Leaky basement has caused water damage. Need to fix it and do mold removal.

Nadine M

I'm in the process of converting a basement storage room into a workshop. There is a noticeable black speckling on the walls. Not sure if it's mold or something else. Would like to have a professional's opinion and if it is mold, would love to get a quote on removal. Thanks for your help.

1.40 What is mold remediation?

Q.

A. Mold remediation is the removal of mold patterns, particularly inside houses. It's meant to control the spread of mold, if not completely eliminating it. If done correctly, elimination should be at the maximum. The process consists of removing any debri or substance that's been engulfed with mold. The process would then continue onto washing and scrubbing. The use of pressure washers are common in this step. Following the basic cleanup, a bleach solution would be applied to the affected areas. Products like Shockwave or Simple Green are often used.

1.20 Will insurance cover mold removal?

Q. We had some water damage about 4 weeks ago. Our insurance company had an adjustor come in and estimate the cost of repairs. We got the check from them and are in the process of re doing it. Today the dry wall company found mold in all of the rooms and this was not taken into account when we got the estimate. Should insurance cover the cost of mold removal?

A. It's highly unlikely. The very few insurance companies that have policies that DO cover mold remediation, limit coverage to $1,000 or $5,000. Then, they require you to have it done, or they cancel you. Mold remediation can easily cost $30,000, or even more. Worse, because mold is NORMAL, and part of the world, any time your moisture levels go up, the mold comes back. MOST mold is not that 'toxic mold' that worries everyone so much, so if you haven't had the mold tested, you should pay to do that first. This company could just be trying to drum up a lot of business.

1.20 Mold Removal Question?

Q. Okay, I had a leak in my shower handle core. It leaked in the shared wall with the closet and bathroom. It is a pretty small area along the bottom of the wall next to the floor. I've had a couple companies come give me estimates and it seems they give me two options. 1) Tear out the entire walls and nearly all of the bathroom (including the shower) because mold is probably growing in between the shower pan, along the outside wall etcc.. Costing nearly 2-3 thousand dollars. But, hey they will get all of the mold. 2) Another company said there is no need to tear out the shower. Just fix the mold problem that we can see in the closet and contain as much as we can (some spray?) without taking out the shower. This way apparently takes out the problem area (the leak is fixed). But I'm assuming doesnt kill ever single mold spore as the other estimate offered. And this estimate was roughly ~500 dollars or so. Any advice? Is it imperitive to get every single spore of mold? Edit: Assuming I clean up the leak and the place where a mass of mold has begun to grow. If I were to leave mold in some corner that I couldn't reach.... what kind of issues would this cause? There is no type of moisture anywhere near it now. I might be able to spray some bleach solution back behind there.

A. I would try the least expensive way first, making sure they spray it down with a bleach and water solution-- you don't need fancy chemicals...bleach is the key. You should tear out any drywall that has mold on it-- not necessarily the whole sheet, but get a wide margin around the mold. I'm not clear on whether you can see the mold of it it's behind the wall-- that get's tricky. You want them to take out enough so you can see how far it's spread. If you get it quickly, you shouldn't have to tear out the whole bathroom. Make sure you wear a mask if you're around it, though.

1.20 Info re: mold removal?

Q. I am doing research on companies that will remove mold from homes. What experience (good and bad) have any of you had with these companies? What questions should I be asking? Or, is this something my husband and I can do ourselves? I am thinking the project is too big for us to handle properly. I am also interested in the costs involved. Any constructive information is appreciated. Thanks!

A. If the infestation is not severe and it involves area not larger than 10 square feet, you can probably manage the cleaning process yourself. To clean mold and mildew: 1. Put up appropriate protective attire. Wear goggles, face mask, long rubber gloves and disposable clothing. 2. Contain the infested area with plastic sheeting to prevent molds from infesting other parts of the house when cleaning is in the progress. 3. Mix 1 part of white vinegar to 1 part of water into a spray bottle. Spray the solution onto the contaminated spots. Leave it to stand for at least 15 minutes. Repeat this and wait for another 15 minutes. 4. Scrub off the mold mildew with a mixture of Borax and white vinegar. Repeat this until all the molds are gone. Discard the sponge / brush when the cleaning is done. 5. Rinse well with fresh water or wipe clean using a damp cloth if rinsing is not possible. 6. Allow the area to dry completely. 7. Lastly you may spray some undiluted white vinegar over the cleaned surface to help disinfect and prevent future mold growth. 8. Replace and dispose the severely infested items / material into a securely sealed plastic bag.

