There are hundreds of types, of mold. There are good molds and bad molds. Penicillin is an example of "good" mold. It is an antibiotic produced from the genus Penicillum. It is used in medicine. Yest is another example of "good" molds. It is from the genus Saccharomyces and is used in the making of breads. Mushrooms are in the Fungi category and are used as edible foods. There are also examples of "bad" molds. Alternaria is a "bad" mold that can cause allergy symptoms and infections. It grows on wet building materials. Aureobasidium is usually pink or black and is the type you find in bathrooms, or on the caulking around your bathtub. This is also considered a "bad" mold. Botrytis is a type of mold that causes allergies and asthma. It is found on plants and is very common in greenhouses.

So you have a black mold and need a mold remediation of your Fredericksburg, Va home, business, or car. This can be scary, both for health and financial reasons. How much does a black mold remediation cost? We get this question quite often. The answer is always difficult, because of the many variables, in mold remediation or, black mold removal. Most reputable black mold remediation companies, in Fredericksburg, Va, have a minimum charge for mold remediation. Typically, in the area of $500 - $1,000. Mold remediation contractors are highly trained and the equipment, filters, insurance, licenses,and certifications are costly. So, a minimum charge for reputable mold remediation companies would cover things such as, mold remediation of small and mid-sized vehicle, or, a small black mold contamination under a bathroom sink. Again, there are many variables in mold remediation. So this is just a guideline not a "set in stone" guarantee.
Virginia Restoration Experts has been in business doing mold remediation, in the Fredericksburg, Va area, for over a decade. We have done mold remediation jobs that range, from $500 - $40,000 and that's just for the mold remediation and doesn't include any reconstruction costs. The $40,000 price is not common, and we strongly suggest getting a 2nd opinion, on any mold remediation job over $1,000.
The typical mold remediation cost for a residential home that has one affected area, is usually between $1,500 - $ 3,500
for the mold remediation only. However, crawlspaces and attics are usually higher than that. We get calls from people that are either buying, or selling their home. The home inspector usually finds the mold, in the crawlspace, snaps a picture, and tells them to call a certified mold remediation company, such as, Virginia Restoration Experts. Normally if mold has been found in the crawlspace. It has usually been going on for a long time. The mold contamination is normally on the floor joists and the paper (back side), of the insulation, throughout, the entire crawlspace. It can also be on the foundation walls. A mold remediation job such as this, will require, removal of the insulation and vapor barrier (if there is one.) HEPA vacuuming and HEPA sanding, the crawlspace, cleaning and wiping down, of the floor joists, pipes, duct lines, (etc). It will also include an antimicrobial treatment and sealing the floor joist system, with a fungicidal coating, removing debris and correctly installing a new vapor barrier, then re-insulating the crawlspace. This process is extremely labor intensive and takes several days to complete. Thus, the price will reflect that. A "turn key" crawlspace mold remediation,of the entire crawlspace, by a qualified mold remediation company, in Fredericksburg, Va, will cost anywhere between $4,500 - $12,000 depending on the square footage of the job. Attics can be even higher than that, because a tall attic will have much more square footage and its extremely difficult moving safely in one.
Reputable mold remediation companies will also charge a fee for providing an mold inspection. Usually, if you decide too move forward with the mold remediation. It will be refunded to you. . A certified mold remediation professional will need to make a site visit, gather measurements, record moisture, temperature, and humidity readings, take photos, and write a detailed mold remediation protocol for your situation and supply a quote. This takes 2- 4 hours normally. So you can see why there is a small fee attached to the mold inspection. Again, the fee is normally returned as long, as you use their mold remediation services. There is usually no charge for a mold inspection, of a vehicle.
Be extremely skeptical of low quotes. The Fredericksburg, Va area has no shortage of contractors, that think they can do mold remediation without proper training and equipment. We have had to do a "2nd mold remediation" behind amateurs many times. We have a saying. "If you think mold remediation is expensive...wait until you have to do it a second time."
