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:
- 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.
- The scope of work
This document will give you an outline of exactly what the contractor will do to remove the mold from your home. It ought to give you a clear picture of what to expect during the remediation process.
If the contractor is not willing to provide you with this information, you should not hire them. You need to be able to see what you are committing to before you sign anything.
- An authorization
The contractor should also provide you with an authorization to proceed. This is a written contract. It is designed protect you as well as the contractor. It outlines what each party is responsible for.
It is important to take a close look at the contract before you sign it. Ensure that everything on the contract is clear to you. If there’s something you’re not sure about, contact the contractor for clarification.
With these three documents, you can make a comprehensive comparison of the different contractors in your area. It is important not to make your decision solely based on the price quoted in the estimate. Examine the information in each document thoroughly to get the best deal.
