Working with John was mostly great experience. After his assessment of our attic he was hesitant to recommend remediation without an air quality test. Other companies were quick to give us a bit for remediation work without a thorough inspection. Thankfully our test came back negative so no remediation was needed and save us big $$$. My only criticism is timeliness for appointments could use some improvement, but overall John remained very professional, receptive, and honest. I would not hesitate to recommend them to friends or family. They are not out to make a quick buck.

Simply the best. The only inspector I use and have for 10 years. I don't even give my clients a list of inspectors to choose from, because I haven't found one better and would be doing my clients a disservice to suggest others I know aren't as good. Extremely thorough and a nice guy too!. Prices are in line with other inspectors. Won't scare buyers and will try to explain alternative ways to fix an issue. Knows mold inside out and also does mold testing and remediation. If you want the best, and are prepared for a very thorough inspection, hire him.

I had read the "reviews" from other Clients of Mold Experts, which helped me in my decision to use Marvin's company! Boy, am I glad I did! He is everything that you would want in a Mold Remediation company; Honest, Prompt, and Competitively priced. Marvin not only did everything he said he would do, but left Air Purifier's in our home for approx. 4 days after remediating the mold from our house! Mold Experts, thank you very much for a JOB WELL DONE!

    Mike Finley with D & D Water Damage Restoration are simply the best! I am HUGE on customer service! His customers come first! I am a property Manager of a 240 unit complex and have worked with Mike for several years with various water problems. I refer everyone I can to him.

Mike carefully explained the steps that would be taken for the water extraction and mold remediation process. The crew he assigned to do the job exceeded my expectations. I found them to be efficient & courteous and was extremely pleased they completed the work within the excepted time frame, as well as the residents who were affected.

      About

      AdvantaClean of Lawrence follows industry guidelines and provides quality service. Clay and David not only provide the initial inspection and quote, but they perform the work themselves. We don't send in a crew that treats the service only as a job, with no empathy toward the client. We want to resolve the client's issue and help educate them as to how to make sure issues don't return.

        Kit and his team are outstanding. Kit is very professional and knows what he's talking about. My basement had moisture issues caused by my back yard not being graded right for proper drainage. Kit found the problem and it was fixed quickly. The mold was removed from the home and all my belongings were cleaned properly and quickly. If I ever had problems again I would call Service that Out Preforms with out thinking twice about it.

        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.
