I'm was in the process of selling my mother's home after her death, when I discovered mold build up and dampness on one of the dinning room walls. Paul Messa was contacted and immediately arranged an onsight inspection. He evaluated the problem and his team was at the property the next day to start the mold removal process. The job was completely handled to my satisfaction, with no issues. All I can say is thank you to Paul and his team, not only for correcting the mold issue but advising me on further property issues, for which I employed his team agin to rectify.

MasterTech was so easy to work with. They were able to provide a consultation within 24 hours of requesting service. Additionally, the mold removal was done completely and thoroughly within the time requested. ALSO, the tech cleaned up a water leak that my AC was making and was kind enough to turn off my AC to prevent the leak from continuing. This company went above and beyond. I'm so thankful I chose them and I will recommend them to anyone in the future. Hopefully I won't need any further mold removal.

I hired AvantaClean to replace a water-damaged ceiling in my kitchen and remediate the black mold caused by the leak. I was impressed by his clear explanation of the steps he was taking and the thoroughness and care with which he attacked the mold. The project is not yet finished...the area is still being decontaminated...so I can't post pictures of the finished project yet. I apologize for the orientation of the photo. This is not usually a problem for me!

Country Boy Roofing offers a GREAT solution to the ugly mold and even thick moss that grows on roofs. They washed my entire house (roof and siding) and made an older ugly roof look almost like brand new and brought the vinyl siding back to a consistent color too! All at an affordable price by a company that works hard to service their customers exceptionally. Highly recommended!!

Had a flooring job done for my kitchen. I had very old vinyl replaced with multi colored natural slate. It took approximately 4 days to complete. Mike and Eric did a great job and were punctual. They also disposed of all my old flooring and cleaned up well when they left. They were very thorough and made adjustments as they went. They also tiled all the way behind the appliances, which no other contractor was planning to do. Price was reasonable and did not change even though the job got more and more envolved because the old flooring took longer to remove than expected. Mike was very detail orientated and made sure the job was done. I would do business with again.

I would highly recommend Michael Kurz and his company Four Leaf Restoration. Michael was very professional, he answered all of our questions and concerns and gave us best quote from 4 different companies here on Thumbtack. Michael took great care of our home while he and his crew were working and did an excellent job on all their work. Michael took care of our mold needs including encapsulating, fogging, cleaning, removing, and other types of mold remediation. He was able to accommodate our schedule and finish earlier then expected. Great guy, great work.

I am an employee for a construction company that works on high end residential homes. One of our projects, that we were working on over the summer, presented us with some substantial water issues due to condensation in the lower level (basement/crawl space). There was such an amount of this moisture accumulating, that it was dripping on the floor below as well as absorbing into the structure above. Through this scenario, we could've been faced with replacing some pretty expensive hardwood flooring on the upper floor as well as having to pay for an extensive mold remediation on the lower level. The technician, from Water Damage Solutions, that came to assess our situation was extremely knowledgeable in his industry. He knew exactly what to do and wasted no time in executing the plan he laid out to us. Through an extensive setup up of dehumidification coupled with air movement, this gentleman was able to lower the moisture level in the problem area. As a result, we were saved from potentially having to address much bigger issues that this water could've caused. I was also very impressed with level of honesty and concern from this technician. That's an attractive quality that isn't always promised in today's work force. Truly grateful for the work that Water Damage Solutions performed for us and I would definitely recommend this company to anyone facing issues of this sort!

We had an issue with mold in our basement after broken duct work went unnoticed for some time. John was very quick in coming out to give us a quote. We had received quotes from a few other vendors as well, but Advantaclean's was by far the clearest and most detailed- we understood exactly what they were going to do to handle the mold and prevent the rest of the home from being exposed. The team who carried out the remediation was prompt and professional, everything was taken care of in a timely manner. We were very happy with the service and have already referred friends and neighbors to Advantaclean.

    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.
