The Price of Mold in Texas
Undeniably one of the scariest things to find in your home is mold. The color green is not just associated with it for its appearance. Most insurance policies will not cover the cost of mold remediation and when it comes down to it the price tag can soar sky high. According to Home Advisor "The national average cost for mold remediation is $2,239, with a typical range between $1,115 and $3,362."
The reason for this hefty cost has to do with how difficult it is to become certified in mold remediation. Meaning not just anyone can do it and those that can jump through hoops to comply with all EPA regulations as well as state law. For the state of Texas, this makes it a real challenge.
A Licensed Remediation Contractor must follow a Mold Remediation Protocol on every Mold Remediation job, no matter how big or how small. Only a Texas Licensed Mold Assessment Consultant can write a Mold Remediation Protocol. This requires time and communication between the two and has been know to last anywhere from a couple days to few weeks.
As inconvenient as all this may seem, every obstacle put in place is there for the protection of the residents and the remediators. If not done correctly you could be left back at square one. In the end all the hassle is worth it, leaving you with a worry free and clean environment.
