I am very happy with the detailed report from Jenny Luca and the way she conducted the Mold Assessment on my apartment. She came on time and explained every thing she was doing and kept asking me questions relating to the reason for the job.

Inspector was great, thorough, took her time, explained everything to me & got my lab results quickly. Thanks to her I saved $10000 on the price of the home I bought and it only cost me $550 for multiple mold tests. Highly recommend NY Pro!

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.

Ian and his crew have helped us out with properties we manage by coming over promptly when we've needed them to clean up some very unpleasant situations, including raw sewage backups. I know I can call Ian, explain the problem, and leave it in his hands to make right. They've also addressed mold issues for us and are our go-to firm to handle a slew of dryer vent cleanouts, when required by condominium complexes that we work with. When finished with a job, they clean up well, so that you barely know they were there. Ian provides detailed invoices with full explanations of work done. Prices are reasonable. A genuinely good guy to work with and someone we've come to rely on. Robert A. Lubeck, Broker-Sales Associate/Property Manager, Woodward Properties, REALTORS. Summit, New Jersey.

We did a mold remediation project with Kahlil from TKOR, and he (with another gentleman) did a great job overall. At first, both of them came for a free estimate, and they gave us very reasonable price and also sent us a clear itemized estimate with all the specific jobs clearly listed. During the job, they performed the itemized jobs as promised, and cleaned up everything including the trash nicely. Overall, we were very happy with the job done by Kahlil, and we would give our highest recommendation to TKOR without any reservation.

Joe quickly responded to my request and was onsite for an assessment. He confirmed what had been identified during a home inspection and fromthere provided a competitive estimate. His professionalism won us over and allayed concerns. More importantly, his rapid response time allowed us to quickly close on our home sale- which was as important as the mold remediation. As far as the work itself, Dave and Sean were professional, courteous, efficient and knowledgeable. I was very pleased with their process and quality of work. The end result was remediation in a timely manner. Highly recommended and able to accommodate tight timelines. Knowledgeable in their domain with competitive pricing.

Mark Bendit came as scheduled and was thorough in his assessment of the mold and testing for water damage and eased this owner's mind when he kindly explained the process of filing my claim. He even spoke with my insurance agent. I would recommend this company very highly.

From start to finish everyone I spoke to was knowledgeable and respectful of me and my property. The men who actually did the work did a great job. When I first noticed the mold it really upset me. Gary Sands calmed me down, explained what need to be done and assured me that he would be available to answer any questions or concerns I may have and he was. If you look online re: mold remediation you will get an education. I got 3 estimates and Flag did what is recommended on line. You will not be sorry if you use Flag Enterprises. Thanks Kathleen,

Chris and his team are amazing. I have used several mold inspection companies in the past along with mold remediation companies and this was by far the best experience. From the start I was pleased as this was the first time I used thumbtack. Chris responded to my request that Saturday Night which was a pleasant surprise and from there I provided all the details. With a mutual agreed date he sent his manager, Justin, to our house. He was as polite and professional as can be and knowledgeable. A later date was set for sampling and discussed which tests would be best. Chris personally came and took the samples and he was as polite as his manager that he sent. In the end, I have spent years researching this industry due to a health condition, and know when companies are trying to nickel and dime you compared to actually helping. They were surprised with how much I knew, but from the start they were honest and upfront making them the right choice to come out to my place for help. This was by far best experience given circumstances. It takes great customer service for me to leave a review and this one is well deserved. Thank you Chris, Justin, and your team for your efforts and going above and beyond with helping.

My apartment appeared to have mold in my bathroom and I was lost as to what I should do- I am a tenant renting a place and heard all different stuff. Spencer gave me his honest opinion, giving me the background into similar mold problems and suggested that I do not need work done giving my move soon. It is comforting to hear this from a free conversation. If I ever do mold work in the future, I would definitely feel comfortable using Spencer and his company.

I was in need of French drains and a sump pump for my basement and garage. Although Tony charged more for the drains than others, his knowledge as a Civil/Structural Engineer and design for the drains were superior to the others. Also, Tony was able to start work soon; we wouldn't have to wait for weeks if we went with another company. Our house is old and is built on a rocky foundation. Tony was able to make the necessary adjustments in order to implement the drains successfully. Furthermore, he gave us a discount because we also needed to do some mold remediation and asbestos removal as well. I could not find anyone who offers all 3 services. Tony also answered all my questions related to the work in person, via phone, and text. I highly recommend.

our hot water heater broke and flooded into our master bedroom. While we did not have a major mold issue, it was clear that we needed mold remediation experts to resolve the issue. Our search landed us with MasonPro Restoration. They appeared to be a reputable company. Tony and his team came in quickly. He and his team were extremely efficient in their work. In addition to that, they ensured that we were aware and understood every step of the process. We highly recommend them for any mold remediation project. Very professional and effective in what they do. We are extremely happy with their work. Thanks!!!

I needed them to help remove mold in a relative's home and then do restoration -- so I was working with them only by phone. They moved quickly and efficiently, answered all my questions, and did such a good job that my relative's neighbor was moved to call me and say that their work was "fantastic."

I was contacted by all state restoration first. Because I am moving and plan to negotiate my remediation needs with the buyer I did not use all state's service. But I feel like I received good free advice about my issue. I spoke with Sean. He took the time to look at pictures and tell me about the cleaning process and the potential costs right over the phone. Thanks All State Restoration

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.
