Customer Review for Mold Testing & Remediation Quote for Purchase of House
We had a general inspection that indicated there was mold in the house we had put an offer on. We decided to pursue more intense mold inspections to determine the amount, type, and get a remediation estimate so we could ask the sellers to remediate the issue. The general inspection indicated there was no moisture in the basement walls.Rick, however, found the walls to be saturated (greater than 25% moisture levels), pointed out mold growing all around the basement, and also indicated some mold upstairs (these were all visual inspections). He also took air samples of the basement, first and second floors. He rushed the samples at no cost to us when USPS goofed and sent them out a day late as we were on an incredibly strict timeline as part of our purchase contract.Rick updated the estimate once we found out the type/levels. All along the way, he answered tons (seriously, I sometimes emailed him 3-5x a day as I thought of questions) of questions I had as I have heard horror stories about people buying mold-infested houses. He made me feel good that with the proper remediation this wouldn't be a bad purchase. I'm so glad we contacted him because the remediation cost is around $6000 and we were able to get the sellers to pay it instead of us realizing this was an issue a few years down the road. If we ever buy again I will definitely use Rick for any mold inspections I may require.
Description of work:
We hired Rick to come do a mold inspection of a house we were purchasing, including taking 3 air samples.
