Hiring Laurence for our project was the BEST decision ever, he truly exceeded my expectations. It was a smooth journey from the beginning. Laurence responded to all of my emails in a very timely manner in a very professional way. We converted a 3/2 house into a 4/2 building an extra bedroom by using existing sqf., painted the entire interior of the house and had him assemble all new furniture items, hang artwork, place rugs and hang drapery. Before we started, he send me a detailed schedule, so I knew what was happening every single day. He showed up on time (always), and tidied up the house every day by 5pm, so when I came home with my son, there was no tools, screws, etc lying around and the mess was kept to a bare minimum. When unforeseen things came up, Laurence always addressed them right away and came up with a solution. He worked with a great team and we are so happy with the results. I will recommend him to anyone looking for a GC and I know we will reach out to him for any projects we might have in the future.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you prevent mold from growing in Miami homes?

The easiest way to stop mold growth is by keeping your home clean and dry, according to the Florida Department of Health. Also, make sure that your humidity levels stay below 60%, and don’t let spills or standing water sit for longer than 24 hours. 

If you have suffered water damage or broken pipes, address those repairs immediately to prevent moisture build-up. But if it’s too late and your home is already experiencing mold growth, contact Miami’s top mold remediation specialists

How common is mold in Miami homes?

According to the 2017 American Housing Survey, there have been several housing units that have reported mold. The bathroom is the most common area for mold to grow, accounting for nearly half of the cases. The bedroom is the second-most common area of mold in Miami homes.

If you think there’s mold growing in your home, reach out to the best mold remediation companies in Miami

How do I hire the best general contractor in Miami?

Quickly find the best general contractors in Miami by searching online and reading reviews. But before you choose a contractor to work on your home, ask yourself what projects you need done. Make a list, and look for a contractor who has a history of successfully completing these kinds of projects. 

Also, make sure your general contractor has credentials. For example, you can look up licenses by searching online

Your last step is to ask for free estimates from several Miami contractors. Ultimately, hire a general contractor who has a lot of experience and favorable prices. 

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

How is a mold test done?

Mold testing can help identify a mold infestation in your home or business. 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

If you suspect there's mold growing in your home, contact the best mold removal experts to get it tested.

What is mold remediation and how does it work?

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.

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. 

Here's 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.

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.

If you think there's mold in your home, contact the best mold remediation experts immediately.

How can I find out if a general contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a general contractor is considered essential in your area during the current coronavirus pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website, which will have information on essential services.

Find information on national recommendations by visiting CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

How do you get rid of mold?

Hiring a mold remediation professional 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.

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.

How much does it cost to get rid of mold?

Mold inspection and remediation costs will vary based on the severity of your mold infestation. But typically, the cost can range from as low as $135 to $1,592.

The total square footage of your mold damage and mold colonization, the accessibility of the areas to be treated, and any demolition and repair work required will all affect how much it costs to get rid of mold. Mold remediation crews may also have a minimum fee for services to ensure their business expenses are met even when they take on small mold jobs.

To find out how much it will cost to remove mold from your home, contact the best mold remediation experts near you.
