Performed mold inspection and remediation within a weeks time to north side of my attic. Was performed quickly and to the agreed upon manner (sprayed behind incorrectly installed insulation from previous remodelers work). They also advised on fixes to perform, so the issues don't come back.

Had an appointment today for Jeff to come inspect possible mold in our bathroom and he never showed up, I left a voicemail and a message for him and no response. I find it to be very unprofessional when no contact is made saying you will be late and have to reschedule as I rushed home from work to make sure I was here when he said he would. Lost my business.

Communication with Joe was excellent, timely and clear. Mold remediation was performed in attic, along with a couple other minor places. Work crew was friendly and knowledgeable and performed work as agreed, explaining what they were doing and why. Would readily recommend them to a friend.

Estimate came in lower then others, which both excited and worried me about the quality of work. However, Andre was very knowledgable, and his crew was professional and experienced. I am impressed by the work that was done, and the experience that it was to work with Mold Removal Chicago. I would hire again.

We were moving an old refrigerator to make room for a new one and discovered the wall behind it was covered in mold. After realizing we couldn't clean it, we came to Thumbtack for quotes. Within minutes we were speaking with Moises from Nu-Gen. He came out on Monday at 10, tested the area and discovered that it was luckily contained just to the surface and not in the air. The drywall was removed and we now have an air-scrubber running. I'd like to thank Moises and Nu-Gen for taking care of the problem quickly and affordably!

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.

We had the pleasure of working with Atilio Bernhardt as we had a mold issue and extensive water damage. Atilio was very responsive and delivered commercial grade air purifiers the same day we contacted his company. Atilio and his crew completely eliminated the mold and were able to effectively treat the water issues as well. Atilio delivered outstanding customer service as he was punctual, professional, and thorough. We are very appreciative of the results and would not hesitate to recommend Bernhardt Resoration Inc. again and again.

      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.
