How Much Does Mold Remediation Cost?

By Edited Nov 20, 2015 1 2

There are many reasons that people need to have mold remediation done. There are a lot of airborne mold agents that can cause allergies and sicknesses if they are not swiftly dealt with. Every once and awhile people notice that their house has a little bit of mold content. Having a small amount of mold will never cause a lot of damage, but when you can literally see a ton of mold growing and spreading inside of your home, this can actually become a danger to your health and the health of the people that live with you. What can you do in order to get rid of the entire mold accumulation in your household? The best way to get rid of a lot of mold is to call up some professional mold remediation companies.

You need to get your mold removed, but do not want to put yourself at risk of getting sick from cleaning it yourself. There is special equipment and precaution that is taken by a mold remediation company when they come and clean out your home. How much does mold remediation cost? The average mold remediation will depend on how much mold content is being harbored in your home. Usually if you have a lot of mold that has been ignored and building up for awhile, you are going to end up paying more for services to get rid of it. If you just have a smaller amount of mold that has started to spread, you are going to be paying less.

What is a dollar estimate of the amount of money that these remediation companies will charge? Usually you will be billed within the range of $300 to $5000 depending on the amount of remediation that is needed. In some of the most extreme cases, you can bet that you are going to be paying several thousand dollars. Most people end up getting charged around $600 for their total remediation bill. The cost of mold remediation is not very cheap, but it is definitely worth having a clean, odor-free house.

Every once and awhile there is a rare case of mold remediation that costs over $10000 because the mold had been ignored or unseen for a very long time. When the mold spreads across walls and furniture, it may really rack up a large bill. You are probably wondering why the cost of mold cleaning is so expensive and why you cannot just wipe it up yourself. The truth is that you can actually wipe it up yourself if you have the specialized mold remediation products and know what you're doing. Most people are recommended to call an expert if their mold spreads over ten feet in distance.

You end up getting charged for the initial inspection of the mold. The reason that the mold needs to be inspected is so that the mold remediation contractor is able to figure out how he or she should successfully remove it. If the mold is a result of water or piping leakages, you will be charged even more money for the cost to fix the damage. Additionally, if the mold has a high level of toxicity, you are going to be charged even more because of the fact that it is poisonous and more risky to remove.

In some cases, mold remediation expenses can be deducted from your taxes. You should check in your state to see what the official laws and tax rules are for this type of expense. Hopefully you now have a good idea how much mold remediation costs and what you can expect from remediation services. It is always good to keep your house clean and prevent any potential damage that may be caused by mold.

Generally, if the mold area is larger than ten feet square, it's best to contact a professional mold removal service.
