Alex Maringa and his crew from Capital Janitorial Company came out on a Sunday to clean my gutters. They were very friendly and did everything I expected and more. They suggested mold retardant be added to the roof since mold was removed a year ago and is already showing signs of growing back. They also placed screens in the areas of the gutters where the downspouts are to prevent leaves, etc. from clogging them in the future. You can find them on the Thumbtack app. They worked hard and quickly for a very fair price - excellent value!

Patrick is excellent!!! I happened to see Rat run in my backyard, obviously I was freaked out. I called several companies but Patrick eased my ind immediately. He even left his crew to work on another job to meet me and answer my concerns right away. He took the time to explain everything and arranged to get my situation taken care of the next day. We did a boracare (SP) treatment for a lifetime warranty against any pests, mold etc to protect our foundation. He also did a decontaminate and covered any possible entry points. Because of all the rain there is standing water. He took the time to call me and let me know about the standing water he found and even helped me find a company that can help me to address that situation. I cannot thank him enough for his diligence and help. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

We initially called Brad for some basic household repairs and interior paint while getting ready to sell our home. Luckily, we pointed out a small crack in the drywall, and upon closer inspection it was found to be squishy (yikes!) leading us to pull back the baseboard and discover mold running the length of the wall. The roof gutter had been built into the exterior siding and had been leaking into the wall for years. If Brad's team had not discovered this and made it an immediate priority to repair, it could have impacted the sale of the house and possibly led to future lawsuits against us from the eventual buyer. Thanks to A1 acting quickly, our gutter/siding/interior wall problem got all fixed up, the new paint and carpet look great and the house sold within days of the work being completed. What could have delayed the sale for months only took a couple of weeks to remedy. Thank you Brad and team! We recommend A1, and we will be calling them to help us fix up our new house too.

Larry was prompt and professional. He was happy to discuss our options. He was prepared to do a mold test right away. I'd give 5 stars, but the lab results took longer than the 3-4 business days that he quoted me. He was also kind enough to give me a bid for full mold remediation.

I hired them to do a mold remediation when selling my house. To be honest it started off a little rocky when an employee no longer with the company missed spots of mold. This could have led to some issues but I was able to work with Jason who did everything he could to fix the issue. He personally went back and finished the job himself to the satisfaction of everyone involved. He was able to turn a possible negative experience into a very positive one. I would recommend them to someone after my interactions with Jayson.

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.

As a real estate agent in Portland, I know that one thing that can jeopardize a sale would be mold and/or a smell in a home. I have used Green Home Solutions on a couple of houses, and I can attest that they do what they say they can! I called Tom on a house, and he was out the next day assessing the situation, and he gave me a couple of options. Once he was done, the house was odor free, and the buyer was very happy. I would not hesitate to use Green Home Solutions again! Kathy MacNaughton

We received 4 bids for mold remediation and went with ServiceMaster because of their in-depth and thoughtful proposal. Kevin and the tech Jake were amazing from day 1. Kevin was very responsive and checked in throughout the project, ensuring everything was going well. And Jake arrived early the first morning and immediately got to work. We had an unforeseen issue come up that put a delay on things and Jake was more than accommodating! He even came on the weekend to help us get the project finished on-time. All along, Kevin and Jake were so upfront and honest about the work. So honest that they even recommended against doing some work that turned out to be totally unnecessary - work that they could have easily told us we needed done and charged us for. That honesty, hard work and amazing customer service goes a long way. We'll definitely use ServiceMaster All Phase Restoration again!

Inspection went well and covered the expected areas. Only thing I had to do more research on was smoke/Co detectors as the inspector didn't know the laws or even if the detectors were co or not.

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.
