My review is overdue as we had the work completed a few weeks ago but wanted to leave high marks for the EBRR team. Our office needed redesigning and installation of new drywall as well as mold treatment from the water damage. Everything went on time and smoothly. First, Ed came to assess the property and then sent me a proposal for the work to be completed. The scheduling was "sort of easy" to work with, when you want o hire reputable companies expect them to be busy and have a timeframe of 1-2 weeks. The team manager, Luis had the men arrive early every day, clean and professional (the cleaned up after them selves every day)! It was a pleasure working with EBRR Property Cleanup on this project and Ed, please tell Luis that he was a blessing to work with!

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.

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 😊

Carlos was very knowledgeable and helped give me options. He was great. We did air and scratch Mold/Mildew tests to see if I do have mold in the basement or just some other kind of smell. After the tests come back we will go from there in attacking the smells

Thank you for introducing us to Mean Clean Home Service. Our basement flooded over the weekend from all the rain. We heard was a good place to find reliable services so from them we found Mean Clean. They came straight out and extracted all the water and cleaned my carpet. They also sanitized and treated everything for mold. Our insurance company came out to fix the flood two days after Mean Clean already did (just like an insurance company right?). They said Mean Clean did a excellant job! That they expected the basement to smell and to their surprize it was very fresh and totally cleaned like nothing ever happened. The techs were very polite and very honest! They are coming out next week to clean my Air ducts. Thanks Mean Clean! You guys are the best! Hope you dont mind but we gave the insurance company your number they said they was very impressed with Mean Clean workmanship and would like to use you all in the future! You guys are going to the top! Kelly, Towson Md.

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.

Best Company Ever!!! I contacted MJ Home Services originally to have my vents cleaned. John & his team responded immediately and found that I had some mold issues as my home is 62 years old. They completely cleaned my whole system and treated my basement to eradicate the mold. John also did several other jobs for me in addition to the mold treatment including, carpet cleaning, installing a French drain, and many other small jobs which greatly improved our home. John is the Master & is very knowledgeable. He and his team were prompt, courteous, professional, reliable, affordable, and very pleasant to work with throughout the entire process. I highly recommend MJ Services for any air duct or carpet cleaning or any of the services they provide. You will be very happy using this company, which is very rare these days!!! I would give them 10 stars if I could!!!

We discovered mold in our crawl space and Ian came to give us an estimate. He was very professional and thorough. He discovered some areas of mold that others had missed. He took the time to answer our questions and the work was done promptly and for a reasonable price. We would definitely recommend his services.

Competitive quote. Easy scheduling. Prompt arrival. Explained the job. Found evidence of mold and explained further treatment protocol and gave quote on the spot. All work completed on same day. No return trip. Ended up being more expensive than I planned, but guaranteed mold-free for two years. And the technician was great.

David, Jason and their crew were awesome. David and Jason came to the house after I discovered mold in an area where my kids play. I wasn't sure if it was black mold or not but I wasn't about to take a chance and neither was David. He assessed the work effort within 48 hours of me contacting them at midnight on a Saturday! I was shocked at how fast they responded. The price was exactly what I was thinking it would be and even David told me that he may not always be the cheapest but he does the job to the standard of whether or not he would want to live in that space afterwards. It showed big time. I could not be more happy with the service I got from AdvantaClean.

We had extensive black mold in our basement. Steve was quick to send out a person for a free estimate (well within reason) and was able to quickly remove mold. Very helpful company, they used chemicals that would not harm pets, gave us time and advice for cleaning any items in the house with potential mold spores and gave advice to prevent further mold and moist situations in the basement. Overall, a very helpful company.

    Rich was friendly, professional, and provided amazing service! He came to the house within a few hours of our inquiry to give an estimate. His estimate was affordable and included military discount which we always appreciate. Service was performed the next day! He removed stains from our carpets that other providers said were permanent. The carpets look brand new after Rich cleaned them, and previously we had tenants with cats living in the house! Outstanding work. As a bonus, he also cleaned the grout in the master shower which had stains from mold that we couldn't remove with regular household cleaners. We will definitely call him again in the future and refer to friends.

    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.
