We had black mold (aspergillus) in our master bedroom closet from a leak in the roof. Darren from Rite Way responded immediately to our request for a quote. He was courteous, professional and efficient - talking us through the procedure every step of the way. Darren left no stone unturned - he made sure to inspect anywhere there was a possibility of mold. He had to remove several sections of dry wall to kill mold between the walls. He recommended a top notch drywall professional to replace the damaged areas. We are now mold free and can't say enough good things about Darren and Rite Way.

Scott arrived promptly at 9am. Extremely friendly as if we had known him for years. We walked the house and discussed the problem areas that I was concerned with. He is very knowledgeable in carpet cleaning and maintenance. He was able to remove all the pet stains but a few that were really bad but even those are much lighter then before. Our carpet looks great, almost brand new again. I'm extremely happy with is service and will be working with him again. Highly recommend.

I smelled a musky smell in my house. I had another company come out that was unable to locate the source. I was nervous because my youngest daughter is chronically ill and has no immune system. Trying to find the cause I called Jeff with puroclean, explained to hi! My situation and be was out same day. He found the source which was mold and was able to work with my insurance company to resolve the issue. Jeff was compassionate, caring and new his stuff. I can't believe how much o e company cared. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone. Thank u Jeff and puroclean for helping my family get our mold under control.

Mr. Adams contacted me once I made the request on thumbtack in regards to my concerns about possible mold. We were in the process of installing Bamboo flooring when we were informed that we may have possible mold. We arranged a time for him to come to our home to do an initial evaluation. When he arrived he did inspection discussed everything with my husband and explain the process. He was able to give us a timeframe of how long he thought it would take and what the job would entail. He made every effort to accommodate us due to the fact that our availability during the day was extremely limited. He was able to finish the work in the timeframe that was given. He was extremely professional and courteous. I appreciate the fact that while he worked although my husband asked a lot of questions he answered them all and educated us both on mold. He was extremely professional and cleaned up as he worked. I would definitely hire again and recommend him to anyone that needs mold inspection. The professionalism was extremely appreciated and meant a lot. I also want to say thanks again for answering all the questions my husband ask. Great job highly recommend him and would use his services again. 😊. P.S even my son says "Yeah head really good at what he did". 👍🏼 Barbara Nelson

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.

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.
