How much does it cost to get rid of mold?

Thumbtack Editors

Mold remediation costs will vary based on the severity of your mold infestation. The total square footage of your mold damage and mold colonization, the accessibility of the areas to be treated, and any demolition and repair work required will all affect how much it costs to get rid of mold. Mold can grow anywhere, but can really become a problem when there is excessive moisture and/or humidity. A simple mold colony that is caught quickly and has not spread too far can generally be killed and removed within a day’s work and will be relatively affordable. However, if the mold colonies have proliferated and are inside your walls, under your carpets, or inside your HVAC ducts, the mold remediation costs will be higher and the labor will be more intensive. For example, basic mold remediation costs for easy-to-access areas like attics and crawl spaces could be roughly $2 per square foot on average. Conversely, mold remediation costs that require demolition could start anywhere from $4 to $6 per square foot. Mold remediation crews may also have a minimum fee for services to ensure their business expenses are met even when they take on small mold jobs.
