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.

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

Testing for mold in our finished basement. James arrived early with everything needed to get the job done. Performed the tests, explained possible contributors to mold and simple preventative measures. He even checked for carbon monoxide when he saw a potential problem with our furnace and hot water heater exhaust piping. I should have asked more questions before scheduling to ensure I knew what the costs would be based upon how many samples were taken and overall what the process was like. I was attempting to get mold testing done as rapidly as possible, which James was great at. Actual results took longer than I expected, but we were pleased overall.

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!

We had a simple pipe leak behind the wall in our laundry room, which caused mold under our cabinetry. From the moment Raymond arrived, I knew I was in good hands. He quickly got to the source of the leak, with minimal disruption to the rest of the room. He was fast and thorough, but his knowledge of mold remediation really put my mind at ease. Thankfully, he also encouraged me to consider filing an insurance claim. What seemed like a small problem was a much larger one, once we discovered how challenging it is to find a replacement cabinet that matches the old ones. Thanks so much Raymond!

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 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.

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.

    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.
