Mold remediation costs will vary from project to project. Each case is unique and requires a customized plan for successful mold remediation. Having said that, the general range is between $2,000 to $7,000, and is determined by the scope of the infestation, the extent of labor and the cost of materials used in restoration.
Professional mold remediation offers a great value to clients because they will be able to utilize tools that are too costly for the average homeowner. For example, at Bright Restoration we make use of a High Efficient Particulate Air (HEPA) vacuum to remove mold from both the air and building materials. This industrial grade machine produces unmatched results and is far too expensive for the average homeowner to purchase and operate for a single job.
Mold remediation is considered an emergency service and is often covered by your insurance policy. Even if your insurance provider is resistant to covering the cost of remediation, there are steps you can take to recover any upfront costs to your family. You can contact a public adjuster who will advocate on your behalf with the insurance company.
