Mold Remediation - What Should I Ask the Pro?

Mold Remediation - What Should I Ask the Pro?

If you’ve never had to deal with mold remediation, but suddenly you’re facing some kind of funky infestation that you know is going to require some professional attention, then you’ve come to the right place. Even if you’ve had previous experiences with black mold or other toxic spore contaminations in your living or working spaces, maybe you’re still thinking, “When it comes to mold remediation, what should I ask the pro?” Let us help you with a quick checklist of the six key topics you should be discussing with any mold removal company who is quoting you services for a mold inspection, mold testing or any other aspect of the mold remediation process.

  1. How long have you been doing this? Obviously everyone has to start somewhere, but it’s important for your peace of mind to know that the person or people who you’re about to entrust with the health and safety of the places where you live and work aquestions imagere highly qualified.
  2. What kind of equipment do you use? Have your prospective mold remediator walk you through the process of how they plan to conduct their mold inspection and mold testing. Will they be using the most advanced technology to look for hot spots that are hiding behind your walls? Is their mold removal equipment state-of-the-art, HEPA-filtered technology?

  3. How does the mold testing work? In other words, have your mold remediator candidate explain how he or she will determine whether your mold is actually toxic. Not every kind of mildewy or even moldy substance is a threat to your health. So how will you know? Is your remediator going to use the most reliable sources to check the types of mold that are found in your property?
  4. What’s the guarantee? Will the contactor stand behind his or her work, and how long will you be guaranteed to not see mold in the affected areas? What’s the process if you find mold again in the future, and where is all of this in writing? Don’t be bashful about asking for this kind of guarantee. After all, this is your hard-earned money we’re talking about here, not to mention the safety and health of your indoor spaces.
  5. How much does it cost? Of course, you would have asked this question anyway, but we encourage you to have your mold remediation pro go line by line through the estimate for you so that you understand every aspect of supplies, labor and other costs like lab testing and other incidental costs that may apply. You don’t want to get to the end of the process and be surprised by a hidden charge that was hiding in the fine print.
