Curtis responded very quickly to my thumbtack submission. He came out to our house and inspected it for mold. He said that our central air vents needed to be cleaned out. He did the job a few days later. He was quick and clean. The price was very reasonable.

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!

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.

I can not say enough good about this company. Patrick is an amazing person. He came to my home to do a mold inspection for a refinance on my home. He is incredibly professional and arrived within 24 hours of our initial conversation. He tested my property and found no issues. He wrote a report for me and emailed me with it in record time. I luckily did not need his services but feel completely confident that had I needed a mold removal Patrick is the man for the job. I HIGHLY recommend this company. You will not regret working with Patrick. Look no further if you are in need of honest, professional, timely and cost efficient services.

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.

Services performed: mold remediation throughout the whole house, installation of a vapor barrier on dirt basement and bathroom demolition. I cannot say enough of wonderful things about Lonnie and his work. He went above and beyond his job description, and we were extremely happy with the results. In addition, not being from the area, we needed a few more things done around the house and Lonnie helped us get in touch with some of the other contractors in the area. Lonnie is an honest, hardworking individual who does what he says. I would highly recommend Lonnie and AMH Inspections to anyone.

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:)

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.

Ray and his crew showed up on time and did a fantastic job on the mold remediation in my attic with plenty of time before we had to close. He explained the process in clear and concise terminology so I could understand what was being done. I would recommend him for any home improvement job. Bill M.

When I called New England Remediation, I talked to a very knowledgeable woman. When she came out to my house, she was very personable. When the workers came out to do the mold job in question. They were very cautious of my floors where they were walking and they contained the room that they had to work from so nothing got out into the air and spread through out the house. They cleaned everywhere they had been when the job was complete. I can’t say enough for this company. I will use them again!!!!!

Our experience with Indoor Environmental was a 5-Star experience. I highly recommend them. I called IE after reading their great reviews. We had found a mold issue in our basement and needed it to be addressed ASAP. Jake from IE came on time, thoroughly explained what work needed to happen and provided an estimate. They did a great job at the projected cost and on schedule—and later tested to make sure the mold issue was addressed. (It was). We have a large house with lots of the typical repairs popping up. Working with Jake and team was clearly one of the top, most impressive experiences we have had. Jake goes above and beyond what is expected—which can be hard to find these days.

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

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.
