Do yourself a favor hire Dave and you'll find very quickly you made the right choice. We were inspected and given cost estimates by ORKIN which were completely unreasonable. I posted the job on Thumbtack and connected with Dave who was honest, respectful, reasonable and explained everything with options. It has been a wonderful experience and a world of difference from the sales rep from ORKIN. Couldn't be happier with the entire process!

These guys are as good as it gets, and I don't say that lightly... they removed the water from my entire basement within 2 days and they were able to dry it out without any mold growth.

I was very satisfied with Emory and Moldstoppers. Emory appeared to have a great eye for detail when he 1st inspected my crawlspace and submitted his quote. His pricing was very competitive and he seemed to be the right choice among the 3 suppliers I interviewed. His team did everything he promised to remove the mold from my crawlspace, seal all floor gaps, install the vapor barrier, and with no disruption to our daily routine. I was even more impressed when on the final day his team refused take payment until Emory could return to make a final inspection. When he did, he found a minor issue and promised his team would return within 2 days to fully complete the project. He did everything he said he would do and more. I am hopeful I never have an issue like mold again, but if I do, I know who to call to get the job done right.

I hired David to do a Home Inspection on a home that was built in the late 1970's or early 1980's. David quoted me a very reasonable price to do the home inspection compared to the home inspectors that many of the realtors are accustomed to using in the Greenville area. I was able to meet David at the house and observed that he was very meticulous and detailed in his inspection. When I received the inspection report, I was blown away by the pages of details related to concerns that he found! I shared this report with my realtor and she was also blown away with how thorough he was with his inspection. She indicated to me that she would definitely like to recommend David to some of her other clients. I've had different home inspectors look over homes that I've bought in the past and miss some fairly substantial problems. Until now, I've never seen this kind of detail and thoroughness in an inspection report.

First and foremost I try to treat my clients the way I would want to be treated if I were paying someone to do the job my client is paying me to do. I will complete the project as specified or stay as long as need be to get the clients satisfaction of a job well done. My craftsmanship and attention to detail standards is higher than a lot of builders I have seen in the last 10 years. Do you really want to hire an outfit that employs only recently entered immigrants at $5/hour to do a job you expect to last at the least 5 years. Well, most GC's do that now and charge you the same no matter what so they can make more money. If a GC pulls up to your project driving a 2016 $60,000 fully loaded Ford Diesel Truck, and his crew pulls in behind him all crammed into an old 1984 Chevy beater work truck, that should be a clue. These immigrants are even told not to put the required amount of fasteners (nails, screws, staples,etc.) that code requires just to pinch even more pennies from you. The GC will still charge you the same amount as if they had followed building codes and not pass the savings on to you.

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.
