What to Look for When Hiring for Mold Repair

What to Look for When Hiring for Mold Repair

There are a lot of people that say not to avoid home repairs that deal with serious issues. Things like a leaky roof or issues with plumbing can really cause further costs and harm down the road. Mold, on the other hand, isn’t something you can wait even a day to take care of.

Do They Want to Charge You for Pre-Testing?

Look and see the area you want to be worked on for mold. If there are visible spots that show mold to the naked eye, then do not allow them to test the area for mold. They might want to check out the whole area, but as they repair the damaged space, they can simultaneously check for other damage. Pre-testing is only necessary when you suspect mold. If you see it, it’s not required.

Size Matters to the Cost of Mold Repair

Plenty of shady mold repair contractors will try to charge you an arm and a leg because they know you want the mold gone. If there is only a small section of mold in the house, they shouldn’t be charging you some insane amount. The size of the job should mirror the cost, so if it’s a small, secluded section that needs work, don’t let someone charge you $1000 dollars. Good contractors will be honest about this.

What About Buying a New Home?

If you’re buying a new home, mold repair is definitely not something you want to worry about. This is when pre-testing is actually needed. Before buying a home, pre-testing for mold is helpful because this way, if there is any problem, the current homeowner can pay for it. It’s not your job to take on any issues that the homeowner knew about.

Should I Try to Repair the Mold Myself?

Without experience fixing or removing mold, it’s not recommended you try it on your own the first time it pops up. Mold can be tricky to manage, and especially if it’s over a long stretch of space, you might be dealing with something larger than you can even see at the moment.

Hopefully, this helps should you ever run into a mold issue!
