With the passing of my mother, it was time for me and my two sisters to sell the family home. The house was dated. We were very fortunate to find Ken. He treated my parent’s house like it was his own, not like most contractors that have a , “That’s good enough to get paid” attitude. Many of the rooms had 30 year old wallpaper on them, Ken’s team expertly removed the wallpaper, repaired the walls to the point that you cannot tell they ever had wallpaper on them. After the wallpaper removal, Ken’s team painted the entire inside of the house, including the basement walls and basement floor. Many people have come by and commented, “I can’t believe how nice it looks, it’s a real improvement.” We were so impressed with Ken’s work that we hired him to paint the 48 year old aluminum siding and shutters. The siding and shutters look like they did back in 1966. If you are looking for a contractor that puts your needs far out front of his, Ken is your man.

Hello, My sister recommended me to have GTC/Steamatic do repairs painting and mold removal for our house. Most of the mold was located in a closet off the kitchen and we wanted the first floor painted. The job was done in about 3 weeks as they had to rebuild an archway from the living room to dining room. We are very happy with all the work done and Bo gave us the best price with a bundle discount compared to the other contractors. Otherwise we wouldn't have gotten to rebuild the archway. My new furniture arrives next week and it looks like a total remodel I highly recommend Bo Tony and Marina for any project you've got going on in your home!

I had what I though was attic mold in my Northbrook home. I had a mold inspection done and sent a sample to be check to make sure it was mold. I then got a referral to a mold remediation company nearby that gave me a fair price and did a great job.I thought this was better than just calling a mold remediation company first.

I had a few mold remediation contractors come over to see if I had a mold problem from when I had some water leaks in the basement. My kids had been sick ongoing. The guys looked around and sniffed around and said they didn't see anything wrong. Healthy Home was the only company to suggest van air test to check my levels of mold spores in the basement. They were seriously elevated. Healthy Home sanitized my basement in one day.

had a mold remediation guy tell me I had to have a big $$ job done to get rid of mold spots in my bathroom. And kind of went on about how dangerous it was if it was 'black mold'. It didn't sound right to me, so I had Healthy Home come out and do mold testing. I have a run of the mill type of mold that makes your bread moldy. They gave me a list of things to do like install a better bathroom fan (my barely worked) to get the moisture out and told me products to use to clean instead of bleach. Glad I got a second opinion!!!!!

We had a disaster with a flooded basement. I googled and found Restoration 1 at 7:30am while the flooding was continuing. David, the owner, answered the phone and said he would be at my house in 3 hours. He was and worked until 1:00am to get my basement cleaned (carpet gutted, Sheetrock removed, mold removal etc. Everything. He was back everyday for 5 days afterwards insuring the basement was dry (left fans and dehumidifiers) until it was 100% done! These guys are fantastic and very fair pricing. I called Servpro first because of their advertising. They put me on a list and called me back two days later just as a point of reference. I hope I never need these services again but if I do I will call David and his team at restoration 1. Highly recommended is an extreme understatement!!!!!

My husband and I went through the time to get quotes from 4 businesses specializing in mold remediation for our attic. Of all 4 estimates, ERS (Steve Kelsey was our direct contact) was the most professional and was the ONLY one who did not try any sales pushing. Very honest and thorough about the process they would be doing on our attic, were punctual and respectful. We will only go through ERS in the future and will recommend them to family and friends.

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.
