The 3 Things You Should Get from Mold Remediation Contractors

Are you in search of a professional mold remediation service? One of the best ways to ensure that you hire a reliable service is by asking for estimates from at least three professionals in your area. With this information, you can have peace of mind that you did your homework before you decided on the service to use.

The process of obtaining and comparing estimates can be confusing if you’ve never had to do it before. You may not even know what to look for. At a minimum, it is important to ensure that the mold remediation contractors provide you with the following three documents:

  1. An itemized estimate for the work to be done

This document will give you a breakdown of the cost of the project. It details exactly what you will be paying for and how much each item will cost you.

Be wary of contractors that do not list exactly what you’re paying for. An estimate that only lists ‘mold remediation’ then gives a dollar amount should be tossed out. You won’t be able to tell exactly what you’re paying for.

An estimate from a reliable company should break down the cost of remediation into items such as garbage removal, labor, equipment, documentation, consumables, materials and more.
