MasterTech was so easy to work with. They were able to provide a consultation within 24 hours of requesting service. Additionally, the mold removal was done completely and thoroughly within the time requested. ALSO, the tech cleaned up a water leak that my AC was making and was kind enough to turn off my AC to prevent the leak from continuing. This company went above and beyond. I'm so thankful I chose them and I will recommend them to anyone in the future. Hopefully I won't need any further mold removal.

I liked April just from talking to her on the phone. I liked her even more once I met her. She is down to earth, honest and got the job done when she said she would. The job was finished today, and I can't say enough good things about it. Looks like it came from the factory. Bryan her husband also has a part in the process. Removing and replacing the doors and draw fronts. He is also wonderful to work with. Awesome people would recommend NO DOUBT!

Terrific folks! I needed my basement cleaned after 17 years of no cleaning. They vacuumed the ceiling, cleaned walls and floor, wiped all items that had mold. They even organized the basement. Air scrubbers and dehumidifier. I would use them again.

I would highly recommend Michael Kurz and his company Four Leaf Restoration.

Michael took great care of our home while he and his crew were working and did an excellent job on all their work. Michael took care of our mold needs including encapsulating, fogging, cleaning, removing, and other types of mold remediation. He was able to accommodate our schedule and finish earlier then expected. Great guy, great work.

Basement Waterproofing Specialists did a great job with their free inspection/estimate. Dave was punctual, friendly, thorough, and very informative. I learned a good deal about issues with my potential home that would inform my subsequent decisions regarding a purchase.

I am an employee for a construction company that works on high end residential homes. One of our projects, that we were working on over the summer, presented us with some substantial water issues due to condensation in the lower level (basement/crawl space). There was such an amount of this moisture accumulating, that it was dripping on the floor below as well as absorbing into the structure above. Through this scenario, we could've been faced with replacing some pretty expensive hardwood flooring on the upper floor as well as having to pay for an extensive mold remediation on the lower level. The technician, from Water Damage Solutions, that came to assess our situation was extremely knowledgeable in his industry. He knew exactly what to do and wasted no time in executing the plan he laid out to us. Through an extensive setup up of dehumidification coupled with air movement, this gentleman was able to lower the moisture level in the problem area. As a result, we were saved from potentially having to address much bigger issues that this water could've caused. I was also very impressed with level of honesty and concern from this technician. That's an attractive quality that isn't always promised in today's work force. Truly grateful for the work that Water Damage Solutions performed for us and I would definitely recommend this company to anyone facing issues of this sort!

From my first interaction with the people at Basement Professor, they were nothing short of professional. Chris came out and gave me an estimate and was able to point out other issues I was having that would have otherwise gone unnoticed and caused deeper issues down the line. The team from Basement Professor arrived at the agreed upon time and was very punctual. The workers got to work and knew exactly what needed to be done. They installed a French drain, two sump pumps, did some mold remediation for me and also did some small landscaping for me (laying mulch). I am very satisfied with the quality of the work, and have not noticed any issues since the work was performed. Any questions I had, the owner was very quick to get back to me and went above and beyond to find suitable resolutions. The people at Basement Professor are professional, knowledgeable and efficient. They also tried to stick with the original estimate and notified me of any changes that had to be made. If anything, based upon my experience with contractors in the past, it was a breeze to work with Basement Professor and would recommend them in the future to my friends and family. I cannot speak highly of them enough. Thanks for the work!

Although it is an unpleasant experience when your basement floods, Mike Glasner and his staff worked diligently and with sensitivity during my recent flood. They went out of their way to be helpful and thoughtful. They worked quickly and also, met with my insurance adjuster to explain the extent of the damage and the cause of the flood. I am sure this enabled my insurance company to expedite my claim. Mike and his crew worked well as a team and when they left my basement, there was no smell of mildew, dampness or mold. I highly recommend their work.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.

Can mold grow behind drywall?

Mold can grow behind drywall, in your attic, in the basement, under floors — mold can grow anywhere. The key to controlling mold is controlling moisture and water. If your home has been exposed to excessive water due to flooding or heavy rains, if you have an old home with leaky pipes, or if you live in an area with high humidity, you need to be vigilant about mold. Mold is most easily identified by sight. You may see blooms of mold on furniture, on walls, or along the floor. If you can spot mold, you probably don’t need to test for it and can save on mold inspection costs and direct your energies towards mold remediation. But if you’re not certain, you may need a pro to help you determine whether you have hidden mold. Scent and illness are two potential signs of hidden mold. You may smell anything from a musty earth scent to a foul stench, and you may experience respiratory problems, nasal and sinus congestion, eye irritation, nose or throat irritation, skin irritation, problems with your nervous system, or aches and pains. The national average cost of mold inspection and testing is $250-$300.

How long does it take to get rid of mold in a house?

You can never completely remove mold from your house; a small number of mold spores will always exist indoors and are a natural and helpful part of our world. However, if water or moisture is left unchecked inside your home and mold begins to colonize, it can pose a serious health risk. Mold remediation can quickly and safely remove a mold infestation from your home or office. Depending on the size of your problem, mold remediation might take anywhere from one to seven days (or more) to wipe out the major sources of mold in your home.

Mold growths (colonies) can establish within 24-48 hours, so it is important to act immediately if you have a water spill or leak — especially if you live in a hot or humid climate. If you are past the point of DIY and need professional help, mold remediation teams will come to your location, assess the extent of the mold problem, identify and rectify all water leaks and sources of dampness, identify all mold sources (both visible and hidden), use specialized equipment to contain and prevent migration of mold spores, safely remove contaminated materials, treat infested areas with approved antimicrobial sprays, dehumidify and dry the appropriate areas, and seal areas as needed.
