KREALTY REAL ESTATE REPORT THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY ON MOLD Mold removal can be tricky and expensive if it requires a specialist. The good news: If the area of infestation is small, you can typically take care of it yourself. A small investment in cleaning supplies is all it will cost. First, clean up the water and eliminate the source of excess moisture. It's important to remove mold witha biocide and disinfectant, rather than with bleach. Be sure to open windows and wear gloves, eye protection and a facemask. Then allow the affected area to dry. The bad news. Remediation cost for larger areas of mold will be greater, but it will ensure further damage is not done. The cost of inspection by a specialist averages $500 to $6,000 - depending on the entire scope of the infestation. Consider some type of protection from mold when purchasing home insurance. Ifa problem should arise, your insurance will help offset at least part of the cost of mold removal. I do have a Decon7 System. You could use this to seal and destroy mold in larger areas. I'd be happy to rent it to you. Google Decon7 for details.
