Moldguys is an *awesome* small family company and I couldn't recommend them more wholeheartedly - I wish they worked in general home stuff and not just mold remediation so I could hire them for all work at my home and not deal with any other repair companies. They did a big job in my basement and cleared out a ton of heavy stuff before even being able to deal with the mold issue and their price was really fantastic, certainly the best I came across. Their hard work and great price is in addition to their really kind way with customers - I work off-shifts and they made sure not to bother me during my daytime sleep hours and were so gracious when I had to ask them for help with things and to move their truck for other contractors. They even helped the other contractors with moving some heavy stuff because I wasn't able to. This brings me to my next point - I have been working with many different contractors lately on various concurrent projects and can confidently say Moldguys were the easiest and loveliest to work with as well as the most professional - they have typed up work orders with a clear breakdown of the work and costs along with when payments were expected..just really appreciated everything about the way they do business. They worked at my home for nearly a week and endured very hot as well as cold rainy weather and just did great work. Lastly, they saved me a lot of money when they pointed out reasons I didn't need to hire a company for additional work on something.. Great people, great company, awesome customer skills, just genuinely wonderful people doing hard work and doing it WELL. Hire them if you want uour job done right by really nice people.

We hired AirSciences to remove mold in an attic space. We had to hire a contractor and get the work performed quickly, as this was required to sell our home. We did not want to just hire any one, despite the urgency of the work. One thing that stood out was the time Daryl took to educate us on mold remediation and the industry at large. He talked about types of questions to ask any mold remediation contractor, things to look for, and potential red flags. His top priority was for us to hire a contractor that met our needs and performed quality work, not necessarily to hire his company. Daryl's quote was on the higher end of the bids. We negotiated the price through changing the mold remover product. Again we stated our needs and he explained what he could do to meet our needs and maintain quality. After we compared 4 companies we decided to hire AirSciences without hesitation. Daryl is honest, reliable, provides top notch customer service and high quality work. He took time to inspect the attic in depth and identify the severity and root of the problem. He met our tight time line. His team installed vents to resolve the root of the problem as well as re-mediate the mold. The majority of the other bids only addressed resolving the mold with less optimal products, without addressing the root problem, and with much shorter warranties. AirSciences warranty is for 10 years and stays with the property, regardless of who owns the house. The other companies warranties were in the 2-5 year range. I highly recommend AirSciences and would hire them again without hesitation.

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.

We had some mold in the attic. Jason examined it and gave us a project proposal. We made the deal. Jason showed up on time to perform the remediation. He came back one week later to do the result test. Again he showed up on time although he had some other project before me. In addition to lab test, he also helped us perform some cosmetic work to the sheathing, which was highly appreciated.

We own a summer home in Rockport, Ma. Shortly after purchasing the home we noticed a horrible musty smell coming from the basement and several rooms in the house. Needless to say we were very concerned about mold and even more so because we have young children with severe allergies. After a quick internet search I came across "Indoor Doctor" and had them come out to do an assessment. Jeff was very thorough in going through the enire house doing a visual inspection as well as air quality testing. I felt extremely confident in his abilities to accurately assess what was going on with our house. He explained everything to us in a non alarming way and told us we would have our results back in about a week or so. Couldn't have been happier with this company! We have since had a mold remediation done (totally separate company) and then installed an EZ breathe system with great results! I would like to add the fact that we had similar air testing done for our home in NY with a different company and didn't have NEARLY the same experience as we did with Jeff! Although he could t travel to NY he was extremely helpful in guiding us through the entire process and telling us what needed to be done (although without expecting extra payment from us!) Very professional but also truly cares about his clients:)

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.

Tyler did an outstanding job on our ceilings for the entire house at a very reasonable price. I also needed some shutters repainted which he included in the price. While he was doing the shutters he mentioned the mold on the fascia boards and that he would take care of it, which he did at no added cost, he also removed mold on my shed, again at no cost. Since we are selling the house I had him repaint the front railings which turned out great!! Tyler is very, very meticulous and takes pride in his craftsmanship. He is a very polite person as well. Do not hesitate to hire him!

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.

    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.
