How Much Does Mold Remediation Cost?
It’s hard to give an exact estimate for mold removal and restoration without first doing the proper testing and inspecting the scope of the damage. Your homeowner’s insurance policy may or may not cover the costs of mold removal and remediation. Some cost factors include:
- Size of area affected
- Addressing the source of moisture
- Location of mold
- Amount of damage caused by mold
- Reconstruction costs
Where Mold is Most Likely to be Found
Mold can occur in any part of your home, but these are some areas where mold contamination is common.
Mold thrives in damp, dark, poorly ventilated places, and basements provide these favorable conditions for mold growth. Left unchecked, basement mold can spread and cause costly damage to your property. We’ve found basement mold to be quite common in the greater Albany NY area.
Mold in attics can occur due to leaks in windows, roofing or siding. Insufficient ventilation can also cause mold from warm moist air rising into the attic and mixing with cooler attic air creating condensation. It’s important to check your attic occasionally for mold as leaving the problem unchecked can lead to structural deterioration.
Crawl space mold can be the most difficult of mold removal projects due to space restrictions and tools it takes to properly remove mold from these areas. Crawl spaces are susceptible to mold growth because moisture can easily accumulate there. It often goes unnoticed to homeowners since they rarely access their crawl space.
Bathrooms are an ideal environment for mold to flourish due to humidity, condensation and poor ventilation. Leaky plumbing can also contribute to mold growth. If your toilets, sinks or pipes drip and you don’t notice right away, the water can cause a mold problem.
Like bathroom, kitchens are susceptible to mold because of humidity and ventilation problems like under sinks or above cooking surfaces. Malfunctioning appliances like dishwashers and refrigerators can cause water damage and mold.
Mold Remediation FAQ
We recommend to first find one that is licensed and certified to perform mold remediation. You should also check review sites like Google and Facebook to see the reputation of the company. Ask your friends and neighbors. We suspect a few of them may even have worked with us in the past.
In New York State, you’ll need to hire two separate companies when dealing with a mold issue. A mold inspection company and a mold remediation company. One company cannot hold both licenses, in order to prevent a conflict of interest. First, you’ll need to contact a mold inspector, we can recommend a couple. The mold inspector will make a form mold assessment report, that we the mold remediation company will then use to remove the mold from your home.
Generally it does not. It may be covered under certain circumstance such as a covered peril. If in doubt, speak to your homeowners insurance company before contacting a mold removal company.
You’ll want to stay clear of the area that the mold remediation team is working on, but you can stay in rooms that are away from the remediation process. Mold removal companies will set up containment zones of where they are removing the mold.
