we needed an inspection because one of the tenants complained about mold and was scared of what it could be. Mike responded quickly to the quotes and to the questions I had and he was able to accommodate us for the next day due to the urgency of the request. I was not able to be at the appointment while he took the samples. He noted mold on another site so he took a 3rd sample which costed an additional 45$, but otherwise everything turned out to be what we had arranged over the phone. The report and lab results were issued a week later (as expected) and he added recommendations on how it should be cleaned. Please note the report is a standard report, you can probably ask what a typical one looks like before you schedule the service. I am happy he took the time to explain the results, potential consequences and educate me and my tenant on mold.

I hired this company from thumbtack for what i originally thought would just be mold, the mold was caused by a water leak we had, turns out, this company is a water damage restor company in addition to removing the mold. I hired them to do both and everything turned out great! they worked my insurance company to get it covered and got the job done in no time. they were prompt and friendly, everyone knew what they were doing and what they were talking about. I was very happy with the outcome and would definatly hire them again (hopefully wont need to)

East-Tex Eco Services & owner Marc Patel exemplify professionalism, dedication, & excellence! Not only was Marc knowledgeable, thorough, & very conscientious, but his work was of the highest order. His willingness to answer our many questions demonstrates his genuine concern for his clients. He carefully documented every stage of the remediation process with photos, explanations, & reports. He always took time to explain, offer options, & think creatively about unusual issues. Marc even handled several unexpected smaller tasks that cropped up. He's honest, likable, & an all-round nice guy with an exceptional work ethic. In Nov. 2015, we discovered that our 100-yr-old historic house was contaminated with toxic mold. The "small" original problem was the tip of the iceberg. The contamination turned out to be massive - the remediation required was vast. Marc adjusted his approach to thoroughly address each new discovery until the entire problem had been revealed & resolved. We are pleased to recommend Marc & East-Tex Eco very highly to any prospective customers! Bonnie Goodrich & Dan Black

    We needed help extracting water and drying our floors, from the recent floods in Houston. We contacted Elite Emergency Solutions and the team was very responsive, considering the situations all over the city. Erick (owner) was on-site with the team and explained everything that would need to be done, breaking down the information in detail, so that it was easy to understand. They didn't waste anytime getting the equipment setup and running. Everyone courteous and professional and after a few hours, everything was clean and in order, and we have avoided any further damage or future issues with mold. Elite Emergency Solutions is the perfect name for this company and they are highly recommended!

    We hired Precision Construction to dry our home and spray for mold after the August 12th flood in South Louisiana. After calling several companies his company was able to get to us quickly over others especially since time is crucial when dealing with a flooded home. They also had reasonable rates. We needed some cabinets removed as as well as some sheetrock and insulation removed behind them and his company was able to do this in addition to drying our home out and spraying for mold. This saved us time from having to search for someone to do the tear outs. They also kept drying logs and moisture readings. Tom Pham was professional and patiently worked with us when we had to deal with our insurance company and get paperwork. He was able to give us quotes on the spot with the software he uses. His team was fast and efficient. Would recommend him if you need any type of work like this done.

      John Bierman and his company did a very thorough and excellent job in removing all of the mold in my house and drying it out at a very fair price. They really know what they are doing! Allot of other "mold remediators" and I say that in quotes because after Hurricane Harvey there were allot of demolition contractors running around Houston with a bottle of antimicrobial spray on them that called themselves mold experts when they couldn't even spell the word mold. John is the real deal! I highly recommend John and his company.

      Mr. Meyer and his team have always been very prompt in answering my questions and helping to assess the situation with any of my clients' properties. I believe they have accurately identified potential challenges that our property owners will be required to mitigate in instances where water penetration and potential mold issues may arise.

        There are many companies out there that provide mold testing, but few that specialize in it. Usually the people that provide this service are restoration companies that take tests on an estimate to prove a problem exists or a home inspector that may offer it as an add on service. Since this is the only service we provide and we cover so many areas, we are confident that we have seen more lab results from mold testing than anyone out there.

        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.
