Mold Removal Cost
Cost Of Mold Remediation For A Home or Office Building
How to determine costs for a mold removal project and how to budget for mold. Being prepared for a mold situation is important and obtaining the proper insurance should be considered.
When associating a budget for mold remediation it’s important to consider and factor in the different levels of mold which are present and how severe mold is present in the home. Prices will vary by location but in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware you can call CRD Restore for an estimate. How to determine where the mold is present is important and should be completed by a separate company so there is no conflict of interest. Indoor Environmental Professionals or Industrial Hygienists are important to hire for mold testing to obtain an accurate scope of work and properly eliminate the problem. Mold testing can vary in cost and typically depends on how many areas of the home are tested and how large the areas which need to be tested are in the building. Prices for mold testing can go from $350 for a 3 sample test to $1,600 for a 3 sample test. Depending on what experience the inspection company holds and how much detail is required for a mold inspection.
Why are these samples important? Sampling is important to determine if there is mold present but also if taken correctly, the report should let the mold remediation company know what exactly needs to be completed. When doing a mold inspection, consider how detailed a report that you would like because a trustworthy remediation company would not test for mold. It would be a conflict of interest. With a valid inspection report, the remediation company would provide a very specific price for your remediation project instead of adding extra items in for the “just in case” scenario.
