ServiceMaster Restoration by Fowler
Recent Review: Charlie Fowler and his team at ServiceMaster Restoration were wonderful. If your calling for restoration, water damage or mold your definitely not happy ! But ServiceMaster Restoration helps take away the pain and gives you the best experience under bad circumstances. They responded quickly to my distress call and were able to get me an estimate as well as help me prepare what I needed to present to my insurance. They fit me into the schedule and started working on my water damage problem immediately! They are knowledgeable and explained every detail of what they were going to do and how they were going to help me. They arrived when they said they would, worked efficiently and professionally, finished when they said they would and left very little footprint. No surprises! I would highly recommend using them for water and mold elimination issues as well as for your reconstruction needs afterwards.

Servpro of Fair Oaks-Centreville-Chantilly
Recent Review: We had a water damage/mold issue on one of the wall of our house. Servpro was highly recommended, so I gave them a call. They were very good over the phone and sent a person the very same day. From this point on they were very disappointing. Nick came over and looked very unsure about the job. The mold was in the inside of the building and the outside is masonry so he was not sure about the best way the perform the clean up. He said he would talk to the guys who actually do the job to figure out how they would get it done. The next day or so we got a $1500 estimate, never a call or any explanation on their action plan. We also learned that their quote does not include any rebuilding. They would only do the cleaning and mold treatment. There was never a moisture test or anything. Nick just came, measured the wall, did not know how the job would be done and left. Other companies came and actually had a plan and left us with an estimate without charging us $150 just for their visit.

Geller Environmental Labs Inc
Award 2017Super Service Award
Recent Review: I had an excellent experience with Geller from the first phone call through the visit and sampling. Jack Geller and his team at the office were professional, courteous and informative. When we received the keys to our new home early, I was able to reschedule a visit to the same day that I called, without any concerns or frustration with my new schedule. Jack was in contact to help walk me through the testing process and updated me to confirm timing for the appointment and congratulate me on our new home.  Pat showed up right on time and demonstrated a great deal of historical knowledge about homes in my area, and how they were constructed and what our risk factors for asbestos might be. He examined several areas of surface mold and provided advice on different techniques a remediation company may use to abate the mold. He inspected our exterior siding on each side of our home. He took care when handling and sampling flooring and ceiling materials in our basement and was able to take samples of several layers of tiling in our kitchen. He was careful with our home and very helpful in answering all of my questions about the testing process. I chose this company from it's excellent Angie's List reviews, and I'm very glad I did. I would recommend them to anyone needing environmental testing.

Recent Review: Jay was the mold inspector that came to our home. He was extremely knowledgeable about mold and did a visual inspection of the rooms on the north side of the house with the musty odor. He used a moisture meter on the wallboard, as well as looking in the attic for signs of water leakage. He also took three air test samples and sent them to a lab. The tests came back showing we have two molds that are allergens in high concentration in one of the two upstairs bedrooms. Based on the inspection and mold air test, he suggested that we start conservatively by having our 30 year old air ducts cleaned and disinfected, since mold can grow in airducts, especially when a whole house humidifier is used in the winter, which we use. MoldGone does not clean airducts, so we are using another company for airduct cleaning. He also recommended that we use a dehumidifier upstairs for two weeks. If the smell does not dissipate, then MoldGone will give us an estimate for remediation.

RTS Environmental Services
Recent Review: I just bought a house built in 1943 and during the process of ripping out the drop ceiling suddenly thought, "Oh crap, is there asbestos in these ceiling tiles?" I emailed RTS on Sunday and they called me on Monday to set up an asbestos inspection. Paul came out on Thursday and inspected my house. He was very thorough in his explanation of the probabilities of asbestos contamination and its safe removal. He explained all of the areas of the house that could contain asbestos and explained their proper removal. As this is my first house I was really nervous to find out that their might be asbestos in it but Paul really put me at ease. Before he left he gave me a list of things that I could do to mitigate the risk of having potentially asbestos containing materials in my home. Totally worth the cost of the inspection.

Recent Review: I called Superior to come out and do a re-inspection for termites as terms for a recent home purchase and settlement. The Professional Inspector came, reinspected, no termite problem. However, I did have a mold problem on the basement, utility room wood ceiling, quite at bit. The wood was treated for "wood rot." Quite a catch by Superior since my home inspector failed to note this. Overtime and it was bad the floor above would cave in.

