The cost for removing Stachybotrys Chartarum is the same as removing any other type of mold, which means it depends on two factors: the location of the mold in your home and how much is present. Costs can range anywhere from $1,500 to $50,000 (for a complete house gut), so it’s best to contact us about your specific situation.
After we remove the black mold, we’ll provide an independent verification process to validate that the work was successful. An independent mold investigator, other known as a hygienist, is hired to perform a post-remediation verification. The hygienist tests air and surface samples, and conducts a complete visual assessment of the work zone.
