You Never Expected Mold to Be so Costly

9/9/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation You Never Expected Mold to Be so Costly Once the mold has been located and identified, mold removal can begin.

The first evidence of mold is usually visual. Tiny spots appear on a wall and you try to clean them like dirt. Eventually, they spread, and you are forced to admit that you have a mold problem. You don’t want to spend a lot of money on mold removal, so you start considering other options.


• If you find a way to clear up this bit of mold, is the problem solved?
• Should you get some mold test kits and do your own inspection?
• Is there anyone out there who will diagnose your problem inexpensively?


The Cost of Mold Inspection Does Not Improve With Time


Bringing in a certified mold inspector is your best option. Expect a basic home inspection to cost up to $600 or more depending on the magnitude of your mold problem. Procrastination can only make the inspection and subsequent mold removal more expensive.


Another expense to consider is the cost to repair damage caused by the inspection. To find hidden mold, the inspector may need to open walls, woodwork and ceilings.


The Cost of Removing Mold Can Be Astronomical
Imagine a home in Puyallup, WA. that has so much mold that black mold removal isn’t financially viable. The only other available course of action would be to destroy the mold by incinerating the building. Most mold problems are not this extreme, but it is common for homes with serious mold problems to cost tens of thousands of dollars for removal and subsequent repair. These costs would not be necessary if the mold problems were recognized and addressed in a timely manner. Perhaps spending a few hundred dollars for a prompt mold inspection isn’t such a bad idea.


The Time Has Come to Remove the Mold


Once the mold has been located and identified, mold removal can begin. Mold infestation is a common problem, so you can expect to find mold specialists nearby. They will finish the job that the inspector started, and your home will return to a mold-free living space. For more information, visit http://www.SERVPROpuyallupsumner.com/.
