Mike came out for what I thought was mold remediation. He thoroughly checked every nook and cranny and didn't find any. Turns out it was just shoddy drywall installation. Didn't charge me a dime. Really impressed with their honesty. I hope to never have to call Restoration 1 again, but will keep their number if I ever do.

We engaged the service of Bob Petersen to conduct the inspection of our new home. First, the knowledge and experience that he brought were tremendous and he was able to teach us about the future care and maintenance of our new home. Also, past the excitement of our beautiful new home, he brought to line a few items that we definitely need to have taken care of prior to our closing. I highly recommend Mr. Petersen for any inspection job. Finally, I have bought previous homes and had other inspectors. After the fact, I wondered what value they had really brought for me. There is no question what value Mr. Petersen brought for my husband and my future home in Round Rock, Texas. You will not be disappointed or question. Thank you.

We noticed mold in our ceiling, and had no idea how big of an issue we had on our hands. John came by for a free consultation, and gave us tons of advice. He actually walked us through the steps we'd take if we chose to do it ourselves, and was very friendly and helpful. We ended up attempting the project ourselves, with the idea to call John if things got out of hand. We were lucky that it turned out to be a very small leak, so we were able to handle things on our own, but his advice really helped! If we have an issue in the future, we will certainly give him a call.

I'm very pleased with the work Joe and his team did today. This procedure was so much easier than the traditional mold remediation. I was originally looking at months worth of work. This saved me so much time and money. I would definitely recommend for anyone needing help with mold.

Testimonials Knowledgeable, competent, experienced, meticulous, sharing, and proficient are just a few words that come to mind when describing my experience with Mr. Rod Dunn and Inspector Clouseau Home Inspections. My mother and I are so glad that the other inspector, who was going to help, bailed on us. What's more, we found Mr. Dunn and Inspector Clouseau Home Inspections through the Better Business Bureau. When we learned of that plus his professional affiliations, we knew we would be all right. It was absolutely a blessing in disguise! Words really cannot convey how we felt when Mr. Dunn said he could fit us into his busy schedule at the last minute. We were so overwhelmed by his consideration for our situation. That showed his compassion to help others, and his dedication to see that his field of expertise is well represented. In fact, his work was incredibly noteworthy. Mother and I saw that Mr. Dunn had a passion and understanding for his work by the depth and quality of his explanations to us and by the completely thorough report (with pictures) we received from him almost immediately. He did what he said he would do and more; we didn't have to wait days or weeks for the report either. In fact, Mr. Dunn rose to the levels of expertise, efficiency, and abilities we have never seen before. We are definitely going to contact Mr. Rod Dunn and Inspector Clouseau Home Inspections again for our final home inspection once it is time. His high scale of experience, attention to detail, willingness to explain everything, patience and ability to deal with others, and his due diligence warrant it. We are only too happy to recommend Mr. Dunn and Inspector Clouseau Home Inspections to family, friends, and coworkers. Our only regret is that those we know didn't get the benefit of Mr. Rod Dunn and Inspector Clouseau Home Inspections before they made their home purchases here. They really missed out! Thank goodness Mother and I didn't. Thank you! K. S., From Germantown, TN to San Antonio, TX As a real estate agent, I deal with many professionals, from other realtors, to brokers, to appraisers, to home inspectors. In my many years in the business, I have yet to meet a person with as much integrity and business ethics as Rod Dunn. No one is perfect, but unlike most people, Rod is true to his word and sees any problem out until resolved. This code of honor and work ethic are what set his company apart from the rest! Michelle Perales, Licensed Realtor I'm in the process of building a new home and wanted a second opinion when it came to the inspection before the pre-drywall walk through. Rod was not only on time, but gave a very thorough report, took digital pictures and educated me on things that I would have never thought to look for when building a home. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is thinking about building/purchasing a home. He pays attention to detail and is very reasonable in price. Rose Kukral, San Antonio My wife and I hired Rod because he was both listed in the Better Business Bureau, and he had excellent answers to our interview questions. During his four-hour inspection, he took his time to explain to us every aspect of what he was doing, why he was doing it, and what his findings meant. No question or concern was too great or too small. He was genuinely concerned with our well being and ensuring that we were 100% informed on the condition of our new home. Rod is an extremely competent, thorough, and empathic professional. We will certainly be enlisting his services in the future in addition to highly recommending him to our family, friends, and co-workers. Thanks again, Rod! Dave West, Schertz I would like to personally thank Rod as his professionalism is remarkable. I have received nothing short of clear, concise answers, detailed explanations, punctual timing and courteous service throughout the whole inspection. Inspections are never rushed, and no stone is left unturned. Rod is very thorough and what impressed me the most is that he puts himself in a home buyers' shoes. Buying a home is a big decision for many people, it was for me, and I'm thankful I put my trust into Inspector Clouseau Home Inspections. I would be more than happy to refer you to anyone in need of a great inspector. Mariana Garza, San Antonio I just wanted to say thanks for your hard work, and I know you'll say it's your job but sadly it's rare to find people who are so committed to doing more than the minimum. Thanks again for everything and we will definitely recommend you to everyone we can. Bradley Gilbert, San Antonio A friend of mine recommended that we use Inspector Clouseau Home Inspections because of the thorough work done and great price she received. I went straight to the website to submit my information for setting up an appointment, and within an hour Rod called me. We worked out a time for him to do the inspection the very next day, which was great, since we were on a time table for buying this house. I met with Rod after he did his inspection of the house the next afternoon and we went through his entire 20-page report. He explained everything in a way so that I was able to understand and yet I could tell he knew what he was doing. He e-mailed his report later that night and included pictures of the problem areas he found. It was very clear and concise yet thorough. I was also glad that I was able to pay my bill online through his website. Thanks again! Mary Riedel, San Antonio Rod did a wonderful, thorough job on my home inspection and provided a detailed report with digital pictures. He was punctual to the appointment, responded promptly to my phone calls and emails, and took the time to follow up on my questions - even a month later. Rod seems very committed to serving and satisfying his customers. Given the quality of his work, I was pleasantly surprised by his rates. I would not hesitate to recommend Clouseau Inspections. Kristina Breaux, San Antonio Thanks Rod, for all your help and patience. I really learned a lot from you about the home, and my brother was very impressed with your thoroughness on the inspection as well. I would have no problem giving a potential customer a recommendation if you even need one! Kathleen Salvemini, San Antonio Inspector Clouseau Home Inspections was a pleasure to do business with. Rod's thoroughness, attention to detail and explanations helped me understand what I was about to get into with an investment property. In the end, I walked away from a potential headache. His spiritual guidance and encouragement was also a blessing in my time of need. What a blessing to have an inspector who knows his work and is strong in the Lord, too. Elizabeth Delgado, San Antonio My home may soon be offered for sale. In anticipation of selling our residence, I engaged Rodney Dunn to perform an inspection so that I would know in advance of any problems that a potential buyer might raise and correct them if appropriate. Mr. Dunn completed his inspection in about two hours and returned a written report within hours along with a series of photographs supporting his findings. His report followed the State of Texas guidelines and his fees were quite reasonable. In his report, he indicated things that were potentially damaging to the structure, safety measures I should consider, and items that were violations of current building code but were grandfathered under the code existing at the time the home was constructed. I found his work quite thorough and complete, and would recommend him to anyone considering a home inspection. Thomas Holloran, San Antonio

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.