1.20 Is there any government help with mold removal?

Q. Our basement is riddled with mold. White fluffy stuff on the floor, and I'm sure other various kinds all over. When it rains, water pours in through cracks in the wall. And we don't really have any great form of drainage. It smells very bad. As far as I know, we haven't been getting sick from it, but you can never tell. Any suggestions? We don't have enough money to have a company come in and remove it, but we have two little girls and i don't want them getting sick. I would love to have the money to do all that but have no idea how we could afford it or even how to do it.

A. Try contacting the Health Dept.

1.20 Can anyone recommend a mold remediation company in the bay area?

Q. I live in san francisco and my room has a really bad case of mold. i've researched some companies but i've read both good and bad reviews so i dont know which company to go with this summer to start the remediation. is there anyone who has dealt with a similar situation and found a company that did a wonderful job for a reasonable price in the bay area? please tell me what your experience was like and the quality of work they did. thanks so much!

A. ERS (http://www.ersers.com/) in Foster City, CA. They're a bit expensive. Very professional folks. I only have experience with their inspection (they visited the affected area at scheduled time, took photos of the areas from inside and outside, wrote up a professional report and also provided a CD with digital photographs they took), not the actual mold removal so don't know much about that. You might also want to check on yahoo locals for more options. http://local.yahoo.com/results;_ylt=ApgGMgrOFBWoMfxMW2gYSjiGNcIF;_ylv=3?p=mold+remediation&csz=san+francisco%2C+ca

1.20 I'm buying a home & mold was found (3 areas) the seller refuses to do a remediation followup. what should i do

Q. Is it safe to continue buying this house? should i definately find out if it's toxic mold before i continue or should i back out of the deal since they don't want to do the remediation proccess? if i buy the house i can fix the mold later myself, right? the house is in las vegas. i am a first time home buyer. i don't want to buy this house if i can't fix the situation myself. the mold is very minor (found in bathroom and in laundryroom). please help me. thanks

A. As stated earlier, dont buy it. Its difficult to tell just how much mold is present. A few black marks on a wall may mean theres more behind it. Or maybe thats it. Often mold removal can be more expensive than the house itself. Could be your seller is trying to hide something?

1.20 Where can I get unbiased information about mold remediation? I think my contractor is...?

Q. ...scamming me. I had a fire and the water damage created a huge mold problem. We brought in a contractor who spent 10 days "remediating," during which he tried to get an extra $3000 from me because he said he didn't realize that the water and the mold leaked down to the cellar. We paid him $10,000 and the insurance company paid him $5,000. He brought in an inspector at the end and now they are telling me more work needs to be done because there were particulates in the air, possibly brought on by the contractors outside installing vinyl siding on the day of the testing -- banging on the walls and opening windows. They want more money to go in and clean and test again, and all work stopped on the house until they finish. But won't the dust just be back the next day, as soon as the contractors go back to work and/or open windows again? I live in New Jersey; there are always particulates in the air. I wish there were some government or other source I could ask about this.

A. Here’s a hidden camera story investigating mold removal contractors. http://www.woai.com/content/troubleshooters/story.aspx?content_id=b36ac5c5-2bc9-4907-962f-1dc5249d2ba1 The story is from Texas and ends with: People who are licensed with the state to assess or remove mold damage have to carry around a special ID that they can show you, and if you want to see a list of the companies that are licensed, you can go to the Texas Department of State Health Services website. Just know, if you have a mold problem that’s larger than a few square feet, it’s illegal for anyone to repair it without reporting the job to the state and going through an assessment process. Here is a link to the EPA site on molds which contains several helpful-looking links. http://www.epa.gov/mold/moldresources.html Here is the New Jersey Dept of Health and Senior Services "black mold" page. It has good links, but unfortunately it looks as though they don’t regulate their inspectors. Still, maybe you can get a second opinion. They have a pdf file of microbiological labs, although they don’t "endorse or qualify" any. If you get someone from there, hopefully they at least have an actual lab and the capability of doing the proper tests. Good luck
