After returning from a short 2-3 hour shopping trip/lunch, my family and I came home to find that one of our guest bathrooms had a plumbing leak that had spread across two rooms. The leak was discovered by my son after he walked in to his room and stepped onto a soaking wet floor! His room is next to a bathroom, so I was pretty certain that the leak was coming from there but there were no obvious signs of leakage or running water. Based on a frenzied call to my neighbor, I was referred to

This was, hands down, the worst experience we encountered during the purchase and closing process of our new home. During the initial home inspection, an area of concern in our basement was called out by the inspector as possible mold. I contacted 3 different companies to discuss & schedule an official mold inspection prior to the end of attorney review.
Decorah Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
was, by far, the most expensive of the three choices, however we decided to go ahead with their services based on the fact that they were strictly an inspection company and felt they would not be biased by the incentive of gaining additional income from remediation costs.
The initial conversations with the office were informative and went smoothly. When we made the decision to go ahead with the inspection, the process was
Decorah Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
and it was scheduled with ease.
The day of the inspection, our realtor met the inspector at the home to let him in. He was a few minutes late due to unforeseen traffic on the highway, although he was very diligent about reaching out to me with the updates on the situation. From my perspective of the 5-10 minutes, it was minimal and had made no initial effect on my opinion. But unfortunately, that is where my positive experience ends.
While the inspector had called to let me know he was experiencing traffic delays, I had been relaying this information to our realtor who was waiting for his arrival at the home. After our last phone conversation, the inspector indicated that he still was unsure of his arrival time so I followed up with him approximately 15-20 minutes later for an update to relay to the realtor. To my surprise, within this time frame, the inspector had made it to the home, completed the inspection and was already en route to his next destination. I was shocked as to the minimal amount of time it took and further baffled by the price. When I expressed my shock that the inspection was already completed, the inspector very confidently continued to tell me that the area called out by the home inspector was NOT MOLD and that it was just "dirt mixed into the concrete." He continued to reassure me that he "knew what mold looked like and that wasn't it", we did not have mold, and had nothing to worry about with our home. He indicated that he had taken samples anyways, and would send me the report when it was completed. He had also spoken to our realtor about all of the above during the inspection.
At the moment, this was a huge weight off our shoulders. In hindsight, we should've never proceeded without the official report, although based on the time constraints of inspections during this process, we made the huge mistake of communicating the "go ahead" through attorneys that we did not have mold.
However, to our surprise, when we received the official mold report the following week, we DID have mold! And to top it off, there were indications of multiple kinds ranging in levels of concern on both levels of the home. I immediately contacted the inspector directly to question the variances between the report and our conversation the prior week. He retracted his previous statements about the "dirt mixed in with the concrete" and again tried to reassure me that it was of minimal concern. He made additional comments that contradicted the state & cleanliness of the home vs. the report. During our approximately 20 minute conversation, I told him about my concerns with the costs of remediation since we had mistakenly trusted his word in communications surrounding our attorney review process. He proceeded to reassure me that while it was not something to ignore and we SHOULD DEFINATELY have it remediated, the cost should be minimal and it was nothing to be concerned about.
At this point, I should've made my first phone call back to the office and file a complaint. But, I didn't. Based on my last conversation with the inspector, he had ball park estimated that the cost of remediation for the problem would be approximately $1,000-$1,500. Since we realized that we should not have taken his "word" in the first place and felt that cost was affordable to correct the problem, it was not worth complaining and creating a ruckus. The inspector was actually very nice & while I am sure that he meant us no harm or deception, the entire situation would've resulted in a different outcome had he practiced a more professional approach and stuck to the FACTS & NOT provided us with his OPINION.
After our closing, we reached out to 3 different mold remediation companies for estimates. During all 3 walk through’s, those inspectors immediately found areas of concern not pointed out in the original report. We had a large area of black mold in visible sight and other smaller areas in another room of the basement not mentioned at all in the
Decorah Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
inspection report. Approximately $5,000 dollars later and after over half of our basement walls were removed to clean up the mold issues, we are mold free. We paid close to twice as much as other inspectors quoted for services I am not sure were completed. We definitely accept some of the blame of incurring the cost of remediation, however, based on the amount of other areas that came to light during remediation, I find it hard to believe that a full walk through ever happened. This was a huge expense, from the get go, that did not have to be ours and would've been handled differently had a thorough inspection been completed in the first place.
I would not use this company again - or recommend them to anyone. My trust is gone in the quality and accuracy of their work.

The team showed up on time for the job. They set up a negative air system and we had no dust or fumes in the house and they were incredibly professional. The job was quoted at 3 days and was complete in 2.5. They were a little pricier than some other companies but they were professional and I felt good about the work being done and done with quality.

They were the 4th provider I had contacted for an estimate. I had contacted them by phone. Explained condition and asked for estimate. They were able to come to the house within 2 days. I had an email estimate the following day with an attached proposal and an itemized list of work to be performed during the remediation process. The process was estimated to take 3 days. Of the 3 other providers, 1 cost was lower, 1 roughly the same, and 1 higher. Although they all were professional and customer focused, I decided to go with this company for the guarantee, testing, and comfort in our discussions.
Arrangements were made to start work within 2 weeks and we agreed upon a date.
There were 3-4 workers each day. Remediation was completed in 2 days. Further details on why to follow.
A fair amount of their materials and tools were left in my driveway and covered overnight. This was about a 6-foot square area.
This helped in daily preparations. My attic is entered through a drop-stairway on the 2nd floor. They also had their own ladder.
Needing to use power equipment and not having an outlet in the attic, they dropped an extension into one of the bedrooms.
We did not have to be out of the house during while they were working. They provided temporary barriers in the upstairs hallway sealing the rest of the house from exposure to any chemicals, mold, and dust. They also covered the walk area to the attic to keep the carpeting protected. These barriers and coverings were removed at the end of each day. Upon job completion, 4 surface tests were performed. The results will be emailed to me. They will be coming back in 6 months to do a follow inspection. They have a 2 year warrantee on all products and labor. The first thing they actually did was to check the roof soffits for ventilation because the attic insulation appeared to extended to the edges covering the soffit vents. They pulled back insulation to allow better air flow.
My attic did not have full flooring and was pretty loaded with stuff on old particle board that was no longer providing adequate support. With the agreed upon start date I was able to clean out most of the attic and replace the flooring lengthwise (approx 16ft wide) in the attic. This gave them pretty much full mobility within the attic and they were able to complete in 2 days.. They had tarps to cover belongings if necessary.
As a result, they reduced the cost by approx $800.

After a heavy downpour the Chicago city sewer system backed-up pumping 2" of sewer water into our basement. We were away so the water sat for a while and mold had started to form in some areas.

responded immediately to our weekend call. They removed the water and silt and ran multiple drying fans and dehumidifiers in the basement for a week+ to return the humidity to normal and combat mold formation. They returned after dehumidification the basement to wash and sanitize. They did a great job of cleaning inside and around the problem areas like the furnace, washer, dryer, stairs, etc... Price was not 'cheap' but there was a lot of equipment and man-hours involved so it was well worth it to both get the job done, and to
