I highly recommend David and Green Home Solutions. I needed an inspection and quote for mold removal. David responded to my thumbtack request within minutes and inspected my home the same day. He walked me through several options for treatment and his estimate was extremely affordable. I look forward to working with Green Home Solutions.

Dustin finished treating my home for mold today and did a fabulous job. The original estimate was a few weeks ago. I thought about it, did research into other mold removal companies, other approaches and cost of other treatments and ultimately decided to give Dustin a try when the smell was persistent. I removed drywall to check for mold, open the wall for treatment and allow confirmation that the leak was corrected. Dustin was very respectful of all of my belonging in the house, covering electronics to protect them. He showed up on time and was very efficient. I am confident that this treatment will appropriately treat my mold problem. I have already recommended him to others. I will post an update to this review in a week or so if possible with an update on the final results. The cost of this natural treatment is MUCH less than traditional chemical treatments. I definitely recommend giving it a try.

I purchased a rental property and within 2 months my tenant was complaining of a mold/musty smell coming from the bathroom area. I called Frist Restoration after reading some of their reviews and Keith was extremely helpful. He had a tech out to my property the next day! The tech found some mold and moisture issues in the bathroom. He then went to work after explaining to me the whole process and what he was going to do. The smell is now gone and the bathroom is back to normal! Thank you First Restoration.

These guys are as good as it gets, and I don't say that lightly... they removed the water from my entire basement within 2 days and they were able to dry it out without any mold growth.

If I could give over  5 stars, I would.  Mold is scary and you can feel vulnerable when you know you have to rely on others to give you the truth about repairs.  I had what I would call the perfect experience with First Restoration.  I highly recommend using this company should mold be discovered.

We had a pretty bad case of black mold in the basement. Kay and his father were just amazing in every step of the process. They explained each step they'll take in their free estimate and once we decided to go with them, they gave us an update every day in the middle and at the end of each day. The price was good and the work they did was amazing. They were also able to complete the job on time despite the fact that the job should have taken longer once they opened up the walls and realized it's much worst than they anticipated (on which they didn't even charge me more). All and all, they did an amazing job for a decent price and finished on time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

We were very fortunate to have selected G-Tech Restoration to remediate a mold issue in our home. The problem was made even more difficult in that it occurred in a very small basement crawl space. In addition to that, asbestos was found, which resulted in further difficulties. In spite of this, the workers were all very efficient and courteous. Their work was accomplished with as little interruption to our lives as could be, under the circumstances, expected. Don Flandrau, the owner/operator, deserves the highest praise as he demonstrated great knowledge of what needed to be done, clearly explained each step of the remediation process, dealt with the insurance adjuster, arranged for the before and after evaluations of the interior air quality of our home, and, when the remediation was completed, set us up with a contractor who would see us through the restoration of our kitchen; the floor of which had to be broken through to reach the crawl space. Don and his G-Tech staff made a very trying and difficult experience that much easier. We are pleased to give G-Tech the highest possible recommendation. -Stephen and Dorothy Shultz

We had mold in our basement from a leak in our bathroom we didn't know we had. The toilet in our guest bathroom had a very slow leak which over time caused mold to grow. Restoration 1 looked at the problem called a plumber for us and took care of the whole process of removing the mold and contaminated material. Then they restored the basement. It looks great!

My job involved testing for and removal of mold as a result of water leaking from the roof into the office/bathroom area. Mario and his team were prompt, professional and accommodating. I would not hesitate to use his services again or to recommend him to others (which I have already).

I am so happy that I chose Chris and his company to help me with my mold problem. He was very professional and was very helpful. He provided me with the right information to get my house taken care of and remove the mold. I am very pleased with his professional service. He genuinely cared about the safety of my family. I understand why he has 5 Star Google reviews on his profile. I will definitely recommend his service to anyone looking to get work done the right way. Thank you Chris, my family and I feel much more comfortable and safer!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
