Jud was awesome. He is probably the most responsive and thorough inspector that I have yet to meet, and he charges a VERY reasonable rate. He also got me the inspection report soon after the inspection (and the radon test results too). I will be using him for future deals, and I highly recommend him to anyone else looking for an inspector.

Danielle was great! I had her come and test for mold after a roof leak. She was thorough and responsive. She even found another concern in our attic - the dryer exhaust pipe had not been secured to the exhaust vent when our roof was replaced.

Anthony and Sick Building Group are the best! We were concerned about mold in the basement of the house we just move into. We searched for mold remediation companies on Thumbtack, and Anthony's company was at the top. He responded rapidly to our request for a quote, coming out the next day, and he instantly relieved our anxieties with his experience and ability to answer all our questions. Once they started work, his team worked EVERY day (except Thanksgiving, but including Saturdays and Sundays) so they could finish the project on our schedule. He responded quickly to all texts and phone calls throughout the process. We are really impressed with how clean the basement looks, and we are very happy with the plan we have worked out with Anthony for preventing further mold issues. If you have any mold concerns, Anthony is the only person you need to call.

Dave is knowledgeable, ethical, and does not try to up-sell you at all - in fact we had to push a little to get him to do an extra air sample because it was going to cost extra and he didn't want us to think he was trying to push it on us. He is an overall home inspector, which has its advantages because he can understand the whole picture beyond just the mold and air quality issues, but he is in fact an expert on and specializes in mold detection and other environmental issues, and that is why we hired him. We enjoyed working with Dave.

I discovered mold in the basement of my rental property when the previous tenants moved out. New tenants was scheduled to move in immediately. I received quotes from other mold remediation experts before hiring Aristocrat Air. Tim was professional and courteous.. He gave me a reasonable quote and outlined very clearly what he was going to do. Although Tim stated that his schedule was tight, he was able to quickly fit this job in. Aristocrat Air was efficient, completing the job exactly as promised, neatly and on time! Tim relieved this stressful situation. I would highly recommend Aristocrat Air!Tim Hutchison

After months of dealing with extremely shady and negligent mold companies, I can't tell you what a great experience it was to have Square Soft come in. Since my mold problem had already been remediated (mostly), they were coming in to check that it had been done correctly. Barry came promptly, and was extremely generous with his time and advice (and also gave me a great deal, since I had so many areas that needed to be tested). I really appreciated his professionalism and understanding. Use this place. Seriously

Contacted Raymond late last night 10/27/15 via Thumbtack because My husband and I feel that we need an evaluation of the mold and water problems we have In our current rental house since the issues are not being addressed Timely and properly by the rental company. We have children one of which has allergy induced asthma. He called this morning 10/28/15 next to discuss my concerns of mold and water damage and come out and give me a free report. Unfortunately he will not be able to do the inspection on the property until the rental company gives him permission. He was very helpful in providing information as to the proper steps that I need to take in order to hold the rental company accountable for the problem. He even gave me permission to give his number to the rental company and that he would be happy to talk with them, provide credentials, and do an inspection and treatment recommendation report at no charge. He Talked with me for 30 min this morning even knowing he most likely would not receive any work because of a large rental company being involved! Could not have asked for a better experience! Thank you so much and I assure you if we ever have a mold issue in a home we own you will be our 1st call!

Mark was very personal from beginning to end and got the job done at a good price! In a little bit of shock with the extent of the mold I'd found and in an effort to speed up the cleaning process I somehow ended up getting some eight inspections and quotes from mold remediation contractors initially. Many weren't very personal and didn't do a very thorough job or inspection instead just choosing to throw numbers at me telling me how bad the situation is and wave moisture meters around trying to scare me into signing up with them. They would even talk down about other contractors! All the characters came around. The "scientist" type, the highly emotional contractor who said "Oh my God!" every second sentence and even two "kids" who didn't looked any older than 20 years old, all came round to give me quotes! Mark was intially busy with another job at that time so didn't come into the fray too early but did offer me support and clarity by phone on who was full of BS and who had their cards held correctly. Being that I appreciated Mark's rational and down to earth approach I offered him the job and, once he finished up his previous job, came over (from the other side of town too!) and finished the job with two guys in less than two days and at half the cost of what the others were going to charge! The smell is gone. The moisture is gone. Do yourself a favor and call Mark. You'll be glad you did!

Hassan took care of everything when we found a leak under the kitchen sink. He determined the damage was not as severe and the sheet rock and insulation below the could be dried/treated and did not need to be cut away and replaced as was quoted by other water damage remediation companies. Hassan moved fast to get the equipment in place and really saved the day coordinating a plumber he knew to fix the cause and kept me informed the entire time about what to expect. I would recommend Hassan and I will be keeping his number. I will post before and after photos when I get a chance so you can see the work.

Steve was very customer friendly from the beginning. He provided me with all options up front the best he could do to the uncertainty of the damage. He was accessible whenever I had concerns or questions in regards to what I was being told by my insurance provider. He was big on not disrupting me and family as much as he could. His team was amazing also. They never left things in a mess and were just as customer friendly as Steve. He made this experience a real good one do to I'm allergic to mold and I'd never experienced anything like this before. If I was to ever experience anything like this again, I'm contacting this company. So glad I didn't go with Serv Pro. Nothing like customer reviews to assist you in making a big decision. Got a water or mold issue call Steve and his crew?

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.
