When we were selling our house the Realtor said we should have new carpet installed ( because we had pets). The prices I got for new carpet installation were outrageous so I googled and seen where Centric Cleaning had videos removing tough stains from carpets. We had them do the whole house and even the Realtor selling our home was impressed. House sold within one month of being on the market!

Perry arrived on time and was very professional. He asked good questions that helped define the problem better. He then went about systematically to correct the issues. He brought all the tools he needed to fix and address the issue. His tools were top notch and he knew how to use them. In our case, we had water in our basement and we needed to understand how much of the basement had been impacted by water. He was able to test the drywall, insulation and wall studs. From the work he completed we knew exactly where the water had compromised the walls. This allowed us to surgically go about removing only the compromised materials which saved us lots of money long term. I give Perry my highest recommendation and will certainly hire him for future jobs.

Buying a home can be stressful but buying our home was overwhelming. The home I bought ended up having mold and water damage throughout 3 floors. All of the damage was discovered on the night before closing, after extensive rains in the area, exposing the longstanding water and mold issues. I attempted to get help and quotes from multiple big name companies. These companies were only able to offer me long waiting times for assessments and quotes only to fix the damage, not the cause. Hugh from Jacobs ladder was one of the 2 people who showed up the day I called, and the only person able to fix the cause of all my problems. The repairs for the damages were done through a negotiated insurance claim through the agency selling the home. I don’t deal often with insurance claims and it all seemed over my head. Hugh helped me negotiate the deal, explaining in detail what was being asked, offered, and done throughout the 2-month long project. I never felt like I was being mishandled, lied to, or ripped off. My personal background makes me distrusting of people. As a veterans wife, I have been a single woman and single mom while he was deployed. During those times, I have been the victim of sales targeting because of my lack of male representation, but Hugh and his teams respectfulness and honesty put all my fears at ease. The number one thing I appreciated about this business is that they do exactly what they say. Their actions spoke louder than all that was told to me. The team employed by Hugh was always respectful of my family, my time, my home, and even my pets. I never felt like I had to stay and babysit to be sure my property was safe, or that work was actually being done. If there ever was a miscommunication Hugh or his team were always happy to explain things to me until I understood. I never felt like I couldn’t ask questions or that my presence was a complication, which I have felt dealing with other contractors before. Hugh was present throughout the entire project as an active participant in the work, not just a figurehead boss showing up occasionally. Hugh and his company took a devastating situation and made it manageable. From the help managing the insurance claims, which he did seamlessly, communicating with all the parties in the process, which he did efficiently, to understanding the codes for the area, which he knew immediately, to reconstructing the damaged property back to normal in a timely manner, all of these things were done in a fashion that left me feeling assured. I am beyond happy with the finished product and had it not been for them we would have had to walk away from this home. Before them, this house was not livable. They saved our dream home and made it better, safer, and healthier than before. It is refreshing to see an honest company that does exactly what they say; I would recommend them to anyone in need of repairs. I am a volunteer reference for Jacob Ladder disaster and recovery contractors, I receive no benefit from this reference; I give it because the end product and experience was excellent. I give permission to allow all photos of our renovation to be used and would speak to those in need of a reference to use this company.

    Everything went smoothly from scheduling the carpet cleaning to paying when he came to the house. I was very impressed! He text me when he left and sent me a picture showing a before and after image from the cleaning. I can't believe how different it looked when he was done. I would definitely use BioClean again.

    Mike is an exceptionally professional home inspector. His knowledge reaches far beyond the classroom hours required by the state... with his personal investment properties, he has repaired just about everything you can think of that might go wrong with a home. When an issue is discovered, Mike is also great at explaining the underlying problems to his clients in a way that removes quite a bit of fear from the situation. Once they understand why the problem exists and how to effectively make repairs, clients feel much better about working with the sellers to find a fair solution. As a real estate agent, I have had the pleasure of working with Mike for several years. He is my Go-To Guy! I not only recommend him to clients, but also use him on all of my personal inspections.

      Our home inspection company has used Mike and First Impression numerous times. We don't use mold remediation companies for testing because it is illegal in Kentucky to have the same person do testing and cleanup. We have Mike test homes to determine where the problems are, then we use a separate cleanup company. Mike also tests after the cleanup for clearance. That's how we keep it legal. A lot of mold cleanup companies want to make money on testing too, or want you to skip testing so they won't be accountable. We've used Mike many times, and call on him as soon as we see a problem. Since he's local in Lexington, he gets to jobs quickly. He provides a detailed lab report and a pass-or-fail letter for us.

      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.
