How much does it cost to remove mold from my basement?

Any time mold is present, a mold remediation professional should be called to deal with the situation, but this is particularly true in the case of mold in a basement after a flood or burst pipe. Basement mold growth can quickly become quite extensive because of the high moisture content that already exists in most basements. Humid damp basements are more likely to develop mold growth than their drier, better temperature controlled counterparts, but all basements are susceptible. 

Mold and Your Basement

The main cause of mold is home water damage! If you have been the unlikely victim of a basement flood from a burst pipe or natural disaster, it is imperative that you get the water pumped out and dried up immediately. Any standing water is a welcome invitation for mold growth. But just removing the water you can see is not enough. Water is crafty! It can get behind baseboards, under flooring, up into drywall and plenty more places that you cannot see. This is why it is so important to bring in water damage specialists in the first 24 hours after an incident occurs, before your basement even has a chance to start growing mold.

Getting Rid of Basement Mold

Basement mold remediation can be costly depending on the size of your basement and the extent of the home water damage. Larger basements have more area for mold growth to occur, which means that mold removal services for them can be more expensive. Similarly, the extent of the water damage in a home that caused the mold growth initially will affect the cost as well because several feet of flood water can cause a lot more mold growth than a slow leaking pipe. In general, basement mold removal from a reputable company is usually under $10K, but your specific circumstances will determine the final mold remediation price.
