Recently had Mold remediation and water damage looked at, and work done on our house by ProCare Restoration. Our adventure started out with a Sump failure in our basement after the big storms last weekend. ProCare was the ONLY company that was able to have an inspection done the day after, all other companyies told us it would be a couple of days because of the back log from the storm. Tim was the young Team lead, who made it by regardless of time to inspect and quote the work on our house. He was thorough, professional, and straight forward. Was almost spot on in his estimate and when the actual work came out a little higher, he still honored the original estimate. Work commenced almost immediately and was done swiftly. I reviewed the work performed and was thoroughly impressed with the immediate and amazing results. Great crew, honest company, Overall some of the best I have been recommended as well as, the one company that does not disappoint in any way! I would highly encourage and recommend anyone looking to have restoration services performed to not just seriously consider but USE ProCare Restoration. Simply put this company is now a trusted business by my family and will always have our highest recommendations!

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.

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!

After 27 years in business I can count on one hand the people I have recommended. I'm going to add Jeff to that list. Extremely punctual, very professional, and extremely reliable. The mold remediation that he did for us was first rate. The attic space that he treated today looks like there was never a problem! I could not be more pleased with his service and his attention to details. We will be using Jeff on any future mold remediation projects. Gary Richardson GS Enterprise

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.

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 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.

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.

Can mold grow behind drywall?

Mold can grow behind drywall, in your attic, in the basement, under floors — mold can grow anywhere. The key to controlling mold is controlling moisture and water. If your home has been exposed to excessive water due to flooding or heavy rains, if you have an old home with leaky pipes, or if you live in an area with high humidity, you need to be vigilant about mold. Mold is most easily identified by sight. You may see blooms of mold on furniture, on walls, or along the floor. If you can spot mold, you probably don’t need to test for it and can save on mold inspection costs and direct your energies towards mold remediation. But if you’re not certain, you may need a pro to help you determine whether you have hidden mold. Scent and illness are two potential signs of hidden mold. You may smell anything from a musty earth scent to a foul stench, and you may experience respiratory problems, nasal and sinus congestion, eye irritation, nose or throat irritation, skin irritation, problems with your nervous system, or aches and pains. The national average cost of mold inspection and testing is $250-$300.

How long does it take to get rid of mold in a house?

You can never completely remove mold from your house; a small number of mold spores will always exist indoors and are a natural and helpful part of our world. However, if water or moisture is left unchecked inside your home and mold begins to colonize, it can pose a serious health risk. Mold remediation can quickly and safely remove a mold infestation from your home or office. Depending on the size of your problem, mold remediation might take anywhere from one to seven days (or more) to wipe out the major sources of mold in your home.

Mold growths (colonies) can establish within 24-48 hours, so it is important to act immediately if you have a water spill or leak — especially if you live in a hot or humid climate. If you are past the point of DIY and need professional help, mold remediation teams will come to your location, assess the extent of the mold problem, identify and rectify all water leaks and sources of dampness, identify all mold sources (both visible and hidden), use specialized equipment to contain and prevent migration of mold spores, safely remove contaminated materials, treat infested areas with approved antimicrobial sprays, dehumidify and dry the appropriate areas, and seal areas as needed.
