Jason Scanlon built an 11 x 20 covered front porch for me, and not only was he extremely meticulous about his work, but he is friendly, honest, and built the most gorgeous porch for me. It is prettier than I ever could have imagined. I have had dozens of neighbors and strangers just passing by stop to admire and compliment his work. He BY FAR exceeded any of my expectations and I would hire him again in a heartbeat. My township building ordinance manager even commented to me when he came to inspect various stage of the project that he had seen Jason's work, and that he does a really good job. My porch truly is a masterpiece and a show piece. I wish I could post pics of his creation !!

The service provided by Green Home Solutions was exceptional - The mold remediation specialist/scheduler interrupted his own plans to accommodate me - He was also very efficient and clear, as well as able to schedule GHS very early the following week. The on- site mold remediation crew also appeared very knowledgeable. Everyone was on time, arriving exactly as scheduled. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone. Ethel H.

I am a single parent of three children ranging from 7 months to 12 years. I called Jerry because of health issues that developed after moving into an apartment. I had also found some pretty serious patches of mold and some bubbling paint. Jerry, and his assistant came out the next day. He tested everywhere, and found that only one room in my apartment was safe to occupy. That was pretty shocking news! Jerry advised if my landlord refused appropriate remediation that I should move out for the safety of myself, and my family. I really appreciate Jerry’s expert advice. It means a lot to me that he took the time to come out and test my apartment so quickly after I called. I highly recommend Oil City Mold Remediation and Research Department for addressing water damage, and mold related issues in your home. You could even call Jerry before you decide to purchase your home to make ensure it is a safe place to live.

They were very prompt and very polite. I had them come to my grandmothers house to assess some potential mold issues that would lead to a major concern. They were not only on time but very helpful and made sure to explain everything to her in a easy to understand manner. Highly recommend getting them if you are worried about air quality or mold issues.

We got the Ultimate Diamond home inspection package because we were concerned about radon and air quality in the home we placed a bid on, and Diamond offered the most comprehensive list of services for the most reasonable price we could find. (After calling around, I found that most home inspectors don't offer all of the services that the Diamond Group does.) Don, our inspector, was incredibly thorough in his work he did for us before we purchased our new home. He pointed out many potential safety issues and general problems that needed to be addressed once we moved in. He seemed to think of everything. He used an infrared camera to determine insulation problems, and he also had a moisture meter he used on some of the (slightly) cracked and previously caulked subway tile in the shower wall of our bathroom and discovered that moisture was accumulating behind the wall...a big deal to us, as my husband is very allergic to mold! We never would've thought anything of the wall, but now we're definitely going to fix it as soon as we move in. The Diamond Group was a pleasure to work with, and we would definitely use them again!

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.
