We had an odor problem that started suddenly and we could not determine the source. We thought it might be something to with natural gas. The gas rep came and said no. We called a contractor and he said the problem was moisture and advised removing the insulation from the outside wall in the basement. We called a plumber who told us that it wasn't the lift station but we needed a new sump pump. ($498 please) We called a building inspector and he told us that it was definitely a water issue. We didn't believe him since we could detect no smell after removing insulation. $100 please. We called a mold abatement company and they said that it wasn't mold but we needed a new dehumidifier ($150 please) to get the room dried out. Advice - $150 please. As it turned out all the advice was wrong and expensive. We called Ultra Clean were notified within 15 minutes with contact information for the rep in our neighborhood and he was here in 15 minutes and he solved the problem in less than 15 minutes. (It was a piece of insulation that had been contaminated within the last 27 years that caused the odor.) The bottom line is that we paid a bunch of people who were guessing. Our basement has always been dry. It is finished space and the problem started suddenly. If we would have called Ultra Clean at the beginning we would have saved lots of money and the time we wasted trying to figure out the cause of the problem. I am not looking forward to our next odor issue but when it happens Ultra Clean will get the call. Ultra Clean solved the problem. $25 please!

I needed to have mold removed quickly. Matt was quick to respond for an estimate. Explained everything to me. Price was comparable. He did a great job, was on time, communicated and cleaned up when finished. It's nice to have a good person on your side in these situations!

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.

I do not think there is a more trusthworthy team in Minneapolis. A few weeks ago I used Spaulding Decon for the 3rd time and I will continue using them for every mold, home clean up (had a hoarder in one of my property's) and water removal from a basement. Todd and his team are extremely thorough, they're skilled, they're talented and their passion for helping their clients protect their investment is apparent. I would really encourage anyone looking for an services whether its mold removal, hoarder clean up and water removal (commercial or residential) to use this team. You won't be disappointed!

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!

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 had Ice Dam water damage and allot of it. I called Mike at PuroClean, and he was at my home the very next day to provide an estimate. The job required the tear out of dry wall, mold removal, and finally drying the place out. Mike was extremely sensitive to all of the furniture and surroundings, and at days end with the exception of our walls being down to the insulation we could barely tell he had been there. Mike also took care of all of the insurance communications for us for as well. I would highly recommend Mike and PuroClean Property Recovery.

Steve responded promptly to our request for mold inspection and removal, and was able to come to our house the next day for a consultation. He was very thorough and took the time to explain his inspection and cleaning procedure, as well as possible reasons and solutions for our mold problem. His estimate was reasonable, and they even provide a price-matching guarantee. While we ultimately decided to go the do-it-yourself route, I plan on keeping Steve's number on hand for any future projects! I highly recommend considering Steve and AdvantaClean for your cleaning needs!

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.

    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.
