Mold removal can not be quoted over the phone. A proper mold inspection is crucial to determine the scope of work that should be written down. How much of the dry wall should be removed? Do we need to Ice Blast the mold? What is the best method necessary to remove the mold? What will the teams on site follow? All that is in the scope. The inspection should help understand how the mold growth occurred (what the source of the mold growth was) and how the causes of the mold can be fixed effectively to make sure your indoor environment is returned to a safe and healthy one.

The mold removal company you choose will have one of their experienced and trained inspectors perform a free visible mold inspection and should also provide you with a free estimate. If needed a third party hygienist, environmentalist will be introduced should the inspector think the scope is unclear or bigger than anticipated. The 3rd party involvement addresses the “conflict of interest” issue since they are not paid for removal, they are paid directly from the customer to detect and scope the problem.
In some cases, mold testing or air sampling will be required to determine if the mold spores have spread to other areas of your indoor environment and to ensure that your indoor air quality is healthy for you and your loved ones. Mold spores are microscopic and without air testing it is impossible to determine if there are any unwanted mold spores in your indoor air that can’t be seen by the naked eye. The 3rd party industrial hygienist or mold certified expert will be required to perform the testing, sampling and inspection and then create a detailed report with the scope of work necessary to follow. The 3rd party may also do testing/inspection on site throughout the mold removal process and upon completion of the mold remediation.
