Just got home from deployment and while my hubby did his best, so much had not been touched since I left so there was one years worth of dirt on a lot of stuff. On top of that we have 2 children and nieces and nephews that are always with us. There was a lot of scum, the ovens had never once been cleaned since installation, and there was dust on every horizontal surface. Kiana did a fantastic job getting rid of all the scum, dust, mold, and mystery muck. The ovens, fridge, and sinks looked brand new when she was done with them. She also managed to organize the one million toys in each of the kids bedrooms. It turns out, the tub is white, not eggshell (who knew). My house has never looked this organized and been so clean. 2 Living rooms, a dining room, a kitchen, 2.5 baths, and 4 bedrooms later every thing sparkled and she still had a great attitude. It was very pleasant working with her and we will definitely be using her services again.

James, Steve, and Todd came to our house and did a thorough analysis of our situation concerning a very serious scare with mold. For two and a half days they proceeded to facilitate a thoughtful and caring approach to what we thought might disallow us from inhabiting our home for many days. After one night spent with our relatives we returned to a house that had been wiped, cleaned, and air scrubbed to a point that was immediately appreciated. James is a very fine communicator, instructor, and leader of his team. Steve and Todd are essential to the practical and labor intensive procedures. Every question was addressed with calmness and understanding. Logic, hard work, and intelligence ruled the day. We appreciate what they did for us and would recommend NOVA to anyone who wants to reap the benefits of their ways of "doing business". BTW they were one third the price of the nearest competitor. Our mold inspection following the facilitation was declared negative by an independent Mold Testing company. (MIT) Thank you gentlemen.

Frank, the owner of Peninsula Carpet Cleaning, came out and explained the cleaning process and expectations. He thoroughly cleaned our carpets and added a whole house deodorizer for free, as a thank you for our business. Frank also worked with us to explain how the estimate was done and helped us realize a 15 percent customer discount! Excellent customer service.

Great experience all the way around! This was not the least expensive bid I received, but I'm convinced it was the best! Equipment was in great condition. Technician was an obvious professional. Inspected carpets first, pre-treated stains, and completed a walk-through inspection at the end to ensure the job was done right. Work was guaranteed, and everything was excellent. It's worth it to pay a little more to get the right service, the right equipment, and the right professionals to do the right job! Great work!

SEVA contacted me within minutes of my request for a pro and that's exactly what I encountered. I needed them to take a look at my a/c ducting due to a noticeable loss of flow. They conducted a thorough inspection of my crawl space and was able to give valid details of what needed to be done to include. At a reasonable price and after all work was done I am highly satisfied with the product they have left me. I would definitely recommend SEVA and hope to work with them again in the future.

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.