Moldgone was excellent. Not only did they respond promptly over the phone, they also responded to an after-hours phone call the day before when I had to change the POC for their visit. During the visit, they were thorough and explained what they were seeing and provided sensible recommendations for our situation. I would recommend Moldgone.

Jon arrived on time and was very friendly and professional throughout his inspection. He gave honest feedback that there was no mold infestation, even though it meant less business for him. I greatly appreciated his integrity and thorough work. If we ever do have a mold problem I will absolutely go to MoldGone!

I emailed Jon on a Sunday and he came out on Monday. He walked me through his assessment and really educated me on the situation. He didn't do the testing as it wasn't necessary (how amazing). He told me the next steps and didn't charge me for his visit. Super honest and ethical. It was extremely refreshing. I will use them to clean up the wall area affected by the water to be safe. I could not be more pleased and would whole heartedly recommend them to anyone.

I would strongly recommend Moldgone for anyone who is looking for a mold remediation service. The initial visit by John included an inspection of the area followed by an estimate for the project. I was relieved that the impacted area was relatively small. We were able to complete all the paperwork and schedule the completion of the project via email. The guys who worked the project were friendly, on time and completed the project in less time than the initial estimate. Billing and the payment process was easy and, when I spotted an error, it was addressed quickly. Overall, it was a very positive experience.

Arrived on time. Conducted a thorough inspection with great attention to detail. Provided helpful explanations and recommendations, answered questions fully, and provided a detailed report with a cost estimate. What more could anyone possibly want? This was a top-shelf, A+ inspection. Would call again without hesitation.

Once mold takes a hold of a home, it can be hard to find all of it.

It can be even harder to get it all out. Before you start the process of removing mold from a house, you'll need to know where it is.

If you're not sure how to hire for mold testing, follow these basic tips:

1. Value Thoroughness over Thriftiness

While it might be tempting to work with the cheapest mold inspectors around, it could be better to hire a company that gives you a pricier estimate. If you want to make sure that your inspector doesn't miss any mold in your home, only a thorough job will do, and the most conscientious mold inspectors simply cost more to hire.

2. Be Aware of Hidden Costs

Some mold testing companies might offer free initial inspections, but these services are often bundled with costly add-ons. Also, if a company offers both mold inspections and mold remediation services, they might have more incentive to exaggerate your situation, which means you might want to have these services done separately.

3. Quiz Them on Their Mold Know-How

The EPA has laid down strict guidelines for mold testing and removal, and the right mold inspectors will be well-versed on all of these government standards and regulations. If mold inspection licensing is required in your state, the right company will have their paperwork in order, and they'll also be more than happy to provide free estimates and referrals. Also review these types of molds found in and around the home.

Aspergillus, Cladosporium, Fusarium, Penicilium and Stachybotrys are Toxic Molds

Aspergillus, Cladosporium and Stachybotrys are Common Household Molds

Ask a Mold Inspector about these Types of Household Molds:

  • Alternaria: this black/white mold typically develops in the kitchen, bathroom or other areas with moisture and a lack of sunlight.
  • Aspergillus: typically airborne it doesn't cause major issues, but when it gathers in areas of the house it forms toxic colonies.
  • Aureobasidium: this pink/black mold gathers on surfaces such as wood, caulk, paint and wallpaper. It's very common.
  • Chaetomium: this dark mold builds in sheetrock or drywall that has been exposed to water.
  • Cladosporium: found in household fabrics such as upholstery and older carpets as well areas where wood boards meet, such as cabinets or flooring.
  • Fusarium: also found in household fabrics such as upholstery and older carpets.
  • Penicillium: this fast-moving mold grows in insulation that has been exposed to water or flooding.
  • Stachybotrys Chartarum: this is also called Black Mold or Toxic Mold and develops around wet pipes, air ducts and tubes.
  • Serpula Lacrymans: rarely found indoors, this yellow mold loves wood. But it can sometimes appear on wooden surfaces in the home.
  • Trichoderma: this mold can be found across most absorbent household surfaces (wallpaper, carpets, particle board) exposed to repeated water.
  • Ulocladium: more common outdoors, this mold typically develops indoors after a flood
