How much does mold remediation cost?

Evidence of mold growth after water damage is something that no homeowner or business owner wants to find! If your home or office has suffered water damage after a flood or from a leaking pipe emergency, mold growth is a serious concern. Mold can begin growing in as little as 24 hours and be very costly to have removed if it is not addressed properly right away. This is why it is so important to fix water damage before mold growth occurs! The longer mold is allowed to grow, the more damage it can do and the sicker it can make anyone breathing in its spores.

Causes of Mold

Mold is most commonly found in places where home water damage has occurred and gone unnoticed or been left unaddressed; however, mold growth can also occur as a result of normal seasonal changes or due to the humid climate of particular regions. Typically there is mold under flooring, behind drywall, in attics, behind floor or ceiling trim (like baseboards or crown molding), in air vents, or behind large appliances. These are places where spores can settle in and start growing into colonies without being noticed. The result is something that destroy materials (even to the point of destablilizing a home's structural integrity if left alone) and make people sick with respiratory problems. 

Black Mold

Black mold is the most dangerous of all mold types. It is characterized by it's black (or sometimes greenish) color and slimy wet feel. Black mold grows more slowly than other forms of mold, but it has been known to kill people with compromised respiratory systems. No regions of the US are safe from black mold because it can easily grow in a variety of places on the types of materials commonly found in homes and offices. You should never try to remove black mold yourself. If you suspect that black mold is present in your home or workspace, call local mold remediation experts out right away so that they can inspect and test the mold in question.

Cost of Mold Remediation

The cost of mold remediation will depend on the type of mold present and the extent of the mold damage. While it's not easy for a mold removal professional to say how much your mold removal project will cost without inspecting the site, ballpark pricing is around:
Up to $1K for a small space
Up to $5K for walls, attic or air ducts
Up to $10K for a basement
Up to $30K for a whole home

Commercial mold removal will have different pricing because of the different nature of mold remediation in a business building setting where there can be multiple floors, stairways, elevators, cafeterias, parking structures, etc.
