Why Choose Precision Mold Removal?
How Well Does Mold Grow In Elgin?
They don’t call it ‘Hotlanta’ for nothing!
Unfortunately, our hot, moist climate is ideal for mold to grow and thrive. Mold can grow on almost any surface, so it is critical to be proactive about mold prevention and treatment.
Below is a list of some areas where you should be on the lookout for mold growth
Even if you are vigilant, mold can go undetected for quite sometime. It can even be growing under or behind surfaces (like behind wallpaper, or under carpet or floorboards, for example) making it difficult to detect. That is why we recommend routine mold inspections by an experienced professional.
If you are already seeing or smelling mold, then it may have already been developing for a while. Delaying treatment of a mold problem can cause the problem to become much more extensive and expensive, and it can even be a serious health concern – especially if there is black or toxic mold present!
Signs That You Have Mold
Signs and Symptoms of Black Mold
How Do I Know If I Have Black Mold?
It is nearly impossible to identify black mold by sight. This is because there are many species of mold that are black in color, but not of the toxic variety. This is why you need a professional inspection.
Our local technicians have years of experience identifying and removing toxic mold. If you have had recent flooding or water damage, or if you see or smell mold, or if you haven’t had a recent inspection…please call us right away!
Don’t take the risk of potentially living with black mold in your home. Some symptoms of prolonged exposure to toxic mold are:
Breathing or lung related issues
Allergies or unexplained allergic reactions - coughing, sneezing, etc
Irritation of the eyes, nose, throat or skin
Unusual fatigue or headaches that won’t go away
How Much Should I Expect to Pay for Elgin Mold Removal?
We can’t guarantee how other mold removal companies will treat you, but here is how Precision Mold Removal contractors approach the financial arrangements…
We are upfront with all potential fees.
We fully inform our potential clients of what is required for that particular job (along with all associated costs), and we do our best to make sure that all of your questions are satisfactorily answered before any contract work begins.
We will always try to bill insurance first. This may not always be possible, but we will do the best we can to help you understand and maximize your policy.
We will not nickel and dime you, price gouge, or hit you with hidden fees.
We want you to feel like you are in control of the entire process – from inspection to removal – so, we promise to make ourselves available to you for phone consultations, and to act as your advocate throughout the whole process.
A typical job starts with comprehensive professional inspection, which is a thorough visual inspection of the entire premises. Then, once all the mold and mold damaged areas have been properly identified and evaluated, your technician will provide you with a detailed and clear assessment. This will include our recommendations for any services required, such as…
One more thing…while there is a reasonable fee for our inspection, you can count on our local technician to be prompt, courteous, professional and NOT pressure you into a contract.
We think it’s important for any potential clients to understand that there are several variables that can affect the overall cost of your particular case. The primary variable is whether simple mold removal is indicated, or if remediation and/or restoration will also be involved.
Removal is the most cost effective treatment option, but is only effective if the mold outbreak is caught early and treated right away. If not, the mold will likely spread into other areas or deeper into your home, which may require repairs to be made to your structure. At the same time, it is possible that there are existing conditions in and around your home that created the problem and will likely cause the mold to return. That is where remediation comes into play.
Remediation involves both the removal and restoration of affected areas. However, it also involves the identification and correction of problem areas inside or outside your home that can contribute to recurring mold outbreaks. It requires more time and it often involves the use of special equipment (such as negative air machines, etc) to properly accomplish the objective.
The cost of your service will vary depending on these factors as well as the overall size of the job. So, it is impossible to provide precise cost figures without first completing an in-person inspection.
Call us for a no obligation phone consultation. We are happy to discuss your needs and help you determine what, if any, of our services would be of benefit.

Frequently Asked Question
Can You Clean Up Mold Yourself?
The location of the mold plays a major role in how to clean it up. For example, you will need to use different tools depending on the location of the mold. Though you can clean mold by yourself, it is a dangerous undertaking and not something we recommend. When you scrub mold, it releases mold particles into the air, which you may breathe in. To prevent this, it is always better to opt for a professional cleanup team to help you with mold contamination. A professional cleanup team will make sure your home is safe from mold spores while they clean up.
What Is the Best Product to Kill Mold?
You can purchase products specifically designed for killing mold or you can use products that you have already lying around your house. However, it’s best to get the mold inspected first to see the extent of the damage and to make sure the mold you have isn’t black mold. Generally, pre-made products will cost you a little more, but the price tag may be worth the investment depending on how serious your mold contamination is. However, serious mold contaminations require extra attention. In many circumstances, mold will come back if not handled properly. This is why we recommend leaving mold cleanup to the experts. We can make sure your mold problems don’t keep reoccurring after cleaning up.
Could I Use Bleach or Vinegar to Kill Mold?
When it comes to mold, not all contaminations are the same. Some contaminations infect far past the surface you can see mold while others are simple surface contaminations. To decide whether bleach or mold is the best product for getting rid of mold contamination, you need to take note of the surface the contamination is on. For contaminations on porous areas like wood, vinegar is best to kill mold while the bleach is better for harder surfaces. Though you can use these products to kill mold, there is no way to know if you have killed the source of the mold. A professional mold remediation team can help you clean mold and make sure it never comes back by locating the cause of mold growth.
Do I Need a Mold Inspection?
Chances are if you haven’t ever had a mold inspection, you need one. Many people think their houses are free from mold, but this often is not the case. If you live in an older house, there is a good chance that there is mold growing somewhere unseen in the crawlspace or even the sheathing of your home. However, even modern houses aren’t safe from mold contamination. Many builders try their best to make sure mold doesn’t grow in their buildings, but it is impossible for houses to stay mold-free without taking very thorough measures. A mold remediation team can locate mold inside your home, even if it is not visible.
