Requested to have Rainbow International visit my home after we were flooded by Harvey to do an inspection. Wade Hoggard was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Luckily, I had no signs of mold in my home.. but had I, I would have trusted them to renovate my home.

I actually didn't end up needing a mold removal service. Johnny came out the next morning to examine our crawl space. He could have easily persuaded me that I had a terrible issue that needed to be addressed quickly. Instead, he gave me a few options and ways to remedy it myself without breaking the bank. He was courteous and very helpful. Will definitely be using him in the future - if need be.

I cannot recommend this company enough; very knowledgeable regarding their services. They came to check out mold on my ceiling that was morphing on a daily basis. The staff were personable, on schedule and took time to explain the problem which turned out to be something minor. I am so thankful for their expertise and will tell anyone to not hesitate to hire them.

Bob Pelham and his associate from Flood Kings came to my house to examine the water damage from an overflowing sink. The water had overflowed for an hour or more and flowed under a hardwood floor. The area impacted included a corridor, a dining room, and a portion of a living room and wet bar. Several days had passed since the water intrusion and the floors were cupped. Bob and his associate came equipped with water extraction equipment consisting of flat panels which were taped to the floor and tied through hoses to a suction fan. A dehumidifier was placed near the fan. The fan drew air from under the floor removing moisture. Bob and his associate checked moisture levels every two or three days until the moisture level reached the normal reading and the panels were removed after two weeks. The cupping is completely gone in most areas affected and is greatly reduced in the remaining areas. It is likely I will not need to do any repair work to the floors. The chance for mold growth to occur was largely eliminated by the air passing over the underfloor until dry. I cannot say enough about the quick response of Bob and his associate from Flood Kings and the thorough job they did to insure my satisfaction. I was convinced before I called them that the floors were ruined and would have to be replaced. My wife's mother had passed away the night before the flood and we had several house guests for the funeral by the time I found out about Flood Kings. We could not rip the floors out at that time and deal with all that goes along with replacing and refinishing floors. I was just hoping that his process would eliminate mold and buy us some time until we needed to replace the floor. I was elated to see the results and to know that at most, I may need to do some light surface work to a portion of the floor. Thanks Bob and Flood Kings.

During all of the heavy rains last year, we identified a couple of spots that the water was making its way into our house. The main spot was in a corner of our master bedroom that is usually covered with a nightstand and doesn't get a lot of traffic. We bought the house in 2011 during the drought, so it wasn't until the heavy rains last year that we noticed we had a problem. I felt sure that it had probably been a problem for a while, but we just never noticed it until the heavy rains happened in 2015. After the roof repairs were done to address the source of the problem, I called up Gerry at PuroClean. Since it was not an emergency like a burst water heater or pipe that would leave large amounts of water or sewage in places it shouldn't be, he scheduled a time to come over and assess the situation. On the day he was to come over, he called shortly before arriving to say that he was en route and to confirm our address. Gerry and his team were very thorough, knowledgable and professional. We showed Gerry the corner on our master bedroom floor that we noticed the other day was wet. We also showed him pictures that we had taken with our phones when we first discovered the issue. Gerry took several readings with a moisture meter from several different spots in the room to confirm what we had found. Gerry went over with us what would need to be done to resolve the problem. He provided very detailed and helpful information that we could understand. He also gave me pointers on what I could do and products I could use should the same type of issue happen in the future. The pictures and other larger furniture objects like dressers were removed from the room. The king-sized bed was covered with plastic and moved away from the problem area in the room. The supply and return registers in the room were also covered with plastic and sealed off. The A/C was turned off too to help prevent the spread of anything harmful like mold. The baseboards, drywall, and insulation were all removed in the problem areas. First a small area of sheetrock and insulation around where the water was noticed on the floor was removed. Then gradually more and more sheetrock and insulation were removed until Gerry was confident that the entire scope of the problem was exposed. In doing this work, we actually found mold in another part of the room that was due to water at some point in the past overflowing the gutters and running down the windows in the bedroom. (I actually fixed the cause of this problem a few years ago when I added another downspout to the back of the house between the master bedroom windows.) The insulation and sheetrock were bagged safely and removed from the house. Then the areas that had mold on them were treated with some peroxide. After that, blowers were set up in the room along with HEPA filters to dry things out and remove any mold that was loose in the air. About three or four days later, Gerry returned to check on things and to ensure everything was dry. He did a visual check and he also checked with the moisture meter to confirm that things were sufficiently dry. Then the blowers and filters were turned off and removed from the room. Next, he applied some special encapsulation paint for mold to prevent it from spreading in case there was any small amount remaining within any of the wood framing in the treated areas. He also used another tool to check the air quality. The bed and the supply and return registers in the room were uncovered from the plastic and everything in the room was wiped down with another special type of cleaner. I would highly recommend Gerry and his team when you have restoration work like this that needs to be done. They are absolutely the best!

Home repairs are never pleasant but David made ours ideal. We had to have a previous leak for mold residue. David provided top notch customer service delivered with professionalism that was beyond anything I’ve ever had, and I’ve been a homeowner for over 20 years so I’ve had lots of repairs! He was prompt, courteous, shared his knowledge and did an excellent job. We had to have written proof of repairs and David was quick to give us the information we needed. I highly recommend if you are looking for prompt professional service delivered with integrity.

Great service! Michael was fast to respond and fit us in right away. We offered him carpet and tile from Hades (pet stains, mold, sticky crud, you name it - truly yucky) and he returned beautiful carpet and tile. Honestly, we never thought either could look this good again. All with a smile and very reasonable price.

We had mold removal, repairs after removal and had our upper deck screened in. This is a very professional company from customer service to the courteous and well trained employees. We even felt comfortable giving them a key as this is our vacation home. The work was excellent as well as cleanup. The screened deck turned out even better than we could imagine. We absolutely love it. I highly recommend this company. Pam Whelan

Herol was very helpful during the entire process. Herol responded right away to my query and scheduled a free assessment visit the first thing next day. Herol and his team was very thorough and checked everything out . The technician, Ben, was very knowledgeable and helpful. He explained everything and did an awesome job. Previously, I had called a different Company related to this issue and the worked performed was not up to satisfaction and left the work in between. That's when I reached out to Mackie Restoration Services. Considering my situation, he offered affordable pricing and right solution. The work was started right away. I asked them to be careful while removing the tiles so that I can re use them. Not only they carefully removed the tiles without breaking any but also bleached them out. The work performed was outstanding and I cannot recommend him highly enough. If anyone has any problems related to water restoration or mold remediation, I am sure Herol and his team will take care of it with utmost satisfaction. I can gladly say that my home is mold free!!

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.
