we are new to the area and had the group at EBRR Cleanup do an evaluation on some mold under the bathroom sink. Before we followed through on the listing offer we wanted to make sure there was not a larger issue present. Ed was great and all the work happened within a week of our post, personable and friendly.

Michael Davis and his crew were outstanding. 10/10 and I highly recommend his services. My boyfriend and I have been sick for months and could not figure out why. When we noticed the black spots in our ceiling, we realized that it could be environmental causes. I got on thumbtack and found Mold Control Services and talked to the owner Michael. Before I even thoroughly started to explain our symptoms, he knew exactly what was wrong. He came the next day to do a free inspection. I questioned him about air quality tests and what not but he told us that there's no point in wasting our money to do one when he knows the mold is already there. When I spoke with some other local companies, they were charging about 300-400$ just to do some tests. With Michael, he came to my house to inspect the mold for free and told us what was wrong right away. He is so knowledgeable in his field. He told us exactly what type of mold he thought it was and when he cut open the dry wall, it was exactly what he said it was. He is very thorough in his work. He made sure that the air quality in my home was back to normal as well as removing the mold that was on my bathroom ceiling. He is fair on price and he makes sure that his customers are looked out for. I know that these types of services are confusing sometimes and every company does it differently but Michael does it right. If you have mold or suspect you have mold, you need to call Mold Control Services. Michael will tell you the truth, everything you need to know, and charge you a very fair price to get it removed. I highly recommend him.

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 😊

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.

Our experience with Mr. James and his team was very pleasant. All of the guys were very knowledgeable and professional. They handled all permits and inspections necessary to complete the project. We noticed an infestation of mold growth in one of our properties. We were already contemplating remodeling this area of the basement anyway. We decided to not only remediate the mold but also to hang new drywall throughout the entire basement, install about 13 recessed lights with smart motion switches, slate tile flooring, and rough in and install a full bath in the space. James came in and offered my husband and I a lot of different options to reach our desired goal beyond the mold remediation. He also did the bathroom design, and suggested some beautiful tile combinations and we loved them all. In short we decided to go with James to do the work and the project went flawless. Very professional, clean within reason during a renovation, and very organized and personable. He kept us informed at every stage and there were no surprises. They completed the project in about10 days including county inspections. James followed up with us a month after the job was completed to make sure that everything ok. Great customer service!! We will definitely be using Unlimited Resources in the near future and have recommended James and his team to several people already.

I love the way my whole house look after the mold inspection and removal plus the floor tile and mastic on my basement. I truly RECOMMEND CRISROD for any asbestos or mold project in your house or commercial.

I am a prior military personnel who have traveled within and outside of the United States. Therefore, I can differentiate between businesses that are dishonest (scam artist), and those that are sincere in their efforts to provide remarkable workmanship. I spoke with 6 contractors, excluding God's Glory LLC, who tried to pressure me into signing contracts that didn't address the underlying cause of the water in my crawlspace. I hired Mr. Elendu , the owner of God's Glory LLC, because he is very professional and extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of home improvements and repairs, water/fire restoration along with mold remediation. His customer service is unmatchless-a breath of fresh air. He first defined the underlying cause of the water damages, and carefully explained the best techiques to repair the water damages in the front of the home. He always keep me abreast on any modifications that had to be made. Most importantly, Mr. Elendu listened to my concerns, and he provided the best techiques to repair water damages and prevention of water intrusion into the crawlspace. Mr. Elendu never pressured me into signing a contract. He was readily available to answer any questions pertaining to water restoration, watetproofing, and home repairs or improvements. We had agreed that I would purchase the materials-Mr. Elendu went to Home Depot to get the materials for me, and with the extra materials he waterproofed the side area of the home, without charging me for the services. He meticulously designed a highly effective drainage and waterproof system. I was having difficulty racking the leaves; therefore, Mr. Elendu had his crew racked the leaves for me. This contractor business is the greatest, and almost goes the extra miles to provide outstanding customer service. His prices are competitive. I highly recommend God's Glory LLC to anyone who is looking for a remarkable, highly skilled craftsman. In fact, I will be utilizing Mr. Elendu for any future contracting services.

Jason was quick to reply to my request for services. He was able to come out the next day and test our air and give us results the next day. He also did the mold remediation at our home as soon as the demo was complete. We felt safe using his products since we have small children and pets. He also recommended a great contractor to work with on some repairs in our bathroom.

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!

Ansony was very professional. I hired ansony to check for mold and any air pollutant issues in the house as my family and I were having a lot of allergy issues at the recent house I purchased. He explained to us in very detail and clear what he found and how he could assist us with. He even answer a lot of question we had about other related issues in the house as well and provide us with possible solution ideas for those other issues. I highly recommend him.

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.

We asked Jim to do a complete house mold inspection for a house we were under contract to purchase. We were concerned about previous flooding in the basement of the house, and we noticed areas of the garage ceiling that had been exposed to moisture. There was no visible mold. Jim used the latest spore collection methods and equipment, and he employed infrared viewing to inspect hidden spaces. As it turned out, Jim's expertise paid off. We were saved from making a very expensive investment in a house that showed evidence of toxic mold. We can't praise Jim enough. He is a professional educator who guided us through the process and helped us understand the significance of his findings. We would recommend him as a first choice to anyone in the Maryland area who wishes to have peace of mind about his or her home purchase.

The man who runs the company is very professional. Hes very kind and knows his stuff. Hes a hard worker and knows a lot about what hes doing. He knows the field very well and he did an extraordinary job cleaning up a water damage at my property. He was there within the time frame that was promised and did outstanding work. I would reccomend abraham to all of my friends and family when in need of any services related to the business. Water mold fire anything.

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.
