Why Choose Precision Mold Removal?

Cost of Mold Removal & Mold Remediation in Houston

Sad to say, but the cost of mold treatment in Houston can get expensive, and quick! This is primarily due to the fact that, thanks to our warm & humid climate, mold spreads rapidly here. That means it can quickly get into the structural elements of your home (i.e. behind walls and under sub-floors) faster than you might expect, which can exponentially increase the cost of eradicating the infestation and restoring the structure.

If you can detect the presence of mold early on, then it may be possible to treat it as a simple mold removal case. This means less invasive and less expensive equipment and techniques are required, such as chemical treatments and routine hazardous disposal.

However, if the mold has spread deeper into the structure or is pervasive throughout the dwelling, than a more thorough process called mold remediation may be indicated.

This process may involve:

  • On-site damage assessment (inside the property and out)
  • Demolition & reconstruction of affected areas
  • Water damage restoration
  • Water leakage & standing water repairs
  • And more…

We endeavor to help our customers save on professional mold removal cost by providing: 

  • No obligation initial inspection
  • Clear, up front cost estimates
  • Help in maximizing insurance benefits
  • No obligation consulting from start to finish!

Signs That You Have Mold

Signs and Symptoms of Black Mold

Cost of Mold Inspection in Houston

A thorough inspection and background survey of the premises is always the first step. This is to ensure that all affected areas and potential causes of mold have been identified before the removal or remediation process begins.

There are many reasons that necessitate an in-person evaluation by one of our trained technicians before we just jump into fixing it. The primary reason being, it is important to us that our clients are fully informed of the extent of the problem and solution from the get-go.

Another very important reason is this: what if toxic mold is found on the premises? It’s likely that you will want to know immediately – for the safety of your family – whether or not you should evacuate the site until the threat has been contained and eliminated, right?

For all these reasons and more, a comprehensive inspection is the essential first step.

Some of the modern methods we use are:

  • Initial assessment by a trained professional technician (advanced equipment may or may not be required)
  • Ventilation analysis (air ducts, air filters, etc.)
  • Historical survey (the background of the premises can indicate causal links to the appearance of mold and how to prevent recurrence)
  • On-site testing for other potentially hazardous compounds (i.e. mold isn’t always the culprit; it may be necessary to exclude: Radon, CO2, CO, VOCs, etc. This may require advanced equipmet)

PRO TIP:  All mold, including the toxic forms, like to hang out in moist areas like basements and bathrooms, so make sure to keep these susceptible areas stay as dry & well ventilated as possible to prevent the growth and spread of mold.

Black Mold Removal in Houston

We are prone to black mold here simply because we are prone to mold in general here. There is insufficient information as to why black mold develops in the first place – as opposed to any other variety of mold (just the luck of the draw I guess). While we are still learning about toxic mold, thankfully, we do know what some of the physical manifestations of prolonged exposure to it are…

To find out if you have black mold may require:

  • Chronic unexplained fatigue
  • Chronic headaches
  • Chronic sinus congestion or irritation
  • Constant coughing or sneezing
  • Unusual light sensitivity
  • Poor memory or difficulty finding words
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Unusual joint stiffness and/or pain
  • Unusual skin sensations (such as tingling and numbness)
  • Unresolved skin irritation or rashes
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness, nausea or vomiting

If you are experiencing these symptoms AND see or smell mold on the premises, you should consider evacuating the site and seeking immediate medical attention! Then, call a mold removal company to completely remove the black mold infestation before resuming habitation of that environment.

The cost to remove black mold is not intrinsically higher than the removal of any other variety, and most professional mold removal companies can adequately handle the remediation and hazardous disposal of black mold. The only thing that may affect cost in the case of dangerous, toxic mold treatment is the urgent nature of it, AND the fact that you want to make sure you are working with a trusted professional and not some cut-rate outfit.

With a Precision Mold Removal local contractor, you can always count on:

  • 24/7 emergency response
  • No price gouging
  • No hidden fees
  • Satisfaction guaranteed!

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
