What is the cost of Professional Mold Remediation?
A mold remediation project can cost as little as $1,000 – if we catch it on time.
If the situation remains unattended and mold spreads, then costs could skyrocket.
When assessing the project cost, the following points should be considered:
- Labor costs make up a significant part of the total price of mold remediation. Qualified removal companies make use of skilled labor and expensive equipment. A High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) vacuum, for example, is a $10,000 piece of machinery that makes use of special filters and powerful suction to remove mold from materials. Experts operating HEPA vacuums wear mold-proof suits, face masks and require special training in the proper operation of this equipment.
- Material costs vary widely, depending on the location, extensiveness and severity of the mold infestation. In some cases, mold may have eaten away lumber, sheet rock and floor boards. In other cases, it may only be present on the surface of carpets or small areas of the walls and ceilings. Accordingly, material costs vary from less than a hundred dollars on the low-end to tens-of-thousands of dollars for the remediation of a flooded basement, for example.
Bear in mind that a professional restoration company, such as DryCare, will ensure that a mold infestation will not reoccur.
Conversely, unprofessional treatment of the infestation is a near guarantee of recurring mold infestation, hardship and high costs associated with clearing it out over again.
