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.

They did mold remediation and reworked the crawlspace in a home we were selling. And the work was done quickly, on time and efficiently. Would happily recommend them to anyone doing this type of work.

Tim did a great job! He had to deal with a less than nice tenant and was able to take care of everything professionally in a less than hospitable atmosphere! This was for mold remediation.

Square Soft was available immediately (versus a week out at earliest for every other company I called). They had great reviews, so I went with them. Their mold inspection and remediation services were very thorough and satisfactory. I also verified that they are certified to perform mold remediation on iicrc.org. All interactions with them were pleasant, professional, and prompt. Very glad I went with Square Soft!

Mark with Genesis Home Solutions really made me feel comfortable with his quote and his advice. He didn't rush our response or push for extra services. Would say I would use again but don't want to jinx myself with needing to 😀. However, I will definitely recommend to anyone needing mold remediation.

These guys are as good as it gets, and I don't say that lightly... they removed the water from my entire basement within 2 days and they were able to dry it out without any mold growth.

The Remediation Team did not have to perform any repairs at my house. Which is exactly why they earned my 4 star rating-by being honest! Instead of telling me to spend $800-$1000 on our chimney, they said we simply needed to have our gutters cleaned and this would stop the water that had leaked through front of our fireplace. My husband had a broken hand and had not been able to clean them. Once we got that completed, the leaking did not occur with the next rain.

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?

I notice my daughter was getting really sick when we were in the home. We have been back and forth to the doctor. I noticed a leak from the ceiling in her room. I got a roofing company to inspect and replace roof. I called out KICK to inspect and test for Mold. We end up having mold issue in attic and spores in the home. KICK perform remediation and removed mold from our home. They were very professional and did it half the time and they were affordable. The tech was certified, very knowledgeable. We ran a final test and it was a BIG difference. We actually breath a lot better in the home. If you are reading this please call KICK to take care of your Mold removal. Great Company! Great Recommended!

I was in the process of selling my house when I realized I had a BAD moisture/mold issue in the crawlspace. Steve Woodward came highly recommended by my roofing contractor. I couldn’t be happier I made the call. Steve arrived to my home at our agreed upon time and explained my issues in detail. Steve worked with me on the price since this was not covered under insurance. He was always courteous and professional while onsite and kept me informed through every step of the process. At the end of the job Steve presented complete documentation of the work performed with before and after pictures. The crawlspace looked better than new. I was extremely happy with the entire process and have recommended Steve to all my friends and family for water and mold mitigation.

I’ve had mold inspections done before and have never seen one as thorough as this. Daniel found the mold that I knew was lurking in this home and he did what needed to be done to remediate it. He was a pleasure to do business with and was extremely knowledgeable and professional. I would highly recommend this company.

Calling Eric Morris was the beginning of resolution for the biggest challenge we have experienced. We discovered through a routine duct cleaning that we had mold in our duct system. Obviously that warranted further investigation. We called Eric and he came out to test our home. We assumed he would secure air samples , send them to the lab and call us with the results. And of course he did. But that was simply routine and Eric did so much more. After getting the air samples , he inspected our entire home with a special focus on areas around the vents where air was blowing that was infected. He discovered more mold and proceeded to swab personal items , furnishings, etc - all that ended up being positive for various molds, including the dangerous black mold that he recognized. In an effort to remain transparent he wouldn't recommend a mold remediation company, but he guided us thru the process, taught us how to interview them and explained what to expect. Upon completion of the remediation- Eric came back for a post remediation assessment and found that we still had mold in some areas that were not properly treated. We finally finished the remediation and Eric checked in with us regularly through the remediation process to see how we were doing- as it was a difficult time and we had to move out of our home for three months. Eric is extremely knowledgeable, empathetic with clients in this situation, charges fairly and over delivers. He always follows up, is accurate in his assessment, very professional and a pleasure to work with. Debbi and Phillip - Roswell, Georgia

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.
