How much does mold testing cost in the Houston area?
The average cost of a mold test in the Houston area is $424 and can go as high as $800 according to 69 recent jobs as reported by Home Advisor, who keeps track of prices in this area.
What is your total price?
$395 will be your final price. This is a flat fee cost with no surprises or trying to upsell you once we’re there. Price is based on 4,000 square feet or less and must be in the Houston and surrounding areas.
Can you make money off of your recommendations?
No we can’t. However, most mold inspectors can by writing remediation protocols and doing remediation clearance testing, so buyer beware.
What do I get for that price?
Includes air samples and/or surface samples.
We find out if you have elevated mold spores in the air. Samples are not taken in just 1 or 2 rooms, but in every major room.
Includes air test in each major room to see if there is the possibility of excessive mold spores in the air. We are the only ones who test in each major room. This is done by measuring the 10 micron sized particles, which are the size of most mold spores.
An air sample will be taken in the area where the highest particle counts are found. 5 locations will be tested in that room.
We then send it to the laboratory, so they can identify it and give us how many molds spores there are.
All rooms will be air tested again measuring the volatile organic compounds (VOC). Actively growing mold produces VOCs, which can also cause health symptoms.
With visible mold, surface samples are taken to determine what type of mold.
At the end of the inspection, we will give you a verbal assessment of what we found. Then a formal report will be emailed to you, which will go over everything and give you recommendations and options. By giving you options, this can save you thousands of dollars in remediation cost.
Q: How do people become ill from mold?
Surprisingly, many people do not get ill from mold, but from mold byproducts. Byproducts like mold volatile organic compounds, mycotoxins, endotoxins, proteins and other byproducts.
This is why many do not get sick from mold, even though a large area of mold growth exist … no byproducts are being produced. Likewise, many people can become sick when no mold growth is seen. You need someone who understands this.
Does removing mold help improve illness?
Many mold inspectors find mold and their clients spend thousands of dollars in remediation cost, but have no improvement in health symptoms. Why? The inspector only knows enough to find mold and have it removed and not enough education or experience in industrial hygiene. As crazy sounding as it seems … many people can be exposure to mold, without any mold growth occurring. We understands how this can happen.
