem very knowledgeable at all about mold compared to RestoKleen.

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.

    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.
