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.

We would recommend him to anyone looking at getting their carpets cleaned by a professional, specially if you have pets, kids or both. Thank You!

They did an excellent job of removing mold from our basement after a leak. Mold had also gotten on some of our furniture upstairs and they checked everything in our house and removed mold from all of it. They were so nice and very professional and did quality work in a timely manner. They just returned to do a follow-up inspection and we are still mold free. They always went above and beyond? I would highly recommend this company.

Mike did a phenomenal job taking care of a mold remediation project in our basement. He was honest, timely, and professional and walked us through every step of the project. We had quotes from 3 other companies and he was by far the most thorough, honest, and professional. I would recommend him to anyone!

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.

I had 2 companies to come out regarding mold treatment in my house. I went with Mark and his team. Mark was so kind and professional and his assistant Jody was frequently giving me updates. He even went into detail on what he was going to do, and was a little under the quote of the other company and was going to do a few other things necessary the other guys weren't going to do. My basement/crawlspace look amazing now. So glad I went with them.

We have dealt with water and mold issues several times in the past and it has always been an ongoing nightmare. The residual mildew caused our whole family to become very sick with candida and it took years, even after moving from that house before we finally fully recovered. When our basement was flooded due to a structural problem, I knew it was likely to start a mold problem and it did almost immediately. I didn't want to repeat any of our DiY mistakes and being older we can't afford that kind of health impact again. Nano Environmental is the only service I've found that treats mold and mildew without equally toxic chemicals. We never even had to leave the house - no days or weeks in a motel waiting for the fumes to dissipate. I'm so thankful to have our home back to normal. The whole house is refreshed and we are breathing easier than before any of this started. From what we've learned through all of this, not only do I recommend Jeff and Nano to remedy any serious known issue with molds, I believe every homeowner should have this service done. I never realized how much bacteria and we live with on a daily basis. Do it for your health and the health of your family.

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.

I had Mike Dixon come out to do a mold inspection (one of a few estimates I got for the job). He was nothing but respectful of my time, my actual needs and my home - three things that I did not find in most of the other contractors I looked at. He was super communicative (via text and in person, which was a requirement of mine), did a full inspection of my house to see if there were any other issues that could be causing the problem. And he didn't find a ton of things wrong despite it being a 98 year old house - I expected him to act like a typical contractor and find 19 things wrong that all had an insane costs associated with them. He just made gentle and, again, respectful suggestions of things I might want to take care of at some point. I felt in no way pressured to make any decisions right that second, and he was clear that he would work up fully-broken down set of estimates within a few days. And he did a great job cleaning up the mold for less than other quotes (and I don't always hire the cheapest out there), recognizing that in the land of contracting, doing a good low cost, thorough job in the short term gets you more business in the long term. As a former small business owner, I have a great deal of respect for anyone who understands that basic tenant of good business. I look forward to working with him again in the future on other projects!

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?

Vinyl siding went from green to clean in less than an hour. Look forward to seeing how long the siding stays clean looking with the included treatment. And I can finally stop blasting the siding to get it clean. No ladders required. The future in power washing houses.

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.

Rating is based on the quote only. We had 2 visits by 2 FloodX employees and would definetly hire them based on their responsiveness, clear explanations, professionalism, and price. We were concerned we had a mold issue under our bathroom tile and were given a lot of great information and some relief that the issue was not as bad as we suspected. We had one visit re: a potential leak and then a recommended visit to discuss how to tackle and rid of potential mold, should we find anything down deeper into the structure down the road. Both employees were very helpful and polite and explained solutions clearly. Felt like they cared which is appreciated these days! Thank you FloodX!

About

We are a full service indoor Air Quality firm that provides mold assessments, mold inspections, mold testing and prevention to help protect you and your family from mold! How do you know if you have a mold problem inside of your home? Hiring a Certified Mold Assessor (CMA) to perform a thorough, visual assessment with proper mold test sampling is the best is the best way of determining whether or not there is a mold problem inside of your home. Mold spores are microscopic and are not always seen during a visual inspection and can only be detected through mold testing. Mold growth is becoming more and more prevalent inside of homes across Atlanta due to water intrusion and elevated indoor humidity. Most mold problems are typically not identified until a proper mold assessment and mold testing have been conducted.

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.
