Wow! Nail'D It is fantastic! We used them to buff out our wood floors - stairs and top of stairs and they came out even better then we could have hoped! Other flooring companies tried to tell us we needed the entire flooring re-done and would cost thousands, but not Nail'D It! They are an honest, transparent, company that strives to deliver the best quality and service around, and for the best prices! I even suggested buffing the entire floor and they said No, you don't need it! VERY HONEST PEOPLE!!! If you want fast, efficient, quality, service, and NOT be ripped off, call Nail'D It!! We couldn't be happier, THANK YOU!!

I am very happy with the detailed report from Jenny Luca and the way she conducted the Mold Assessment on my apartment. She came on time and explained every thing she was doing and kept asking me questions relating to the reason for the job.

Communication was a struggle through the entire process. Constantly was being told one thing than another would happen. Showed up 2 hours late on one visit and an hour late on another visit. Was promised a follow up test to assure mold was gone, never got one. Eventually did get a follow up but no air test was done just additional spraying which I appreciate but I wanted to know the rest of my house was free of mold. Also was told that I would be helped step by step through the process to make sure mold is gone. That didn't happen either. A few other empty promises were made as well that didn't get followed through. I can't say I have absolute peace of mind after the remediation, and when you hire a company for remediation that's exactly what you're shooting for. Green Home unfortunately fell short proving that in my experience. Overall, disappointed.

"They are professional, curious and reasonably priced. They are also very good to their staff. I am now using Green Restoration LLC on a consistent basis and would recommend them to someone looking for a mold remediation.Very affordable and the quality of work is very impressive. We were very surprised how fast the job was done. We hired independent mold inspector after they finished the job and he asked if we had a mold at all :) . We had 3 positive tests from the lab . Thank you very much "

Richard was great to work with - a true professional. He was very responsive over email and was able to come out to provide an inspection very quickly. He took the time to walk us through the mold problem, explained how it happened, and offer solutions for remediation. We would highly recommend him.

Ian and his crew have helped us out with properties we manage by coming over promptly when we've needed them to clean up some very unpleasant situations, including raw sewage backups. I know I can call Ian, explain the problem, and leave it in his hands to make right. They've also addressed mold issues for us and are our go-to firm to handle a slew of dryer vent cleanouts, when required by condominium complexes that we work with. When finished with a job, they clean up well, so that you barely know they were there. Ian provides detailed invoices with full explanations of work done. Prices are reasonable. A genuinely good guy to work with and someone we've come to rely on. Robert A. Lubeck, Broker-Sales Associate/Property Manager, Woodward Properties, REALTORS. Summit, New Jersey.

We did a mold remediation project with Kahlil from TKOR, and he (with another gentleman) did a great job overall. At first, both of them came for a free estimate, and they gave us very reasonable price and also sent us a clear itemized estimate with all the specific jobs clearly listed. During the job, they performed the itemized jobs as promised, and cleaned up everything including the trash nicely. Overall, we were very happy with the job done by Kahlil, and we would give our highest recommendation to TKOR without any reservation.

Chris and his team are amazing. I have used several mold inspection companies in the past along with mold remediation companies and this was by far the best experience. From the start I was pleased as this was the first time I used thumbtack. Chris responded to my request that Saturday Night which was a pleasant surprise and from there I provided all the details. With a mutual agreed date he sent his manager, Justin, to our house. He was as polite and professional as can be and knowledgeable. A later date was set for sampling and discussed which tests would be best. Chris personally came and took the samples and he was as polite as his manager that he sent. In the end, I have spent years researching this industry due to a health condition, and know when companies are trying to nickel and dime you compared to actually helping. They were surprised with how much I knew, but from the start they were honest and upfront making them the right choice to come out to my place for help. This was by far best experience given circumstances. It takes great customer service for me to leave a review and this one is well deserved. Thank you Chris, Justin, and your team for your efforts and going above and beyond with helping.

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!

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

Mark Bendit came as scheduled and was thorough in his assessment of the mold and testing for water damage and eased this owner's mind when he kindly explained the process of filing my claim. He even spoke with my insurance agent. I would recommend this company very highly.

My apartment appeared to have mold in my bathroom and I was lost as to what I should do- I am a tenant renting a place and heard all different stuff. Spencer gave me his honest opinion, giving me the background into similar mold problems and suggested that I do not need work done giving my move soon. It is comforting to hear this from a free conversation. If I ever do mold work in the future, I would definitely feel comfortable using Spencer and his company.

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.
