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.

WATERTOWN, MA 02472 - I was incredibly pleased with all of my interactions with Hamco. Steve is a real pro. He is reliable, a great communicator, and a pleasure to deal with. We ended up handling this particular job ourselves, but I would work with Steve and Hamco at the next opportunity without hesitation. He raises the bar for the contract services field.

I had Daryl and his guys come out to assist with some mold remediation. Not only were his guys along with himself very professional and polite, they went above and beyond expectations. They were truly one phone call or TEXT away from assisting us in any needs we may have. I highly recommend Daryl and Air Sciences to anyone in need of service.

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 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.

Patrick was very responsive and checked in on my humidity level/mold situation often. He completed the work in a timely manner and even let me borrow his dehumidifier for a month until levels were stabilized.

JAMESTOWN, RI Steve went beyond my expectations. He did a free very thorough mold inspection of a house and and barn I was considering buying. He explained everything and told me my options. He also send a detailed estimate promptly. Besides that he went out of his way to help me find contractors who would give me free estimates on work that had nothing to do with the mold remediation I called him for. In the end, the purchase of the property fell through, so I did not have the mold remediation done, but I will definitely call Steve again when I find the right property. I highly recommend NEPS.!

Gave a great price, a good description what he was going to do, good follow-up, and had certification. Not only removed and encapsulated the mold, but did some extras to keep it mold free in the future. Nothing fancy about these guys, just good solid mold remediation quote and work.

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.

The team at DPD Building did a great job. they were up to the challenge when a couple other projects came available during the original work. Completed the work in a reasonable amount of time; used quality materials, even repurposed some materials to push me a cost savings! Their professionalism was the winning factor for calling them for another job if I need one. Great quick work guys!

can't ask for a better small business. We had a mold issue they arrived and assessed the situation. They came up with some fast recommendations and solutions to the problem. Also called for some additional help to assist with the issue. Great company would recommend to everyone.

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!

    we had a mold issue in our attic for some time, we were referred to Universal through a friend, They came out and took a look, told us they could treat the problem, but also suggested to properly ventilate the attic to assure it will not happen again. The mold was removed, and we haven't had the issue since almost a year ago. Carmine G

    Had this company come to my house for a mold inspection. They were great, they found the location of the mold right away and came back the following week to remove it and fixed the issue why I was getting mold. I would definitely recommend them very nice, great work and very fairly priced I will definitely use 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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
