Average Mold Remediation and Removal Cost
What is the average cost of mold remediation?
Mold remediation costs are mainly affected by three different factors that make it difficult to give a cost estimate without first assessing your home. These three factors are:
- The size of your building
- The scope of the mold infestation
- The type of removal method you choose to use
These three factors combine with your home’s unique ecology to make each remediation job slightly different than the next. Some homes may be more prone to mold growth because of environmental factors like wind, rain, exposure, and elevation, while others may be constructed with outdated materials that encourage mold growth. All these factors (and more) are part of the complex way we determine remediation costs - one size does not fit all, and by taking these factors in consideration, we can ensure that we give you the fairest and accurate quote possible.
What is the best product to kill mold?
In our opinion, the best product to kill mold is a professional mold remediation. While there are many suggestions on the internet for using different household chemicals for mold removal, they have, in our experience, a 99% failure rate. Let’s take bleach, for example. Many homeowners use bleach as part of their cleaning routine, and bleach can be very effective against mold on non-porous surfaces such as tiles or countertops. But mold requires organic materials to live on, like textiles, wood, or drywall. Most of these materials are extremely porous, and using bleach on them is more likely to spread mold and damage those materials without actually affecting the mold. At MoldTech, we use a number of different science-led techniques to remediate mold-infested materials that not only safely remove the mold but also ensure the entire organism is killed.
Can you clean up mold yourself?
At MoldTech, we never recommend that people try to clean up mold growth themselves. This is for a few reasons, but the most important is your health and safety. Some types of mold can be extremely toxic and can have serious short and long term health effects. The second most important reason is that mold is VERY easy to spread, and you may inadvertently make the problem larger, and most complex to solve, in your effort to remove it yourself. A professional mold remediation with MoldTech ensures that your health and safety is prioritized using modern equipment, containment, and health and safety practices.
What is the process for mold remediation?
The process for mold remediation can be summed up in three distinct steps - safety, removal, and cleaning. Safety is at the core of every MoldTech remediation - we contain our work site to ensure no cross contamination in your home, and use tools like HEPA filters and negative pressure to catch any disturbed particles.
Removal happens in a thorough way lead by the latest science-based techniques, methodology, and technology. Any contaminated materials are safely removed according to local guidelines and bylaw.
The last step is the most important, and it’s one that MoldTech excels at - cleaning. This step ensures that your indoor air quality tests clear for mold spores, and that when we leave your home looks as if we were never even there.
MoldTech, we meet these and many other criteria associated to ensure the safety of customers. For the safe removal od mold in your home or office, contact us today.
