We save you time, money, and destroy the possibility of mold coming back.
What Exactly Is Mold?
Mold is a type of fungus that thrives in moist environments and reproduces by releasing spores into the air. These spores are invisible to the naked eye and, when they land on damp surfaces, can start to grow mold colonies. Water-damaged homes often have increased humidity levels, creating the perfect conditions for mold growth.
There are several types of mold that commonly occur after water damage, including Aspergillus, a genus of molds known for its long flask-shaped spores; Penicillium, a blue or green mold often found on materials damaged by water; and Stachybotrys Chartarum, also known as 'toxic black mold', which can release mycotoxins harmful to humans and pets. Each type of mold presents unique risks and requires specific remediation strategies.

When Is Mold Remediation Required?
Mold remediation is typically required when you have a significant mold problem that cannot be effectively managed through simple cleaning and maintenance measures.
Here are some situations in which mold remediation may be necessary:
Extensive Mold Growth: When you have a large area (usually more than 10 square feet) of visible mold growth, professional mold remediation is often needed. This could be on walls, ceilings, or floors.
Hidden Mold: If mold is growing inside walls, in ducts, or in other hidden areas where it's difficult to access and remove, professional remediation may be necessary.
Health Concerns: If you or your family members are experiencing health issues such as severe allergies, asthma attacks, or respiratory problems that can be linked to mold exposure, it's important to address the mold problem thoroughly through remediation.
Structural Damage: Mold can damage building materials such as drywall, insulation, and wood. If mold has caused structural damage, it's crucial to remove the affected materials and remediate the area properly.
Recurring Mold: If mold keeps coming back despite your efforts to clean it, it may be an indicator of a more significant underlying issue that needs professional assessment and remediation.
Real Estate Transactions: In some cases, mold remediation may be required as part of a real estate transaction. Buyers, sellers, or inspectors may identify mold problems that need to be addressed before a property can be sold or purchased.
Legal Requirements: Local or state regulations may require mold remediation under certain circumstances, especially if mold poses a public health risk.
High-Risk Individuals: If there are high-risk individuals in the household, such as infants, elderly individuals, or individuals with compromised immune systems, it's crucial to take mold issues seriously and consider professional remediation.
Uncertainty: If you're unsure about the extent of the mold problem, it's advisable to consult with a professional mold inspector or remediation specialist. They can assess the situation and determine whether remediation is necessary.
Remember that mold can be harmful to health, and DIY attempts to remediate large or hidden mold problems can often make the situation worse by spreading mold spores.
If you suspect a significant mold issue or have health concerns related to mold exposure, it's best to consult with a qualified mold remediation professional who can assess the situation and recommend appropriate measures.

What is the average cost for mold removal services in Dallas, TX?
The average price for mold removal services in Dallas, TX is $2,100. However, because each mold issue is different, there isn’t really a standard price for mold removal.
The cost of mold removal services alone will depend on a variety of factors, such as the amount of mold, where it’s located, and if repairs to the property are needed.
- For small mold removal jobs, you can expect to pay around $500-$1,500.
- For bigger jobs, the price can range around $3,000-$6,000 and upwards.
- If you want to hire a third-party mold inspection or testing company, this can range anywhere from $200-$2,000.
- You’ll also might need to address any underlying plumbing issues, so factor in another $100-$500.
To help you better understand the costs of mold removal services, here is a breakdown of how remediation companies determine their invoices:
Cost Factor #1: The Size and Severity of the Mold Infestation
The more mold that’s in your home, the more it’s going to cost to remove it.
Mold damage restoration companies typically charge around $15 to $30 per square foot of mold.
For example: Mold that’s contained in a small area, like a crawl space or bathroom, will be cheaper to remove. If it is a large infestation that spread to multiple rooms, it will be more expensive.
Cost Factor #2: The Location of the Mold
Where the location of the mold is another major cost factor. If the mold is in an area that is easy to access, like an attic, the quote will be lower. If the mold is in an area that is difficult to access, like a crawlspace, the quote will be higher due to the increased amount of labor and hazards.
Some other locations that can greatly affect the price include:
- HVAC Systems: If the mold is located within the AC system this will dramatically increase the costs. HVAC systems require specialized cleaning equipment in order to ensure spores don’t continue to travel through the house.
- Inside walls: Sometimes a small mold patch can be easily cleaned from a wall. However, if the inspector determines that the mold is located inside a drywall cavity, it will cost more to remove and replace the drywall, sheetrock, or insulation.
Cost Factor #3: The Number of Repairs Required
This cost factor is obvious: the higher amount of structural damage to your home, the higher the cost. For instance, it’s cheaper to replace a small amount of drywall or carpeting versus major water damage repairs to an entire room or home.
Will Insurance Cover Mold Remediation?
Then yes, insurance companies will most likely cover the costs for mold remediation along with water restoration services.
If the mold was caused by a lack of proper maintenance, like failing to address a leaky pipe, then they will probably deny your claim.
Is It Safe To Clean Up Mold By Myself?
It depends on the size of the mold growth. The EPA states that most people can clean up a small patch that is less than three square feet in total. However, if the mold growth is larger than that, if there’s water damage present, and/or if you have respiratory problems, your safest bet is to hire a professional. This is an especially bad idea for people with health concerns. Long-term mold exposure can lead to allergic reactions, asthma, or other breathing problems. Mold spores travel easily, can greatly impact indoor air quality, and are difficult to contain without the right equipment.
Certified mold remediation experts will not only have the training to safely get rid of mold from the property but will also come armed with the proper protective equipment like hazmat suits and respirators.
What Are the Basic Mold Cleanup Steps?
The basic steps for mold cleanup include the following:
- Identifying and fixing water sources that may contribute to mold growth.
- Removing any contaminated materials, such as furniture, carpets, and drywall, that cannot be cleaned or salvaged.
- Clean all surfaces with a detergent solution to remove mold spores.
- Using an EPA-registered fungicide/moldicide to kill any remaining mold spores and prevent future growth.
- Seal all materials with a sealant or waterproof paint to prevent future mold growth.
How Do You Get Rid Of Mold Spores In The Air?
To get rid of mold spores in the air:
- Find and eliminate the source of mold.
- Improve ventilation and reduce humidity levels using exhaust fans and dehumidifiers.
- Use air purifiers with HEPA filters to remove mold spores.
- Clean visible mold with detergent or vinegar/hydrogen peroxide solutions.
- Prevent mold re-growth with mold-resistant paint and regular cleaning.
- Reduce clutter and dust regularly.
- Seal leaks in your home.
