One of the downsides of owning a home is dealing with hidden threats that are not always visible to the eye. Sudden weather changes can cause leaks or moisture that can lead to unwanted organisms in the home. Mold spores are usually harmless, but if they find a spot that has enough moisture, they can grow and infest your home. Mold can not only damage your home, but can also cause health hazards such as allergic reactions, throat irritation, skin irritation, and eye infections. If mold has damaged your home, hiring a mold remediation contractor will be necessary to remove the mold, minimize the risk of the mold spreading to other parts of the home, and reconstruct the infected area.
This list features the best mold remediation contractors in all 50 U.S. states. These contractors were chosen based on their experience, accolades, and services offered. In addition to mold remediation, many of these contractors have emergency services that are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
