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.

Mike did a great job at a reasonable price. His communication with me about the estimate and the job itself was fantastic. He even sent me pictures while he was there to show me what was going on which is very useful since I wasn't in Baltimore when the job happened. I would recommend Mike for anyone's mold remediation needs.

Val is the nicest. Came in, looked at what needed to be done, and gave me an estimate. I would say it was reasonable, as I have no idea how much mold remediation costs, but I can say "I was NOT crying all the way to the bank." The sub-contractors he had working with him were also very nice, friendly and personable. If you ever need to have mold removed, Val (and crew) is your guy.

“I called Eco Pro Restoration because I thought I had a mold problem. They came out and checked my basement and examined the outside of my house -landscaping and gutter extensions. I was given good advice as to how to keep the basement dry and best of all - I got an honest answer that I do not have a mold problem and therefore avoided costly mold remediation. I was not charged for this visit which I really appreciate.”

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!!!

Ken was great from start to finish. He took the time to talk with me before the inspection and let me know what to expect. Then, he set up an exact appointment (no four-hour window!) and worked with my schedule so I could avoid taking off too much time from work. He was on time to our place and was professional and polite, explaining more about his process and thoroughly checking out the problem. Throughout, he was excellent in his kindness, understanding, and communication. We agreed to two indoor air samples, in addition to the outside control sample. (He even talked us out of another sample as unnecessary!) Best of all, he was very calm and reassuring with my girlfriend, who was highly upset due to her asthma being seriously aggravated by the problem. As he promised, the lab results came back the next day (bad problem), and he had his full report to us the following day. It included an excellent, comprehensive protocol for selecting and hiring a remediation service. Having been through a mold situation three times in three separate places now, I can tell you firsthand how absolutely important it is to get an independent inspector/tester like Unbiased Mold Inspection, which does not do any remediation or anything else. A LOT of companies do it all, which can make their intentions suspect. With Ken and his company, you know you're getting an objective opinion from someone who's not trying to sell you more services.

On March 29, 2016, a pipe burst in our neighbor’s home which caused water to seep into our basement, causing flooding. After a lot of back in forth with our insurance company we were finally able to file a claim. Serve-pro was suggested by our insurance company to perform the mitigation. After the 3-day mitigation process the affected carpet was concluded damaged. After a week of frustration trying to find a contractor that could perform the restoration I decided to get on here and start searching for a contractor. I had 6 contractors assess the damage and give me proposals. Most of the proposals were overpriced and the contractors didn't inspire confidence. I finally decided to contact Cletus, he was very responsive to my initial phone call and came to look at the basement the next day. He gave me an estimate and ensured me he would restore the damages to our basement. He and his crew were very professional yet friendly. They removed contents from the affected spaces, which was really going above and beyond what I would expect. I would highly recommend them to others. Top notch service and very knowledgeable of water, mold remediation, and restoration. He kept us informed on the progress and worked hard to be done by the deadline. He did exactly what he promised and more, I would highly recommend him and his company to anyone needing water restoration.

I hired VIP Steemer after another contractor, who was not on Thumbtack, took the first couple of insurance checks and walked off the job. With the way VIP Steemer came in and corrected a very complicated situation for our family, Mr. Iwundu and his team proved to be a God send for us! When VIP Steemer came to the job, the remediation had not been started and water damage and mold were still on walls, cabinetry and flooring. VIP Steemer got to work promptly re-negotiating with insurance companies and starting a proper and thorough remediation. In the middle of the remodel phase, 3 ft. of snow collapsed our roof. Before any further damage could be done to the home, Mr. Iwundu deftly handled the complex insurance problems and quickly repaired damage done by the snow. The remodel was beautiful. The workmanship was excellent. The materials they bought the job far exceeded my expectations. Above all I appreciated the honesty with which Mr. Iwundu and his team dealt with us. Where there were old piping and fixtures that needed replacing, the VIP Steemer team pro-actively identified and fixed problems. They repaired or replaced where it was needed instead of covering up or "patching-over" things that we as homeowners could have easily missed. Because of their thoroughness, honesty, and skill, VIP Steemer took what was a very difficult time for my family and me and helped to make our days a lot brighter!

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.

I hired this company to inspect and remove some mold in my laundry closet. Tony, the technician, was professional and thorough in explaining the issue to me and provided step-by-step guidance on what needed to be done. They have a 2 year guarantee on the mold removal.

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.
