Darren from RiteWay was super helpful. Highly recommend RiteWay. We had just closed on the house and the day after when we stopped by, the neighbor pointed to a spot on the brick that faces his yard and told us that black mold was growing. I panicked because we had just closed and black mold was never disclosed on any of the documents. I started looking for experts and Darren was the first to respond. I explained what happened and he showed up on Monday. He told us that it was not black mold, but mildew that grows on brick. He inspected the bathroom and found no signs of black mold. The whole thing was false alarm, but I am grateful that he showed up Monday morning, inspected the area and charged us nothing. He was very informative and explained that it was just mildew. Best news ever.

Mr Chambers has been our "go to guy" for ALL our remodeling needs and emergency "fixes" since 2009. The work A1 Handyman Home Improvements completed for us included painting,carpet removal, laying wood flooring, custom made valances, rehanging a fire door to the garage and refurbishing our screen door. To include interior decorating advise, in an effort to modernize our modest older home. Noel is expeditious,reasonable with price quotes and detail oriented. He takes great pride in his work which makes for us, a quality product! He was open to feedback and maintained a true sense of accountability and professionalism during his services , which added to our customer satisfaction. In the past ,when he saw something that needed fixing, (during his contracted work), he brought it to our attention, and then, followed through with repair. A truly honest and dependable man. I have left Noel and his team alone, with full access to my home in my absence and NEVER doubted at any time his trustworthiness. We fully recommend him, and look forward to working with him in the near future!

Hired this company to remove Mold from the air ducts. My family and I are very happy with the results. Although my schedule was hectic at the time of service, his team was more than happy to work around it and make sure it was done in a timely fashion. Prices were affordable and I can't tell you how generous they were in performing the service.

I hired EPS based on the reviews and the fact that Steve (the owner) was at my house within an hour, gave me a very fair price, compared to what others had quoted me. He started on the work immediately. He removed all of the mold in my outside bathroom and replaced all the drywall. He was so friendly and actually listened to my concerns. I will definitely call him again and fully recommend him for any water or mold issues you may have.

When I noticed black mold around my air vents, I called DR Mold. Ryen thoroughly explained the process, reassured me about the quality of the product, and took care of my problem with 1 fogging. Ryen is professional in all aspects -- appearance, timeliness, and results. No high pressure sales, but excellent results.

We had Mold growing in our Bathroom due to a small water leak (it had been leaking for who knows how long). Ray from Coast to Coast Restoration was able to not only completely remove all of the mold from the area, but left our house cleaner than expected and smelling fresh as ever. (They also cleaned our 12 year old wood fence and made it look like new.) He and Rob were very friendly and genuinely cared about our family. They provided us with the peace of mind knowing that our problem was taken care of. We would definately use Coast to Coast again.

      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.
