What’s the Price Range for Residential Mold Remediation?

Mold is one of the most expensive forms of damage to remediate. Costs start with an inspection and continue through testing, analysis and mold removal. Depending on the extent of the problem, containment measures may be necessary. Find out about the price range of minor, moderate and major mold damage for residences in Poinciana, FL.

Minor Damage

Minor mold damage is likely to have the lowest remediation cost. A minor mold problem can be identified by several criteria:

  • Covers less than 10 square feet
  • Involves a non-toxigenic species
  • Mold is readily visible

The only way to accurately identify mold is to contact a mold specialist and schedule a test. Professional testing may cost several hundred dollars along with $30 to $150 to analyze each sample. The expense of cleaning up a minor infestation may add up to several thousand dollars.

Moderate Damage

Moderate damage may cover 10 or more square feet and involve factors that make cleanup more challenging. This may include the presence of hidden mold or a toxigenic species. Testing and mold removal costs may range up to $10,000.

Major Damage

A major mold problem can cost far more to clean up than moderate damage, depending on how much of a residence is affected. The following factors may describe a severe infestation:

  • Affects a large extent of a residence
  • Causes structural damage
  • May involve substantial amounts of hidden mold
  • May involve black mold or another toxigenic species

Remediating major mold damage can cost tens of thousands of dollars. The costs of black mold removal and other cleanup and containment expenses may be excluded from homeowner’s insurance policies.

A mold specialist or environmental hygienist can identify the extent of a mold problem at a residence in  Poinciana, FL. The price ranges above are only broad estimates. A number of factors may raise or lower the cost of removing mold.
