How much does it cost to hire someone to remove mold?

Nothing is more terrifying to homeowners and business owners than spotting the first signs of mold growth. Mold grows and spreads so quickly that action must be taken immediately.

So of course, the first thing you’re thinking in these situations is,

“How much does it cost to remove mold?”

The cost for mold removal is contingent upon how much mold is present and what area it covers, and any additional services that need to be taken into consideration (such as removing carpet, disposing of materials, etc…) in order to properly remediate the problem. As a result of the wide variation of these factors, mold remediation costs can be anywhere from $500 to $5,000+. Also, the type of mold you have, the extent of the damage, the size of the impacted area, the types of materials infected will also impact your cost of remediation.

What A Mold Remediation Professional Will Do

Mold remediation companies will clean up your mold in a few days or less. 

Generally, the cleanup process entails:

  • Removing water-damaged, mold-infested materials.
  • Cleaning and disinfecting walls, carpet, and personal items.
  • Removing drywall and studs if mold damage is extensive.
  • Vacuuming with HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filtration.

Does Insurance Cover Mold Remediation?

Don’t presume your homeowner’s insurance will pay to fix your mold problems. Insurance typically pays if the problem results from an emergency already covered on your policy, like a burst pipe, but not if mold resulted from deferred maintenance, persistent moisture or seepage, or from floodwaters (unless you have flood insurance).

Check with your insurance agent to see if your particular mold problem is covered.

Air Sampling

Not every mold issue requires sampling. If you can see mold, sampling is necessary only if you must identify the actual mold species for medical or legal reasons. However, if you think mold is present but can’t actually see it, samples can confirm your suspicions. Also, sampling typically is used after cleanup to verify success.

Warning: Don’t even think about diagnosing your mold problems with a home testing kit. They don’t work. They’ll probably reveal some type of mold, but only because spores are always flying through the ambient air. These kits can’t:

  • Guarantee a statistically significant sample of air.
  • Confirm the presence of dead mold spores (which also cause health problems and allergens).
  • Determine baseline levels of mold in your home or business in order to compare results with other non-mold-infected areas.
