I called Property Recovery 911 when the townhouse next door to my rental property caught fire and the firefighters flooded the homes with water. My property was ruined with smoke and water damage. Property Recovery 911 was responsive to my needs while the fire was still being put out. The owner Paul was on the phone with me throughout the whole ordeal and provided every option available to me and how to best handle the situation and get my tenants back into the property. Property Recovery 911 quickly removed all remnants of smoke damage, water damage and any possibility of mold within the property. The owner of the company (Paul) even asked me to accompany him to the wholesale distributor of the smoke and water damage warehouse to go over all of the different options for remediating the smoke damage and removing the smoke smell from the property. I was educated in all of the products and was able to make an informed decision on where to spend my money. My property was completely restored and the tenants were back in the property within 3 weeks. The other surrounding properties were still waiting for contractors to provide estimates so they asked Property Recovery 911 to work on their houses as soon as they were done in my property. I highly recommend Property Recovery 911 because they provide you with all of the information that you need to make the right decisions, they are courteous, they are efficient and they ensure that you are 100% satisfied during and after the work is completed.

Glenn removed some plywood from a floor in my house and hauled away another demo'd floor. He took the time to help pull some tricky plywood from my stairs at no charge. He took care not to damage any walls or floors. His pricing was fair, he was on time, and he was easy to communicate with.

My heater went out on me a last year. I have had more then one person come out and they were unable to detect what the issue was. After posting on thumtack, Benny from Subzereo Cooling and Heating responded. He came and quickly detected that my motor rusted out due to water damage. He came the next day on time and replaced the motor. He was very pleasant to work with. I would recommend him to anyone and will be using him for my future heating and cooling needs.

Tom from TAF has been a pleasure to work with to say the least. I originally hired him for snow removal services at a property that I manage and have since consulted with him for a new project. He is very honest in his work and I would highly recommend his company.

The water line to our fridge ice maker burst and leaked water in our kitchen which resulted in mold damage to our walls and trim. Leonard was very communicative and upfront about the fees, timing, etc from the moment we submitted our request. He was very professional and walked my wife and I through the process and even when the work was being completed, took the time to answer my wife's questions/concerns. I would say I hope to never run into MasterTech again, seeing as we don't want to have any more mold in the house :-), but if we ever do I will not hesitate to call them immediately. As far as a recommendation, I wish I could rate higher than 5 stars and would gladly recommend their services, especially Leonard, to any mold remediation job. Thanks Leonard and MasterTech for making an unfortunate situation less nerve-wracking and passing along your expertise and knowledge to my wife and I.

Paul installed both a storm and entry door for me. I was very happy with how everything turned out. He was always responsive to my questions, showed up on time for both the estimate and the work, and completed the job on the days and in the time promised. I would hire him again, and I recommend him to anyone who needs work done.

One of the most professional companies we could possibly work with… they were able to come out and spend over 3 hours assessing the damage before even quoting us. They ended up helping us have insurance cover the entire project. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Olly arrived on time and did what he said he would do. He was personable, timely, and tidy. We needed to have the drywall behind our water heater replaced due to water damage, before we could have the new water heater installed. We also decided we wanted to complete the ceramic tile flooring that had been installed around the around water heater but not under it, so that the new water heater will rest on tile at the same level as the rest of the floor. This required carefully removing the tiles that had been cut to curve around it, then installing new tiles to fill in the gap. The work was cleanly-finished, with respectable craftsmanship, and Olly also left that part of our utility room way cleaner than he found it. Olly will now be our go-to person for small projects and repairs around our house.

This company and owner Brett were a pleasure to deal with. I had water damage from a busted pipe. So one room had to be re-sheet rocked, speckled, and painted. The quality of the work Brett did was absolutely flawless and came at a very good price. After he finished up the room I was so happy with the quality and price that I decided to have 3 other rooms and a bathroom repainted. Once again he gave me a very good price for painting the rooms and the work was perfect. I highly recommend Bwe custom construction !!!

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.
