Had pet odor from puppy, had carpets cleaned from another vendor but still had odor, Mark took steps to determine I did not have mold or mildew beneath the carpet and took steps to deodorize and get rid of the puppy odor. Also was helpful in steps to keep home odor free.

And, throughout the process, Dan's experience helped us in our decision making regarding the floors and with any other questions we had. Glad we made this choice! Randy & Miriam

I contacted Ed after having some structural repairs done in the finished basement of my home. The contractor that did the framing repairs did not have a reliable drywall or painting contractor he would recommend. Initially I was looking to have some popcorn ceilings repaired (water damaged) and some drywall repaired or replaced. Quotes from other contractors were all over the map. Long story short, after meeting with Ed and discussing the options I hired him. He was very professional, showed up on time, and stuck to the budget. Instead of trying to repair and respray the popcorn ceilings he recommended scraping and refinishing them smooth. I am so glad I took his advice! He did the drywall repairs, replaced missing trim, removed all the popcorn from the ceilings, and painted all the rooms (walls, ceiling, and trim). He performed all the work we had discussed and the results are even better than I expected. I would definitely recommend him and plan to contact him again next year when I renovate my second floor.

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.

Mr. Taylor was prompt in giving us an estimate and did a great job of removing the mold in our hall bathroom. I have a lung problem and he was very cautious when removing the mold to keep it contained. He was very professional, punctual and a very likeable person. I would highly recommend him.

FANTASTIC WORK! I was very unsure of the process and how mold removal is done so I was a little nervous. I contacted David Sunday evening because of the mold odor in my home. He showed up promptly at my home Monday morning before I had to go to work, and by the time I returned home from work everything was odor free and absolutely no more mold. Extremely professional and very honest about the process and what it would take to get it done. I would strongly recommend his services to anyone!

I'm a realtor. One of my clients was in urgent need of mold remediation for her ceilings and walls. Contacted 3 mold treatment companies before Green Home Solutions, the other companies either had ridiculous rate or had very inflexible schedule. The rate provided by Tim was very reasonable and he was super helpful in terms of educating my client. He was flexible in terms of service timing. His technicians were punctual and professional. Overall, the service me and my client received was second to none and he contributed to the smooth closing of our transaction! I highly recommend Green Home Solutions!

About

Matthews Mold Removal offers professional mold remediation at reasonable prices. Our mold inspectors will do an inspection, and if there is mold found within the home or business, they will then preform mold testing to identify the type of mold that is found. After they identify the type of mold, they will, then, make a remediation report stating the type of mold and what procedures and processes need to take place to remove the mold. If you mention this ad on Thumbtack, we will reduce the price of the inspection from $299.99 to $99.99. If you use our company to preform the mitigation process, the 99.99 will be applied towards the cost of the project. Note that the testing is a separate cost and is not included in the inspection and report cost.

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.
