Directory List of Asbestos Abatment or Mold Remediation & Cleanup Companies

Asbestos pipe insulation (C) D FriedmanThis article describes and gives contact information for some of the many outfits who advertise as performing mold, lead, or and asbestos remediation. Other mold remediation companies not listed here may be just fine as well. To avoid any conflict of interest, InspectAPedia.com has no business nor financial relationship with any service provider or product discussed at this website. No fees are charged for directory listings at this website..

Where the asbestos or mold cleanup need is technically challenging due to occupant illness, scope of work, difficulty of containment, or as indicated by an inspection and remediation plan prepared by an expert, the owner/occupant arranging for cleanup should obtain more than a single estimate for the work described in the remediation plan.

The more you can read mold inspection, testing, and cleaning articles that we provide at the MOLD INFORMATION CENTER the better you'll be equipped to judge the competence and honesty of people you are considering hiring.

Avoid Conflicts of Interest Between Asbestos or Mold Testing & Mold Cleanup

Watch out: Avoid a potential conflict of interest. The company or professional you use to inspect and test for mold contamination and to prepare the mold remediation plan should have no business or financial relationship with the mold cleanup or mold remediation company. The post mold remediation clearance inspection and testing can be performed by the original expert who inspected and tested for mold contamination. Independent mold experts who inspect and test for mold are listed at MOLD TESTING SERVICES.

Watch out: hire an expert. Make certain that any environmental testing and remediation plan preparation as well as actual mold, asbestos, or other building environmental cleanup jobs are performed by qualified experts. Details & examples of what can go wrong are at ASBESTOS REMOVAL, Amateur, Incomplete and ASBESTOS REMOVAL CERTIFICATIONS.

More about avoiding a conflict of interest when hiring a professional can be read at CONFLICTS OF INTEREST

When To Perform a Post Mold Remediation Mold Clearance Inspection & Test

Where significant cleanup costs are involved or if there are other risks at the property (such as vulnerable occupants) it is appropriate to schedule a mold clearance inspection and testing after the cleanup is complete, before any new materials are brought into the building, before containment is taken down, and with 24 or more hours of time after the end of cleaning to allow local dust particles to settle (and be tested).

Regardless of which company is involved, the success of the cleanup depends on many factors including the particular site crew and the presence of and expertise of its supervisor.

General Advice on Working With Contractors and Consultants

Be careful how you ask contractors or consultants for advice because if they are nervous they may be inclined to give you advice which is mostly safe for them, not for you, by telling you either that you simply cannot do something, or that you need to do the most extensive and expensive (and profitable for them) steps, tests, repairs, products possible.

We call this the SOPM problem (Spend Other People's Money)- when an attorney, consultant, or other expert spends his/her client's money not so much to benefit the client, but rather, to reduce risk for the consultant that the client will later complain about the consultant's advice. The consultant gives advice that reduces their risk but doesn't cost them a dime, as it's the client paying for additional tests or services.

As a consumer you can reduce your SOPM cost by being straightforward and reasonable in both your conversation with and your expectations of your consultant.

How to Manage a Mold Cleanup Project Successfully

Here are some tips and warnings about mold cleanup jobs, based on our field and laboratory experience:

DO NOT start any expensive mold cleanup problem before we are confident that we fully understand where all of the problem reservoirs may be in the building as well as their causes. For example, often attic mold is not just a fault of bad venting but also high building moisture which could have produced a concern elsewhere.

DO NOT start tearing off your roof or tearing apart other building areas before you know the full extent of all of the mold problems and leaks on the building. For example, tearing off a roof over a moldy attic is unlikely to be necessary unless the roof is itself damaged and the sheathing or framing rotted.

DO NOT agree to any “spray to kill” treatment or “fogging” or “ozone” treatment as a substitute for actually cleaning off or removing moldy materials – sprays alone are ineffective, costly, and sometimes dangerous.

DO NOT rely on mold swabs, mold cultures, or simple air tests for mold alone, as these methods alone as means to screen a building for problem mold are very unreliable.

Where attic or basement mold is visible or where there has been substantial leakage into building wall cavities you should also be concerned that the mold you see may not be the most important mold – there could be other more serious mold reservoirs – another reason to hold off on any testing by someone who doesn’t understand this and who may not know where or how to look.

To Look more carefully at the building yourself - this website has articles on how to look for problem mold,

To Evaluate the leak and moisture history of your building

  • Overall building risk for mold - MOLD EXPOSURE RISK LEVELS, and if there seem to be particularly high risks (building history, what you see, complaints or health risks of occupants) it might be appropriate to hire an expert
  • When to Hire a Professional - MOLD / ENVIRONMENTAL EXPERT, HIRE ? helps decide if it’s appropriate to bring in an pro.

To Do your own Mold Testing

Collect DIY samples of what you see (you wont' address hidden mold in insulation or in building cavities by this method) using tape sampling described at TEST KITS for DUST, MOLD, PARTICLE TESTS

To Hire Mold Experts

Advice About Mold Sprays: Fungicides and Encapsulants for Mold or Particle Control

For details about this topic please see: MOLD SPRAYS, SEALANTS, PAINTS

You will want to establish that the fungicidal mold spray material or mold encapsulant is harmless in all regards, that is, not combustible, non toxic, and that it won't change the building surfaces or any sprayed insulation (such as in HVAC ducts) in a way that harms the equipment (say by corrosivity or by trapping water or moisture, or by interfering with the adhesion
of the insulation in the equipment - we don't want insulation to fall INTO an air handler blower fan or the motor could overheat and cause a fire) - so you can see why people who understand these possible issues would be nervous about an unfamiliar procedure even if it looks acceptable.

Even when you have that mold encapsulant or fungicidal spray use data (most likely in form of general advice from the spray manufacturer), you'll still want to inspect the equipment from time to time, maybe after a few months and then annually, for any sign of a problem (like trapped water, corrosion, unanticipated movement of insulation, or encapsulant falling off).
