Very professional and well educated technicians. Let me say this that I have had other companies clean my carpet and was very impressed with Master's Touch Steam Cleaning process! Never have my carpets looked so good. Amazing these guys really do have the Master's Touch because my carpets have never looked so good. After years of dirt and grime they look brand new again! Company called and texted to let me know they were on their way. On time and cleaned very efficient. Highly recommend if you want the best call these guys! I will be using them again. A+

I normally don't leave reviews but for this service I have to. Mike and Mike both were very helpful with my mold situation. My kids bathroom had mold spots all on the ceiling. Instead of Restoration 1 giving me some standard mold removal estimate, they came to the house to actually diagnose my problem free of charge. They gave me the honest truth about my situation (it wasn't as bad as I thought) and gave me the do it yourself low cost remedy. I know a lot of professionals would not care to share that information and lose out on money. But for Restoration 1 to not be in the business off just taking peoples money they have earned my business for life. Go to Restoration 1 of Round Rock for your mold removal or restoration service!!

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.

AMAZING! When I hired them to clean my carpets in 2013 I was more then pleased. After a flood in 2014 I called them right away. I could not be more pleased with Shawn and his staff. They were there within minutes. Professional. Courteous. Timely. They took great care of us during the entire water extraction/mitigation process. They stayed in constant communication with us and went out of their way to go the extra mile during our personal crisis. I can't say enough. The. Best. Service. Period.

First Diffrence: Most companies think that if they simply put equipment on a job, that it has to dry. While this is true that wet will always go to dry if it can, taking this approach may take a while. The VDS will completely dry structure...PERIOD. No matter what kind of damage it is: Black, Gray, or Clean; regardless of how much there is: Class 1,2,3, or 4 the system will be utilized on every drying job to completely dry the structure. The fact is that most companies pull their equipment off the job with the structure still wet. Whether it is because of lack of training, or an inability to do the job correctly. These companies are jeopardizing the health of the homeowner and business. The reason we have a mold problem today is because most companies in our industry have a drying problem. Companies that employ the VDS have been trained to inspect all components of a structure to check for moisture, and have been educated in the best ways on how to dry them. Whether it is sheetrock, flooring, sub-floorig, plaster, structural wood or crawlspaces; when we pull our equipment off the job, it will be dry. Second difference: There is a lot of talk today about “rapidly drying” structures in the restoration industry...and for some great reasons. Companies are starting to wake up to the fact that we don’t have a “mold problem”, but rather a “drying problem”. The fact is, the faster a structure is completely dried, the better off both parties will be. By utilizing the Vortex Drying System (VDS) it should be possible to dry any structure within 72 hours. However, some material take in water slower than others, and release it slower as well.

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.
