As a person who owns property in different states, finding a trustworthy and reputable home restoration company is very important. TRX Damage Restoration is that company for me. After reading positive reviews online, I decided to give the company a call. The owner, was very nice and worked with me one on one to make sure that my property received the attention it deserved. Even from all the way in California, getting updates and pictures about how the process was going was a breeze. TRX made quick work of the mold in the laundry room, as well as behind the walls. TRX Damage Restoration will be my go to disaster restoration company in New York for years to come. Thanks Gene and the whole team!

IPMC did an outstanding job removing mold from my 1920's House. Being a home with a leaky roof, broken windows, and had been vacant for 20 years, it was no easy job and they exceeded expectations. In short, they were honest from the start with a very low cost, completed the job on schedule, communicated effectively throughout the project (including daily updates), the staff were courteous and friendly, and they went above-and-beyond including alerting me to issues caused by other contractors also working on my house. My wife and I could not be more pleased and our General Contractor was thoroughly impressed.

I would highly recommend Green home Solutions. Working with Sam made a stressful situation (on my part) extremely easy! I needed to have mold removed in my basement and he was great to work with, from start to finish! He is extremely professional and knowledgeable; always letting me know what was going on, the status of the project and worked within my crazy schedule seamlessly. I cannot thank him enough for everything! If you need a quality company and person, Sam is the guy!!

"They are professional, curious and reasonably priced. They are also very good to their staff. I am now using Green Restoration LLC on a consistent basis and would recommend them to someone looking for a mold remediation.Very affordable and the quality of work is very impressive. We were very surprised how fast the job was done. We hired independent mold inspector after they finished the job and he asked if we had a mold at all :) . We had 3 positive tests from the lab . Thank you very much "

I had never before used Thumbtack and know very little about flooring. But, in the situation my wife and I are going through (her terminal cancer) I can sure recognize an angel when God sends me one. Blessings and deep thanks for putting me in touch with Rich.

Top notch! Finding these people online was a stroke of luck:. NICE. HONEST. FAIR. HELPFUL. PROFESSIONAL. We needed mold abatement and then work to restore the premises (new flooring, drywall, etc) and could not have been happier not only with the excellence of the work but with the responsiveness and intelligence of everyone we dealt with, from Tina the office manager to the fellows on the job. A wonderfu experience in a trying situation.

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.

We had a General home inspection, termite, radon and mold inspection done with Tim. He was extremely professional with fair pricing. Very knowledgeable without being pushy. I felt confidant in his report and his results were detailed and on time. I would certainly recommend for NJ home inspections.

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.

It's really hard to know who to trust with a mold problem. Especially for us as we have a special needs child so chemicals are also a major concern. I trust Steve. He is thoughtful and knowledgeable. He studied the problem - and it was a big one - and solved it without turning our home into a chemical war zone. He is our "mold whisperer."

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.
