We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to have an inspection done.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Phil Fry since 2001 nd one and Divine shortly thereafter. His ideas about mold were influential in helping me create the Nation's first all natural mold removal system. Phil is a true friend and a mold expert of unparalleled experience, bar none. His mold school in Utah predates any of the major so called "accepted National Certifications" offered by the likes of IAQA and IICRC as well as NAMP. Unlike these companies Phil is willing to lay liability aside and share exactly how to eradicate mold while the other dance all around the subject never telling you which products to use when due to their own fear of lawsuits and liability for product failure. If you have need of a serious MOLD GURU and International MOLD EXPERT Phil fry is your guy. If you need hep solving your own mold problem again Phil is your man. Take it from me I am a Nationally recognized Mold Remediation Expert and the Author of the Book Got Mold, Now What? A basic guide to understanding and correcting mold in your home. Kudos Phil and Divine- Keep helping mold victims! Charles Boday Author Speaker Inventor

I would recommend AdvantaClean to all of my friends and clients. I work in the restoration and historic preservation field, so I have experienced the good, the bad, and the ugly. Gerard went above and beyond. He was so nice, fair, on time, fast, and thorough. He will make sure the job is done right and be easy to work with the entire time. He did mold remediation in my entire basement over the course of two weekends. I was amazed at how fast he worked and how spotless the basement was when he was done. It's so clean that now I'm able to paint the entire thing and start the process of finishing the space. I can't say enough great things about him and his company.

Mark and Chris came on a Friday and completed the job in one day. The job included wiping down, mopping and hepa-vacuuming the entire basement. They used air scrubbers to clean the air and they sealed off the basement from the rest of the house to prevent cross contamination. The product they use to fog is called Oceanic. Most products just encapsulate the mold spore, so even though it's dead, it can still be an irritant. Oceanic is an Enzyme that actually crushes it so it is no longer an irritant. I can't say enough about Mark and Chris. They were very professional, very knowledgeable and very nice people. I was not here while they were doing the work, but they were very careful not to let the cats or the dog out. They did the work they said they would do and they left the basement cleaner than what they started with. My test results show that they got rid of the mold and they guarantee it for 2 years. Description of work: Our basement leaked and we had very high mold counts in the basement. I had four companies come out and talked to many others on the phone to get as much information as I could on mold remediation. I chose Green Home Solutions for several reasons. The main reason is the product they use. After researching many different protocols that all of the different companies use, I found theirs to be not only non-toxic, but also the most effective. The second reason I chose them was because of the owners, Mark and Chris. They were very knowledgeable about the product and took all the time I needed to explain everything to me. They were very friendly and genuinely seemed to care about my problem. They were easy to contact and always returned calls promptly. They were very accommodating to fit me in when it was most convenient for me. They showed up when they said they would, the work they did exceeded my expectations and when they finished the job, they followed up with me to make sure I was satisfied. Sherry

Recently came across a ton of mold in a newly purchased home and it totally stresses me out. Not only was Onyx Environmental very quick, but they charged me a fair price and were very friendly and helpful throughout the whole experience. 5/5 stars, I highly recommend using this company.

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.
