Very pleased with Curtis' work. He fixed our mold problem from a flooded basement. He started right away and was done in about 4 days--time needed to scrub the air and paint surfaces with mold killer. Curtis was super helpful in getting at all the problem spots, even ones I didn't know about, hauling out the furniture, and putting us in touch with others to help restore the room. I couldn't be more pleased. I highly recommend him for mold removal and restoration.

Daryl came to our home to inspect the mold that had been spreading from our basement floor, and up the walls. He was honest and very professional. He also gave us advice other professionals did not which ultimately ended up being very helpful for us today. I HIGHLY recommend this company to anyone needing their services!

Guy was a pleasure to deal with. We had water and mold in the basement. On his first viewing, he diagnosed the problem, explained it, and gave us an estimate. He called the next day and we scheduled for the following week. His crew showed up on time, actually early and since he brought 4 workers instead of 2, finished the job in half a day, rather than a full day. I felt his price was reasonable and would highly recommend his company

I recommend this company 100%! Pat Ahearn was extremely knowledgable. He gave us his expert opinion, offered solutions and the initial consult was of no cost! Customers would easily pay a couple hundred dollars just for the initial visit so we are very appreciative. He solved our old mold smell too. We have kept his business card and will recommend to friends and family! Thank you Pat!

On short notice came to evaluate a mold issue. Discovered no problem with water pipes but rather a situation that could be resolved by cleaning with bleach. Thank you for setting us at ease and also for answering our questions going forward to resolve the issue.

We were in the process of buying a home and did a home inspection. The home inspector told us that there was evidence of mold like substance in the attic and therefore we hired Jason to do a mold inspection. Jason was quick to respond and made himself available on the weekend. He checked the home thoroughly and told us there was no need of additional testing. He did all this for free. Very rarely do you find such honest and genuine people these days. We would highly recommend Jason.

We decided to get 3 estimates for the removal of mold from our bathroom wall and ceiling. All 3 companies were professional. In the end we were just more comfortable with MA Mold Pros and Patrick Ahearn. MA Mold Pros price was a bit lower than the others. They recommended exactly what we needed to have done with no up sell extras we didn't need. We were especially pleased with how respectful of our property they were. They protected the area they worked in and cleaned up ever speck of dust and dirt afterward. They were also able to complete the job in 1 day. I am happy to say we are now mold free. Thank you Patrick & Crew.

Our Senior Center had a sewage back up in our dirt floor cellar, Northeast Water remediation, came right away and sprayed a safe nontoxic chemical to kill any mold and bacteria that might grow there. We were able to open the next day without compromiseing our Seniors health. They are reasonably priced, and called back to make sure we were satisfied. I highly recommend them.

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.

Mike is very knowledgeable and thorough. He was able to explain why we have mold, what we are doing right, and outlined a plan of action for us. We are still working with him and another specialized mold remediator to (1) rid the museum of mold and (2) to take the steps needed to prevent recurrence.

After losing buyers from mold problem I end up having a need to hire a mold company. Chris and his company was easy to work with and was able to remove molds in my house. Super please as the price was among the best around. My house is soon going to belong to another owner with ease of mind knowing it was professionally done by Chris and his company GOAT.

We hired Ray and the crew from Lowell Restorations to remediate mold from our basement. They were courteous, professional, extremely knowledgeable and fast. They removed every item from the basement and cleaned every single surface (walls, beams, floors, staircase). They hauled away all of our damaged belongings and sealed and painted the walls and floors. Would highly recommend them!

Donny Lambert was unbelievably helpful and supportive in helping me sort through a leak from the bathroom above mine. It is going to be a matter of getting reimbursed after a lawsuit, unfortunately, and he provided information and paperwork to back up that process for me. I am in much better shape going forward to present my case after having Bona Fide do their testing and with Donny’s subsequent report. I’d refer them to absolutely anyone who wants to deal with professional, ethical and honest people that you can trust. They don’t remediate any mold levels that are problematic , so there’s no conflict of interest there. Great company! Highly recommend them!

In regards to the mold in my basement and attic. Kerry was very professional and his price for the mold remediation was very fair. I had a few quotes from several other companies, who's prices were very high. Kerry finished on time as he quoted and was detailed on his applications and removal process.

We had Christopher clean the ducts on our old drier. He was great! He answered all of our questions, and replaced the faulty parts right not he spot! I will absolutely use his services for all the other vent work that needs to be done at our house or at my studio.

    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.
