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.

    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.

    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 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 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!!!

      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!!!

We test and monitor the HVAC system/s, electrical outlets, lights, main panel, plumbing drains, water pressures, overall structure of the home, and roof condition. We also do temperature readings around windows and doors for draft or un-insulated areas. We look for mold and areas of leaking as well.

      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.
