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.

My husband and I recently moved into a house that was a foreclosure and the guest house had a strange smell. Even though we completely re-painted the walls, ripped and replaced the old carpet, ran the faucets, we couldn't figure out where the smell was coming from and it was very frustrating. John came out to our home to take a look and he was very knowledgable. He made suggestions about the steps we should take in getting rid of the smell and finding out where it was coming from, concluding that the gist of the smell was from underneath the stairway (in an un-vented closet). It also might have been combined with the fact that we put new carpet on the stairwell which had a new smell to it. Because we've only lived here 2 weeks, he recommended to wait and take some steps (de-humidifier under the stairs), airing out the place on a cool night when the humidity is low outside, etc. I'm happy to say that the smell is almost gone, and I probably would have spent hundreds of dollars on mold testing with another company, when it really wouldn't have helped or was not necessary. Granted, if the smell is still here in a few weeks and I sense that something still isn't right, I will be calling John to take further action in doing more investigating and perhaps testing. I'd highly recommend him.

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!!

Josh is the BEST contractor that we have ever hired. He made the whole experience of dealing with mold remediation an extremely smooth process. From our first meeting with Josh, my husband and I were impressed and knew we wanted his company to handle our problem. We were right. He was always available to answer questions and in a most patient and informative manner. He had many suggestions and always made us feel like we were very important. His crew was always on time, respectful, and good at what they did. We definitely recommend ERC Restoration if you need that type of service. They were beyond our expectations.

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.

I have worked with Mr. Ryan Gross multiple times and I am 100% convinced that he is the friendliest and kindest person I know. Not to mention competence, which of course is the most important quality a company/person can have. I would give this company 100 stars if I could and I do recommend them to anyone in need of a true product with their mold handling.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 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.

    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.

    Can mold grow behind drywall?

    Mold can grow behind drywall, in your attic, in the basement, under floors — mold can grow anywhere. The key to controlling mold is controlling moisture and water. If your home has been exposed to excessive water due to flooding or heavy rains, if you have an old home with leaky pipes, or if you live in an area with high humidity, you need to be vigilant about mold. Mold is most easily identified by sight. You may see blooms of mold on furniture, on walls, or along the floor. If you can spot mold, you probably don’t need to test for it and can save on mold inspection costs and direct your energies towards mold remediation. But if you’re not certain, you may need a pro to help you determine whether you have hidden mold. Scent and illness are two potential signs of hidden mold. You may smell anything from a musty earth scent to a foul stench, and you may experience respiratory problems, nasal and sinus congestion, eye irritation, nose or throat irritation, skin irritation, problems with your nervous system, or aches and pains. The national average cost of mold inspection and testing is $250-$300.

    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.
