Curtis responded very quickly to my thumbtack submission. He came out to our house and inspected it for mold. He said that our central air vents needed to be cleaned out. He did the job a few days later. He was quick and clean. The price was very reasonable.

Daryl came to our home to inspect the mold that had been spreading from our basement floor, and up the walls. He was honest and very professional. He also gave us advice other professionals did not which ultimately ended up being very helpful for us today. I HIGHLY recommend this company to anyone needing their services!

He was very thorough in all areas and did a great job, answered all of our questions, provided very valuable information, and we would recommend him to anyone who is in need of a quality home inspection. We even got the report the same day. Thanks again Brian!!

On short notice came to evaluate a mold issue. Discovered no problem with water pipes but rather a situation that could be resolved by cleaning with bleach. Thank you for setting us at ease and also for answering our questions going forward to resolve the issue.

JAMESTOWN, RI Steve went beyond my expectations. He did a free very thorough mold inspection of a house and and barn I was considering buying. He explained everything and told me my options. He also send a detailed estimate promptly. Besides that he went out of his way to help me find contractors who would give me free estimates on work that had nothing to do with the mold remediation I called him for. In the end, the purchase of the property fell through, so I did not have the mold remediation done, but I will definitely call Steve again when I find the right property. I highly recommend NEPS.!

I am extremely pleased with the work that Patrick completed in my home. He was extremely thorough in his assessment of our mold problem. Although the mold problem was marginal, Patrick took the time to explain why the mold originated and what would need to be completed to ensure that the cause of the mold was rectified. The cause of the mold was lack of ventilation, and in my opinion very tedious work to complete. Patrick completed the ventilation work needed, in addition to patching over vents already in place so that no animals, birds etc. enter through my roof. Over the course of his work, he identified some other issues/upkeep that needed to be addressed and corrected those issues as well. He was honest, extremely fair in his pricing and I would hire him again in a minute, however, I’m am confident my mold problem will never be an issue again, thanks to his extremely thorough work.

We were in the process of buying a home and did a home inspection. The home inspector told us that there was evidence of mold like substance in the attic and therefore we hired Jason to do a mold inspection. Jason was quick to respond and made himself available on the weekend. He checked the home thoroughly and told us there was no need of additional testing. He did all this for free. Very rarely do you find such honest and genuine people these days. We would highly recommend Jason.

I called Mike due to sitting water in basement, when electricity went out, and sump would work, during two of our March storms. He called back promptly and in discussing my needs, he politely told me I didn't need him, I just needed a simple product he suggested and I am having my handyman spray the concrete and scrub it, for a fraction of what his, or any other mold services would have cost. I knew it wasn't severe, but I was impressed by his professionalism in sharing what to do without charging me for his advice. If I ever have a bigger mold issue I will definitely call Mike!

Donny Lambert was unbelievably helpful and supportive in helping me sort through a leak from the bathroom above mine. It is going to be a matter of getting reimbursed after a lawsuit, unfortunately, and he provided information and paperwork to back up that process for me. I am in much better shape going forward to present my case after having Bona Fide do their testing and with Donny’s subsequent report. I’d refer them to absolutely anyone who wants to deal with professional, ethical and honest people that you can trust. They don’t remediate any mold levels that are problematic , so there’s no conflict of interest there. Great company! Highly recommend them!

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
