Moshe was fantastic! He is extremely knowledgeable. He took the time to examine the quality of my existing grout, and fully explained the best process for my tiles. He even provided a free demonstration! I had other companies provide proposals, but none of them as experienced, friendly and skilled as Moshe! He did a phenomenal job! He cleaned the tile grout in my entire house, and two white couches. I highly recommend Moshe. Professional, kind, skilled!

I spoke to F & S Carpet Cleaning,explaining that due to a leaking side wall on the enclosed patio, my wool carpet 8 x 10 was soaking wet. Chris explained what needed to be done to do a proper steam cleaning process. Within an hour two men came to pick up the carpet. I was very impressed with Andrew and Jean who came to pick up the carpet. Andrew again assured me and explained the process,cleaning,drying,etc. Within four days my carpet was returned looking new after the process of cleaning and taking out the mold was completed. I would definitely recommend them to a friend. Josephine Tierney

Manny is the most honest guy I have ever met. I base this opinion on the following true story. I was sure I had mold in my home due to a leak in the roof and a serious odor in the house. When the roof leak was repairedI asked the roofer if he smelled the odor in my home and he stated that he did smell it and it was obviously mold and that I should call a professional as soon as possible because the mold could spread throughout the house. The roofer also told me to be prepared to spend upwards of $10,000 for remediation. After the initial shock, I accepted the inevitable and checked Thumbtack for companies that remediated mold. Within 10 minutes 3 companies responded and after checking which company had the best reviews, I chose to call Advanced Microclean, and spoke with Manny. I explained that I needed someone to come and remediate my mold. He asked me why I thought I had mold. I explained my situation, leak in roof, bad odor, roofers professional opinion. I was taken aback when Manny told me "From what you are describing I don't think you have mold". Huh!! As bizarre as it sounds, I spent the few minutes trying to convince Manny to come and rid my house of mold, all the while fully realizing what the expected cost would be. After a few more minutes of me urging Manny to come and take my money, he asked for my address and said he would be there in about 15/20 minutes. As I waited for Manny to arrive, I called my BFF and explained the phone call I had with Manny and we both decided that this guy had some racket going on, he first feigns not believing I need remediation and then when he comes to my house he hits me with a telephone number estimate. I was ready and waiting for him so I could tell him I was onto his racket. Manny arrives promptly. First impression.... friendly honest looking guy. Hmmmm!... I then proceed to show him where the leak in the roof was and ask him if he can smell "the quite obvious mold odor." He looks me square in the face and states, "I do smell an odor"[I say to myself OK, here comes the pitch]... Manny continues..."but that odor is not mold!" Huh? Manny asks "where else do you smell this odor?" He then proceeds to check my master bath, master closets and checks any leather goods I have in the house. Spends about 30 minutes checking. He states, "Nope, as I first suspected, NO MOLD! "Still believing there had to be mold, I then called a company to come and check the air in my home for mold spores and have it sent out for analysis. The next day the company called with results...No mold in the house. I now finally realize what racket Manny from Advanced Microclean has going on...it's called HONESTY! Quite rare in south Florida! Thanks Manny.

We just bought a new home and while removing an old mirror we discovered a horrific mold Infestation. We called MRT, a team of two people came in within 3 hrs and took samples needed for our insurance claim. They were very educated and explained us in great detail about the whole process and really calmed us down. I highly recommend using MRT for any mold testing you need, these guys are true professionals and know they’re business!!

A friend of mine recommend International Mold company to me for mold testing after I mentioned I saw some dark growth under my kitchen sink. I called the company and Ed (owner) came to Orlando, on time as promised, and did an inspection and testing. The lab results came back with a small amount of mold that he could take care of. While working he noticed a small leak from the garbage disposal and he had that repaired as well. The whole operation took about 3 days. Ed did a good job and explained everything he was doing along the way. I would highly recommend his services to others.

      We called Ernesto for a mold test after a tenant reported visible mold in our rental unit. Ernesto was responsive, punctual, and extremely professional through the entire process. His communication was key in a situation like this where a tenant is involved. He was able to calm them down, communicate the entire process, and follow up. Would definitely recommend.

      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.
