They did an excellent job on our off white carpets. They were not able to get the carpets perfectly clean, but they communicated clearly, that that would be the case, given the age and color of the carpets. Even so, they were able to remove more of the stains than others have been able to previously. Because of the condition of the carpets, some had to be deep cleaned, which added to the cost. This possibility had also been communicated ahead. I felt that they were fair, communicated well and did a good job. He was also pleasant to work with.

This company provides Outstanding Service! From the time I picked up the phone and called this company as a referral, I was impressed with how extremely friendly, professional, knowledgable and time conscience they were. Something else that was absolutely amazing is that they listened to what we thought the problem was, made their observation and then went right to work to come up with the solution! Why can't the world return to this type of SUPERIOR service?? This company definitely takes pride in the type of quality work that they are offering customers and we applaud the owner and his team of extremely capable men and women for turning a very stressful situation into an unforeseen circumstance that we could live with and move on from. Thank you Flood Medics for all you do and I will definitely be calling ONLY YOU in the future for any mold, water damage, carpet cleaning or restoration in the future!! 6 Stars for Service, Honesty and Integrity! THANK YOU VERY MUCH FLOOD MEDiCS! We will be recommending them to everyone!! #Flooded Basement #Broken Pipes

Only rating pre-project experience: Raymond Lane has been the first to come see our 'new to us house' that has 3 places of mold in the basement. He took humidity readings and photos of the problem areas and emailed an itemized list of what typical companies could charge for remediating the house then took off a percentage and included a defined cost to stop any further water from entering the house. He emailed me all of his certifications and brought my husband into a home that his company crew had recently finished mold removal in. He also responded to my email inquiring about types of dehumidifiers to prevent the mold from reoccuring. Raymond has encouraged us to check with more companies and offered his support no matter who ultimately does the job.

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.

Both Stepehn and Aaron were awesome during the entire process. They provided repair options after the initial review of the mold area. They were patient enough to wait until I had the primary issues resolved before they got rid of the mold. I will highly recommend them and their company. Was a pleasure working with them.

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.
