I have found Bill Chafee of OneCall2 to be honest and well qualified in mold inspection and removal for several reasons. I've had 3 appointments with Bill Chafee and each time he arrived on time or early for our appointment offering his best smile. He listened well and responded to each of my questions articulately. Another mold inspector (Shegun of Pure-r Space) had told me I had wet mold under my hall bath which he determined by drilling a hole in the wall and using a cable cam to take photographs which he said would be in his report. I called my insurance company and an inspector came out and was waiting on Shegun's photographs and report to proceed but the photographs were not forthcoming. Suspicious, I told Bill Chafee of my plight and he performed his own inspection using thermal imaging and visual inspection. Bill Chafee's report stated: “Nothing was found, other than calcium deposits from concrete No water stains to indicate previous damage, and No microbial growth (mold).” He allowed me to view in the hole to see for myself once he determined I would not be exposed to mold. He provided photographs of the area to me the next day in a professionally-written report of his findings. Bill Chafee commented on the kitchen mold removal performed by Pure-r Space saying: “ It is clear that the IICRC S500 guidelines for the removal of mold was in violation. Example,complete containment area of work, to include a clean room. not topically treating visual mold before removing contaminated ares, not aspirating affected wall and fogging behind with an anti microbial in order to treat mold spores behind the wall, thus limiting the possibility of spreading mold spores through the entire house. Proper conduct of mold remediation should have been. contain area, with a clean zone, use Hepa filtration to evac contaminated area. topically treat exposed area, aspirate wall fog with an anti microbial, molded materials are considered hazardous waste and should be double bagged in industrial waste bags and disposed of properly with waste management. After remediation was performed, a clearance test with certification should have been performed and a final clean of all area's cleaned with an anti microbial cleaner.” I now understand why my lungs feel worse after the kitchen mold treatment procedure by the other company and wish that I could go back in time and have chosen OneCall2 instead and had my mold removed properly. I am so glad Bill Chafee inspected the hall bath area and found it did not need treatment before I acted further believing the other company's claims of wet mold. Also, a flood company confirmed no moisture in that area by thermal imaging. I have learned the hard way the importance of making sure that any contractor hired is currently licensed in good standing, certified, and insured. Bill Chafee's current qualifications are California Gen B 987118, IICRC 150594. His certifications include water, odor's,and microbial remediation, lead (state) Masters certificate in Goldmorr remedial products. I am grateful to know Bill Chafee of OneCall2 and recommend him for the reasons stated above.

I called Nico to clean the carpet in my livingroom, diningroom, and hall areas as well as my bedroom in a small house I rent in San Gabriel. He arrived earlier than expected and the job was done with the carpets partially dry in some areas by the time I arrived to the house an hour later It was a very hot day . Temperatures were in the 90's and my husband had the overhead fans blowing. A few hours later, the carpets were completely dry. What impressed me about the service was that Nico was helpful in answering questions I had about possible mold and even stuck his head under the house to check it out. He checked out my vacuum and gave me pointers on buying a good vacuum for the future. Nico was very helpful and the job was done and the carpets dried in record time! I really liked going through thumbtack. It made the process so much easier and everything was professional.

I've owned my home for 23 years and have hired many contractors in that time. Justin Hardman, is the hardest working and honest contractor I've ever hired, I will recommend him to my family and friends. He removed old falling down drywall, replaced it, taped and texture coated my whole garage, it came out looking good. Also, Justin left my house very clean.

Fantastic work! I had, had some stains removed from in out living room. I'm talking about these stains were completely gone and out of sight, nowhere to be found gone! We had a coffee spill in another room -- also gone! The entire job as a whole was just beautiful work. The crew was professional and just pleasant to work with. Best of all, when they left, they did not leave my carpets soaking wet for days and I have experienced with other carpet cleaners. I don't know how they do it, but it's magic. Thanks.

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.
