Called almost immediately when I requested service. Came at the agreed upon time. They did a decent job, but there were some corner areas that were still left with dust and there were a couple areas that had drywall clumps in the carpet after identifying them to the cleaners. But... I know the corners are probably hard for their equipment to get into.

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 his crew were fantastic! He took the time to do an evaluation in person and explain what needed to be accomplished, even if I didn't select him. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and was able to accommodate my schedule. His crew was on time and worked hard, completing the job in the required timeframe and now my crawlspace is mold free and looks brand new. Even my real estate agent was so impressed with the job that he plans to use Sick Building, Llc. for his future needs. And the 10 year warranty proves that Anthony stands behind his work for the long term. Will be recommending his company to anyone needing mold removed.

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.

Well I have a house that I'm constructing and began to acquire mold in my 2000sq ft crawl space. Square soft (Barry) came out and looked at the infected space and gave me a timely estimate the same day as he said he would. The price he gave me to do the job was right on my budget. Other than getting lost thanks to the way my address is set up which leads the gps in the wrong direction Barry arrived in a timely manner. Barry and his crew came out started and finished the job in the same day. Barry was nice enough to send me pictures during the process due to me having to be at work during the process. Believe it or not I never physically seen Barry face to face due to me having to work but everything was still handled in a precessional manner via telephone. As I have been in the carpentry field for several years I took the time to inspect his job the next day and was very pleased so with this being said I would be happy to use his services again if needed and recommend him to anyone else.

Mark was wonderful! He was honest and told me that I don't have a mold problem. There is a difference between a house with mold and mold that came because of a dripping faucet. For integrity alone, I would recommend Mark to anyone!

Due to their environmentally friendly process, I requested an evaluation and quote from Nano to remediate a severe mold problem in a bathroom with a tiled shower. I thought the mold stopped there, but the evaluation revealed that my basement, crawlspace, and even my airconditioning vents had mold growth! Nano Environmental eradicated the mold (and odor), provided education on what causes mold, and inexpensive preventative measures to keep it from growing back. I felt like these professionals really cared about helping me get this horrible monster out of my house and keep it out. Nano did all this, without charging me an arm and a leg!!! I highly recommend this company if you have a mold problem in your house. 5 stars.

Exceptional service! I had a small mold problem at one of my rental properties. Mr. Hassan was able to quickly and professionally provide several pragmatic solutions to resolve the issue. In two days the water and mold problem was behind with only a moderate dent to my pockets! Would definitely recommend Mr. Hassan!!

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.
