I only needed my stairs cleaned and paid a fair price. Their rates are much better than what some of the other overpriced carpet cleaning companies wanted to charge me. I will probably use them again if their rates don't increase. They did a good job and was very professional.

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.

We hired Breathe Pure for Remediation. We had another company out that found mold in our ducts. Breathe Pure came highly recommended from someone I worked with. Honestly, I didn’t realize the seriosusness of what we had going on. This company was amazing. They came in and handled it. It was like it never happened.

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.

    The Pros did our new floors. Had tiled installed and had the carpets removed. Very good company. Their price was right. The crew that came out to do the work were on time and cleaned up nicely. The installation came out great. My wife and I would use this company again.

      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.
