Molds are simple organisms that grow on almost any organic substance as long as there's oxygen and moisture. Small amounts of indoor mold are normal, but large quantities can cause odors, health problems and, in some cases, structural damage to wood.
Removing mold from an average house crawlspace ranges from $500-$4,000, according to Charter Oak Environmental of Connecticut. Overall, a typical mold remediation project to remove mold from the ducts, crawl spaces, walls and attic of a house runs around $2,000-$6,000. And if the mold has caused widespread structural damage, repair costs can increase the total to as much as $10,000-$30,000 or more.
What should be included:
Also called mildew, mold can grow on wood, paper, carpet and food. Although some forms of mold are extremely dangerous or even toxic, most molds are relatively harmless. To reproduce, molds release tiny spores which are often (but not always) airborne. It's not possible to eliminate all mold and mold spores -- the key to controlling mold growth inside your home is controlling moisture. Fix any leaky plumbing or other sources of water, and dry any water-damaged items or areas with 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth.
Usually mold testing or inspection should be done before the remediation work to determine the extent of the problem, and afterward to be sure the process was successful.
