Tyler was really easy to work with. He explained me various options available to do mold test and gave the best price in the town. He went above and beyond my expectation. I will gladly hire him back if I need similar work done.

If you are weighing options and trying to decide who to hire for your clean up / restoration / remediation needs then look no further. From my initial call to their office and subsequently the home visit from Todd, everything was FANTASTIC!! I recently purchased a "used" home and it has some issues that need to sorted. He couldn't have been more professional and knowledgeable. Their services are second to none. You are not going to find a better company for your needs. I'd give them 6 stars if it were possible. Thanks Spaulding for restoring my faith in how businesses should be run.

I am happy to express my satisfaction with the work performed by GNL Enterprises. It's been about a year since I engaged his services which involved demolition of the interior walls of the basement in order to prepare for mold remediation. I have found Gregory Lindgren to be an excellent and prodigious worker. Not only was he always prompt and courteous, he took sufficient time to explain every phase of the work he was conductiing. His work is thorough; he always removed debris on a daily basis and he protected the work environment from the rest of the house through the means of carefully constructed heavy plastic "doors". I would not ever hesitate to recommend him to anyone contemplating hiring him for whatever projects he or she is considering.

Less than a year ago, our basement flooded from a sewer backup that was caused by tree roots. Initially I thought that my cleanup efforts were sufficient(shop-vac to remove all water, discard visibly damaged carpet and belongings), but unfortunately I was wrong. About 2 months later my wife noticed black spores growing on some of the sheetrocked areas in our laundry room. That is when I decided to consult an expert to see if we were dealing with a potential mold issue. I reached out to Minnesota Mold Inspection and Vickie responded very promptly. From the moment that she arrived at our residence she was extremely professional, courteous and considerate. She explained every step that would be done in the testing process and always kept us informed. Vickie then delivered a comprehensive report with a summary of the incident, mold spore counts and types, recommended next steps for mold remediation/restoration, and content cleaning instructions/suggestions for all of our personal items. We were so impressed with her outstanding work that we reached out to her a second time to perform clearance testing after the restoration company completed the mold removal and air cleaning. I would highly recommend Vickie from Minnesota Mold Inspection for any and all mold related issues.

I was lucky enough to find Justin on Thumbtack and hired him to take care of a strong mold smell in my lower level family room. I received a thorough report with pictures and an air quality test prior to hiring him which indicated a need to remove it asap. I received excellent customer service, timely service and education on mold and how he cleans and removes it. He used plastic to corner off the area so I would not have to worry about the spores moving around and then did an excellent job of cleaning up and removing the debris. I would highly recommend him. My home immediately smelled better. Thanks Justin!

We had a strange odor in our basement and contacted Twin Cities Mold and the owner David came to inspect our home. He explained the process and the lab results to us. He was professional and completed the process in a timely fashion. We are now addressing the mold issue. Thanks

The cleaner worked hard at removing the mold on the bottom of a wall in a basement room where water had seeped in through minute cracks in the foundation. He showed me his work before applying a sealant that he painted on the wall. This completed the first step in a longer process to direct ground water away from the house.

I'm a realtor and my Buyers needed an additional inspection inside the finished basement due to high moisture readings and the infrared camera results from their homes inspection. We needed it in a short time frame, since the inspection contingency window was quickly closing. I called around and Rainbow International of the Northern Twin Cities answered their phone right on the first call and got me to Matthew Milless (also on the same call), who was awesome. He knew exactly what kind of inspection that I needed, was friendly and listened first, and understood the nature of home inspections in real estate transactions. We scheduled the appointment for an early time (and he was patient while I got permission from the Seller first) just a day and a half out. Matthew arrived promptly at 8AM with his assistant, was polite and professional not only with my Buyers, but also with the Sellers who were there, was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. They were quick to get to work with the camera inspection of the interior wall and verified that the moisture detected was minimal and that there was no mold growth on the studs or the base of the walls (they also use a particle counter). They put everything back the way it was and left zero mess, dust, *anything*. (they took baseboards off, drilled small holes, and snaked the camera through). The whole inspection took about an hour and the price was very reasonable and affordable for my Buyers! If you are a realtor, or a Buyer of a home and need an additional inspection regarding mold, water, or any of the issues that they address, I highly recommend using Rainbow International of the Northern Twin Cities!

Contacted AdvantaClean to come out and evaluate some water damage we had a few months back. The tech was able to schedule time to come out the next day and told me they could start work within the week. The tech used a water sensor and told me where moisture was. After evaluating the moisture levels, he made the suggestion that we not hire them for any removal at this time because the damage wasn't significant enough. Really appreciated the honesty. Definitely recommend!

      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.
