Ed was professional and a delight to work with and I would hire him again. Our basement was a mess after a long, slow leak left destroyed basebords and mold. He and his team efficiently cleaned up the mess and treated all surfaces to prevent mold from regrowing. They were even kind enough to make adjustments to their plans to accommodate our needs.

The quality of work was very good. The original quote was for $199 to do mold abatement, but when they arrived, perhaps it was worse than anticipated because the actual bill for mold abatement was $399. The did recommend a piece of equipment, a UV light, for installation and charged $60 less than retail price, so Leo is a good guy.

Val did an outstanding job on the my old (home built in 1952) HVAC cleaning of air ducts, coil and main lines. I have only lived in this home since January 28, 2017. Val informed me that my unit had never had an HVAC cleaning. The dust buildup and debris was atrocious. He showed me every area that he cleaned thorough out the whole process. Val was very spot-on, informative, knowledgable, helpful and most of all worked efficiently! He informed me that there is black mold growing in one part of the air duct system also and how to properly place the filters inside the slot and proper upkeep on the HVAC unit going forward. I will have to schedule another appointment for that to be done. He was kind enough to take off the old corroded, painted over white register vents and directly referred me to some one to put on new white ones. He also came back the next day, first thing in the morning to show me the proper way to set the thermostat so that the fan will not run all the time. I will definitely stay with Val's company and have the HVAC done next April as recommended by Val and refer him to any family or friends. Thank you Val for your HVAC and mold cleaning services 😊

Carlos was very accommodating to my schedule, rearranging his so he could fit me in late in the same day. Very courteous, prompt, and professional. I got a mold testing for what seems to be a fair price. Would recommend.

They scheduled an appointment right away. When they came, I was relieved to hear that the situation was not as dire as I had imagined. They told me the mold that I did have was just surface mold that could be removed easily with mold paint. They even did an inspection around the home to show me where the extra moisture was coming in and advised me on how I could correct the problem on my own without having to pay for their services.

I tried to write a review last week about the wonderful experience I had with MJ Home Services but by mistake I clicked the post review button before I had a chance to write my review. Therefore this review is in addition to the other review dated 12-22-12 from Mark S. I used MJ Home Services to treat mold in my attic, clean my ventilation system and carpets throughout my entire house, fix a leaking toilet, and to repair some drywall in my living room that was damaged by water in several places (due to the toilet on the floor above it apparently slowing leaking over a perioid of years). Due to my busy work schedule, John and Wayne (workman who came to my house) were extremely accommodating and flexible by performing the above services on a Saturday, a Sunday, and on a Wednesday night. All of the above services were performed with superior workmanship and at very reasonable prices. I know this because I had 2 other estimates before I selected MJ Home Services to perform the work. John was extremely knowledgeable about all of the above services performed. In addition, both John and Wayne were very neat, professional and courteous when performing all the work. In summary, if you want superior workmanshipcombined with very reasonable prices you owe it to yourself to use mJ Home Services for any water damage, mold, ventilation system or carpet cleaning services.

I live in an old row house in Washington DC and had a growing mold problem in the bathroom. CrisRod Environmental came in and very effectively treated the mold and painted the shower room with a mold-resistant paint. Their work was effective, neat, attractive, and quick - I am immensely pleased with the work that they did for me!

When I realized I had some mold growth after a leaky pipe, I had no idea there was an all natural solution that actually kills the mold and the airborne spores available but after hearing about Green Home Solutions, I called and setup an appointment and I couldn't be happier! More cost effective and less turnaround time compared to the other companies I called. Great service and experience with a locally owned company! Highly recommend!

Tony was the best. His work was professional and clean. He went above and beyond to ensure the mold issue was resolved. He was careful and neat while he worked and left the space immaculate once he was done. His prices were also the best out there. In addition, he was also just a really nice person to deal with. I would highly recommend him and would 100% use him again if I have any mold issues in the future. Hiring him is a no brainer!

Steve was hired to clean mold from a large basement. It turned out that mold was in the attic too. It was a lot of work and with my son and pregnant daughter-in-law (and 2 dogs) living in the house I was also concerned about using toxic chemicals to treat the mold. Happily we found Steve who uses only a non-toxic treatment. Steve was great to work with. He's extremely friendly and knowledgeable about mold and mold remediation. There were many places where he could have taken advantage of us financially by suggesting that more work needed to be done than was necessary. However... when we would ask about certain things he would explain why we didn't need it and advised against it. In the end the job was done and done extremely well! He started when he said he would and he was done when he said he would be done. In my experience of hiring people to do work for me, that is not always the case. I really feel he went the extra mile to help us and to make our job as complete and as clean as possible. We had a walkthrough at the end and I could not believe the difference. Follow-up testing proved that the mold was gone. BTW... there were a few spots of dust I wasn't happy with. They didn't contain mold but Steve got his equipment and took care of them. Steve also helped coordinate several other businesses that were necessary to complete the job. We had to have all the attic insulation replaced and the ducts needed to be cleaned. There was also a lot of trash to haul away that was pretty much contaminated as well. We didn't have to worry about any of this. Steve took care of it all. Having to go through mold remediation is scary and stressful. It was great having someone do the job that I felt I could trust and had my best interest in mind doing the job. I asked LOTS of questions and bothered Steve with emails and texts on continual basis. He always answered promptly and thoroughly without any hint of annoyance. A great big THANK YOU, STEVE, for doing a terrific job and helping us get through this nightmare!

My wife and I knew very little about radon and mold testing as we made plans to sell our house. Titleist Testing provided an honest education about the testing process and remediation options should that be required. Our testing representative Michael was on time, prepared and professional in his approach.

We appreciated Jonathan's customer friendly approach and the way he handled our pre-service session. When the workman showed they were completely professional - on time, full attention to the task and cleaned up before they departed. I would totally recommend them based on our experience.

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.
