A contractor for mold remediation?

Thumbnail image for wall with hole in itJessica emails:

We just bought a 2nd property to flip for apartments, and the basement ceiling beams are covered with multiple types of mold. We were initially going to do the clean up ourselves, but my allergies can't handle it (even when using a respirator). This is something I want to bring in a professional for. Can the AOA readers recommend any good mold remediation companies? We want someone reliable and affordable.

We wonder if there's any sort of certification or licensing for companies that do this. You know, can anyone call themselves a "mold remediator?" (Here's the state Department of Health's page on mold -- it has some basic background info.)

Got a suggestion or advice for Jessica? Please share!

T.J. Bell Environmental is very competent and professional, but not necessarily affordable, depending on your definition of such.

I've recently been looking at them on Angie's List. I haven't used any, but the reviews there would be helpful in choosing someone. Get estimates from more than one company.

TJ Bell specializes in residential, and has a good track record; for commercial/industrial there are many more. Alpine Environmental has a good testing services.

I second Earth Safe Environmental. Fair price. Good work

Spec-Pro also does a good job.

Hatt's Specialty Cleaning does great mold remediation work and is very affordable. Schuyler, the owner is great to work with and is passionate to help rid homes of mold. He goes by "The Mold Man"!!!! Phone 518-928-5218. http://hattsspecialtycleaning.net/. He has some good Angie's List reviews too.

What a brave young woman. Despite all of the hardships she has endured her main focus is to educate herself in order to spend her life in service to others as a doctor. How inspiring.
