Factors Affecting Mold Remediation Costs

Before the professionals arrive on site, it is best for the homeowner to know the factors that can affect mold removal costs, so that the necessary actions may be taken to lessen them.

Factor No. 1: Size of the Affected Area

The larger the size of the mold-infested area, the higher the cost of remediation. Typically, mold affecting more than 10 square feet will require professional cleanup and removal.

Factor No. 2: Location of Mold

Mold growths are enlivened by high humidity and the presence of moisture. The more difficult an area with mold is to reach or the more expensive the finishes of an area affected by mold are, the more expensive they will be to repair.

Factor No. 3: Cause of Mold

The reason behind the mold can also be a cost factor. For example, if the cause of mold is a flood due to a contaminated septic tank failure, the testing, cleaning, and treatment will naturally be more costly.

Factor No. 4: Scope of the Damage

The extent of mold damage affects costs. If mold can be eradicated using an application or specialty cleaning method, costs will be lower. However, drywall, insulation and studs to floorboards, carpets and furniture damaged beyond repair must be completely removed and replaced.

Factor No. 5: Mold Remediation Method

Various mold removal procedures are utilized during mold remediation. Eachmold job is unique, requiring distinctive combinations of the methods listed below.
