What Costs Are Associated With Mold Remediation?
There are several costs associated with the price of a complete mold remediation. Not only do you have to pay for the mold remediation service itself, but there are inspections that need to be done, as well as rebuilding after the removal of the mold.
Before you even call a mold remediation service, you have to call in a mold specialist. This person will determine the extent of the damage in the area of the mold infestation, and will also check other surrounding areas for possible unseen mold, and high airborne spore counts.
After the assessment has been made, a mold remediation team will be able to estimate the cost of the actual elimination of the mold. This cost will vary depending on the severity of the infestation, including how deep the mold has penetrated into certain building materials, where the mold is located, how widespread it is, and what methods are used to remove the mold.
The final cost associated with mold remediation is the rebuilding of the areas that have been affected by the mold and therefore torn down, and removed. Often walls have to be torn down, insulation removed, carpet pulled up, and sometimes even sections of the wood framing need to be removed. All of this will need to be rebuilt after the mold has been removed, and that isn’t generally a job that a remediation service will do. Their job is to eliminate the mold. You’ll have to call in a contractor to rebuild the portions of your house that have been torn down, or do it yourself.
Determining your final mold remediation cost will depend upon your selection of companies for these various services combined with how extensive the damage done by the mold is. If you catch the mold quickly, you will be able to keep costs to a minimum. If you ignore the problem, or simply never see it until it’s too late, it can cost you tens of thousands of dollars to fully remediate your home.
