Customer Review for Mold Testing & Remediation Quote for Purchase of House
I installed a vent in one of the bathrooms during the winter. The weather was too bad to install the roof vent right away and I didn't think it would hurt for it to vent to the attic for a short period of time. Big mistake. I had vented bath vets to attics in other houses I have owned without any problems. But within about 3 weeks widespread mold growth developed on the roof sheeting. The attic is well isolated so I wasn't worried about mold infiltrating into the living space, but I was concerned about it affecting the resale value of the house.
I selected Dutch's Mold Removal from Angie's list based on good reviews and called for an estimate. Rick responded quickly and set up a day for a visit. Rick arrived at the scheduled time and assessed the attic ventilation situation. Rick seemed well-informed about mold causes and removal and gave good answers to all my questions. He pointed out that there were not enough eave vents and that some were clogged with blown-in insulation. He also noted that the roofers had installed roof vents in addition to the power vent and that was a no-no. He gave me what I thought was a reasonable estimate to remove the mold, clear existing eave vents, install extra eave vents, and install a roof vent for the bathroom vent. Since outside work was required for installing eave vents we had to wait for acceptable weather.
When the workers came they performed the work we agreed on. I was amazed at how well the roofing appeared after the mold was removed. It looked like new. See the attached photo. I didn't take a photo of it with the mold, but it was black. I was satisfied with the new eave vents . They finished the job in less than a day and left the house as clean as it was when they arrived.
I was very happy with the job performed and I would recommend them.
Description of work:
Removed mold from roof sheeting, added eave vents, cleaned existing eave vents, installed roof vent for bathroom
