If you have a home restoration problem and you're looking for someone to tell you what you want to hear, you might have come to the wrong place. But if you want the straightest, most thorough and accurate assessment of your situation and what it takes to fix it RIGHT at a great price, then you should be talking to JC's Restorations. After they did the mold remediation on my home in Marietta I had the pleasure of visiting their company and seeing first hand how well equipped and state of the art their resources are. I KNEW I had chosen the right company to solve my problem. Not that there was ever a doubt. From the moment of our first contact, my dealings with James and his company were a comfortable, competent pleasure... no smoke, no mirrors, just hard facts and solid technical advice followed by fast service and impressive follow-up. JC's Restorations, Inc. gets my heartiest recommendation. And the next time I have a restoration problem, they'll get my business, as well.

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?

The water line to our fridge popped off and we didn't realize it until the hardwood boards under it were cupping and mold was growing. The kitchen and one other room was affected and we were assuming a long cleanup and repair process. We found Rapid Restoration thru a neighborhood review site and we are so glad we did! After inspection they found that the damage had traveled into our kitchen cabinets and one other room. First of all, their response time is amazing. Every phone call, text and email had almost immediate response. They showed up on time, and were courteous and professional. Their time estimates were spot on, with the exception of one contractor, however Drew jumped in and resolved the situation. The workmanship was top rate. Drew went out of his way to allow us to continue to use our kitchen appliances as much as possible thru the whole process. I can honestly say it was the best experience we have ever had with a home contractor. We love our new kitchen and would recommend Drew highly.

    I had water damage in my home and called Global Restoration. The crew arrived in a timely manner and were very polite and professional. I was concerned about mold but the guys from Global put me at ease and had everything cleaned up and disinfected. They even did the rebuild on my house which was a huge plus because the process was quicker and it looked better than it did before! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

    Mr. Martin performed a home inspection for me and I must say I was extremely impressed with not only his professionalism, but his breadth of knowledge as it relates to his craft! He not only responded quickly to ensure I wouldn't exceed my due diligence period, but he was also generous enough to answer all of my questions asking the way! His focus was great customer service, coupled with a thorough inspection! All I can say is thanks a million sir... if ever someone asks for a GREAT home inspector, rest assured they will get your name and number from me...

    I received a very detailed report (31 pages) and cate and mark walked me through a few things they noted about the property before the left. Report came to me 24 hours later. A little disappointed Mark was unable to physically get on the roof due to ladder height but he did examine it via binoculars and provided feedback. Overall, great work and the services are little more pricer than some other companies but great feedback and knowledge given both in the report and to you.

    I WORK FOR YOU ! The most important thing to remember about home inspections is that your inspector’s job is to find defects for you. All homes have defects. Time, use and nature cause deterioration. Major appliances such as furnaces and water heaters wear out. Most defects are minor deferred maintenance issues. Sometimes defects are major, but almost all defects can be fixed. Your inspector’s job is to help you understand the extent of the defects so you go into closing fully informed. When you are buying a home it really is all about you, your family, your safety and your security. My role in your process of buying a home is to clearly and concisely document the condition of the property making sure you understand the condition of the property as clearly as can be documented from a non-destructive inspection before buying it.

    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.
